Train In The Distance
Words & music By Paul Simon 1981



Eb         Bb/D        |Bbm/Db        
   She was beautiful as Southern skies

C7            |       |
  The night he met her

Fm7                       |Bb9 |
    She was married to someone

Eb        Bb/D      |Bbm/Db                 C      |
   He was doggedly determined that he would get her

Fm7                   |Ab/Eb Eb|
    He was old, he was young

                       |Db/Eb        |
 From time to time he'd tip his heart

Ab/Eb                      |Ab  |Ebmaj7/G |
      But each time she withdrew

Eb                    |Db/Eb                           |
   Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance

Ab/Eb                      |Ebm7 |
      Everybody thinks it's true

Eb                    |Db/Eb                           |
   Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance

Ab/Eb                      |Ebm7 |Eb |Db/Eb |Ab/Eb |Ebm7 |
      Everybody thinks it's true










Eb       Bb/D         |Bbm/Db      C7      |       |
   Well eventually the boy and the girl get married

Fm7                        |Bb9 |
    Sure enough they have a son

Eb                 Bb/D         |Bbm/Db                  C      |
   And though they both were occupied with the child she carried

Fm7                    |Ab/Eb Eb|
    Disagreements had begun

                    |Db/Eb           |
 And in a while they       fell apart

Ab/Eb                  |Ab |Ebmaj7/G |
      It wasn't hard to do

Eb                    |Db/Eb                           |
   Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance

Ab/Eb                      |Ebm7 |
      Everybody thinks it's true

Eb                    |Db/Eb                           |
   Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance

Ab/Eb                      |Eb  |
      Everybody thinks it's true

Dbmaj9                   |Cm7    |
       Two disappointed believers

Bdim                       |Cm7/Bb |
     Two people playing the game

Ab                 |Eb/G
   Negotiations and love songs

   |Gb      |Db/F     |Cb            |Bb11 |  |
Are often mistaken for    one and the same


Eb         Bb/D       |Bbm/Db  C7     |       |
   Now the man and the woman remain in contact

Fm7                        |Bb9  |
    Let us say it's for the child

Eb          Bb/D               |Bbm/Db  
   With disagreements about the meaning

              C       |
Of a marriage contract

Fm7                       |Ab/Eb Eb|
    Conversations hard and wild

                
But from time to time

  |Db/Eb          |
He makes her laugh

Ab/Eb                    |Ab |Ebmaj7/G |
      She cooks a meal or two


Eb                    |Db/Eb                           |
   Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance

Ab/Eb                      |Ebm7 |
      Everybody thinks it's true

Eb                    |Db/Eb                           |
   Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance

Ab/Eb                      |Eb  |
      Everybody thinks it's true


Dbmaj9                          |Cm7  |
       What is the point of this story

Bdim                    |Cm7/Bb |
     What information pertains

Ab                               |Eb/G
   The thought that life could be better

  |Gb     |Db/F   |
Is woven indelibly

Cb         |Bb11  |  |Bb11        |Eb    |Db/Eb |
   Into our hearts         and our brains

Ab/Eb        |Ebm7                  |
      (Like a train in the distance)


Repeat and fade:

Eb |Db/Eb |Ab/Eb |Ebm7 |

I like to play this with a capo on three, just down transpose the chords three times to get it there. Nice and easy to play there.
