[Dm] [C] [Dm] [C] [Dm] [Dsus4] [Dm][C] [Dm] [C] [Dm] [C] [Dm][Dsus4] [Dm] [Dm]There's a Spanish train that runs between [Bb]Quadelquidir and old Seville and at [C]dead of night the whistle blows and people [A7]hear she's running [Dm]still. And then they [Dm]hush their children back to sleep, [Bb]lock the doors upstairs they creep, for [C]it is said that the souls of the dead fill up the [A7]train, ten thousand [Dm]deep. Well a [Dm]railway-man lay dying with his [Bb]people [C]by his [Dm]side, his family were crying knelt in [Bb]prayer before he [A7]died. But ab[Bb]ove his bed just w[C]aiting for the dead was the d[A7]evil with a twinkle in his [Dm]eye. Well, [Bb]God's not around look w[C]hat I've found? This one's [Dm]mine. Just then the Lord himself appeared in a b[Bb]linding f[C]lash of l[Dm]ight. And shouted at the devil, get thee h[Bb]ence to e[A7]ndless night. But the d[Bb]evil just grinned and said I [C]may have sinned but there's [Am]no need to push me [Dm]around. I [Bb]got here first so you can [C]do your worst, he's going under g[Dm]round. Well I [Dm]think I give you one more chance said the d[Bb]evil [C] with a [Dm]smile, so t[Dm]hrow away that stupid lance. 'It's r[Bb]eally not your s[A7]tyle'. J[Bb]oker is the name, p[C]oker is the game, we'll [A7]play right here on this [Dm]bed. And [Bb]then we'll bet for the b[C]iggest stakes yet - the souls of the d[Dm]ead. And I said, l[Bb]ook out L[C]ord he's gonna [Dm]win, The [Bb]sun is down and the [C]night's riding [Dm]in. That t[Bb]rain is dead on t[A7]ime, many s[Dm]ouls are on the l[Gm]ine, oh L[Bb]ord, he's g[A7]onna [Dm]win. Now the [Dm]railway-man he cut the cards and he dealt [Bb]each a [C]hand of [Dm]five. And for the Lord he was praying hard for that [Bb]train he'd have to [A7]drive, Well, the d[Bb]evil he had three [C]aces and a king and the [A7]Lord he was running for a [Dm]straight he had the [Bb]queen and the knave the nine and [C]ten of spades all he needed was the [Dm]eight, and then the Lord, he called for one more card but he [Bb]drew t[C]he diamond [Dm]eight. And the devil said to the Son of God, 'I b[Bb]elieve you've got it s[A7]traight, so d[Bb]eal me one for the time has [C]come to see who'll be [Am]the king of this [Dm]place', But [Bb]as he spoke from ben[C]eath his cloak he slipped ano[Dm]ther ace. Ten th[Dm]ousand souls was the opening bid, but it [Bb]soon went [C]up to fifty-[Dm]nine, but th[Dm]e Lord didn't see what the devil did and [Bb]he said, 'that suits me f[A7]ine.' I'll [Bb]raise you high to [C]hundred-five and for[A7]ever put an end to your [Dm]sins. But [Bb]the devil let out a [C]mighty shout 'my hand [Dm]wins'. And i said, L[Bb]ord oh, L[C]ord you let him [Dm]win, The [Bb]sun is down and the [C]night's riding [Dm]in. The t[Bb]rain is dead on t[A7]ime, many s[Dm]ouls are on the l[Gm]ine, oh L[Bb]ord, d[A7]on't let him [Dm]win. [Dm]Well that Spanish train still runs between [Bb]Quadelquidir and old Seville and at [C]dead of night the whistle blows and people [A7]fear she's running [Dm]still. And far away in [Dm]some recess the [Bb]Lord and the devil are now playing chess. The [C]devil still cheats and wins more souls and as for the [A7]Lord well, he's just doing his [Dm]best, And i said, L[Bb]ord oh, L[C]ord you've gotta [Dm]win. The [Bb]sun is down and the [C]night's riding [Dm]in. The t[Bb]rain is still on t[A7]ime, oh my s[Dm]oul is on the l[Gm]ine, oh L[Bb]ord, y[C]ou've got to [Dm]win.
