 G#C#BD#
 Every morning bout half past eight,
My Mummer wakes me says,"Don't be late",
Get to the office, tryin' to concentrate,
 C#
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill.
 G#C#BD#
 So I stop one day to figure it out,
I'll quit my job without a shadow of a doubt,
To sing the blues that I know all about,
 C#
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill.

 C#*           F#*
Minute after minute,
C* F/C
Second after second,
 A#D#G#
 Hour after hour goes by,
C#* F#*
Working for a rich man,
C* F/C
Staying just a poor man,
 A#D#G#
 Never stop to wonder why.
 -
 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!
