Intro:
G        F         Am          C

play it twice

1st verse:

G                         F
I wish I was a fisherman, tumbling on the seas
Am                               C 
Far away from dry land, and it's bitter memories
G                               F
Casting you my sweet light with abandonment and love
Am                                       C
No ceiling staring down on me, save the starry sky above

Chorus:
                 G     F         Am            C
With light in my hair, you in my arms, woo woo ooh


2nd verse:

I wish I was the brake man, on a Hartland diesel train
Crashing headlong into the heartland, like a cannon in the rain
With the beating of the sleepers, and the burning of the coal
Counting towns flashing by me, in a night that's full of soul

Chorus:

G                             F 
Oh I know I will be loosened, from bonds that hold me tight
Am                                     C
And the chains all hung around me will fall away at last
G                                       F
And on that fine and fateful day I will take thee in my arms
Am                                      C 
I will ride the night train, and I will be the fisherman

Repeat chorus

I like this tab. Gives you an accurate idea of how to play the song. (I tried it on the uke first, and it sounds good.)
