Close to the Tracks  Greg Trooper

By Greg Trooper
rmofle at
She lives [G]close to the tracks so she [D]never sleeps a wink
The [D]trains run all night, give her [G]plenty time to think
About the [G]love that she had to a [D]man brave and true
And [D]how that love turned bad the way [G]love is bound to do
They'd have [C]candle light meals, they'd drink [G]wine from Bordeaux
They'd make [D]love every night, the [G]moon hung low
But he [C]stopped coming home, he stopped [G]paying the bills
She had to [D]move to this house by the [G]tracks down the hill
She'd call her mom and her dad but they wouldn't understand
They'd say what did you do to that hard working man
She'd call her brother down south but he'd never call her back
He's got his house down a hill next to his own railroad tracks
So what happens now, what should she do
She can't fall asleep and dream a love brand new
Up in the air she sees birds and planes
You know she'd go anywhere to get away from these trains
She lives close to the tracks
