"No way to slow down..."


Tuning: EADG


The bending on the string should be really soft and gentle
just to produce the "wobbly" effect

Lyrics:

In the shuffling madness 
of the locomotive breath, 
runs the all-time loser, 
headlong to his death. 
"Oh" He feels the piston scraping 
steam breaking on his brow 
old Charlie stole the handle and 
the train "it" won't stop going 
no way to slow down. "OhooOh"

He sees his children "jumping" off 
at the stations one by one. 
His woman and his best friend 
in bed and having fun. 
"Oh" He's crawling down the corridor 
on his hands and knees 
old Charlie stole the handle and 
the train "it" won't stop going 
no way to slow down. "Heaheya" 

He hears the silence howling  
catches angels as they fall. 
And the all-time winner 
has got him by the balls. 
"Oh" He picks up Gideons Bible 
open at page one 
I "THINK" God "he" stole the handle and
the train "it" won't stop going 
no way to slow down.

if you watch them play it live, the bassist is doing slides, not bends
