Verse 1:

       C (strum once and hold)     C
The Brakeman is letting off some steam,

This has to be the slowest train that I have ever seen
                                           F
and the Sandman's waiting to deliver me my dream,
                  Am7                           G
Guess I'll lay my head against my elbow and the window
          F                    G                      C
Watch the wheels go, Watch the wheels go,

Chorus:

     F        G            C
Roll on, Roll on oh little train
F                  G                   C
Brakeman blow your whistle, throw your weight upon the chain
     Em                              F
Make way, for whatever will be, will be
            G                          C
Between the Sandman, the Brakeman, and me.

Verse 2:

And the Sandman's waiting to deliver me my dream, deliver me my dream, deliver me my dream,
  F
Today
                  Am7                           G
Guess I'll lay my head against my elbow and the window
       F                 G                   C
Let my wheels go, let my wheels go
