Glen Campbell

1976 album Bloodline which followed Rhinestone Cowboy


Intro  F  C  D

Verse 1

G
In the eyes of the old ones
    C               D
Who watched from a distance
       G        G7       C    D
It was devilish magic at best
        G             G7
But the hearts of the children
     C           D
Were filled with excitement
        C                D           G
As they dreamed of their home in the West

Verse 2

       C                     G
Oh the engine would fire the black smoke would rise
                            G7     D
Thru the spray of the slick silver steam
       C                        G
It was something of wonder that steel plated thunder
      D        G        Bm   
That moved the American dream
     D          C       A
That moved the American dream

A  D  A  D

Verse 3

               A
I can hear the sleepy whistle blowin'
              D
I can see the sparks beneath the wheels
        A
As she leaves the hills behind her
        D
For the ragged cotton fields
 A                   B7
In a dusty one-horse station
        D                 A
All the children grow impatient
                         B7            D    
And they stare into the distance for a sign

Chorus 1

N/C      E     D                  G       A
Here she comes can't you hear the whistle whine
         E           G          D        A 
Here she comes she's rollin' in right on time
           E              D          A        Bm
Well I can feel her she's runnin' in my Blood Line
      D                   A
she's Running' in my bloodline

Banjo riff in A

Verse 4

A
Overman Grady waves his lantern
        D
"All on board" I hear him cry
       A
 While Lucius stokes the cinder Lord
              D
and wipes the coal dirt from his eyes
            A                 B7
Yes she was proud and full of fire
       D                A
As she rode that silver wire
                              B7           D        
From the Kansas Plains to the great Sierra Pine

Chorus 2

N/C      E      G                 D       A
Here she comes can't you hear the whistle whine 
         E           G          D        A
Here she comes she's rollin' in right on time
      E              D           A       Bm                   
I can feel her she's runnin' in my blood line 
     D                  A
yeah running in my bloodline                          


Riff  A D B7 D A D Bm A G
         
          Yeah
Verse 5

G                        G7
Now the stockyards are empty
C                   D
The steel rails are rusted
     G                          C    D
They belong to the wind and the sand
       G
But we long will remember
    C             D
the steel and the timber
        C                              G
And the pulse that once beat thru this land

Outro

       C                     G
Oh the engine would fire the black smoke would rise
                            G7     D                         
Thru the spray of the slick silver steam
       C                        G
It was something of wonder that steel plated thunder
     D         G        Bm   Bm7  
That moved the American dream
 D        C        G     C
moved the American dream
             G    C  
The American dream
G     C        Bm  Bm7 G
D  r  e  a  m
