Porcupine Tree - Trains (acoustic gtr)

Tabbed by mac - q000se@hotmail.com
Comments and corrections are most welcome.

I made this tab because I found all the other tabs for trains too minimalistic or inaccurate.
I'm not completely certain on a few strums or which exact strings to strum, but I feel 
is
quite accurate. This is my first tab, I hope it helps someone.

Standard tuning, capo at the 5th fret.
I used x's to mark the beat the best I could, but you're probably better off playing along
with the song rather than trying to read the rhythm off a tab.

|------------
| MAIN RIFF (Verse)
|------------
 Train set and match spied under the blind
 Shiny and contoured the railway winds
 And I've heard the sound from my cousin's bed
|------------
| PRE-CHORUS
|------------
 The hiss of the train at the railway head
|------------

|------------
| CHORUS
|------------
 Always the summers are slipping away
 Find me a way for making it stay
|------------

|------------
| MAIN RIFF (Verse)
|------------
 A 60 ton angel falls to the earth
 A pile of old metal, a radiant blur
|------------
| PRE-CHORUS
|------------
 Scars in the country, the summer and her
|------------

|------------
| CHORUS
|------------
 When I hear the engine pass
 I'm kissing you wide
 The hissing subsides
 I'm in luck

 When the evening reaches here
 You're tying me up
 I'm dying of love
 It's OK
|------------
