""; ?> New Train by From the John Prine album "Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings" ( Oh Boy Records, 1995) - guitar chords, guitar tabs and lyrics - chordie
Intro:
 DAEA

 AD
 Full blown silence in an empty room
 A
A former bride and a former groom
 E
A folding table and a folding chair
 A
A folded hand of poker there
 D
All new directions must go everywhere
 A
Big round people in a cool little square
 E
You can't cut it with a boat or a plane
 DA
Man, it's gonna take a new train

Chorus:
 AD
 ('Cause) You'll be leaving on a new train
 A
Far away from this world of pain
 E
And when you look out your window you'll see
 A
Your home, your baby, and your family
 D
No melted ice cubes in a paper cup
 A
Hell, you'll be happy, you'll be all shook up
 E
The friends that greet you will be simple and plain
 DA
When you step down from that new train

Instrumental:
 DAEA
 DAEA

 AD
 Collected volumes of history say
 A
Man makes mistakes most every day
 E
The half a pound of chopped ground round
 A
Is still a burger when it goes downtown
 D
No faded photographs of yesterdays
 A
Are in the books that I read these days
 E
To fly away from that memory town
 A
You must keep both your feet on the ground

Repeat Chorus:

Instrumental:
 DAEA

 AD
 I'll be leaving on a new train
 A
Far away from this world of pain
 E
The friends that greet me will be simple and plain
 DA
When I step down from that new train
 DA
New train
 DA
New train

A D E
