Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
Em G:D | Em  - x2
Em G:D
{{*}}
Verse 1:
Em                         G D
  In the shuffling madness
Em                   G D
Of locomotive breath
Em                        G D
  Runs the all-time loser
B
  Headlong to his death.
{{*}}
D       Em                  G
Oh, he feels the pistons scraping,
  D     Em                  G
Steam breaking on his brow.
D     G                A
Old Charlie stole the handle
          B
And the train, it won't stop going,
            D   Em ->
No way to slow down.
{{*}}
Instrumental:
Em | Em G:D | Em | Em G:D
        Oh,   oh.
{{*}}
Verse 2:
Em                                 G D
  He sees his children jumping off
Em                        G D
  At stations one by one.
Em                              G D
  His woman and his best friend
B
  In bed and having fun.
{{*}}
D          Em                    G
Oh, he's crawling down the corridor
D Em                      G
  On his hands and knees.
D     G                A
Old Charlie stole the handle
          B
And the train, it won't stop going,
            D   Em ->
No way to slow down.
{{*}}
Instrumental:

        Hey,  hey!
{{*}}
Verse 3:
Em                              G D
  He hears the silence howling,
 Em                          G D
Catches angels as they fall,
Em                        G D
  And the all-time winner
B
  Has got him by the balls.
{{*}}
D       Em                G
Oh, he picks up Gideon's Bible,
D Em                G
  Open at page one.
    D    G                A
I thank God he stole the handle,
          B
And the train, it won't stop going,
            D   Em
No way to slow down.
