The Wreck Of The Number Nine

Jim Reeves

 GC
  One dark stormy night not a  star was in sight
 GD
The  North wind came howling down the  line
 GC
There stood a  brave engineer with his  sweetheart so dear
 GDG
And his  orders to  pull old Number  Nine.

 D7GG7
She  kissed him goodbye with a  tear in her  eye
 CGD
The  joy in his  heart he couldn't  hide
 GC
The  whole world seemed right for she  told him that night
 GDG
That  tomorrow she'd  be his blushing  bride.

The wheels hummed a song as the train rolled along
The black smoke came pouring from the stack
The headlight a-gleam seemed to brighten his dream
Of tomorrow when he'd be goin' back.

He sped around the hill and his brave heart stood still
The headlight was shining in his face
He whispered a prayer as he threw on the air
For he knew this would be his final race.

In the wreck he was found lying there on the ground
He asked them to raise his weary head
His breath slowly went as this message he sent
To a maiden who thought she would be wed.

"There's a little white home that I built for our own
Where I dreamed we'd be happy, you and I
But I leave it to you for I know you'll be true
Til we meet at the Golden Gate - goodbye."
