            CAPO 2nd Fret

[Harmonica intro]
[C] When I was a little boy I used to lie in my bed and listen for the [G] '9:09'
It [F] never ran on Christmas or the [C] day that Jesus died 
but every other day it [G] ran on [C] time 
It [C] always made me lonesome but it brought me comfort 
and what it did to me I can't [G] explain 
And [F] as I wonder through this [C] harsh and gentle world 
Oh every now and then I [G] wish I was a [C] train 

[F] Roll on roll on into the dark [C] night 
[F] Leavin' all my troubles [G] behind 
[F] Carryin' my soul [C] far far away Oh every now and then 
I [G] wish I was a [C] train

[Harmonica Break]

[C] I loaded trucks in Isa rode the dingo fences 
cursed the ganger on the western [G] line 
[F] Started throwin' punches in a [C] bar at Charters Towers 
They threw the book at me [G] I did my [C] time 

[Repeat Chorus] 


[F] Cause a train don't weep a [C] train don't feel 
[F] heartache [C] sadness and [G] pain 
And [F] when I die just [C] let my spirit ride  
on the boxcar of an [G] ever rollin' [C] train 

[Repeat Chorus] 

Harmonica End
