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 the song to be attributed to Tom Petty, not the one listed above.
Runaway TrainS By Tom Petty and Mike Campbell

She's up there all alone
I'm down here changing lanes
Her room was dark and cold
I'm listening to the waves

And I'm depending on time, babe
To get you out of my mind

Chorus
I guess it's one of those things
You can never explain
Like when an angel cries
Like runaway trains

Like one of those times
That's never the same
Like when someone dies
Like runaway trains

She says 'I understand
I'm used to being alone
And holding my own hand
I'm stronger than you know'

(Repeat Chorus)

Don't blame me

I would give anything if someone had chords or tabs for the actual Tom Petty song I've pasted here. It's pretty cool.

You're absolutely right with your lyrics - they are the right ones. This is one of my favorite Petty songs and chords/tabs are nowhere to be found. Maybe I'll give it a shot myself...
