about

The Trains roll through Norman, Ok all day.. and I don't mind a bit!

lyrics

Capo at 2 “Drop D” 3/4 Country Waltz Feel

D A
My Friend the Train she glides upon steel
A7 D
Prays for the straight line, but turns when she must
D G G/F# G/E
She's never too fast, but always too slow
G/D A D
I hear her calling, my friend the train

When I ride inside, it’s always the same
Whether I'm poor, or rich as a king
I close my eyes, she rocks me to sleep
She doesn't judge me, my friend the train.

G D
Some people don't know, how luck turned their way
E A A/G A/F#
Your born to old money, or born as a slave
A/E D G G/F# G/E
The shackles you wear, are not quite the same
G/D A D
But she will still transport you, my friend the train.

I know you are weary and know you are weak
but keep yourself steady keep moving your feet
there don't you hear her, a crossing the plains
she's coming for us, my friend the train.
A G D
And every ones welcome, on my friend the train.
