Vernon Dalhart

"Wreck Of The Old ’97"

[Instrumental Intro]

[Verse 1]
They give him his orders
At Monroe, Virginia
Sayin' Pete "you're way behind time
This is not '38, but it's old '97
You must put her in Spencer on time"

[Verse 2]
He looked 'round an' said
To his black, greasy fireman
"Jus' shove on in a little more coal
And when we cross that wide old mountain
You can watch old '97 roll"

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 3]
It's a mighty rough road
From Lynchburg to Danville
In a line on a three mile grade
It was on that grade
That he lost his air brake
And you see what a jump he made
