Thread Name: Casey's last ride - meaning?
Subject: RE: Casey's last ride - meaning?
The title presumably is a reference to Hobo Bill's Last Ride, sung by Hank Snow. Which being about death ties in with my hunch Casey might be thinking about death, and possibly even jumping under a train.

Like most good songs it can mean just about anything the singer has in mind. Or the listener for that matter.
