1.I'll swing            the hammer
2.  Empire              builder           brings me home.


Verse

G              Am              D7                         G
All day every day, I swing the hammer to the metal on the northern  railway.
(fill 1)

Em                        Am
Always a movie playing in my head.

D7                            G     (fill 12)
A million movie stars and you me

G         Am
Moonshine every night
       D7                            G                (fill 1)
Eating supper by the fire out in the clear moonlight
Em              Am
Ankles crossed, hands behind my head
        D7                                  G
Telling stories, singing songs about the west

I think the intro is like this:

This is the right way to do the intro, you were almost there.
You strum G a couple times first, don't just hit the bass note.
And the little riff was a bit off.
