Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Fear Of Trains  Magnetic Fields



It was the [G]army train that [F]took her daddy [C]from her
It was the [G]bible train that [F]took her momma [C]too
And that [Am]high loud whistle made her [Dm]horse [C]run [G]away
But the [G]straw the broke the [F]camel's back was [C]you
It was the [G]government train that [F]took away her [C]childhood
It was the [G]KKK that [F]took away her [C]past
It was the [Am]white man's will that [Dm]hers be [C]brok[G]en
But that [G]barefoot girl could [F]run too fast  [C]
CHORUS:
[C]Because the world's too cold  for a girl like [Am]that with a
[C]Blackfoot soul  and a cowboy [G]hat
Every[C]thing she loved went down the dragon [Am]track
She had a fear of [C]trains  [G] [F] [C]
BRIDGE:
[C]In the beet fields of Mont[G]ana
[Dm]She's always coming on dead [Am]rails
[C]to break the plow and whisper [G]"Honey,
[Dm]bound to live is bound to [Am]fail"
[C]And in a park in San Fran[G]cisco
[Dm]her momma shrieks about the [Am]Lord
[C]And down the dead rails there's an [G]echo
[Dm]The wind is whistling all-[Am]aboard
CHORUS
VERSE2: (same chords as before)
It was the wagon train that too away her country
It was the oil train that took away her land
She could have been the belle of the ponderosa
but that was not the fat man's plan
