drivin' that train

Put my money in your meter,
so it won't run down.
But you caught me in the squeeze play
on the cheesy side of town.
Throw me a dime, throw me a line -
'cause there's a fat man in the bathtub with the blues.
Fat Man in the Bathtub
Little Feat

Was it Casey Jones or Casey at the bat
Who died out of pride and got famous for that?
Killed by a swerve, laid low by the curve -
Do you ever think they ever thought
they got what they deserved?
To the Dogs or Whoever
Josh Ritter
