Deckman Lyr Req: A song help, please (bawdy Casey Jones) (7) Lyr Req: A song help, please 23 Apr 16

Some fifty years ago, I heard a version, or perhaps a "perversion" of the American song "Casey Jones." In some verses, it got a little raunchy, by fifty years ago standards. I can only remember one verse:

"Casey said just before he died,
   There's two more things I'd like to ride,
The fireman said, what could be,
A bowlegged woman and a Ferris wheel."

I know this is wrong, and I suspect I've got it mixed up with a version of the song of Jay Gould.

I'd appreciate it if anyone can steer me straight. Thanks ... bob(deckman)nelson
