"Trying To Stop Your Leaving"
set tempo
Intro:  (Em) (Cadd9) (G) (D), (Em) 
(G) (D)

Got a (G) guitar (Cadd9), got a (G) guitar on my (Cadd9) back
And I'm (Em) standing on this (D) lonesome railroad (G) track

Train's a (G) coming (Cadd9); it'll (G) be here ‘fore too (Cadd9) long
But I (Em) don't think I can (D) stop it with a (G) song
Girl that's (Em) kind of the (Cadd9) way I'm (G) feeling (D)
(Em) Trying to (Cadd9) stop your leaving (G) (D)

Got a (G) pebble (Cadd9), got a (G) pebble in my (Cadd9) hand
And I (Em) toss it out into the (D) middle of the Rio (G) Grand
But the River keeps (G) running (Cadd9)
Don't even (G) know that I'm (Cadd9) around
I could (Em) throw in a million (D) more and not slow it (G) down
Girl that's (Em) kind of the (Cadd9) way, I'm (G) feeling (D)
(Em) Trying to (Cadd9) stop your leaving (G)

(Em) (Cadd9) (G)There's nothing I (D) wouldn't try
(Em) (Cadd9) (G) If I thought it would (D) change your mind (Em)

You don't (G) love me (Cadd9), you don't (G) love me any (Cadd9) more
And I (Em) know as soon as (D) you walk out that (G) door
Train's a (G) coming (Cadd9), River's (G) running (Cadd9), Train's a (G) coming, Rivers 
running, Pains a (G) coming, tears are (Cadd9) running

And that's (Em) kind of the (Cadd9) way I'm feeling (G) (D)
Knowing (Em) I couldn't (Cadd9) stop your leaving (G) (D)
(Em) (Cadd9) (G) (D),(Em) (Cadd9) 
(Em) (Cadd9) (G) (D), (Em) (Cadd9) (G)(D)

It sounds a little better if you play the chorus like this:

Girl that's (Am) kind of the (Cadd9) way, I'm (G) feeling (D)
