Intro
Riff 1 [2x]

Verse 1
Riff 1                       Riff  1
Oh, I guess they'll say I've grown
                                  G5/E
I know more than I wanted to know
       A7                        D7sus4
I said more, than I wanted to say

Chorus 1
           Riff 1
I'm headed home
                     Riff 1
Yeah, but I'm not so sure
               G5/E                Csus2     Riff 1
That home is a place you can still get to by train

Post-Chorus 1
       G5/E
So I'm looking out the window
        A7
And I'm drifting off to sleep
        G5/E                           Csus2
With my face pressed up against the pane
         Gsus2
With the rhythm of my heart
      Csus2
And a ringing in my ears
         D7sus4*                 Riff 1 [2x]
It's the rhythm of my southbound train

Bridge
Gsus2                                     Csus2
Oh, well the wind starts to look like her hair
                                   D7sus4*
And the clouds in her bright blue eyes
                                  Csus2
As the sea and the shore fall and rise
                                      Gsus2
Like her breast as she breathes by my side

And the moon is her lips
       Csus2                        D7sus4*
As the sun is headed on down to the sea
                                 Csus2
Like her head as she lays down on me

Until we reach ocean side

Post-Chorus 2
G5/E
Over and over
  Csus2
I hear the same refrain
         Gsus2
It's the rhythm of my heart
       Csus2
And my sleepy girl's breathing
         D7sus4*                 Riff 2 [2x]
It's the rhythm of my southbound train

Verse 2
Riff 1                                Riff 1
Oh, I guess they'll say I should have known
                             G5/E
Or maybe I'm just feeling old
       A7                     D7sus4
Like a lawyer with no one to blame

Chorus 2
           Riff 1
I'm headed home
                     Riff 1
Yeah, but I'm not so sure
               G5/E            Csus2           Riff 1
That home is a place that will ever be the same

Post-Chorus 3
      G5/E
So we gathering up our things
       A7
And we head out in the cold
    G5/E                               D7sus4
And your eyes are where you carry the pain
       Gsus2
When I hear the whistle weeping
     Csus2
It's crying to the sky
         D7sus4*                 Csus2
It's the rhythm of my southbound train
         D7sus4                  Riff 1 [2x]
It's the rhythm of my southbound train
