Whole Song: All Verses, Chorus and Intro. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]
G                                    Em
Look at that headlight shining through the rain
C                              D             N.C.
It must be that old Santa Fe freight train


[Verse 1]
G                                       Em
Yeah, I’m standing on Salteo Tile on an old adobe porch
    C                                                G
Across the street the Baptist church, God’s own neon torch
                                            G
With my baby sleeping safe inside, I’m the shadow she’s the light.
      C                          D            G
Now here comes the sound of the Santa Fe at midnight.


[Verse 2]
G                                      Em
Baby wakes up and calls to me: “What is that lonesome sound?
C                                        G
It echoes off the mountains out near the lights of town.”
                                       G
And I say, “Hush now, I come to you an hold you oh so tight
        C                         D           G
And rock you to the sound of the Santa Fe at midnight.”


[Chorus]
C                                    G
Blowing through those cotton fields near Cana’tior river breaks
Em                        G
past the shanty towns of old Juarez,
      C            D
The eagle and the snake
C                        D                Em
Blowin across West Texas rattlin' out of sight
    C            D           G       
The music of the Santa Fe at midnight,
       Em                        D           G 
Making love to the sound of the Santa Fe at midnight.


[Instrumental Break]
C D G       Em D G 

[Verse 3]
      G                                  Em                   
Well look where we have ended up on the edge of the Great South West
   C                                             G
Starin’ at those restless trees along the water ditch
                                       G
And up the Street the Rio Grande like Egypt’s old Blue Nile
                        C              D             G
With the memory of the early ones who rested here a while.


[Verse 4]
                     G                                Em
But now the freight trains and the long haul trucks, they’re passin’ through
      C                                  G
They don’t have the urge to wink at the likes of me and you
                                            G
It’s all just diesel smoke, iron rail and a running string of lights
     C            D           G
The music of the Santa Fe at midnight.


[Chorus]
C                                   G
Blowing through those cotton fields near Cana’tior river breaks
Em                        G
past the shanty towns of old Juarez,
     C             D
The eagle and the snake
C                          D               Em
Blowin across West Texas rattlin' out of sight
     C             D          G       
The music of the Santa Fe at midnight,
        Em                       D           G
Making love to the sound of the Santa Fe at midnight.
