Acela  Fountains of Wayne

Wanted to find the chords for the song but I couldn't so I reluctantly transcribed it
out. So here it is for everyone else to enjoy.
Intro: C, F x4
[C]There's a train on a [F]track
Painted [C]silver, blue and [F]black
Heading [C]to Massa[F]chusetts
[C]And then it's coming [F]back
[G]And it's entertaining by New Haven
[F]Once you've had yourself a drink or [C]two, oo[F]h ooh[C] [F]
[G]All alone on the Acela
[F]Tell me baby, where the hell are [C]you?[F]
[C]Ooh ooh[F]
[C]There's a girl on the [F]train
Leaning [C]on a window [F]pane
Reading P[C]eople Magazin[F]e
Just to [C]help turn off her[F] brain
[G]And I swear I caught her staring at me
[F]Maybe I've been staring at her t[C]oo, ooh o[F]oh[C] [F]
[G]Shot to hell on the Acela
[F]Just as well, there's nothing else to do
[C]Ooh ooh[F]
[C] [F]  
When they [Am]called "All a[F]board"
You were [C]nowhere to be [G]found
Though you [Am]swore you were [F]sure
You'd come [C]with me out of [G]town
[Am]And I looked in all the stars
I looked in Hudson News
Searched for any sign of you
But you had not left any clues
I was so confused[C] [F] [C] [F]
What was I [C]supposed to [F]do?
Now the [C]world is a [F]blur
And the [C]engine starts to[F] purr
And we're f[C]lying through [F]Rhode Island
The con[C]ductor calls me "[F]Sir,
for your [G]information it's a station [F]at about 11:[C]22", ooh o[F]oh[C] [F]
[G]Got to get the next Acela
[F]Got to make my way back home[C] too[F]
[G]Got to get the next Acela
[F]Got to get myself back home [C]to you[F]
