Verse 1:

                       Am C G Am
In the shuffling madness
                       Am C G Am
Of the locomotive breath
                       Am C G E
Runs the all time loser
                     E
Headlong to his death
G    Am                     Am C G Am
Oh he feels the pistons scraping
                        Am C G
Steam breaking on his brow


Chorus:

G   C                 D
Old Charlie stole the handle
       E
And the train it won't stop going
         G   Am
Noway to slow down
Am C G Am
Ohhhhhhhh!


Verse 2 (same as verse 1):
                              Am C G Am
He sees his children jumping off
                    Am C G Am
At stations one by one
                          Am C G E
His woman and his best friend
                    E
In bed and having fun!
 G   Am                        Am C G Am
Oh hes crawling down the corridor

On his hands and knees


Chorus:

G   C                 D
Old Charlie stole the handle
       E
And the train it won't stop going
         G   Am
Noway to slow down
Am C G Am
A-hey Heey!

*Flute Solo
(Play the verse chords)


Verse 3:
                        Am C G Am
He hears the silence howling
                          Am C G Am
Catches angels as they fall
                         Am C G E
And all the time the winner
                       E
Has got him by the balls!
G   Am                    Am C G Am
Oh he picks up Gidon's Bible
             Am C G
Open at page one

Chorus
 G     C                 D
I thank God he stole the handle
        E
And the train it won't stop going
          G   Am
No way to slow down


Repeat "No way to slow down" with the Am C G Am progression
and fade out.


"The distinguishing mark of man is the hand,
the instrument with which he does all his mischief..."
