Casey Jones (1864–1900) was an American locomotive engineer assigned to drive the Cannon Ball express—a particularly dangerous run. In 1900, confronted with a stationary freight train ahead of his speeding locomotive, he ordered his fireman to jump, applied the brakes, and although the Cannon Ball crashed and Jones was killed, the passengers were saved.

The lyrics are based on an earlier version by Wallis Sanders, supposedly a friend of Casey Jones.
