Todd Snider – Play A Train Song chords

Play A Train Song – Todd Snider

Intro:  G D Em C

G DSmokin long black Cadillac, engine’s windin down
Em CParked it up on the sidewalk like he owned the whole damn town
G D G CI'd hear him talkin to some chick through a thick ghost of smoke
G DThrough a thicker haze of southern comfort and coke
G DHe'd say girl you’re hotter than the hinges hangin off the gates of hell
Em CDon’t be afraid to turn to me baby if a he don't treat you well
G D G CAnd by he he meant me so I laughed and I shook his hand
G DHe'd laugh a little bit louder as he would yell up at the band
G DPlay a train song, pour me one more round
Em CMake’em leave my boots on on the day they lay me down
G D G CI am a runaway locomotive out of my one track mind
D GAnd I’m lookin for any kind of trouble that I can find
G DI got this old black leather jacket, got this pack of Marlboro reds
Em CI got this stash here in my pocket, got these thoughts in my own head
G D G CI got to run until I’ve got walk or until I got to crawl
G D GAt this moment that I’m in right now and nothin else at all
G DAnd the television blizzard lights we looked around his place
Em CWe found him cold there on the sofa a little smile across his face
G D G CAnd though I tried with all my sadness somehow I could never weep
G DFor a man who looked to me like he died laughin in his sleep
G DSingin a train song, drinkin one last round
Em CWe made’em leave his boots on on the day they laid him down
G D G CHe was a runaway locomotive out of his one track mind
G CPlay a train song
G CPlay a train song
G D GPlay a train song
