Intro: ( F#m E/F# Bm/F#  F#m ) x2   ( A-B )x5

                 A   -    B       A-B        A    -     B          A-B
Well I bumped inside the magic man,  and he laid some tricks on me
                  A -  B                        A   E-A         E-A E-A A-B
He said, "you do need help my friend", I whispered,    "obviously"
             A   -   B              A-B        A   -   B          A-B
He laid a spread of jacks and queens,  and he bade me take my pick
           A   -   B                      A  E-A    E -A   E-A
But every face it had your face, I cried out,   "I am sick"

 E             -B/D#  C#m                  B              A   B
Sick of hauling your love around, want to run the train alone
 E             -B/D#    C#m                              B                A  A-B-C#m-F#m
But the engine tracks straight through your heart, and weighs me like a stone

            F#m                              E/F#                     Bm/F#
Oh, it's a hard load to love you, it takes up, all my time, having you
                             F#m                 F#m E/F# Bm/F# F#m  A-B
So familiar, like last life's, nursery rhyme
            A   -   B      A-B             A - B   A-B
So I gave away the pictures,  and your golden ring
                      A   -   B                A            E  -  A   E-A E-A A-B
And the phone calls that you sent me, and the silver birds, that sing
                 A   -   B       A-B              A    -    B  A-B
Then the man he told me something,  that really brought me down
                    A -   B                   A  E-A      E - A       E-A 
Your things were thrown away, it's true, but you,  were still in town

 E             -B/D#  C#m                B              A   B
Sick of hauling your love around, wanna run the train alone
 E             -B/D#    C#m                              B                A  A-B-C#m-F#m
But the engine tracks straight through your heart, and weighs me like a stone

           F#m                               E/F#                     Bm/F#
Oh, it's a hard load to love you, it takes up, all my time, having you
                             F#m               F#m E/F# Bm/F# F#m  A-B
So familiar, like last life's, nursery rhyme
              A  -  B     A-B            A  -  B   A-B
The magician let a message, it flashes when I hide
             A    -   B                        A               E   -   A 
Accept the chains of loving, accept or else remove yourself, from her side
 E -A                  E-A A-B                A   -   B        A-B           A -   B  A-B
And do without her love,      and I lay back with a steel chain,  I keep it by my side, 
            A -  B                    A  E-A       E - A    E-A 
I could mail, a letter to you but I still,   have my pride

 E             -B/D#  C#m                B              A   B
Sick of hauling your love around, wanna run the train alone
 E             -B/D#    C#m                              B                A 
But the engine tracks straight through your heart, and weighs me like a stone
 E              -B/D#     C#m                   B                  A   B
Three times I've sent you back from me, three times my bones gone dry
      E             -B/D#      C#m             B                A  A-B-C#m-F#m
And three times I've seen the shooting shark, lighting up the sky

           F#m                                  E/F#
Oh, it's a hard load to love you, babe, it takes my breath away
     Bm/F#                                  F#m                       
The fourth time round, is the last time round, there's nothing else to say

Out solo:  ( F#m E/F# Bm/F# F#m ) repeat and fade
