Song Lyrics

Engine 143

Along came the FFV the swiftest on the line

Running o`er the C&O road just twenty minutes behind

Running into Sou`ville headquarters on the line

Receiving there strict orders from a station just behind

Georgie`s mother came to him with a bucket on her arm

Saying my darling son be careful how you run

For many a man has lost his life in trying to make lost time

And if you run your engine right you`ll get there just on time

Up the road he darted against the rocks he crashed

Upside down the engine turned and Georgie`s br**st was smashed

His head lay against the firebox door the flames were rolling high

I`m glad to be born for an engineer on the C&O road to die

The doctor said to Georgie my darling boy lie still

Your life may yet be saved if it is God`s blessed will

Oh no said George that will not do I want to die so free

I want to die with the engine I love one hundred and forty three

The doctor said to Georgie your life cannot be saved

Murdered upon a railroad and laid in a lonesome grave

His face was covered up with blood his eyes they could not see

And the very last words poor Georgie said was nearer my God to thee
