Downbound Train Chords

      Gm              Bb
I had a job, I had a girl
I had something going mister in this world
           Gm                        Bb
I got laid off down at the lumber yard
Our love went bad, times got hard
             Eb          F
Now I work down at the carwash
Where all it ever does is rain
            Eb                 F           Gm  Eb   F
Don't you feel like you're a rider on a downbound train

                Gm          Bb
She just said "Joe I gotta go
We had it once we ain't got it any more"
                 Gm              Bb
She packed her bags left me behind
She bought a ticket on the Central Line
              Eb                          F
Nights as I sleep, I hear that whistle whining
I feel her kiss in the misty rain
         Eb             F           Gm  Eb   F
And I feel like I'm a rider on a downbound train

        Gm               Bb
Last night I heard your voice
You were crying you were so alone
               Gm             Bb
You said your love had never died
You were waiting for me at home
           Gm                        Bb
Put on my jacket, I ran through the woods
I ran till I thought my chest would explode
                 Gm                  Bb
There in the clearing, beyond the highway
In the moonlight, our wedding house shone
                       Gm                        Bb
I rushed through the yard, I burst through the front door
My head pounding hard, up the stairs I climbed
               Gm                Bb
The room was dark, our bed was empty
Then I heard that long whistle whine
         Eb                                 Bb
And I dropped to my knees, hung my head and cried

               Eb                          F
Now I swing a sledge hammer on a railroad gang
Knocking down them cross ties, working in the rain
              Eb                 F            Gm  Eb  F
Now don't it feel like you're a rider on a downbound train

Have Fun!!
