Jim Croce – Railroad Song chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse]
D G DWhen I was a boy in the days of the train
Bm AI'd sit by the tracks on a long summer day
GAnd I'd wave at the brakesman
DAnd he'd wave back at me
BmWhile the thunderclouds rolled
A DOut of East Tennessee
[Verse]
D G DBut the dreams of a boy disappear when you're grown
Bm AAnd though I may dream, the railroads are gone
GThe ties they are rotten
DAnd the tracks shot to hell
Bm A DAlong with my dreams and the old railroad bell
[Chrous]
D G A DIn my dreams I ride the rails to California
G A DWorkin' diners and farms along the way
G A DOr I'd hop a ride to hide across the border
G A DWith a black eyed girl beside me all the way
D GNow the mountains are silent
DAnd the railroads are gone
Bm AAnd the coal towns no longer hear the miners at dawn
G DBut the train whistle shrills out her memories to me
Bm A DWhile the thunderclouds roll out of East Tennessee
[Chrous]
D G A DIn my dreams I ride the rails to California
G A DWorkin' diners and farms along the way
G A DOr I'd hop a ride to hide across the border
G A DWith a black eyed girl beside me all the way
D GNow the mountains are silent
DAnd the railroads are gone
Bm AAnd the coal towns no longer hear the miners at dawn
G DBut the train whistle shrills out her memories to me
Bm A DWhile the thunderclouds roll out of East Tennessee
