Trains Make Me Lonesome  George Strait

Title: Trains Make Me Lonesome
Artist: George Strait
Album: Holding My Own & Strait Out of the Box (MCA Nashville)
Transcribed by Adam Bell
Capo 2
[G]I was five years old when [C]daddy started [G]packing,
And I [C]stood there by my [G]momma as she [D]cried.
And the [C]next thing that we [G]knew,
An old [D]train came passing [D]through.
Then [Am]daddy got on [Em]board, and we [C]ain't seen him no [D]more.
I [G]wonder why [C]trains make me [D]lone[G]some,
[C]It happens every[G]time that engine [D]moans some.
And when I [C]hear that whistle [G]blow,
It [Am]makes my heart sink [Em]low,
And I [C]wonder why [D]trains make me [G]lonesome.
Can I get a HELL-YEAH from all the strait fans out there?
