Train To Birmingham.
John Hiatt.
Album: Dirty Jeans And Mudslide Hymns.

Intro: G D Am C G D C
                
G                        D               Am              C
I've been riding on this train, drinking whiskey for the pain,
     G                D         C         G          D           
Just another good old boy going home, and every town I see, 
         Am     G       C
Seems to take a part of me,
         G                  D        C
That's a price that you pay when you roam.

(Chorus)
      Am          Em7            F   Am7    D       
And I cry, when I have to, and I lie when I can, 
      G     B7     Em7 C
But I die a little slower, 
       G     D         G
On the train to Birmingham.

      G                D            Am          C        
I got holes in both my shoes, and a guitar full of blues, 
  G              D         C
A one-way ticket for a remedy,
         G                 D               Am                C
It's the same old lonesome song, I've been singing all night long.
    G              D           C
Hey porter, are we out of Tennessee?

(Chorus)
      Am          Em7            F   Am7    D       
And I cry, when I have to, and I lie when I can, 
      G     B7     Em7 C
But I die a little slower, 
       G     D         G
On the train to Birmingham.

Break: G D Am7 C G D C G D C G D G C D

      G                D         Am7            C     
Every year I ride this train, to Alabama in the rain, 
       G                 D             C
When I get that lonesome feeling in my bones,
            G             D        
But I never get to Birmingham, 
       Am                      C
Ah but getting there is not the plan,
    G               D             C
No, I just like the feel of going home.

(Chorus)
      Am          Em7            F   Am7    D       
And I cry, when I have to, and I lie when I can, 
      G     B7     Em7 C
But I die a little slower, 
       G     D         G
On the train to Birmingham, 
       B7           Em7   C
Well I die a little slower, 
       G     D         G
On the train to Birmingham,
