A Train Not Running  Chris Knight

A Train Not Running
By Chris Knight
Written By Chris Knight/Stacy Dean Campbell
CD ?? The Jealous Kind
[G]The sound of a train not running
Has been [Em]keeping me a[G]wake
The [G]Westmoreland mine ain't run much coal
Since[Em] back in '8[Cadd9]8
[G]Got on at the sawmill
But I've got to [Em]find a better w[G]ay
Or the [D]sound of a train not running
Is gonna [Cadd9]carry me aw[G]ay
And every time you [Em]look at me, Mary
[C]I want to tell you [G]someday
We'll leave the [D]sound of a train not running
[Cadd9]A thousand miles a[G]way
I [G]don't want to risk my freedom
Growing [Em]crops on company [G]land
But it'd [G]be a damned sight better
Than a government [Em]check in my [Cadd9]hand
I used to bring home good money
You used to drive a decent car
But now we go to town on Saturday
It seems a little too far
Now [G]some nights when our baby cries
I [Em]feel a twinge of [G]fear
When the [D]sound of a train not running
[Cadd9]Is the only thing I [G]hear
