Oh, that big black engine comes a puffin' round the bend
Puffin' round the bend puffin' round the bend
Oh, that big black engine comes a puffin' round the bend
It's the Tennessee Central No. 9

With her smokestack blazing, she's a-burning up the wind
Burning up the wind, burning up the wind
With her smokestack blazing. she's a-burning up the wind
It's the Tennessee Central No. 9

Oh. that ol' TC, it's good enough for me
Let the flagman give that engineer the sign
Get a feeling I must go when I hear that whistle blow
On the Tennessee Central No. 9

All aboard good people, can't you hear that bell a-ringing?
Hear that bell a-ringing donging and a-dinging
All aboard good people, can't you hear that bell a-ringing?
The Tennessee Central No. 9

Gonna hit that mountain just a-rocking and a-reeling
Rocking and a-reeling, moaning, and a-squealing
Gonna hit that mountain just a-rocking and a-reeling
On the Tennessee Central No. 9

When she leaves the station, she'll be panting and a-blowing
Panting and a-blowing, getting and a-going
When she leaves the station, she'll be panting and a-blowing
It's the Tennessee Central No. 9

We'll roll into Knoxville just a-shouting and a-singing
Shouting and a-singing, swaying and a-swinging
We'll roll into Knoxville just a-shouting and a-singing
On the Tennessee Central No. 9
Oh, that old TC
