Freight Train Ukulele Chords

Well I [Am]just came down the Chippewa
I had a [F]station wagon and a hundred dollars
I was [G]thinkin’ ‘bout the girl I’d lost
The [Am]year before [Am]

Well I [Am]hadn’t seen her for some time
[F]I thought that I might go on by
When your [G]memory came floodin’ in
And [Am]closed that door [Am]

Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I was a [F]diesel locomotive
I’d come [G]whistlin’ down your track
And [Am]crashin’ in your door
Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I didn’t [F]have a heart
And you’d need a [G]shovel full of coal
[Am]Just to get me started
Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I was a [E7]freight [E7]train

[E7] [E7] [E7] [E7]

[Am]Every time I talk to you, well I [F]hear your jealous lies
I feel like [G]I’ve been left abandoned
On some [Am]old railway sidin’
And [Am]every time I hear your voice, my [F]water just gets cold
My [G]stoker will not stoke, and my [Am]boiler will not boil

Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I was a [F]diesel locomotive
I’d come [G]whistlin’ down your track
And [Am]crashin’ in your door
Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I didn’t [F]have a heart
And you’d need a [G]shovel full of coal
[Am]Just to get me started
Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I was a [E7]freight [E7]train

[E7] [E7] [E7] [E7]

[Am]Every time I fell behind and I [F]could not get ahead
I wish some[G]one would pull a lever
And give [Am]me a little sand
And [Am]every time I slipped behind, hey [F]even further back
I wish some [G]switch man would come out of the fog
And [Am]change my track

Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I was a [F]diesel locomotive
I’d come [G]whistlin’ down your track
And [Am]crashin’ in your door
Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I didn’t [F]have a heart
And you’d need a [G]shovel full of coal
[Am]Just to get me started
Wish I was a [Am]freight train baby
Wish I was a [E7]freight [E7]train

[E7] [E7] [E7] [E7]
