RUNAWAY TRAIN (Listen to midi)

 

  C                                                             

1.   Call you up in the middle of the night,

Em

      like a firefly without a light,

Am                                                                

    you were there like a blowtorch burning,

G

    I was a key that could use a little turning.

C                                                       

    So tired that I couldn't even sleep,

Em

     so many secrets I couldn't keep,                                            

Am

    promised myself I wouldn't weep,

G

    one more promise I couldn't keep.

         F                            G                        C                           Am   

    It seems no one can help me now, I'm in too deep there's no way out.

     F                       Em               G                - G7

    this time I have really led myself astray.

 

C      

    Runaway train never going back,

Em   

     runaway on a one way track,

Am

    seems like I should be getting somewhere,

G                                                                  

     somehow I'm neither here nor there.

 

   C                                                                     

2.    Can you help me remember how to smile,

Em

     make it somehow all seem worth while?

Am                                                      

      How on earth did I get so jaded?      

G

    Life's mystery seems so faded.

C                                                            

     I can go where no one else can go,

Em

      I know what no one else knows.

 

 

 

Am                                                         

     Here I am just drownin' in the rain,    

G

    with a ticket for a runaway train.

      F                    G                 C                    Am

     Everything is cut and dry, day and night, earth and sky

       F              - Em                     G            - G7                         

    Somehow I          just don't believe it.   

 

    + CHORUS   +  C - Em - Am - G      F - G - C - Am      F - Em - G

 

   C                                                           

3.     Bought a ticket for a runaway train,

Em

     like a madman laughin' at the rain,

Am                                                 

    a little out of touch, little insane,     

G

    it's just easier than dealing with the pain.        + CHORUS

 

 C                                                        

    Runaway train never comin' back,

Em

    runaway train tearin' up the track,

Am                                                                     

    runaway train burnin' in my veins,

G                                                                        - C - Em - Am - G - C

     runaway, but it always seems the same.
