"Casey Jones" is a song by Grateful Dead which is supposedly based on the real life happenings of the heroic engineer Casey Jones, but in reality the song really only borrowed the name. It was doubtful Jones was high on cocaine when he took over the train, and although his life was ended when he was hit by a train traveling the wrong way, he sacrificed his life so those on board could be saved.
