M.T.A. Ukulele Chords

[G]Now let me tell you a story about a [C]man named Charlie
On this [G]tragic & fateful [D7]day
He put [G]10 cents into his pocket, kissed his [C]wife and family
Went to [G]ride on the [D7]M.T.[G]A.

[G]But did he ever return? No, he [C]never returned,
And his [G]fate is still un[D7]learned
He may [G]ride forever beneath the [C]streets of Boston
He’s the [G]man who [D7]never re[G]turned

[G]Charlie handed in his dime at the [C]Kendall Square Station
And he [G]changed for Jamaica [D7]Plain
When he [G]got there the conductor told him “[C]One more nickel”
Charlie [G]couldn’t get [D7]off that [G]train

[G]But did he ever return? No, he [C]never returned,
And his [G]fate is still un[D7]learned
He may [G]ride forever beneath the [C]streets of Boston
He’s the [G]man who [D7]never re[G]turned

Now [G]all night long Charlie [C]rides through the station
Saying, “[G]What will become of [D7]me?
How can [G]I afford to see my [C]sister in Chelsea
Or my [G]cousin in [D7]Roxbu[G]ry?”

[G]But did he ever return? No, he [C]never returned,
And his [G]fate is still un[D7]learned
He may [G]ride forever beneath the [C]streets of Boston
He’s the [G]man who [D7]never re[G]turned

[G]Charlie’s wife goes down to [C]Scollay Square Station
Every [G]day at a quarter past [D7]two
And through the [G]open window she hands [C]Charlie a sandwich
As the [G]train comes [D7]rumbling [G]through

[G]But did he ever return? No, he [C]never returned,
And his [G]fate is still un[D7]learned
He may [G]ride forever beneath the [C]streets of Boston
He’s the [G]man who [D7]never re[G]turned

[G]Now you citizens of Boston, don’t you [C]think it is a scandal
That the [G]people have to pay and [D7]pay
Fight the [G]fare increase, vote for [C]George O’Brien
And get [G]Charlie off the [D7]M.T.[G]A.!

[G]But did he ever return? No, he [C]never returned,
And his [G]fate is still un[D7]learned
He may [G]ride forever beneath the [C]streets of Boston
He’s the [G]man who [D7]never re[G]turned
He’s the [G]man who [D7]never re[G]turned
