[Intro: G x2]

G                                            G7
I know I had to leave you, there's work to be done
C                                                G
I swear when this job is over, it's to you I'm gonna run
G                                            G7
Long wind(?) blow, blow on down the line
C                                                 G
I'll be in the arms of my darling, in just three weeks time

C                G             C            G
I'll be coming home, pockets full of bills
C               G               D           G
I'll be coming home, speed of a whippoorwill

[Break: G x2]

G                                       G7
Roll tracks, roll, lay a half mile-a-day
C                                               G
Set the spike and the hammer, fill my pockets with pay
G                                         G7
Dynamite that rock, keep the cross ties flat and square
C                                                G
Dreams of my darling, two weeks till I'm there

C                G             C        G
I'll be coming home, ready for a thrill
C                G             D             G
I'll be coming home, speed of a whippoorwill


[Instrumental chorus x1 (4 bars)]

G                                      G7
Water boy come running, I'm dry as the dirt
C                                               G
The days keep getting longer, I've got hurt on top of hurt
G                                        G7
I hear the steam engine, rolling from the west
C                                                  G
Tracks will join in a few more days, and I'll finally get my rest

C                G             C       G
I'll be coming home, ready for a thrill
C                G             D            G
I'll be coming home, speed of a whippoorwill
C                G             C            G
Yes I'll be coming home, pockets full of bills
C                G             D            G
I'll be coming home, speed of a whippoorwill

[Instrumental chorus x3 (12 bars) until end]
