Bruce Springsteen                              Ebmaj7 (x x 1 3 3 3)

Intro x2:

        Gm            Bb                    F
I had a job, I had a girl  I had something going mister in this world
           Gm                      Bb                   F
I got laid off down at the lumber yard   Our love went bad, times got hard
     Ebmaj7               F            F                    Gm
Now I work down at the carwash   Where all it ever does is rain
           Eb                 F          Gm         F
Don't you feel like you're a rider on a downbound train

               Gm          Bb              F
She just said "Joe I gotta go    We had it once we ain't got it any more"
                Gm             Bb                  F
She packed her bags left me behind   She bought a ticket on the Central Line
            Ebmaj7                       F                  F                Gm
Nights as I sleep, I hear that whistle whining  I feel her kiss in the misty rain
       Eb              F          Gm         F
And I feel like I'm a rider on a downbound train

| Eb | F | F | Gm | Eb | F | Gm | F |

      Gm                Bb                       F 
Last night I heard your voice   You’re crying, crying  you were so alone
               Gm             Bb             F
You said your love had never died  You were waiting for me at home
           Gm                        Bb                    F
Put on my jacket, I ran through the woods   I ran till I thought my chest 
                               Gm                  Bb
would explode   There in the clearing, beyond the highway
        F                                                         Gm 
In the moonlight, our wedding house shone   I rushed through the yard,
                      Bb                           F
I burst through the front door   My head pounding hard, up the stairs I climbed
              Gm               Bb              F
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         F
Now don't it feel like you're a rider on a downbound train

Gm    Bb    F    F      (with intro)
