Intro: G   G   G   G
   
       G   G/F#   G   G/F#   (x2)

G        G/F#         Em             D
Backpack on my back, walking down a railroad track 
G                 G/F#      Em      D
   Oh, I've been wanting to see you 
G             G/F#               Em              D
Eyes upon the rows of trees, an endless sea in front of me 
G                 G/F#      Em      D
   Oh, I've been longing to see you 


G           G/F#         Em           D
You've been on my mind, talk about a lonely time 
G                 G/F#        Em      D
   You don't know how much I need you 
G                G/F#           Em             D
Once I feel the downy snow, the only home I've ever known 
G                 G/F#        Em      D
   I'll hold you close when I see you 


C                          D      C
   There's no way I could let you go 
                        D       C
There's no way I could let you go 
                        D      C
There's no way I could let you go 


        G
And it seems to me 
         C   
We sing soft and low 
        G                  C 
Such a sweet hello...... 


[G G/F# Em D] x2


G       G/F#          Em            D
Backpack on my back, standing on a railroad track 
G              G/F#        Em      D
   It won't be long 'til I see you 
G               G/F#              Em             D
Why do I always have to leave the only one I'll ever need? 
G              G/F#           Em         D
   Now hold me close while I breathe you


C                          D      C
   There's no way I could let you go 
                        D      C
There's no way I could let you go 
                        D      C
There's no way I could let you go 


        G
And it seems to me 
         C   
We sing soft and low 
        G                   C 
Such a sweet hello...... 


G        G/F#         Em             D
Backpack on my back, walking down a railroad track 
G                 G/F#      Em      D
   Oh, I've been wanting to see you 
G             G/F#               Em              D
Eyes upon the rows of trees, an endless sea in front of me 
G                 G/F#      Em      D
   Oh, I've been longing to see you 


G          G/F#         Em            D
You've been on my mind, talk about a lonely time // There's no way I could let you go
G                 G/F#       Em       D
   You don't know how much I need you   // There's no way I could let you go
G             G/F#              Em              D
Eyes upon the rows of trees, an endless sea in front of me // There's no way I could let you go
G                 G/F#      Em      D
   Oh, I've been longing to see you   // There's no way I could let you go


G       G/F#          Em             D
Backpack on my back, walking down a railroad track // And it seems to me
G                 G/F#      Em      D
   Oh, I've been longing to see you   // We sing soft and low
G             G/F#               Em             D
Eyes upon the rows of trees, an endless sea in front of me // Such a sweet hello.....
G                 G/F#      Em      D
   Oh, I've been longing to see you 



G          G/F#         Em            D
You've been on my mind, talk about a lonely time // There's no way I could let you go
G                 G/F#        Em (hold)
   You don't know how much I need you
