Robert Earl Keen song covered by Wade Bowen on "Undone: A Musicfest Tribute To Robert Earl Keen"


VERSE 1

   G                                     D
The lonesome oak tree held its fire into November
   Am                     
He watched the last brown leaf
   C                      D
Hit the ground and blow a way
    G                                          D
An evening gunshot lets him know the hunt is over
 Am                      
A familiar cold moves in
                  C           D
Some where between snow and rain
       G                               D 
Just last spring you know his heart was burning
 Am                                       C          D
Before his Lynnville love hit the road to chase her dream
  G                                            D
Now he thinks of her each night and in the morning
 Am                                   C           D
He laces his coffee cup with whiskey instead of cream


CHORUS

 C
Her story is she's changed her mind
      G   
She just can't help herself
           Am                          
She wrote please don't meet me at the Lynnville train
          C                        D
Cause I'm coming in with someone else
 C
He's a quiet man, the neighbors say
         G       G/F       Em
But his pain won't go a way
    C                           G
So for better or worse he's going down
  D                     G
To meet the Lynnville train


VERSE 2

  G                                    D
He blew a tire on the road down to the station
  Am
He jacked it up and thought out loud, 
     C                        D
"She never should have let me down."
  G                                   D
Just six months ago she vowed she was leaving
          Am
Now she's coming home with a stranger
    C                       D
To settle down in Lynnville town


CHORUS

 C
Her story is she's changed her mind
      G   
She just can't help herself
           Am                          
She wrote please don't meet me at the Lynnville train
          C                        D
Cause I'm coming in with someone else
 C
He's a quiet man, the neighbors say
         G       G/F       Em
But his pain won't go a way
    C                           G
So for better or worse he's going down
  D                     G
To meet the Lynnville train


VERSE 3

  G                              
Steel wheels scream, the whistle blows,
              D
His heart is breaking
   Am                           
She steps onto the platform,
         C                D
with her new love by her side
  G                                      D
He reaches in his coat, his hand is shaking
    Am                                C              D
The time has finally come. yeah, this really is goodbye


ENDING CHORUS

 C
His story is he's changed his mind, 
    G
He just can't help himself
         Am                    
So he's getting on board the Lynnville train
      C                      D
And moving on to someplace else
 C             
As the train pulls out he watches them both
 G              G/F       Em
Standing in the pouring rain
 C                           Am
He's headed for a new life down the line
D                G
On the Lynnville Train
 C                         G
Yeah, for better or worse, he's leaving town
D                G
On the Lynnville Train
