About this tab version
It's played in a different key than the other tabs on this website holding the potential to be easier for folks to learn who are more comfortable with a different key scale. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This is the broken down melody for Freight Train. You can add little nuances to it to make 
it your own and spice it up a bit. I just have it tabbed how I learned it by watching folks
play it and there's definitely some spots where you can shortcut or substitute but this is 
just the foundation of what I play. I'd also love to get feedback on this tab to see what 
other folks are doing on their fingerboards. 

This tab is in the key of G

Freight train, Freight train, run so fast

Freight train, Freight train, run so fast

Please don't tell what train I'm on

They won't know what route I've gone. 



When I am dead and in my grave 

No more good times here I crave

Place the stones at my head and feet

Tell them all that I've gone to sleep.



When I die, Lord, bury me deep

Way down on old Chestnut street

Then I can hear old Number 9

As she comes rolling by.
