Capo 3


[Intro]



[Verse 1]
          E
Well they say you live & learn but it really seems more to me
                         B7              E
Like all along I've been learning how to live
         E
Well for years I been drifting like a boat lost out at sea
                                       B7          E
I've been out walking them ties on the railroad of sin

         E
Well now looking back on my life now at some of the things I done
               B7              E
Makes me wanna hang my head in shame
        E
I was a no good, no account, low down heartbreaker
                                B7          E    E/F# E/G E/G#
On that railroad of sin I was a highballing train


[Chorus]
           A                             E
I'm just a poor boy had to beg, steal, & borrow
                    B7              E
Just a leaf blowing lonesome in the wind
                                  A
I'm just a hitchhiker on that old highway of sorrow
       E                         B7          E
Just a highballing train on that railroad of sin


[Solo]
|A   |E   |E   |B7 E |E   |


[Verse 3]
               E
Well you won't feel it and you won't hear it coming
                         B7                   E
Cause when she's rolling slow it don't make a sound
                                      B7
But I got that throttle to ten on the railroad of sin
           E                      B7            E
I'm coming off of the rails and I can't slow it down


[Chorus]
           A                             E
I'm just a poor boy had to beg, steal, & borrow
                    B7              E
Just a leaf blowing lonesome in the wind
                                  A
I'm just a hitchhiker on that old highway of sorrow
       E                         B7          E
Just a highballing train on that railroad of sin


[Solo]
|A   |E   |E   |B7 E |

[Chorus]
           A                             E
Well I'm a poor boy had to beg, steal, & borrow
                    B7              E
Just a leaf blowing lonesome in the wind
                                  A
I'm just a hitchhiker on that old highway of sorrow
       E                         B7          E
Just a highballing train on that railroad of sin
