Cover by Frank Turner of the nostalgic Flanders & Swann song lamenting the closure of 
the train lines in 60s Britain.

Bmaj: 335543


Intro: C   Am

Miller's Dale for Tideswell ...
Kirby Muxloe ...
Mow Cop and Scholar Green ...

C                    Am                  Dm7     G
No more will I go to Blandford Forum and Mortehoe
       C               Am                  Dm7        G
On the slow train from Midsomer Norton and Mumby Road.
Em                       Am         
No churns, no porter, no cat on a seat
Dm7                      Bmaj       E                      
At Chorlton-cum-Hardy or Chester-le-Street.
Am                     Dm7
We won't be meeting again
On the Slow Train.

I'll travel no more from Littleton Badsey to Openshaw.
At Long Stanton I'll stand well clear of the doors no more.
No whitewashed pebbles, no Up and no Down
From Formby Four Crosses to Dunstable Town.
I won't be going again
On the Slow Train.

       Em                Am
On the Main Line and the Goods Siding
The grass grows high
   Em        Am
At Dog Dyke, Tumby Woodside
And Trouble House Halt.

The Sleepers sleep at Audlem and Ambergate.
No passenger waits on Chittening platform or Cheslyn Hay.
No one departs, no one arrives
From Selby to Goole, from St Erth to St Ives.
They've all passed out of our lives
On the Slow Train, on the Slow Train.

C               Am                    G
Cockermouth for Buttermere ... on the Slow Train,
C           Am
Armley Moor Arram ...
C            Am                    G
Pye Hill and Somercotes ... on the Slow Train,
Windmill End.
