Verse 2:
  G
I wish I was the brakeman
     F
On a hurtlin' fevered train
Am
Crashing a-headlong into the heartland
       C
Like a cannon in the rain
         G
With the beating of the sleepers
        F
And the burnin' of the coal
Am
Counting the towns flashing by
     C
In a night that's full of soul


Chorus:

Fiddle Solo: x2


Verse 3:
       G
Well I know I will be loosened
     F
From bonds that hold me fast
         Am
That the chains all hung around me
     C
Will fall away at last
    G
And on that fine and fateful day
       F
I will take thee in my arms
Am
I will ride on the train
       C
I will be the fisherman
