Electric Trains

Vocal:      Glenn

Chords typed up by Geordan Rosario, but thought up by Glenn Tilbrook.
Remember that one, folks.

I figured out the chords from a videotape of their performance on
Conan O'Brien, so if there are blatant errors, that's probably
where they're from.  Also, my tape was cut off, so I don't know the

           Cm                F                Cm            F
When I was crowned a mummy's boy by friends I didn't like
         Cm               F              Cm             F
I made a million trips to school upon my father's bike
          Bb              Cm                 Eb             Dm Cm
I used to sit between his legs, perched on a piece of wood
           Bb        Cm           Eb      Dm  Cm   G Cm
If it ever rained on us, I'd slip beneath his hood
                          F  Ab F
And at home the radio was on

Bb         Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb             Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb
>From Julie Andrews        to Jerry Garcia
             G        Cm   Ab F Bb
Life was all fun and games
             Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb                 Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb
I was out of my    head      and underneath my    bed
              G         Cm   Ab
Playing with electric trains

            Cm         F
At home the stereo was on
            Cm          F
My head was filled with rock
           Cm             F
I played a willow cricket bat guitar
    Cm               F
And soloed round the clock
   Cm                 F
My records stacked up in a pile
   Cm              Ab
Collected from the charts
           F   Bb
And Top of the Pops


Kneeling with torchlight

Shining before me
In my bed my eyeballs stuck in readers wives
Pubic hairs proudly counted everyday
F                                         Bb
Manhood took me slowly out into the milky way

ADLIB:  Bb Ab/Bb Eb/Bb (3x)

             Cm                  F
I chased the girls and made them cry
             Cm           F
My hair grew down my back
            Cm            F
The passing of my teenage years
               Cm          F
Was spent down in the sack
         Bb                  Cm
I played guitar and formed a band
           Eb             Dm Cm
I puked up all night long
          Bb              Cm
As people came to sit and stare
              Eb      Dm Cm    G Cm
While I raced through my songs
The sound of music passed me by
     Ab            F   Bb
Just like the Grateful Dead

Just a lyric correction - it's not "I made a million trips", it's "I made a meal of trips"
