The Slow Train Chords

Great historical song lamenting the closure of many British railway stations 
during the 60s. Originally written and performed by Flanders & Swann.


Miller's Dale for Tideswell ...
Kirby Muxloe ...
Mow Cop and Scholar Green ...

C                    Am                   Dm7      G
No more will I go to Blandford Forum and Mortehoe
C                    Am                   Dm7      G
On the slow train from Midsomer Norton and Mumby Road.
   Em                    Am
No churns, no porter, no cat on a seat
   Dm7                   Bm  E
At Chorlton-cum-Hardy or Chester-le-Street.
   Am                Dm7
We won't be meeting again
On the Slow Train.
[ Tab from: ]
I'll travel no more from Littleton Badsey to Openshaw.
At Long Stanton I'll stand well clear of the doors no more.
No whitewashed pebbles, no Up and no Down
From Formby Four Crosses to Dunstable Town.
I won't be going again
On the Slow Train.

       Em                      Dm7
On the Main Line and the Goods Siding
The grass grows high
       Em              Dm7
At Dog Dyke, Tumby Woodside
And Trouble House Halt.

The Sleepers sleep at Audlem and Ambergate.
No passenger waits on Chittening platform or Cheslyn Hay.
No one departs, no one arrives
From Selby to Goole, from St Erth to St Ives.
They've all passed out of our lives
On the Slow Train, on the Slow Train.

Cockermouth for Buttermere ... on the Slow Train,
Armley Moor Arram ...
Pye Hill and Somercotes ... on the Slow Train,
Windmill End.
