Freight Train
Written by Fred Eaglesmith
Recorded by Alan Jackson

(Capo on 3)

Intro.:  (Em) x 8

I (Em)just came down from Chippewa, had as (C)station wagon and a hundred dollars
(D)Thinkin' about the girl I'd lost a (Em)year before
I hadn't seen her for some time, thought (C)I might go on by
When your (D)memory came floodin' in and you (Em)closed that door

Wish it was a (Em) freight train baby, wish it was a (C)diesel locomotive
I'd come (D)whistlin' down your track (Em)crashin' in your door
Wish it was a freight train baby, wish it didn't (C)have a heart
You need a (D)shovel for the coal (Em)just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train baby, wish it was a (C) freight train baby
Wish it was a (D) freight train (Em)

Well (Em)every time I talk to you I (C)hear your jealous lines
I (D)feel like I've been left abandoned on (Em)some old railway side
And every time I hear your voice my (C)water just gets cold
My (D)stoker will not stoke and my (Em)boiler will not boil.

Repeat Chorus

Inst.:  | (Em) | (Em) | (C) | (C) | (D) | (D) | (Em) | (Em) |
        | (Em) | (Em) | (C) | (C) | (D) | (D) | (Em) | (Em) | (Em) | (Em)

Well (Em)every time I fell behind I (C)could not get ahead
I (D)wish someone would pull the lever and (Em)give me a little sand
And every time I slip behind (C)even further back
I (D)wish some switch man would come out of the (Em)fog and change my track

Repeat Chorus

Inst.:  | (Em) | (Em) | (C) | (C) | (D) | (D) | (Em) | (Em) | x 4

Repeat Chorus

Inst.:  | (Em) | (Em) | (C) | (C) | (D) | (D) | (Em) | (Em) | repeat times to fade
