D/g


Dsus2     D/f#     D/g
How long is this train son
   D/b        D/f#    D/g
I heard his fragile voice
  A                     D/f#                 D/g        
I didnít want to listen but there really was no choice
              D              D/f#  D/g           D/b     D/f#   D/g
It seems like it goes on forever and I waited for so long
       A                               D/f#                           D/g                 Dsus2 
The old manís breath came slow and smelled of whiskey in the dawn

        A                       Dsus2              D/b    D/f#     D/g
On a cold November morning in the gentle mist of rain
            Dsus2            A7sus4                   D/b      D/f#     D/g   A (single not to...)
Thereís just so many reasons that people wait to meet a train

D/b - D/f# - D/g

             Dsus2  D/f#    D/g                D/b          D/f#   D/g
And as I waited for my sister to come down the metal stairs
      A                      D/f#                    D/g        
He told me that his son had not been home in fifteen years
         Dsus2  D/f#         D/g           D/b    D/f#       D/g
And I barely seemed to notice the tears behind his face
             A                      D/f#                  D/g               Dsus2       
But his wishes were no strangers to the people in this place

Dsus2

       A                              Dsus2  D/a   D/b            D/f#         D/g
The old man stood there waiting for a young man dressed in blue
              C                    Bm7             Em         D/f#     A  Asus4
Then he handed him a neatly folded flag and said for you

                   Dsus2  D/f#    D/g            D/b     D/f#   D/g
He said your son he died a hero in the service of this flag
        A                      D/f#           D/g        
The old man took it gently put it in his paper bag
           Dsus2  D/f#   D/g              D/b       D/f#      D/g
Then I left him in the rain there but Iíd still hear his voice
   A                     D/f#        D/g                       Dsus2
I try hard not to listen but there really is no choice

        A                       Dsus2              D/b    D/f#     D/g
On a cold November morning in the gentle mist of rain
            Dsus2            A7sus4                   D/b      D/f#     D/g 
Thereís just so many reasons that people wait to meet a train

D/g


Dsus2     D/f#   D/g  
How long is this train son
        D/b        D/f#     D/g
I can hear the pouring rain
       A                  D/f#               D/g                       D
Iím still reminded of him when I hear a passing train


I think this is quite accurate 

Enjoy :)
