Tom Russell - Amelia’s Railroad Flat


CAPO: 4th Fret



[Intro]
C

[Verse 1]
                           F
Amelia, she worked for the railroad
G                   C
Doing what, I never knew
                             Dm
But I’d meet her down at the depot
G                      C
Every day at half-past two


[Verse 2]
                            F
And we climbed the old wood stairway
G                      C
Find the key below the mat
                        Dm
Watch the sunset on the freight yard
G                       C
Up at Amelia’s railroad flat   


[Verse 3]
                     F
Russian vodka in the freezer
G                      C
From the Polish liquor store
                       Dm
Spanish rice, Moroccan oranges
G                     C
Persian rugs upon the floor


[Verse 4]
                     F
And Amelia came from Denmark
G                            C
She bought a pair of Siamese cats
                               Dm
They’d wake us up there in the morning
G                    C
At Amelia’s railroad flat    


[Bridge]
          Am                                   F
And every night the midnight ghost rode out on time
Am                                F
Rolling down the line at twelve-o-nine
         Am                                F
And we’d sit and count the cars out on the track
        C                                             G
As they shook the bedroom window of Amelia’s railroad flat


[Instrumental]   
G    F   G   C     Dm    G   C   


[Verse 5]
                                F
But the freight yards, they are gone now
G                           C
And the buildings block the sun
                      Dm
And Amelia sailed for Demark
G                           C
Way back in Nineteen Eighty-One


[Verse 6]
                        F
But every time I hear a freight train
   G                       C
Or watch the sunset on the tracks
                            Dm
Lord, I recall those summer evenings
G                       C
Up at Amelia’s railroad flat


[Verse 7]
                        F
And every time I hear a freight train
G                       C
Blowing lonely down the track
                             Dm
I hear those bedroom windows rattle
G                       C
Up at Amelia’s railroad flat
                                Dm
Lord, how those bedroom windows rattled
G                       C
Up at Amelia’s railroad flat
