Can't Ignore the Train  10,000 Maniacs

INTRO: F#m Em F#m Em
[D]Steep is the w[Asus4/E]ater tower
[D]painted off b[Bm]lue to match the sk[F#m]y
can't ignore the tr[Em]ain
(same as 1st verse)
night walks in the vally silent
you could swear the earth just moved
can't ignore the train
dust to be k[D]icked up
in the crack faced idle sinister t[Em]own[D/F#] [D] [Em] [D/F#] [D]
Em D/f# D
screen door to the rail station
[Em]devil in h[D/F#]er shoe
[D]ran along side the wa[Asus4/E]sted tracks
[D]hem pins d[Bm]arted her cal[F#m]ves
can't ignore the trai[Em]n
one spoiled girl with the tidiest apology
some how wedged inside her throat
can't ignore the train
patience their v[D]irtue
but I never could abide by that
[Em]dungeon lif[D/F#]e with electr[D]ic light
Em D/f# D
a clean towel and a basin
[Em]mantle figu[D/F#]res mind[D] their place
[Em]laughs where t[D/F#]hey belong[D] [Asus4/E] [D] [Bm] [F#m] [Em] [Dsus2] [Dadd9]
[F#m]through ad[Em]venture w[F#m]e are not adv[Em]enturesome
(same as 1st verse)
rage to share with a wardrobe mirror
in a roon so beige and cold
can't ignore the train
window days saw the children pick their
street games on thirty afternoons
Molly the boy[D]s are
starting in the rhyme again
teasing m[Em]ore and mo[D/F#]re....
the s[D]econd daughter[Em]
[D/F#]how she fell[D]
Em D/f# D
young locked in Some Folk's Prison
Em D/f# D
made to dwell
[Em]til they're b[D/F#]raiding
[D]her grey hair
[Em]sitting in the w[D/F#]ishing chai[D]r
sitting in the wishing chair
sitting in the wishing chair
