Runaway Train

Tom Petty

 C
 Call you up in the middle of the night,
 Em
 like a fire flower flying by,
 Am
 you were there like a blow torch burnin',
 G
 I was a key that could use a little turnin'
. . . .
 C
 So tired that I couldn't even sleep,
 Em
 so many secrets I couldn't keep,
 Am
 promised myself I wouldn't weep,
 G
 one more promise ' I couldn't keep
. . . .
 FG
 It seems no one can help me now,
 CAm
I'm in too deep theres no way out,
 FEmG
 this time I have really let myself a-stray '
 C
 Runaway train never goin' back,
 Em
 wrong way on a one way track
 Am
 seems like I should be getting somewhere,
 G
 somehow I'm neither here nor there
 C
 Can you help me remember how to smile,
 Em
 make it somehow seem all worth while,
 Am
 how on earth did I get so jaded,
 G
 last mystery seemed so faded
. . . .
 C
 I can go where no one else can go,
 Em
 I know what no one else has known,
 Am
 here I am just a drowning in the brain,
 G
 with a ticket for a runaway train

 FG
 Everything seems cut and dry,
 CAm
 day and night earth and sky,
 FEmG
 somehow I just don't believe it

. . . . .chorus. . . . .

 C
 Want a ticket for a runaway train?,
 Em
 like a madman laughin' at the rain,
 Am
 a little out of touch little in the brain,
 G
 its just easier to deal with the pain

. . . . .chorus. . . .

 C
 Runaway train never comin' back,
 Em
 runaway train tearin' up the track,
 Am
 runaway train burnin' in my veins,
 G
 run away but it always seems the same

This is not a Tom Petty song. It's by Soul Asylum.
