The Wreck of Old 97

http://www.lizlyle.lofgrens.org/RmOl...TOS-Old97.html


Quote:
Complete Lyrics:
They gave him his orders down at Monroe, Virginia,
Saying, "Steve, you're way behind time;
This is not 38, but it's Old 97,
You must set her into Spencer on time."

He turned around, saying to his black, greasy fireman,
"Just heave in a little more coal,
And when we reach that White Oak Mountain,
You just watch Old 97 roll."

It's a mighty rough road from Lynchburg to Danville,
And Lima's on a three-mile grade;
It was on that grade that he lost his air brakes,
You can see what a jump he made.

He was going down grade, doing ninety miles an hour,
When his whistle began to scream;
They found him in the wreck, with his hand on the throttle.
He was scalded to death by the steam.

A message arrived at Washington Station,
And this is what it read:
Those two brave men who pulled Old 97
Are lying in Danville, dead."

Oh, ladies, you must take warning,
From this time on and learn:
Never speak harsh words to your true loving husband,
He may leave you and never return.

The best train ride I ever had was from Zurich to Genoa with my wife back in the days when you could still open the windows and hang your head out to stare at the mountains!

Great scenery, great bread, sweet salami, stinky cheese and more than one bottle of wine.
