   I ain't got time to take no fast train                               
Am             G             F                                                
Oh, the lonely days are gone                                             
                  E7

Mike, this is pretty close, and thanks for putting it up. My upgrade is instead of playing F chord on the second line of verses (e.g. "fast train," play D7 instead (so also over "home again").

Then you missed the first line of the bridge so you have:
I'll be right home, My baby she wrote me a letter...then you go right into "said she couldn't live, etc." Just need to insert the first line of the bridge:
C G F C G
Well, she wrote me a letter, said she couldn't live without me no more,
C G F C G E7
Listen Mr. can't you see I got to get back to my baby once more anyway

Give it a try and see what you think. Wonderful old song...I always loved the Joe Cocker/Leon Russell version from Mad Dogs & Englishmen better than the original Box Tops recording. I actually used to be a DJ...and it was a common joke if were running long in the hour and you had to run a very short song to get you to the newsbreak/station ID at the top of the hour you always played the Box Tops single - it was less than 2 minutes! :-) The Joe/Leon chord sequence you have (Am - C - D - C - D -C (2 times) is dead-on, so thanks for doing the song!!
