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 blazin' she's a burnin' up the wind
Burnin' up the wind, burnin' up the wind
With her smokestack blazin' she's a burnin' 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 feelin' 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 ringin'
Hear that bell a ringin', dongin' and a dingin'
All aboard good people, can't you hear that bell a ringin'
The Tennessee Central No. 9

Gonna hit that mountain just a rockin' and a reelin'
Rockin' and a reelin', moanin' and a squealin'
Gonna hit that mountain just a rockin' and a reelin'
On the Tennessee Central No. 9

When she leaves the station she'll be pantin' and a blowin'
Pantin' and a blowin', gettin' and a goin'
When she leaves the station she'll be pantin' and a blowin'
It's the Tennessee Central No. 9

We'll roll into Knoxville just a shoutin' and a singin'
Shoutin' and a singin', swayin' and a swingin'
We'll roll into Knoxville just a shoutin' and a singin'
On 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 feelin' I must go when I hear that whistle blow
On the Tennessee Central No. 9
