Verse:
Come all you round - ers, if you want to hear,  A sto - ry 'bout a brave en - gi - neer.
Ca - sey Jones was the round - er's name,  On a six eight wheel - er, boys he won his fame.
The call - er called Cas - ey at a half past four,  Kissed his wife at the sta - tion door.
Moun -ted to the cab -in with his or- ders in his hand,  And he took his fare -well trip to that Prom - ised Land.
 
Chorus:
Ca - sey Jones,  moun - ted to the cab - in.  Ca - sey Jones,  With his or - ders in his hand.
Ca - sey Jones,  moun - ted to the cab - in,  And he took his fare - well trip to the Prom - ised Land.
Ca - sey Jones,  moun - ted to the cab - in.  Ca - sey Jones,  With his or - ders in his hand.
