E|--0-----------------3--x--x--3--------------------------------------------|



Repeat the whole main riff once more, which leads into the verse.




Verse::



      Em                       D

I can remember the night oh so well.


            D                      Bm        Asus2   Em      D/F#

The way the moon shone down on the Mississippi river swell.


      Em                        D
      
Not a soul out there could have known.


         D                   Bm    Asus2       Em       D/F#

Just how quick and fast that fog   would   come down






1st Break::



       A         

In the middle of a silent night

 
C                  D/F#

Heard that whistle blow





Chorus::


        Em    Em           D/F#   D/F#

Was the wrong place at the wrong  time


        Am          Cmaj7         C      D/F#  

Now the tracks are bent out of line

   
          Em              D/F#                            Am  Cmaj7  C  D/F#

I said down on the Riverbed is where you'll find those souls


        Em    Em          D/F#  D/F#

Was the first mate on the foredeck


Am      Cmaj7      C    D/F#

Ran my ship aground


        Em              D/F#                               Am  Cmaj7  C  

I said down on the Riverbed is where you'll find those souls


D/F#                      Transition to the Main Riff again, play it 4 times

Where you'll find those souls..





2nd Verse::



        Em                                     D

Now the train had just left the station in New Orleans



  D                              Bm    Asus2    Em       D/F#

'Bout the same time we hit the bridge at two fifteen



      Em                            D

I can still hear the twisting metal cry



 D                          Bm    Asus2    Em       D/F#  

As a broken track threw the train off the line





Repeat the 1st Break    x1

Repeat the Chorus       x1

Toss the riff in once before moving to the 2nd break

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----0--x-x--x-x-------------------------------------    -----------------|
G|-----0--x-x--x-x-------0h2p0------------------------- x1 -----------------|
D|-----2--x-x--x-x-------------2--2p0-----------------time------------------|
A|-----2--x-x--x-x-------------------------------------    -----------------|
E|--0---------------0h3-----------------------------------------------------|

                                            
                     (G)   (Asus2)
e|--------------------3--x--0-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----0--x-x--x-x----3--x--0-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----0--x-x--x-x----0--x--2-----------------------------------------------|
D|-----2--x-x--x-x----0--x--2-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----2--x-x--x-x----2--x--0-----------------------------------------------|
E|--0-----------------3--x--x--3--------------------------------------------|


2nd Break::



   G                  Em                    D/F#                           B7

I know I'll never find any kind of peace of mind, oh but you can rest assured



 C                         D/F#

I will always remember the sound of that whistle blow





Solo::

Note: Some chords in the solo are played as barre chords for style points
      
      -It still sounds alright if you just play them as normal

      -It's also a little more up tempo, and higher notes in the chords
       are more accentuated than the lower notes, give the song a listen
       to hear the change in style during the solo.



                              
                           Sweep pick this on an upstroke, followed by the Am
                            
                           It might take some practice to get the rolling
                           sound of the notes down
                                      |
                                      |
                                      V

e|----------------------------(3)-----0----------0--------------------------|
B|-----------------------------3--1----1---------1--------------------------|
G|--0-0---------------------------------2-p-0----2--------------------------|
D|--2-2--/--5----------------------------2-p-0---2--------------------------|
A|--2-2--------5h7p5--\--2-----------------------0--------------------------|
E|--0-0------------------3--------------------------------------------------|



Am   -   Cmaj7   -   C   -   D/F#



-Barre chords start here if you want to use them


Em   -   Em      -   D/F#  - D/F#



Am   -   Cmaj7   -   C   -   D/F#




e|----------------------------(3)-----0----------0--------------------------|
B|-----------------------------3--1----1---------1--------------------------|
G|--0-0---------------------------------2-p-0----2--------------------------|
D|--2-2--/--5----------------------------2-p-0---2--------------------------|
A|--2-2--------5h7p5--\--2-----------------------0--------------------------|
E|--0-0------------------3--------------------------------------------------|



Am   -   Cmaj7   -   C   -   D/F#


-Ditto for the barre chords

Em   -   Em      -   D/F#  - D/F#


Am   -   Cmaj7   -   C   -   D/F#   





Back to the Chorus   x1

Riff   X4




End with ::    G   -   Asus2   -   Em   -   Em





Last thing to note:

        - The transitions from    Am - Cmaj7 - C    have an Am7 chord in 
between to get the right sound just use one finger to move between those 
three chords so that you're always holding down the Am7  (x02010) as you go.






Wooooo first tab! May not be dead on but hopefully I didn't make a horrific mess of things :)

Also be sure to check out Davy Knowles, as he is a tremendously talented dude.
