On a cold winter night not a star was in sight
The north wind come howling down the line
Stood With his sweetheart so dear stood a brave engineer
With his orders to pull old Number Nine

He kissed her goodbye with a tear in her eye
The joy in his heart he could not hide
The whole world seemed bright as she told him that night
Tomorrow she'd be his blushing bride

Well the wheels hummed a song as the trained rolled along
The black smoke come pouring from the stack
The headlight that gleam seemed to brighten his dream
For tomorrow when he'd be going back

He rounded the hill his brave heart stood still
A headlight was shining in his face
He murmered a prayer as he threw on the air
For he knew that he had run his final race

In the wreck he was found lying there on the ground
And he asked them to raise his weary head
His breath slowly went this message he sent
To the maiden who thought that she'd be wed

There's a little white home that I bought for our own
Where I dreamed we'd be happy by and by
I leave it to you for I know you'll be true
Till we meet at that Golden Gate, good bye
