Boxcars  Joe Ely

Well I gave all my money to the banker this month
[Am]Now I got no more money to s[Em]pend
[Em]She smiled when she saw me comin' through that door
When I [C]left she said come back aga[B7]in
[Em]I watched them lonesome boxcar wheels
[Am]Turnin' down the tracks out of t[Em]own
[Em]And it's on that lonesome railroad track
I'm gonna [C]lay my [B7]burden [Em]down[A7] [Em] [A7]
[Em]I was raised on a farm the first years of my life
[Am]Life was pretty good they [Em]say
[Em]I'll probably live to be some ripe ol' age
If [C]death'll stay out of my [B7]way
[Em]This world can take my money and time
[Am]But it sure can't take my [Em]soul
[Em]I'm goin' down to the railroad tracks
Watch them [C]lonesome [B7]boxcars [Em]roll[A7] [Em] [A7]
[Em]There's some big ol' Buicks at the Baptist church
[Am]Cadilacs at the Church of C[Em]hrist
[Em]I parked my camel by an ol' haystack
I'll be [C]lookin for that needle all [B7]night
[Em]There ain't gonna be no radial tires
[Am]Turnin' down the streets of g[Em]old
[Em]I'm goin down to the railroad tracks
And watch them [C]lonesome [B7]boxcars [Em]roll[A7] [Em] [A7]
[Em]Now if you ever heard the whistle on a fast freight train
[Am]Beatin' out a beautiful [Em]tune
[Em]If you ever seen the cold blue railroad tracks
Shinin' by the [C]light of the [B7]moon
If you e[Em]ver felt the locomotive shake the ground
[Am]I know you don't have to be [Em]told
[Em]Why I'm goin down to the railroad tracks
And watch them [C]lonesome [B7]boxcars [Em]roll[A7] [Em] [A7]
Yeah, I'm [Em]goin down to the railroad tracks
Watch them [C]lonesome [B7]boxcars [Em]roll
