The Last Spike  Cowboy Junkies

INTRO: G
VERSE:
[G]Mornings feel so damn [C]sad these days
[F]Without the [C]call of the [G]8:15.
[G]That old familiar echo has f[C]inally died away
[F]Leaving nothing but a [C]chill where there [G]once was a mighty scream.
CHORUS:
[C]And I've watched the flat cars [G]take away our timber.
[C]I've watched the coal cars steal our [G]rock.
And [Am]now that we've got no[Em]thing left to take we're told
That the [F]wheels will stop turning, the [C]whistles will stop blowing,
These [/C]foo[/B]lish [Em]dreams must s[G]top.
VERSE:
[G]Last year they closed down the [C]post office,
[F]Took the only [C]flag we had in [G]town.
[G]That old brick building still [C]stands like a cenotaph
[F]To a vision [C]lost and buried in a [G]very distant past.
CHORUS:
[C]And I've watched the flat cars [G]take away our timber.
[C]I've watched the coal cars steal our[G] rock.
And [Am]now that we've got no[Em]thing left to take we're told
That the [F]wheels will stop turning, [C]the whistles will stop blowing,
These [/C]foo[/B]lish [Em]dreams must s[G]top.
BRIDGE:
[Dm]The longest train I[Am]'ve ever seen was the [C]train that you were [G]on.
[Dm]I walked you to the [Am]station, we [C]kissed and you were [G]gone.
[F]I dream at night [Bb]about you coming [A]home.
[E]The train in the station, your [G]uniform on fire
As you [D]stepped onto the platform the [C]band plays a little louder,
[Bm]And as we em[Am]brace your cap falls [G]off.
[Am]Oh, I guess these [C]foolish dreams must [G]stop.
VERSE:
[G]Mornings feel so damn [C]sad these days
[F]Without the [C]call of the [G]8:15.
[G]Looks like this town is f[C]inally gonna die away
[F]Leaving nothing but broken promises where there [C]once was small town [G]dreams
CHORUS:
[C]And I've watched the flat cars [G]take away our timber.
[C]I've watched the coal cars steal our[G] rock.
[Am]And now that we've got [Em]nothing left to take we're told
That the [F]Tv stations will be closing main street [C]windows will need boardsing
That these [/C]foo[/B]lish [Am]dreams must [G]stop.
