ENGINE 143 Version 2 (with harmonica)
CARTER FAMILY

Here is another version of this classic song, with a
melody tab for a C Harmonica. The numbers without the minus
sign means blow, and the ones with the minus sign means
draw(breathe in). Modify it to fit your style of preference
I play it differently than this way myself.

Verse 1:

  C

4 4    4    -4  5 5 5
A-long came the F.F.E.

    F                C

-4  4     -4  4  4   4
The swift-est on the line

C  

6   6   6   5   6    -6 6
Run-nin oer the C and O Road

     D7                  G    
     
5    -4   -4 -4  -4   5  -4
Just twen-ty min-utes be-hind

C 

6   6   6 5  6   6
Run-nin into Sou-ville

C7   F                C

5 -4 4    -4   4  -3  4 
Head-quar-ters on the line

   C                     A7

4  4    4   4     -4     5  5
Re-ceiv-ing their strict or-ders

       D7       G7      C

5    5 -4  -4   5    -4 -4

Verse 2:
C
Georgies Mother came to hime
  F             C 
A bucket on her arm
C
Sayin to er darlin son
   D7              G
Be careful how you run
C                       C7 
Many a man has lost his life
F                  C
Tryin to make lost time
    C               A7
And if you run your engine right
      D7        G7      C 
Youll get there just in time

Verse 3:
Up the road she darted
Against the rocks she crashed
Upsidedown the engine turned
And Georgies breast did smash
His head against the fire-box door
The flames were rollin high
"Im glad I was born for an engineer
On the C and O Road to die"

Verse 4:
The doctor said to Georgie
"My darlin son be stil
Your life may yet be saved
If it is Gods blessed will"
"Oh no" said George "That will not do
I wish to die so free
I wish to die for the engine I love
One hundred and fortythree"

Verse 5:
The doctor said to Georgie
"Your life it cant be saved
Murdered upon a railroad line
And laid in a lonesome grave"
His face was covered up with blood
His eyes you could not see
And the very last words poor Georgie said
Were "Nearer my God to thee"
