[Verse]

C                Em
I hope this old train breaks down
Am                   G
Then I could take a walk around
C                   Em
And, see what there is to see
Am                  G
And time is just a melody
 
               C
With all the people in the street
         Em                   
Walk as fast as their feet can take them
Am                   G
I just roll through town
 
               C
And though my window's got a view, well
      Em
The frame Im looking through
         Am                   G
Seems to have no concern for now, so for now
 
 
[Chorus]
 
C  C/B
I need this
Am             G 
Old train to breakdown
C  C/B
Oh please just
Am              G
Let me please breakdown

C   Em   Am   G  x2 
 

[Verse]

C             Em
This engine screams out loud
Am                G
Centipede gonna crawl westbound
C                Em
So I don't even make a sound
Am                          G
It's gunna sting me when I leave this town
         C
All the people in the street
           Em
That I'll never get to meet
          Am                    G
If these tracks don't bend somehow
    C
And I got no time
     Em
That I got to get to
 Am                   G
Where I don't need to be, so I
 
 
[Chorus]
 
C  
G        F        C
I wanna break on down
But I cant stop now
Let me break on down
 
G    F
  
         C
But you cant stop nothing
       Em
If you got no control
         Am
Of the thoughts in your mind
          G
That you kept in, you know
     C
You don't know nothing
        Em
But you don't need to know
     Am
The wisdoms in the trees
          G
Not the glass windows
 
     C
You cant stop wishing
        Em
If you don't let go
     Am
But things that you find
         G
And you lose, and you know
     C
You keep on rolling
        Em
Put the moment on hold
      Am
The frames too bright
             G
So put the blinds down low
 
[Outro]
 
C   Em   Am   G
                I wanna break on down
C   Em   Am   G
                But I cant stop now
C   Em   Am   G
C   Em   Am   G
C
