Cheryl's Going Home by John Otway and Wild Willy Barrett

D  G  A

D                               D    G    A
The thunder cracks against the night,
D                               D    G    A
The dark explodes with a yellow light,
D                             D 
The railroad sign is flashing bright,
D           C         G       D     G   A
The people stare but I don't care,
G           C               D                         G
My flesh is cold against my bones, and Cheryl's going home

D                               D    G    A
Can you hear me shouting in the rain?
D                               D    G    A
Is there a way to stop the train?
D                               D       D        C     G      D   G  A
I've got some reasons to explain,      about the way I was today
G           C              D                        G
The whistle moans and I'm alone, and Cheryl's going home

D                              D    G    A
Send a roving special down the line,
D                         D    G    A
I'm running desperately behind,
D                            D 
There's only one thing on my mind,
D               C               D    G    A
As the rain and tears are in my eyes,
    G                C               D                       G
The things I have to say will not be known, and Cheryl's going home

            G            C       G                C
She's going home tonight ok, I'm running down the train tracks,
G                        C             G                  C
Lost because she's gone away, oh yeah, Cheryl baby I love you
    G                          C                  G       C
And all the things you've ever done for me that's true.
       G                     C                G            C
Then I see that look in your eyes, my God I'm sad now, paralysed
G             C        G                   C
You're going away, I'd hope you were gonna say
       G                 C                G                  C
I'm so sad you're going away, 'cause that train, that bloody train
         G                                          C
Is going chuff, chuff, chuff, chuff, chuff down the track,
           G                                          C
It's going chuff, chuff, chuff, chuff, chuff down the track,
    G               C      G              C     G               C
And Cheryl is going home, Cheryl is going home, Cheryl is going home tonight

D                               D G A D                              D  G  A
The thunder cracks against the night,  the dark explodes with a yellow light
D                             D       D          C         G       D  G  A
The railroad sign is flashing bright, the people stare but I don't care
G           C               D                                 G
My flesh is cold against my bones, and darling Cheryl's going home
