Chords and lyrics

difficulty: beginner



Wanted to find the chords for the song but I couldn't so I reluctantly transcribed it

out. So here it is for everyone else to enjoy.

Intro: C, F x4

C                    F

There's a train on a track

        C                F

Painted silver, blue and black

        C       F

Heading to Massachusetts

C                    F

And then it's coming back

G

And it's entertaining by New Haven

F                                   C      F    C   F

Once you've had yourself a drink or two, ooh ooh

G

All alone on the Acela

F                                C   F

Tell me baby, where the hell are you?

C         F

Ooh ooh

C                     F

There's a girl on the train

        C           F

Leaning on a window pane

         C            F

Reading People Magazine

        C                F

Just to help turn off her brain

G

And I swear I caught her staring at me

F                               C        F   C    F

Maybe I've been staring at her too, ooh ooh

G

Shot to hell on the Acela

F

Just as well, there's nothing else to do

C          F

Ooh ooh

C        F

          Am           F

When they called "All aboard"

         C             G

You were nowhere to be found

           Am             F

Though you swore you were sure

           C              G

You'd come with me out of town

Am

And I looked in all the stars

I looked in Hudson News

Searched for any sign of you

But you had not left any clues

                 C      F      C      F

I was so confused

           C           F

What was I supposed to do?

        C          F

Now the world is a blur

        C               F

And the engine starts to purr

           C             F

And we're flying through Rhode Island

       C                F

The conductor calls me "Sir,

         G                          F           C         F     C    F

for your information it's a station at about 11:22", ooh ooh

G

Got to get the next Acela

F                           C         F

Got to make my way back home too

G

Got to get the next Acela

F                           C         F

Got to get myself back home to you
