Here is a perfect Casey Jones for u.I kno the timing but i guess ull have to figure that out on ur own. I can tell u that u use pretty much all fast hard downstrokes, except in the second half of the verse (ie "At a quarter to ten you know it's travlin' again.")

Intro
E|--8-8---8--3-3--------------------------
B|--8h10--8--4p3--------------------------
G|----------------5--2-------------5v-----
D|----------------------3--5--5/7---------
A|----------------------------------------
E|----------------------------------------

Chorus (Jerry)
E|--8---8---8---8---x--------------------------------
B|--8---8---8---8---x--6--6--6--6-6--6--6--6--6-6--6-
G|--9---9---9---9---x--5--5--5--5-5--5--5--5--5-5--5-
D|--10--10--10--10--x--7--7--7--7/8--8--7--7--7/8--8-

you play this whole thing twice

Verse

C (open)-----------------D (c form)
This old engine makes it on time,
F (c form)------------------------G (c form)
Leaves Central Station 'bout a quarter to nine,
C (open)---------------------D (c form)
Hits River Junction at seventeen to,
F (open)-------E7(open)-----------Am(open)- G (open)
At a quarter to ten you know it's travlin' again.

(use these chord forms)
It is also important to note that in the "Trouble ahead, Lady in red" line you need need to hit a c form C# chord once in between the C and the D

Chorus (Bob)

You should pretty much be able to make the whole song out of that, but at the end of the song the way they play the chorus changes and i have forgotten how to do that, so u should probly find it elsewhere or just play it like the other choruses, there is also a nice little chord progression during the last line of the song that im sure u should be able to find sumwhere else. But other than that, what ive given u here is the real deal

Not bad. But I think Ill stick to the version I tabbed. The progression, by the way, at the end of the song is Am D G C

Thanx for the tabs. Do you have by any chance Dire Wolf tabs? I just can't find a version I like.
