Starlight On the Rails
I c[D]an hear the whistle [A7]blowing
High and lonesome as ca[D]n be
Outsi[G]de the rain is softly [D]falling
Ton[A7]ight its falling just for[D] me
Looking ba[A7]ck along the road I've tra[D]veled
The mi[A7]les can tell a million [D]tales
Each year is l[G]ike some rolling fr[D]eight train
And [A7]cold as starlight on the r[D]ails
I think about a wife and family
My home and all the things it means
The black smoke trailing out behind me
Is like a string of broken dreams
A man who lives out on the highway
Is like a clock that can't tell time
A man who spends his life just rambling
Is like a song without a rhyme
