i think the song origanal was written by Katie Melua
[G#]Every m[C#]orning bout h[B]alf past [D#]eight,
My Mummer wakes me says,"Don't be late",
Get to the office, tryin' to concentrate,
My l[C#]ife is just a slow train crawling up a hill.
[G#]So I st[C#]op one day to f[B]igure it [D#]out,
I'll quit my job without a shadow of a doubt,
To sing the blues that I know all about,
My l[C#]ife is just a slow train crawling up a hill.
[-]C#*           F#*
Minute after minute,
C* F/C
Second after second,
[A#]Hour after h[D#]our goes [G#]by,
C#* F#*
Working for a rich man,
C* F/C
Staying just a poor man,
[A#]Never stop to w[D#]onder w[G#]hy.
[-]So here I am in London town,
A better scene I'm gonna be around,
The kind of music that won't bring me down,
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill.

Perhaps that was a joke, but Katie Melua wasn't even born when this song was written!
