                   Freight Train - Elizabeth Cotten
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Dave S. 
Email: prime-prine@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard


C                           G      G7
Freight train Freight train run so fast
Dm            G             C
Freight train Freight train run so fast
E7                     *F    G   F
Please don't tell what train I'm on
           C         G          C
They won't know what route I've gone

C                  G     G7
When I am dead and in my grave
Dm      G          C
No more good times here I crave
E7                     *F   G   F
Place the stones at my head and feet
          C             G       C
Tell them all that I've gone to sleep.

C               G       G7
When I die Lord bury me deep
Dm       G      C
Way down on old Chestnut street
E7                 *F  G   F
Then I can hear old Number 9
   C         G       C
As she comes rolling by.

That's how I started out playing this song, too--not knowing it had words to it, or who wrote it! I found out decades ago, but still.
