The Day We Caught the Train  Ocean Colour Scene

[Em]I never saw it as the sta[D]rt its more a [G]change of heart
[F]Rapping on the windows, whistling down the chimney po[E]t
[G]Blowing off the dust in the room
Where I forgot [D]I laid m[C]y plans in [B]solid rock
[Em]Stepping through the door
Like a troubadour whiling just an hour aw[A]ay,
[Em]Looking at the trees on the roadside felling its a hol[A]iday
[D]You and I [AAnd Bm]wind up in our favourite [A/CG]Roll a number [G]write another song
A *
Like jimmy heard the day he caught the train.
[Em]He sliped another rum and co[D]ke and told a dirty jok[G]e
[F]Walking like groucho sucking on a number [E]10
[G]Rolling on the floor with the cigarette burns walked i[D]n
I'll [C]miss the crush and I'm [B]home again
[Em]Stepping through the door
With the night in store whiling just an [A]hour away,
[Em]Step into the sky in the starbright feeling its a [A]brighter day.
[A]You and I should ride the tracks
And find ourselves just wading through tomorro[D]w
[A]And you and I when we're coming down
We're only getting back
And you know I feel no sorr[D]ow.[A] [G] [Em]
[D]Oh Oh[A] la la
[G]Oh Oh[Em] la la
[D]When you find that [A]things are getting wild
[G]Don't you need days like [Em]these............
