              A chord diagramG+G
If there were seventeen cars out in my back yard,
    A chord diagramFF
The boys in blue were calling my name,
A chord diagramG+G
Semi-automatics up on the rooftop,
A chord diagramFF
They just wanted to talk to me,
    A chord diagramG+G
I'd tell them what they wanted to hear,
    A chord diagramFF
The only thing that I knew.
A chord diagramG+G
Forty-nine tons of diesel locomotive
A chord diagramFF
Couldn't drag me back to you.


     A chord diagramG+G
Everywhere you go, there's a train wreck, baby,
     A chord diagramFF
Everywhere you go, there's a runaway train,
A chord diagramG+G
Breaking my heart like a bottleneck, baby,
A chord diagramFF
Sliding up and down and pulling its strings.
     A chord diagramG+G
Everywhere you go, everybody knows,
A chord diagramFF
You're looking for someone to do.
A chord diagramG+G
Forty-nine tons of diesel locomotive
A chord diagramFF
Couldn't drag me back to you.


   A chord diagramG+G
If I was a brakeman, if I was a switchman,
   A chord diagramFF
If I was an engineer,
    A chord diagramG+G
I'd take that train on down the line
A chord diagramFF
And clear on out of here.
   A chord diagramG+G
If I was the man swinging the lantern,
    A chord diagramFF
I'd swing it 'til it was blue.
A chord diagramG+G
Forty-nine tons of diesel locomotive
A chord diagramFF
Couldn't drag me back to you.
