(Capo'd version)

[Intro]

C G Am F x3


[Verse 1]

Am               C               G               F  
One last thing I beg you please, just before you go
     Am                 C           G                  F   
I've watched you fly on paper wings half way round the world until they
Am               C              G                  F
burned up in the atmosphere and sent you spiraling down
Am                 C                 G             F
Landing somewhere far from here with no one else around
                     G
To catch you falling down
                    F
And I'm looking at you now


[Chorus]

    C                      Am      F  
And I can't tell if you're laughing
   C                         Am           F   
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
          C                        Am   F   
There's a train leaving town in an hour
         C                    Am       F   
It's not waiting for you and neither am I


[Verse 2]

Am            C              G                  F  
Swing for the fences son, he must have told you once
Am          C             G               F  
 That was a conversation you took nothing from so raise your  
Am            C         G                   F  
glass now and celebrate exactly what you've done
Am            C             G                    F  
Just put off another day of knowing where you're from
                          G  
You can catch up with yourself
       F
if you run
 
    C                      Am      F  
And I can't tell if you're laughing
   C                         Am           F   
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
          C                        Am   F   
There's a train leaving town in an hour
         C                   Am         F   
It's not waiting for you and neither am I


[Break]

[Solo]

C G Am F x2
C G C Am F F G


[Verse 3]

            C              
Is this the life that you lead?
       G             
Or the life thats led for you
     Am
Will you take the road
           F
Thats been laid out before you?
     C              Am             F    
Will we cross paths somewhere else tonight

(Somewhere else tonight)


[Chorus] x2

    C                      Am      F  
And I can't tell if you're laughing
   C                         Am          F   
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
          C                        Am   F   
There's a train leaving town in an hour
         C                    Am       F   
It's not waiting for you and neither am I


    C                      Am      F  
And I can't tell if you're laughing
   C                         Am          F   
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
          C                        Am   F   
There's a train leaving town in an hour
         C                    Am       F   
It's not waiting for you and neither am I

burned up in the atmosphere and sent you spiraling down
