Intro: Am D X2 

verse 1: 
Am            D   Am          D               Gmaj7   
  The distant echo of faraway voices boarding faraway trains  
Am             D      Am                  D                      Gmaj7   
  To take them home to the ones that they love and who love them forever 
Am                D     Am        D                  Gmaj7    
The glazed, dirty steps repeat my own and reflect my thoughts 
Am         D         Am        D           
Cold and uninviting, partially naked 
           G                       Bm                C                 D          
Except for toffee wrapers and this morning's papers, Mr. Jones got run down 
G                              Bm                     C                D 
Headlines of death and sorrow, they tell of tomorrow, madmen on the rampage 
        G                           Bm                 C  D 
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh 

Break: Am D X2 

verse 2: 
Am             D     Am                D     Gmaj7    
  I fumble for change and pull out the Queen smiling, beguiling 
Am             D    Am              D    Gmaj7   
  I put in the money and pull out a plum behind me 
Am                D      Am              D       Gmaj7   
  Whispers in the shadows, gruff blazing voices, hate in waiting 
Am             D    Am                 D 
  Hey boy they shout, have you got any money 
           G                         Bm                      C                 D 
And I said I've a little money and a take away curry, I'm on my way home to my wife 
          G                          Bm                       C                         D 
She'll be lining up the cutlery, you know she's expecting me, polishing the glasses and pulling out the cork 
        G                           Bm                 C  D 
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh 

Break: Am D X2 

verse 3: 
Am               D   Am           D                 Gmaj7    
  I first felt a fist, and then a kick, I could now smell their breath 
Am              D   Am            D                   Gmaj7   
  They smelt of pubs and Wormwood Scrubs and too many right wing meetings 
Am            D         Am                 D                     Gmaj7   
My life swam around me, it took a look and drowned me in its own existence 
Am                 D        Am                     D 
The smell of brown leather, it blended in with the weather 
             G                              Bm                              C                    D 
It filled my eyes, ears, nose and mouth, it blocked all my senses, couldn't see, hear, speak any longer 
        G                           Bm                 C  D 
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh 
             G                           Bm                 C  D 
I said I was down in the tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh 

Drum Break and train noise 

G                            Bm                           C                         D  
The last thing that I saw as I lay there on the floor was Jesus saves painted by an atheist nutter 
      G                        Bm               C                   D 
And a British Rail poster read have an awayday, a cheap holiday, oh do it today  
  G                           Bm                            C                      D 
I glanced back on my life and thought about my wife  'cause they took the keys and she'll think it's me 
        G                              Bm         C                         D 
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight, the wine will be flat and the curry's gone cold 
    G                           Bm                 C  D 
I'm down in the tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh 
                 G                         Bm                 C  D 
Don't want to go down in a tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh 
                 G                         Bm                 C  D 
Don't want to go down in a tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh 
                 G                         Bm                 C  D 
Don't want to go down in a tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh 
                 G                         Bm                 C  D 
Don't want to go down in a tube station at midnight, oh oh oh oh oh
