Play a Train Song  Todd Snider

Play A Train Song ? Todd Snider
Intro: G D Em C
[G]Smokin long black Cadillac, [D]engine?s windin down
[Em]Parked it up on the sidewalk li[C]ke he owned the whole damn town
I'd hear him [G]talkin to some [D]chick through a [G]thick ghost of [C]smoke
Through a [G]thicker haze of southern c[D]omfort and coke
He'd say girl you?re[G] hotter than the hinges ha[D]ngin off the gates of hell
[Em]Don?t be afraid to turn to me baby i[C]f a he don't treat you well
And by [G]he he meant [D]me s[G]o I laughed and I shook his h[C]and
[G]He'd laugh a little bit louder as he would [D]yell up at the band
[G]Play a train song, [D]pour me one more round
[Em]Make?em leave my boots on on the [C]day they lay me down
I am a [G]runaway l[D]ocomotive [G]out of my one track [C]mind
[G] [D] [G] 
[D]An[G]d I?m lookin for any kind of trouble that I can find
[G]I got this old black leather jacket, got this [D]pack of Marlboro reds
I got this s[Em]tash here in my pocket, got these th[C]oughts in my own head
I got to [G]run until I[D]?ve got walk or [G]until I got to [C]crawl
At this [G]moment that I?m in right now and [D]nothin else at [G]all
[G]And the television blizzard lights we [D]looked around his place
We found him [Em]cold there on the sofa a little [C]smile across his face
And though I [G]tried with all my [D]sadness [G]somehow I could never [C]weep
For a [G]man who looked to me like he died [D]laughin in his sleep
Singin a [G]train song, [D]drinkin one last round
[Em]We made?em leave his boots on on the [C]day they laid him down
He was a [G]runaway [D]locomotive [G]out of his one track [C]mind
[G]Play a train [C]song
[G]Play a train [C]song
[G]Play a train[D] s[G]ong
