Dusty boxcar wall by Eric Andersen

These are just the basic chords he uses, add hammer-ons and pull-offs when necessary.
The Chords are the same for the chorus and the verses just repeat he same progression. 
the solo add the high g on the Em chord and just add a little flare to your strumming. 
is a must know song for any folk aficionado play it like you mean it…enjoy


Chorus
Em                                D   D/A D  D/A
I’m going away my baby,
C                C/B                Em
I’m gonna leave you pretty gal
For a train passed by while you lay sleeping
I’ll write you a letter on a dusty boxcar wall

I once had a love in old Kentucky
I once had a love in sunny Tennessee
But a New York gal brought me pain and sadness
Now I’m here as lonely as I can be
Chorus
City women bring you grief and sorrow
Country girls are as sweet as they can be
City women are as cold as they are shallow
But a country girl’s love is as deep as the deep blue sea
Chorus
Oh when I die and go to heaven
That’ll be tha last train ride I’ll ever see
They’ll put a silver spike upon my gravestone
And my casket beneath a weeping willow tree
Tabbed by ABond
