Downbound Train chords
Bruce Springsteen

Capo III

Em G D Dsus4 D Dsus4 D 2x

        Em           G
I had a job, I had a girl
I had something going mister in this world
           Em                     G
I got laid off down at the lumber yard
Our love went bad, times got hard
      Cmaj7            D
Now I work down at the car wash
Where all it ever does is rain
          C                  D          Em         D   
Don t you feel like you re a rider on a down bound train

              Em          G
She just said Joe I gotta go
We had it once we ain t got it any more
               Em             G
She packed her bags left me behind
She bought a ticket on the central line
            Cmaj7                      D
Nights as I sleep, I hear that whistle whining
I feel her kiss in the misty rain
      C               D          Em         D
And I feel like I m a rider on a down bound train

Em G D  2x

     Em                 G
Last night I heard your voice
You were crying, crying, you were so alone
              Em             G
You said your love had never died
You were waiting for me at home
          Em                        G
Put on my jacket, I ran through the woods
I ran till I thought my chest would explode
         Em                       G
There in the clearing, beyond the highway
In the moonlight, our wedding house shone
                     Em                        G
I rushed through the yard, I burst through the front door
My head pounding hard, up the stairs I climbed
             Em                G
The room was dark, our bed was empty
Then I heard that long whistle whine
      Cmaj7                                 G
And I dropped to my knees, hung my head and cried

      C                          D         
Now I swing a sledge hammer on a road gang
Knocking down them cross ties, working in the rain
             C                  D          Em         D
Now don t it feel like you re a rider on a down bound train

Em G D Dsus4 D Dsus4 D 5x
