RUNAWAY TRAIN (Rosanne Cash)

[Actually in Bb; capo 3.] 
[Eacb cbord is balf of a measure.] 
[In the second and later verses, the D is actually more of a Dsus4. In the
first verse, it's hard to tell.]
[G] [inC/G]tro] [G] [D/G] [G] [C/G] [G] I'm [D/G]worried
ab[G]out you, [C/G] [G] I'm [D/G]worried ab[G]out me[C/G]; [G] The [D/G]curves around
[G] mid[D/F#]night [Em] aren't [Em]easy to s[D]ee; [C] [D] [D]Flashing
r[G]ed war[C/G]nings [G] un[D/F#]seen in the r[Em]ain; [Em] [D] This [D]thing has turned
[G] in[G]to [C] a [D]runaway [G]train.[C/G] [G] [D/G] [G] [C/G] [G] [D/G](Long-distance...)
Long-distance phone calls, a voice on the line
Electrical miles that soften the time
The dynamite, too, is hooked on the wire
And so are the rails of American Flyers
Blind boys and gamblers, they invented the blues
Will pay up in blood when this marker comes due
To try to get off now, it's about as insane
As those who wave lanterns at runaway trains
[F] Steel [F]rails and [C]hard l[C]ives[Am] are [D]always in [G]twos[G]
I have [F]been h[F]ere be[C]fore th[B+]is, [C] and [C]now it's w[D]ith you[D] [Dsus] [D]
[G] [inC/G]strum[G]ent[D/G]al] [G] [C/G] [G] [D/G]
I'm worried about you, I'm worried about me
We're lighting the fuses and counting to three
And what are the choices for those who remain
The sign of the cross on a runaway train
This thing has turned into a runaway train
This thing has turned into a runaway train
Our love has turned into a runaway train
[G] [FaC/G]de on[G] in[D/G]strumental]
