Tuning: Standard

The Idle Race, the band Jeff Lynne was in before he joined the Move 
(and therefore - before ELO). I am surprised that they are not already
in the Ultimate Guitar database, so thought I'd post one. 
(Here's a link to their biog - they have long since split.

The F D chord sequence at the end of the verses is the same as the intro riff. 

The F might be better as an Fmaj7, the F sounds right to me. Also, I am not 
sure that the guitar fill after the first chorus is right, it's very 
fast and I'm not particularly good at picking those bits up. I play
rhythm more than lead, so...

Corrections and comments welcome.

Yes she's leaving on the train,

Never coming back again,

The lines go far ahead.

Got a job fixed in the city,

And I don't get a part.

                        Em
Left a note here on the floor
                            C
Where she used to knock the door
  D                D7     F  D (intro riff)
I found when I got home

G                        Em
  Said you're gonna be a singer
                  C 
Be a star, a real swinger,
  D              D7      F  D (intro riff)
I hope it's very nice.

Oh Ahhhhh ahh ahhh ahhhhh
