Wrote It Down & Burned It. 
John Hiatt.
Album: Walk On.


Em                                         G
There's a dead girl's body by the railroad track,
      Bm7           Em
She's waiting for a train
Em                             G             Bm7           Em
Jimmy left town like a fade to black, in his Camero in the rain, 
    C                            D                    Em
She wrote it down and burned it, Jimmy loves who knows who,
Em                              G        Bm7                Em
Well he wasn't from around this town and mister neither are you. 


Em                                G             Bm7          Em
She was listening into that Monon line, For the Wabash Cannonball,
Em                                             G                                                                       
Put your head on the rail and you can hear her whine,
     Bm7          Em
Just like a caterwaul. 

    C                                            D              Em                                                                       
She wrote it down and burned it, she clutched it flaming to her chest
Em                                       G                                                               
It said Jimmy loves cars and Jimmy loves trains,
       Bm7                   Em
Ah but Jimmy, Jimmy loves me best. 


Em                                          G
There's a dead girl's body, by the railroad track,
Bm7           Em
Waiting for a train, 
Em                                G            Bm7            Em
Well I guess Jimmy never did come back, in his Camero in the rain, 

    C                                     D          Em                                                             
She wrote it down and burned it, Yeah the only way I know,
Em                                           G                                                                    
You could still read some words in the ashes there,
          D                  Em       C                      
She could not, not watch him go,  she wrote it down and burned it. 


Em(Hold)
