Boxcars.
Joe Ely.
Album: Down On The Drag.

Intro: Em Baug Em B7

Em                              
Well I gave all my money to the banker this month,
      Am7                  Em 
Now I got no more money to spend, 
Em                                Am7          Em
She smiled when she saw me comin' through that door, 
       Am7                     B7 
When I left she said come back again, 
Em                                     
I watched them lonesome boxcar wheels, 
Am7                            Em
Turnin' down the tracks out of town,
Em                                                  
And it's on that lonesome railroad track, 
          C      B      Em
I'm gonna lay my burden down.

Gmaj7 A x2

Em                                                                                                                                                            
I was raised on a farm the first years of my life,  
Am7                       Em
Life was pretty good they say,
Em                                                                                               
I'll probably live to be some ripe old age, 
   Am7                     B7
If death'll stay out of my way, 
Em                                                               
This world can take my money and time, 
       Am7                Em
But it sure can't take my soul, 
Em                                                                             
I'm goin' down to the railroad tracks, 
           C         B       Em
Watch them lonesome boxcars roll.
                     
Gmaj7 A x2

Em
There's some big ol' Buicks at the Baptist church, 
Am7                        Em
Cadillacs at the Church of Christ, 
Em                                                                    
I parked my camel by an old haystack, 
        Am7                        B7
I'll be lookin for that needle all night, 
Em          
There ain't gonna be no radial tires, 
Am7                         Em
Turnin' down the streets of gold, 
Em                                                                                   
I'm going down to the railroad tracks, 
               C        B       Em
And watch them lonesome boxcars roll. 

Break: Gmaj7 A x2 - Am7 Em Cmaj7 Bm6 
       Em Em7 Baug Em A Gmaj7 A

Em                                                                                        
Now if you ever heard the whistle on a fast freight train, 
Am7                     Em
Beatin' out a beautiful tune, 
Em                                                                                               
If you ever seen the cold blue railroad tracks, 
Am7                         B7
Shinin' by the light of the moon, 
Em                                                                             
If you ever felt the locomotive shake the ground, 
Am7                         Em
I know you don't have to be told, 
Em                                                                                        
Why I'm goin down to the railroad tracks, 
               C        B       Em   Gmaj7 A x2
And watch them lonesome boxcars roll, 
      Em                      
Yeah, I'm going down to the railroad tracks,  
           C        B       Em
Watch them lonesome boxcars roll.
