D / / / 2 / / / 3 / / / 4 / / / 5 / / / 6 /
I went down to the station
Just to take a ride
I went down to the station
Just to take a ride
Found myself on a flatcar
Yesterday behind

Verse 2:
Pullin' out from the platform
There was no brass band
I pulled out from the platform
Nobody raise a hand
There were no tears or regrets
From the runaway train
Train, train, train, train

(instrumental, same pattern as verses)

Verse 3:
Got no sand in my pocket
You know I ain't tied down
With no sand in my pocket
Never do sit down
I'm just a cross-tie walker
Where the freight trains run
Run, run, run, run

(instrumental, same pattern as verses)

Verse 4:
If you see me a-comin'
Don't you waste my time
If you see me a-comin'
Don't you waste my time
'Cause there're more miles between us
Than the Santa Fe line
Run, run, run

(hum 2 lines of a verse, then play D continuously and fade)
