Paul Simon – Train In The Distance

Like so many of Paul Simon's works, the technique of each proves extremely difficult. 
I attempted a chorded version of this song after listening to the acoustic demo
available on the Hearts & Bones record.

Hope you enjoy...

Intro: D  D9  D6  Dmaj9  D (x2)

Verse One:

D      F#m      Am/C                     B7              
She was beautiful as Southern skies, the night he met her, 
Em                 A11
she was married to someone...
D      F#m      Am/C                     B7   
He was doggedly determined that he would get her, 
Em                  D6   G6
she was old, he was young...
D		      D9             D6                    G6   D/F#
From time to time he'd tip his heart, but each time she withdrew,
D   F#m            Am/C        B7             
Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance, 
Em                   D6  G6  D
Everybody thinks it's true…

Verse Two:

D    F#m           Am/C                  B7  
Well eventually the boy and the girl get married, 
Em                     A11
Sure enough they have a son...
D               F#m      Am/C                B7  
And though they both were occupied, with the child she carried, 
Em               D6   G6
Disagreements had begun...
D		    D9          D6                G6   D/F#
And in a while they fell apart, It wasn't hard to do, 
D   F#m            Am/C        B7   
Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance,
Em                   D6  G6  D
Everybody thinks it's true...

Bridge:

Cmaj9            Bm7        Bb/A7                  B11
Two disappointed believers, two people playing the game
G6             D/F#             F       C          Bb         (Open)	
Negotiations and love songs are often mistaken for one and the same

Verse Three:

D     F#m          Am/C             B7  
Now the man and the woman remain in contact, 
Em                      A11
let us say it's for the child...
D    F#m                     Am/C                   B7  
With disagreements about the meaning, of a marriage contract, 
Em            D6       G6
Conversations hard and wild...
         D		 D9                D6                  G6   D/F#
But from time to time, he makes her laugh, she cooks a meal or two
D   F#m            Am/C        B7   
Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance,
Em                   D6  G6  D
Everybody thinks it's true...
D   F#m            Am/C        B7   
Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance,
Em                   D6  G6  D
Everybody thinks it's true...

Bridge:

Cmaj9                    Bm7     Bb/A7            B11
What is the point of this story, what information pertain,
G6                            D/F#       
The thought that life could be better,
   F       C                 Bb             (Open)	
Is woven indelibly, into our hearts, and our brains...

Outro: D  D9  D6  Dmaj9  D (x2)
