                      Railway Hotel    (Justin Hayward)
[3/4 time]

         D           A7          D
     We went to the room and we bolted the door

          E                         A7
     The bass from the jukebox was coming through the floor

          D               A7              D             G            D  /  /
     And out through the walls we could still hear the roar of the trains

     C  /  /  D  /  G  D  /  /

           D           A7         D
     Was this all the comfort we got for our sins

         E                       A7
     No candles, no waiters, no soft violins

          D      A7         D             G          D  /  /  C  /  /
     The dirty electric convector plugged into the mains

    D                   A                             D
     I had wanted much more for the first night with you

                        G                        D  /  /  A7  /  /  D  /  /
     But the Railway Hotel was the best I could do

                   A                         D
     I knew the Savoy would have suited you well

                           G                    D  /  /  A7  /  /  D  /  /
     But the best I could do was the Railway Hotel

     G  /  /  D  /  /  C  /  /  D  /  G  D  /  /

       D          A7            D
     Away in the sky were the lights of a jet

      E                           A7
     Burning in the night like a slow cigarette

        D             A7           D         G            D  /  /
     A lamp in the street threw a soft silhouette on the wall

     C  /  /  D  /  G  D  /  /

           D             A7           D
     And though it was crumbling and run down and dead

         E                     A7
     A chair and a sink and an old single bed

          D         A7           D             G        D  /  /  C  /  /
     The love we began and the things that we said I recall

    D                   A                             D
     I had wanted much more for the first night with you

                        G                        D  /  /  A7  /  /  D  /  /
     But the Railway Hotel was the best I could do

                   A                         D
     I knew the Savoy would have suited you well

                           G                    D  /  /  G  /  /  D
     But the best I could do was the Railway Hotel
