Chorus

A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back
D                              A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back
D                                     A
She took everything she wanted in an old gunny sack
E                              A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back

A
My baby wears though spike heeled boots
D                                 A
My honey wears those high heeled boots
           D
She wears them black leather boots
     A
She tied me up and turned me loose
                       E          A
She's leaving on that new river train

A                              
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back
D                            A
She Amtrak and ain't coming back
D                                     A
She took everything she wanted in an old gunny sack
E                              A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back

Inst: | A | A | A | A | D | A | A E | A |
 
A
She used to be my hot hippy honey
D                         A
Oh and I was her natural man
      D                      A                      
Then all our troubles got started when
                   E             A
I joined up with this hillbilly band

A
I started staying out all hours of the night 
D                            A
And winding up drunk and in jail
D                          A
The last thing she said through them cold iron bars
              E                   A
Was this time I won't throw your bail

A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back
D                              A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back
D                                          A   
I guess she would have stayed here if I'd cut some slack

E                              A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back

A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back, lordy lord
D                              A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back
D                                          A
I guess she would have stayed here if I'd cut some slack
E                              A
She's Amtrak and ain't coming back

adios honey!
