Thread Name: Lyr Add: Wreck of the Old 97
Subject: Wreck of the Old 97
Way up on the mountain one cold freezin mornin'
Just watchin' the smoke from below
It was boilin' up from a short black smokestack
Way down on that Southern Railroad

It was the Old 97 the fastest mail train
That runs on the Southern Line
And when she pulled into Monroe, Virginia
She was 47 minutes behind time.

Thought you would like to add the first two verses to this tune to your data base also. Makes the song have a little more sense also. Enjoy -- Steve
