...DOWNTOWN TRAIN... by Tom Waits
--------------------.............

*from 'Rain Dogs' (1985)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: C#)


Intro:

C, F  G (x2)

Verse 1:

C           F      G      C
 Outside, a-nother yellow moon,
              F           G
Has punched a hole in the night-time, yes.
C  F                 G          C
 I climb through the window and down to the street,
    F              G
I'm shining like a new dime.

Bridge 1:

F             G
 The downtown trains are full,
F                  G
 With all of those Brooklyn girls.
F                    G
 They try so hard to break out of their little worlds.

Verse 2:

C                    F             G                  C
 Well, you wave your hand and they scatter like crows,
          F                      G                  C
They have nothing that will ever capture your heart.
F             G                        C
 They're just thorns, without the rose;
   F          G
Be careful of them in the dark.

Bridge 2:

F         G           F                          G
 Oh, if I was the one, you chose to be your only one.
         F                     G
Oh baby, can't you hear me now? Can't you hear me now?

Chorus 1:

C                  F     G
 Will I see you to-night,
C              F      G
 On a downtown train?
C      F                        Dm  G
 Every night it's just the same;     you leave me lonely, now.

Verse 3:

C            F            G         C
 I know your window and I know it's late,
            F               G
I know your stairs and your doorway.
C                 F          G         C
 I walk down your street and past your gate,
               F            G
I stand by the light at the four-way.

Bridge 3:

F                       G
 You watch them as they fall,
   F                         G
Oh baby, they all have heart-attacks.
     F                                G
They stay at the carnival but they'll never win you back.

Chorus 2:

C                  F     G
 Will I see you to-night,
C              F      G
 On a downtown train?
      C            F                               Dm  G
Where every night, every night, it's just the same,     oh baby...

C                  F     G
 Will I see you to-night,
C              F      G
 On a downtown train?
C          F                      Dm       G
 All of my dreams, they fall like rain, oh baby, on a downtown train.

Interlude:

C  F, C  G, C  F, G (x2)

Chorus 3:

C                  F     G
 Will I see you to-night,
C              F      G
 On a downtown train?
      C            F                               Dm  G
Where every night, every night, it's just the same,     oh baby...

C                  F     G
 Will I see you to-night,
C              F      G
 On a downtown train?
C          F                      Dm       G
 All of my dreams, they fall like rain, oh baby, on a downtown train.

Coda:

C  F        G        C      F        G        C
   All on a downtown train, all on a downtown train.
F         G        C     F  G        C
 All on a downtown train, a downtown train.

(Repeat to Fade)
