This is the right tab, my first tab!!!
It sounds good, this is a beautiful forgotten song of the marvellous Jim Croce, 
from the lost LP "Facets".
With the voice of the wife Ingrid Croce.
It is perfect for a duet.

CAPO 2

G                         D           G                 C
The railroads and the riverboats that bred the mighty man
        G                 D               C                     D                    
That we read about and we dream about, the men who built this land
        G                 D              G                       C
And the farmers and the lumbermen and the men who worked the mills
        G                 D         C                    D
And the poor hard working miners who died inside the hills


                      G                            C
While the rivers that flow are the blood of our land
                          D                               G
And the trucks they keep rumbling on the great concrete band
                       G                              C
And the railroads keep pushing to be all they once were
              D                                G      
And nature is calling, no one's listening to her


        G                         D      G                   C
And the immigrants by the boat load in a dozen different tones
         G                  D              C                  D
Sang of freedom in the new land, climbed the ladder rung by rung
        G               D                G                 C
Some to Boston, some to Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and St. Paul
            G               D          C                     D
And the old ways led to new days, they were welcome one and all



                      G                            C
While the rivers that flow are the blood of our land
                          D                               G
And the trucks they keep rumbling on the great concrete band
                       G                              C
And the railroads keep pushing to be all they once were
              D                                G      
And nature is calling, no one's listening to her


           G                D                 G                   C
With the railroads and the riverboats and the bread lines far behind
         G             D            C                   D
And the days we sang together, long gone but still in mind
         G            D                 G                   C
And the men who came before us, men who brought us to today
         G           D               C                  D
And the story still unravels from the dreams of yesterday



                      G                            C
While the rivers that flow are the blood of our land
                          D                               G
And the trucks they keep rumbling on the great concrete band
                       G                              C
And the railroads keep pushing to be all they once were
              D                                G      
And nature is calling, no one's listening to her
              D                                G      
And nature is calling, no one's listening to her
