John Schumann of Redgum fame with new group John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew 
from the album "Lawson" http://www.schumann.com.au/john/ 

     Em                              G
At suburban railway stations you may see them as you pass,
          D                                Am
There are signboards on the window saying, Wait here second class;
       Em                              G
And to me the whir and thunder and the clunk of running gear,
        D                         Am
Seem to be forever saying, saying Second class wait here
Em
Wait here second class
Second Class wait here

        Em                               G
Yes the second class were waiting in the days of serf and prince,
        D                                      Am
And the second class are waiting, they've been waiting ever since,
          Em                                    G
There are signboards in the background, and the line is bare and drear,
         D                                  Am
Yet they wait beneath a signboard, sneering Second class wait here.
Em
Wait here second class
Second Class wait here

       Em                                 G
I have waited often in the winter, in the mornings dark and damp,
         D                               Am
When the asphalt platform glistened underneath that lonely lamp,
      Em                                 G
And I waited there and I suffered, and I waited there for many a year,
D                                       Am
Slaved beneath the signboards, sneering Second class wait here.
Em/D/Em/G/Em/D/Em/G

      Em                             G
Oh! A man must feel revengeful for a boyhood such as mine,
       D                             Am
God! I hate the very houses near the workshop by the line;
        Em                                G
And the smell of railway stations and the roar of running gear,
        D                                    Am
And the scornful-sneering signboards, saying Second class wait here.
Em
Wait here second class
Second Class wait here
Em/D/Em/G/Em/D/Em/G

          Em                                     D
There's a train with Death for a driver, that is ever going past,
      C                                 Em
There will be no class compartments when it's All aboard at last;
        Em                                 D
For the long white jasper platform with an Eden in the rear;
          C                                Em
And there won't be any signboards saying - Second class wait here.
Em
Wait here second class
Second Class wait here
