Downbound Train
Bruce Springsteen
Originally recorded in 1982 for the Nebraska Album, this solo version is a haunting ballad that is almost the 
same as the rocking version [some lyrical differences] recorded for the Born In The U.S.A. album later that 
year.

         G
I had a job, I had a girl
                 D                    G
I had something going mister in this world
G        
I got laid off down at the auto yard
               D               G
Our love went bad, times got hard
       C
Now I work down at the carwash
       G
Where all it does is rain
G                                            D                 G
Sometimes you feel like you're a rider, baby, on a downbound train


G
She just said "Joe I gotta go
           D                       G
We had it once we ain't got it any more"
G 
She packed her bags left me behind
                D                   G
She bought a ticket on the Central Line
            C
Nights as I sleep, I still hear the whistle whining
                 G
I feel her soft kiss in the misty morning rain
G                                                 D                  G
Sometimes don't you feel like you're a rider, baby, on a downbound train


G       /      C   /   G    /    D   /   G  
Hahhhhhh [repeat as chords go on]


G
Last night I heard her voice
         D                            G
You were crying, crying, you were so alone
G
You said your love had never died
               D                 G
And you were waiting for me at home
                  C
Well I put on my jacket, I ran through the woods
                G
I ran till I thought my chest would explode
G
There in the clearing, beyond the highway
G         D                          G
In the moonlight, our wedding house shone
G                     C
I rushed through the yard, I burst through the front door
        G
And then up the stairs I climbed
G
The room was dark, our bed was empty
           D                        G
And then I heard that long whistle whine
            D                                       G
And then I dropped to my knees, hung my head and cried
           C             
Well now I swing a sledge hammer on a railroad gang
              G
Knocking down them cross ties, working in the rain
                                                 D                  G
Sometimes don't it feel like you're a rider, baby, on a downbound train


[outro]

G     /     D   /  C   /   G   /   

C   /   G   /   C   /   G   /   C   /   G [repeat until end]

Hahhhhhh [this part is sung along with the above chords]
Hoooo hoo-hoo-hoo
Hahhh hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo
Hoooo hoo-hoo-hoo
