Troy Cassar Daley – I Wish I Was A Train chords

I wish I was a train by Troy Cassar-Daley

[C] When I was a little boy I used to lie in my [F] bed  [C]  
and [F] listen for the nine- [C]  0-nine [G]  
It [F] never ran on Christmas or the day that [C]  Jesus died
but every other day [G] it ran on time [C]
It always made me lonesome but it [F] brought me comfort [C]
and [F] what it did to me [C] I can't explain [G]  
And [F] as I wander through this harsh and [C] gentle world
Oh every now and then I wish I [G] was a train [C]
[F] Roll on roll on into the [C] dark night
[F] Leavin' all my troubles behind [G]
[F] Carryin' my soul far, [C] far away [Am7]
[C] Oh every now and then, I [G] wish I was a train [C]
I loaded trucks in Isa rode the dingo [F] fences [C]
cursed the [F] ganger on the [C] western line [G]
[F] Started throwin' punches in a bar at [C] Charters Towers 
They threw the book at me [G] I did my time [C]


Cause a [F] train don't weep a [C] train don't feel
[F] heartache [C] sadness and pain [G] 
And [F] when I die just let [C] my spirit ride [Am7]
on the [C] boxcar of an ever [G] rollin' train [C] 
[Repeat Chorus]
