C                G
I hope this old train breaks down
Am                  Fm
Then I could take a walk around
C                    G
And, see what there is to see
Am                  Fm
And time is just a melody
C                    
All the people in the street
G
Walk as fast as their feet can take them
Am                    Fm
I just roam through town
C                            
And though my windows got a view
G                  
The frame im looking through
Am                              Fm
Seems to have no concern for me now

So for now
C   G
I, need this here
Am           Fm
Old train to breakdown
C    G
Oh, please just
Am             Fm
Let me please breakdown


C            G
This engine screams out loud
Am              Fm
Sayin the beat gunna crawl westbound
C               G
So I dont even make a sound
Am                               Fm
Cause its gunna sting me when I leave this town
C
All the people in the street
G
That i'll never get to meet
   Am               Fm
If these dont bend somehow
C
And I got no time
G
That I got to get to
Am                   Fm
Where I dont need to be

So I

C  G
I, need this here
Am           Fm
Old train to breakdown
C    G
Oh, please just
Am             Fm
Let me please breakdown
C   G
I, need this here
Am             Fm
Old train to breakdown
C    G
Oh, please just
Am              Fm
Let me please breakdown
C                 G
I wanna break on down
Am              Fm
But I cant stop now

C
But you cant stop nothing
G
If you got no control
Am
Of the thoughts in your mind
Fm
That you kept in, you know
C
You dont know nothing
G
But you dont need to know
Am
The wisdoms in the trees
Fm
Not the glass windows
C
You cant stop wishing
G
If you dont let go
Am
But things that you find
Fm
And you lose, and you know
C
You keep on rolling
G
Put the moment on hold
Am
The frames too bright
Fm
So put the blinds down low

C   G
I, need this here
Am           Fm
Old train to breakdown
C    G
Oh, please just
Am             Fm
Let me please breakdown
C   G
I, need this here
Am             Fm
Old train to breakdown
C    G
Oh, please just
Am              Fm
Let me please breakdown
C                 G
I wanna break on down
Am              Fm
But I cant stop now
