Intro:
 C

[C]Call you up in the middle of the night,
[Em]like a fire flower flying by,
[Am]you were there like a blow torch burnin',
[G]I was a key that could use a little turnin'

[C]So tired that I couldn't even sleep,
[Em]so many secrets I couldn't keep,
[Am]promised myself I wouldn't weep,
[G]one more promise ' I couldn't keep

[F]It seems no one can [G]help me now,
I'm [C]in too deep theres [Am]no way out,
[F]this time I have [Em]really let myself [G]a-stray '

[C]Runaway train never goin' back,
[Em]wrong way on a one way track
[Am]seems like I should be getting somewhere,
[G]somehow I'm neither here nor there
G {Refrain}
{pause}

[C]Can you help me remember how to smile,
[Em]make it somehow seem all worth while,
[Am]how on earth did I get so jaded,
[G]last mystery seemed so naked

[C]I can go where no one else can go,
[Em]I know what no one else has known,
[Am]here I am just a drowning in the brain,
[G]with a ticket for a runaway train

[F]Everything seems jud[G]ded inside,
[C]day and night earth [Am]and sky,
[F]somehow I just [Em]don't bel[G]ieve it
G {Refrain}

[C]Runaway train never goin' back,
[Em]wrong way on a one way track
[Am]seems like I should be getting somewhere,
[G]somehow I'm neither here nor there

/ C - / Em - / Am - / G - /
/ F G / C Am / F Em G - /

:::QUIET:::
[C]Want a ticket for a runaway train?, 
[Em]like a madman laughin' at the rain,
[Am]a little out of touch little in the brain,
[G]its just easier to deal with the pain

[C]Runaway train never goin' back,
[Em]wrong way on a one way track
[Am]seems like I should be getting somewhere,
[G]somehow I'm neither here nor there

[C]Runaway train never comin' back,
[Em]runaway train tearin' up the track,
[Am]runaway train burnin' in my veins,
[G]run away but it always seems the same 

/ C - / Em - / Am - / G - /

This is by Soul Asylum. Not Tom Petty. The Tom Petty Song is called Runaway Trains and is completely different.
