The Doobie Brothers - Long Train Runnin' 
Original idea by: olandere@agcs.com (Eric Olander) 
Edited by Martin Pagh (paggee@gmail.com) 
Comments or corrections please mail me. 

Standard tuning: EADGBe.

The signs "\" and "/" marks the strumming (down- or upwards), 
and the ones in brackets are barely strummed.

	Verse 2 (0:43), Strum as intro, one line per measure:

You know I saw miss Lucy
down along the tracks
She lost her home and family
and she won't be comin' back

     This part is the same as in verse 1:

Without love
where would you be now
Without loooooove



___________

	Verse 3 (1:07), Strum like this, and then mute strings.
	Try and make the last part, the G7 chord hit on 1.

Well the Illinois Central
and the Southern Central Freight
gotta keep on pushin' mama
'cause you know they're running late

	And this is the same as before:

Without love
where would you be now
Without love

___________

	C-part: Solo over verse 1 chords, different strumming (listen to song again)

___________

	Verse 3 repeated:

Well the Illinois Central
and the Southern Central Freight
gotta keep on pushin' mama
'cause you know they're running late

Without love
where would you be now
Without love

___________

	Verse 4: Strum hard and without sustain:

  \   \   \   \   
|-10---10---10---10-10--|
|-10---10---10---10-10--|
|-11---11---11---11-10--|

|-12---12---12---12-10--|
|-x----x----x----x--x---|
  1  & 2  & 3  & 4  &
Where the pistons keep on charmin'
and the wheels go round' and round'
And the steel rails are cold and hard
for the miles they go around

	And this part is as usual:

Without love
where would you be right now

	And here stop playing at all:

     Without love
     where would you be now?

__________

	Outro: (2:46) Play same as intro. 
	At (3:14) he does something i can't quite figure out, 
	but don't play it and no one will notice anyway.


Got to get it baby wont you move it down?
Won't you move it down?
Baby baby baby baby wont you move it down?
When the big train run
and the train is movin' on
I got to keep on movin'
Keep on movin'
Keep on movin'
Gonna keep on movin'
