'A Train Robbery'
by Levon Helm

http://www.levonhelm.com/

===========================


Intro: F


F                        F           F
The foreman touched the cold steel lines
F                 G           F
The rail bed was frozen with ice
F                              F            F
In the distance an engine was keeping good time
F                  G           F
The steam whistle moaned just twice


F                              F
Down in the cut past the old Tressel bridge
F                   G
Twelve fine horses stood
F                           F           F
Masked men shivered in the cold on the ridge
F                 G         F
Not far from the Glendale woods


F                              F       F
The brass lamp shone from the swaying train
F                G            F
When the driver saw the red light
F                             F      F
Her iron brakes sparked like silver rain
F                 G                   F
And the metals screamed through the night


F                              F
The baggage man peered out to look for the fault
F                        G
When fear froze up his heart
F                                     F    F
He was staring down the barrel of an army colt
F                   G        F
That threatened to tear him apart




F
We will burn your train to cinders
F                      F
so throw the money on down
F
Open up your damned express car
F                      F
And jump down to the ground


F
But we won't touch that old woman
F                             F
[Incomprehensible] and they claimed
F
They ain't offered no reward
F                    F
For Frank and Jesse James
F                 F
Frank and Jesse James





F                        F               F
In long soldier's coats frayed with the years
F              G         F
Quickly they scrambled aboard
F                              F          F
Men were the sweatin' and the women shed tears
F                G            F
And a preacher prayed to the Lord


F                                      F
When they opened the safe there was nothing for them
F                                 G
So they strode down through the train
F                             F        F
What a miserable sight these desperate men
F                            G             F
Robbin' old folks for their gold, watch, chains




F
We will burn your train to cinders
F                      F
so throw the money on down
F
Open up your damned express car
F                      F
And jump down to the ground


F
But we won't touch that old woman
F                             F
[Incomprehensible] and they claimed
F
They ain't offered no reward
F                    F
For Frank and Jesse James
F                F
Frank and Jesse James




F                                     F
Now some say the devil had taken his soul
F                      G
Some say his spirit survived
F                                     F            F
But we all know he was nothin' but a Missouri farm boy
F                 G     F
Just fighting to stay alive


F                  F
High above that railroad bed
F                                 G
On a ridge where the pines grow tall
F                                     F          F
If you listen to the wind, there's a ghost of a chance
F                  G          F
You can still hear old Jesse call





F
We will burn your train to cinders
F                     F
so throw the money on down
F
Open up your damned express car
F                     F
And jump down to the ground


F
But we won't touch that old woman
F                              F
[Incomprehensible] and they claimed
F
They ain't offered no reward
F                     F
For Frank and Jesse James
F                 F
Frank and Jesse James
