Hell Miss This Train

	  		


Intro: Em 


He started in the morning, arrived just in time 
         D                                              Em 
Met some friends at the station, for to ride the narrow line 

Took a seat in the diner, made small talk with them all 
       D                                               Em 
Took a drink from the waiter, heard the last conductor call 


   G 
He seen the long dress of a woman on his right 
        D                               Em 
She was reading from the bible, she was basking in the light 

For a moment he thought he'd hear the words she couldn't keep inside 
             D                                              Em 
He looked in vain all around him, but there was no place to hide 


Chorus: 
                Am 
Gotta miss this train 
                                             Em 
Running on something behind, he'll miss this train 
                                     D 
Running out of time, he'll miss this train 
                                       Em     B  Em 
Walking down the line, he'll miss this train 



She said, "All my friends are millionaires", and her lips were small and thin 
        D                                              Em 
And she held him with these words as her eyes began to spin 

"My lover is an angel, each day we give our praise 
       D                                             Em 
To the glory of his goodness and the richness of our days" 


     G 
"But you will never know him, unless you ride this train 
     D                                    Em 
That seeks the pure and righteous for the glory of his name" 

And with this she clasped an amulet that hung above her breast 
        D                                        Em 
And she felt a tiny glory as the train continued west 


Chorus: 
                Am 
Gotta miss this train 
                                             Em 
Running on something behind, he'll miss this train 
                                     D 
Running out of time, he'll miss this train 
                                       Em     B  Em 
Walking down the line, he'll miss this train 



He became distracted, to the window he turned his eyes 
       D                                                  Em 
To the desert all around him and the blue that filled its skies 

Cactus with its arms arose to pull him away 
           D                                              Em 
There were stones that shine like jewels, flying birds of prey 


G 
Nothing ever called to him as the sun was burning bright 
    D                             Em 
And all the desert creatures were hiding from the light 

And the woman safely sleeping, with her book she'd made a nest 
       D                                                      Em 
And he knew he'd have to leave there or his heart would never rest 


Chorus: 
                Am 
Gotta miss this train 
                                             Em 
Running on something behind, he'll miss this train 
                                     D 
Running out of time, he'll miss this train 
                                       Em     B  Em 
Walking down the line, he'll miss this train 



He jumped out the window, the sun was burning red 
    D                                          Em 
And all he saw was desert and the bones of its dead 

He reached out to touch them and to lift them from the sand 
     D                                           Em 
They looked like angels, and he held them in his hand 


       G 
All at once he tried to board again, barbed wire cut his feet 
    D                                  Em 
But all he saw was empty track and the rising of the heat 

So he ran for a hundred miles until he came to a mountain town 
             D                                           Em 
Where he was told by a conductor that he best just turn around 


Chorus: 
                Am 
Gotta miss this train 
                                             Em 
Running on something behind, he'll miss this train 
                                     D 
Running out of time, he'll miss this train 
                                            Em     B  Em 
Many walking down the line, he'll miss this train 


OUTRO:      (## fade to end ##) 
       Am    Em    D    Em B Em  Am    Em    D    Em B Em  Am    Em    D
