[N.C.] Oh my sweet little darling dear 
When these words reach your ears I’ll be long gone from here 
All alone in a railyard, the shrill whistle blows 
Oh where I’m a-going really god only knows 

[INTRO]
Dm F C Gm  Dm F C Gm

[VERSE]
     Dm                  F
I’ll call her Eliza, the girl with no name 
    C                         Gm
All wrapped up in silence, in secrets, in pain 
   Dm                         F
In north country winter, both tied to the road 
    C                          Gm
She Smiled and said nothing, I bared her my soul. 
      Dm                           F
And I knew that I loved her, but I couldn’t say why
    C                         Gm
And all of that silence might well have been lies 
         Dm                         F
She cried out “I love you, but I’ll never be free. 
       C                          Gm
There ‘aint no use guessing, just forget about me.”
 
Dm C Gm  Dm C Gm

[CHORUS]
F     C          Gm                       Bb 
Oooh, Oooh, It’s lonesome out here on the road
          F                        C
Where the last points of fire that light the night sky
     Dm                       Bb
Burn down to their embers and flicker and die 
    F    C        Gm                     Bb 
And Oooh Oooh, My fingers go numb in the cold 
          F                        C  
Where the last little spark that’s disrupting the dark 
        Dm                         Bb
Is that last bit of feeling that’s left in my heart 

Dm F C Gm   Dm F C Gm

[VERSE]
   Dm                         F
My footsteps were haunted for many long weeks 
  C                              Gm
I couldn’t find shelter in those dull dusty streets 
     Dm                         F
So I found me a railcar with no windows, no doors
       C                      Gm
Poured out all my love on the cold rusty floor 

[VERSE]
    Dm                        F 
And in the gray morning I was long gone, away 
     C                             Gm
In a far eastern country where the language is strange
          Dm                      F
Where the seabirds they circle no ocean nearby 
     C                          Gm 
Like lost souls they’re crying, lamenting their plight 

Dm C Gm

[VERSE]
    Dm                        F   
The sun rises and sets in the same goddamn place 
        C                  Gm
Shadows circle my body and laugh in my face 
         Dm                   F
Though I set out to find me a whole brand new life 
       C                      Gm 
I don’t want to forget her, I don’t want to die

Dm C Gm  Dm C Gm

[CHORUS]
F    C          Gm                       Bb
Oooh Oooh, It’s lonesome out here on the road 
          F                        C
Where the last points of fire that light the night sky 
     Dm                       Bb
Burn down to their embers and flicker and die 
    F    C        Gm                     Bb
And Oooh oooh, My fingers go numb in the cold 
          F                        C 
Where the last little spark that’s disrupting the dark
        Dm                         Bb 
Is that last bit of feeling that’s left in my heart
