I Won't Give Up My Train Merle Haggard
I Won?t Give Up My Train
[G]I pulled into Memphis, th[C]irteen minutes early
First [G]time in two weeks.
That?s where she came to meet me
As I [C]stepped down off 451, and [G]needed sleep.
And the [D]baby?s overdo I know, [C]she needs some thi..[G]ngs,
But the [C]more we discuss it, it?s the [D]same..
[G]Long train rollin?, got [C]a feelin? that I?m not knowin?
She?s not waitin? for [G]me.
These rails keep getting? longer
And this [C]feelin?s getting? stronger she won?t [G]let me be,
I [D]love my woman fire and rain,
But, I [C]won?t give up my [G]train
[G]The Baby came in April an[C]d I was in Chicago
In the pourin? [G]rain.
With twelve flat cars, an empty tanker, [C]three box cars
and an empty sack of [G]mail.
[C]Tho? I get lonely some[G]times I know
There?s just [C]no other way to ex[D]plain?
