Robert Earl Keen song covered by Wade Bowen on "Undone: A Musicfest Tribute To Robert Earl Keen"


VERSE 1

G DThe lonesome oak tree held its fire into November
Am He watched the last brown leaf
C DHit the ground and blow a way
G DAn evening gunshot lets him know the hunt is over
Am A familiar cold moves in
C DSome where between snow and rain
G D Just last spring you know his heart was burning
Am C DBefore his Lynnville love hit the road to chase her dream
G DNow he thinks of her each night and in the morning
Am C DHe laces his coffee cup with whiskey instead of cream
CHORUS
CHer story is she's changed her mind
G She just can't help herself
Am She wrote please don't meet me at the Lynnville train
C DCause I'm coming in with someone else
CHe's a quiet man, the neighbors say
G G/F EmBut his pain won't go a way
C GSo for better or worse he's going down
D GTo meet the Lynnville train
VERSE 2
G DHe blew a tire on the road down to the station
AmHe jacked it up and thought out loud,
C D"She never should have let me down."
G DJust six months ago she vowed she was leaving
AmNow she's coming home with a stranger
C DTo settle down in Lynnville town
CHORUS
CHer story is she's changed her mind
G She just can't help herself
Am She wrote please don't meet me at the Lynnville train
C DCause I'm coming in with someone else
CHe's a quiet man, the neighbors say
G G/F EmBut his pain won't go a way
C GSo for better or worse he's going down
D GTo meet the Lynnville train
VERSE 3
G Steel wheels scream, the whistle blows,
DHis heart is breaking
Am She steps onto the platform,
C Dwith her new love by her side
G DHe reaches in his coat, his hand is shaking
Am C DThe time has finally come. yeah, this really is goodbye
ENDING CHORUS
CHis story is he's changed his mind,
GHe just can't help himself
Am So he's getting on board the Lynnville train
C DAnd moving on to someplace else
C As the train pulls out he watches them both
G G/F EmStanding in the pouring rain
C AmHe's headed for a new life down the line
D GOn the Lynnville Train
C GYeah, for better or worse, he's leaving town
D GOn the Lynnville Train
