Then back to the Am C G Am progression Verse 1: Am C G Am In the shuffling madness Am C G Am Of the locomotive breath Am C G E Runs the all time loser E Headlong to his death G Am Am C G Am Oh he feels the pistons scraping Am C G Steam breaking on his brow Chorus: G C D Old Charlie stole the handle E And the train it won't stop going G Am Noway to slow down Am C G Am Ohhhhhhhh! Verse 2 (same as verse 1): Am C G Am He sees his children jumping off Am C G Am At stations one by one Am C G E His woman and his best friend E In bed and having fun! G Am Am C G Am Oh hes crawling down the corridor On his hands and knees Chorus: G C D Old Charlie stole the handle E And the train it won't stop going G Am Noway to slow down Am C G Am A-hey Heey! *Flute Solo (Play the verse chords) Verse 3: Am C G Am He hears the silence howling Am C G Am Catches angels as they fall Am C G E And all the time the winner E Has got him by the balls! G Am Am C G Am Oh he picks up Gidon's Bible Am C G Open at page one Chorus G C D I thank God he stole the handle E And the train it won't stop going G Am No way to slow down Repeat "No way to slow down" with the Am C G Am progression and fade out. "The distinguishing mark of man is the hand, the instrument with which he does all his mischief..." --MiScHiEf BrEw--
