Intro: D* Cadd9 C* D  X2

D*
Said I want to live the city life 
Cadd9
This small town could eat me alive 
C*                                                D
I gotta pack my things and go where the railroad takes me 
D*
Mama's too poor to send me away 
               Cadd9
But I've been saving up on most everyday 
C*                                          D
Little bit out of each check from the Gas & Deli 


D*       Cadd9                   C*
And the whistle keeps on blowing 
          D
And the train keeps on rolling 



CHORUS:

And he said 
D*                    Cadd9 
I ain't never been to New York City 
C*                        D
I ain't seen the San Francisco Bay 
D*                     Cadd9
I ain't never tried my hand in Vegas 
        C*
But you bet your bottom dollar 
                            D           D*
That's where I'm going the day after today 


       D*
So he locked the door and he killed the lights 
       Cadd9
Took a six pack to get him through the night 
       C*                                 D
Didn't have a plan just a good sense of direction 
     D*
And Maybelline, his beauty queen 
     Cadd9
She cried all night cause the sheet were clean 
       C*                                  D
But he left her a lovers' note there apologizing 


D*        Cadd9                     C*
He said I hear the whistle blowing 
       D     
Gotta catch it the train is rolling 


CHORUS

D*
The air is thick on the concrete isle 
      Cadd9
Ain't nothing green for like twenty miles 
     C*                                 D
And he ain't use to the sun and moon a hiding 
      D*
So he took his foot from out his mouth 
        Cadd9
And he packed his things and went back down south 
     C*                               D
But Maybelline said "Babe my time's arising." 


D*     Cadd9                     C*
Said I hear the whistle blowing 
        D
Gotta catch it the train is rolling 



And she said 
D*                    Cadd9
I ain't never been to New York City 
C*                        D
I ain't seen the San Francisco Bay 
D*                     Cadd9
I ain't never tried my hand in Vegas 
 C*                                D
I never seen the L.A lights shine bright 
         G
Bright, brighter than your smile was ever 
Cadd9
Brighter than my desire was ever 
C*                                       D
Longer burning than our love was ever...ohhhhh 


CHORUS
