FREIGHT TRAIN BOOGIE
(Scott - Nobar)
DELMORE BROTHERS (KING 5866)

Casey Jones, he was a mighty man
But now he's resting in the promised land
The kind of music he could understand
Was an eight wheel ridin' under his command
He made a freight train boogie, all the time
He made a freight train boogie as he rolled down the line

When that farmer started ringin' the bell
Everybody along the line could tell
Casey Jones, he was comin' to town
On a six-eight wheeler that was tremblin' the ground
He made a freight train boogie, all the time
He made a freight train boogie as he rolled down the line

He made a freight train boogie, all the time
He made a freight train boogie as he rolled down the line

Additional verse by THE LOUVIN BROTHERS (CAPITOL, 1960)

The Delmore Brothers was a mighty team
They could play the boogie and sing like a dream
They rocked this nation with a brand new beat
When the freight train boogie got 'em on their feet
They made the freight train boogie, all the time
They made the freight train boogie as they rolled down the line
