and she won't be comin' back
Without love

Without love

Well the [Gm7]Illinois Central
[F#m7]and the [Gm7]Southern Central Freight
[F#m7]gotta [Gm7]keep on pushin' mama
[F#m7]'cause you [Gm7]know they're running late
Without love
where would you be now
Without love

Solo over verse 1 chords

Well the Illinois Central
and the Southern Central Freight
gotta keep on pushin' mama
'cause you know they're running late
Without love
where would you be now
Without love

Verse 2 (hold final D7 chord)
Where the pistons keep on charmin'
and the wheels go round' and round'
And the steel rails are cold and hard
for the miles they go around
Without love
where would you be right now
Without love
where would you be now?

Vocals ad lib over intro chords

Got to get it baby wont you move it down?
Won't you move it down?
Baby baby baby baby wont you move it down?
When the big train run

and the train is movin' on
I got to keep on movin'
Keep on movin'
Keep on movin'
Gonna keep on movin'

Use barre chords

Here's the chords for the much requested Long Train Running. You're on your
own for the rhythm. Also, I have no clue as to what the lyrics are. Have fun

Doobie Brothers - Long Train Running

+ - G11 (no 3rd)
v Gm7
| -10-------10-10--|--10--10---10---- |
| -10-h-11--11-11--|--11--11---10---- |
| -10-h-12--12-12--|--12--12---10---- |
| -10-------10-10--|--10--10---10---- |
| -x--------x--x---|--x---x----x----- |

Lots of strumming here, I'm just showing the fingerings
Cm7 Cm7 Cm6/7 (or Cm7 add 13)
|-8----------------|-8-------8--------| then repeat intro 2x

Again, lots of strumming
D#7 Gm7 D7
|--12--------------|--10------11------| then back to intro.

There is one other part that uses the intro chords with a different
rhythm, something like this:

| 1 . . . 2 . . . 3 . . . 4 . . . |
|: Gm7 Gm7 Gm7 Gm7 Gm7 G11 :|
| q q q s e e |

q - quarter note
s - sixteenth
e - eighth
