The Wreck of the Old Number 9 - Jim Reeves (吉姆·裏夫斯)

One dark stormy night not a

Star was in sight

 

The North wind came howling

Down the line

 

There stood a brave engineer

 

With his sweetheart so dear

And his orders to pull old

Number Nine

 

She kissed him goodbye

With a tear in her eye

 

The joy in his heart he

Couldn't hide

 

The whole world seemed

Right for she told him that night

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 "
