[Verses]
C               C/B
feel like an old railroad man
F                Am        G
ridin' out on the bluemont line
C                C/B
hummin' along old dominion blues
F                   Am               G
not much to see and not much left to lose 
      Fmaj7                     C
and i know i can walk along the tracks
       Am                            Fmaj7
it may take a little longer but i'll know
       G           C      C/B  F  Am  G 
how to find my way back


C                 C/B 
i feel like an old railroad man
F                 Am                G 
who's really tried the best that he can
C                      C/B
to make his life add up to something good
F                  Am              G 
but this engine no longer burns on wood
      Fmaj7                  C
and i guess i may never understand
    Am 
the times that i live in
        Fmaj7      G        C    C/B  F  Am  G
are not made for a railroad man

C                 C/B
i feel like an old railroad man

getting on board at the end of an age
C                      C/B
the station's empty and the whistle blows
F
things are faster now
         Am                G
and this train is just too slow
      Fmaj7                     C 
and i know i can walk along the tracks
       Am                            Fmaj7 
it may take a little longer but i'll know
       G           C      C/B  F  Am  G
how to find my way back


C       C/B 
F       Am  G   (10x)

Good day - there's an error in the 6th line of every verse. The first chord should be an E minor and not an A minor as shown. I've seen him perform this tune several times and you can see it on youtube and he clearly plays an E Minor in this line.
