1.
E
My Daddy was a rounder 

Had to make himself some change 
E7
Climbed down off the mountain 

Shaved his head and caught a train 
       A      G#m     F#m
But I keep my skillet greasy 
E        A   G#m         E
Keep my lamp trimmed 'n' low 
    A    G#m          F#m      E
My weary feet, these floors I walk 
    A               B
But why I'll never know 
       E
And I hear echoes of his heart 
         B                 E
Beating back from distant lands 

And I hear the lonesome whistle 
          B                 E
Of that train that stole my man 

2.
E
And I cuddle to my child 

Teach him to bear the shame 

To take the blows 

That choose the frows and 

Earn an honest name 
     A       G#m    F#m       E
But money's running low, you know? 
    A         G#m      E
No friends to help me through 
      A        G#m  F#m     E
Just one last thing I can sell 
     A                B
And that will have to do 
       E
But I feel hunger in my sunken cheeks 
        B             E
In the tremble of my hand 

And I feel the rumblin' of the wheels 
         B                   E
Of that train that stole my man 

Bridge: E
        G#m F#m E 3x
        B E

3.
E
My mind just takes to ramblin' 

As the day goes walkin' west 

And Magnus comes a-crawlin' 

Through that hole inside my breast 
     A      G#m       F#m    E
And sorrow sings the simple song 
      A          G#m          E
That screams the whole night through 
   A  G#m   F#m     E
A melody of him and me 
      A             B
That never rang so true 
       E
And I see dark clouds on the rise 
           B              E
And I see midgets in the sand 

They paint my sight with visions 
          B                  E
Of that train that stole my man 

Bridge: E
        G#m F#m E 3x
        B E

4.
E
And I dreamt I found his crossroads 
        B                  E
In the land of sticks and stones 

Where the peggy worries of the heart 
    B            E
Are worries so unknown 
    A      G#m    F#m        E
He took me in his arms, you know 
     A      G#m     E
And tied me to his side 
 A           G#m       F#m      E
Caught that first wind off the hills 
      A             B
And further we did ride 
        E
Well I felt his touch upon my breast 
      B           E
That unforgiving hand 

But when I woke, could smell the smoke 
         B                   E
Of that train that stole my man 

Bridge: E
        G#m F#m E 3x
        B E

5.
E
Now the wind runs through my skin 
         B                    E
And the rain runs through my eyes 

Can't find no ground to hold my feet 
      B                E
Lord knows how hard I tries! 
     A        G#m        F#m      E
For come the dawn, I'll clean my teeth 
     A    G#m     E
And powder up my chest 
     A         G#m   F#m    E
Take off this faded apron, babe 
         A            B
And put on my Sunday best 
    E
To bind the strings to fix my heart 
     B                  E
I'm gonna look to holy lands 

And lay my back down on the track 
         B                   E
Of that train that stole my man
