C           G      D               G
Station was empty, Trains were all gone.
C             G           D          G 
Reached in my pocket, And waited for dawn.


Chorus:
C                G          D            G
The clock played drums, And I hummed the sax.
        C                       D        G
And the wind whistled down, The railroad tracks.
    C           G        D         G   
Hey three for a quarter, One for a dime.
     C                      D             G
I'll bet it's tomorrow, By Rocky Mountain time.



C             G               D            G
Walked in the restaurant, For something to do
C               G          D          G
Waitress yelled at me, And so did the food
        C            G                  D             G
And the water tastes funny, When you're far from your home
         C                      D         G
But it's only the thirsty, That hunger to roam


(Repeat chorus)


      F                    G     
We'll build us a castle on Main Street
    F                              G
And pretend that we're down on the farm
      F                            G
Hell, we'll hold out as long as we have to
           A                      D
Then we'll twist off each other's arm


G             C            G
Christ I'm so mixed up and lonely
        C         B/C             G         
I can't even make friends with my brain
        C        B/C           G
I'm too young to be where I'm going
        C        B/C        G     
But I'm too old to go back again


C           G      D               G
Station was empty, Trains were all gone.
C             G           D          G 
Reached in my pocket, And waited for dawn.


(Repeat Chorus)
