BIG TRAIN (FROM MEMPHIS)
written and performed by John Fogerty
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 

(8 measures of E)
           B7      E        A      E
When I was young I spent my summer days
              B7
layin' on the tracks
    E            B7    E              A
The sound of the wheel rollin' on the steel
        E
Took me out, took me back

CHORUS:
    A          E
Big train from Memphis
    A          E
Big train from Memphis
         B7        E
Now it's gone gone gone
B7        E
Gone gone gone

Verse 2:
Like no one before, he let out a roar
And I just had to tag along
Each night I went to bed with a sound in my head
And the dream was a song

(chorus)

(instrumental, pattern of verse and chorus)

Verse 3:
Well I rode 'em in and back out again
You know what they say about trains
But I'm tellin' you, since that Memphis train came through
This whole world's not the same

(chorus)

(play E and fade)
