New Train  From the John Prine album "Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings" ( Oh Boy Records, 1995)

Intro:
[D]      [A]     [E]      [A] 

[A]Full blown silence in an e[D]mpty room
A former bride and a fo[A]rmer groom
A folding table and a fo[E]lding chair
A folded hand of p[A]oker there
All new directions must go e[D]verywhere
Big round people in a c[A]ool little square
You can't cut it with a b[E]oat or a plane
Man, it's gonna take a n[D]ew t[A]rain

Chorus:
[A]('Cause) You'll be leaving on a n[D]ew train
Far away from this w[A]orld of pain
And when you look out your wi[E]ndow you'll see
Your home, your baby, and your fa[A]mily
No melted ice cubes in a pa[D]per cup
Hell, you'll be happy, you'll be a[A]ll shook up
The friends that greet you will be s[E]imple and plain
When you step down from that n[D]ew tr[A]ain

Instrumental:
[D]      [A]       [E]       [A] 
[D]      [A]       [E]       [A] 

[A]Collected volumes of hi[D]story say
Man makes mistakes most ev[A]ery day
The half a pound of ch[E]opped ground round
Is still a burger when it g[A]oes downtown
No faded photographs of yes[D]terdays
Are in the books that I r[A]ead these days
To fly away from that me[E]mory town
You must keep both your f[A]eet on the ground

Repeat Chorus:

Instrumental:
[D]      [A]       [E]       [A] 

[A]I'll be leaving on a n[D]ew train
Far away from this wo[A]rld of pain
The friends that greet me will be si[E]mple and plain
When I step down from that n[D]ew t[A]rain
N[D]ew tr[A]ain
N[D]ew tr[A]ain
