A Train Not Running
By Chris Knight
Written By Chris Knight/Stacy Dean Campbell 
CD  The Jealous Kind

The sound of a train not running 
         Em          G
Has been keeping me awake 
The Westmoreland mine ain't run much coal 
     Em         Cadd9
Since back in '88 
Got on at the sawmill 
                Em             G
But I've got to find a better way 
Or the sound of a train not running 
         Cadd9      G
Is gonna carry me away 

And every time you look at me, Mary 
C                  G
I want to tell you someday 
We'll leave the sound of a train not running 
Cadd9             G
A thousand miles away 

I don't want to risk my freedom 
        Em               G 
Growing crops on company land 
But it'd be a damned sight better 
                  Em          Cadd9
Than a government check in my hand 

I used to bring home good money 

You used to drive a decent car 

But now we go to town on Saturday 

It seems a little too far


Now some nights when our baby cries 
  Em               G
I feel a twinge of fear 
When the sound of a train not running 
Cadd9               G
Is the only thing I hear

pssst, i think some people are looking for the picking pattern to
this song, lol

Not sure of the correct way but this ain't key

Try these chords with no capo it sounds a bit better

I know the pick pattern comment is old but, the question could still arise. It is a "6-2-3-1" pattern. You just have to play with it. I've heard Chris play this tune in a few different recordings. He never plays it the exact same way in each.
