[intro]
C  Em  Am  G   2x


[verse]
C                Em
I hope this old train breaks down
Am                  G
Then I could take a walk around
C                    Em
And, see what there is to see
Am                  G
And time is just a melody
C                    
All the people in the street
Em
Walk as fast as their feet can take them
Am                    G
I just roam through town
C                            
And though my windows got a view
Em                  
The frame I'm looking through
Am                              G
Seems to have no concern for me now

So for now I


[chorus]
C      Em
I, need this here
Am           G
Old train to breakdown
C    Em
Oh, please just
Am             G
Let me please breakdown


[intermezzo]
C  Em  Am  G   2x


[verse]
C            Em
This engine screams out loud
Am              G
Sayin the beat gonna crawl westbound
C                Em
So I don't even make a sound
Am                                G
Cause it's gonna sting me when I leave this town
C
All the people in the street
Em
That I'll never get to meet
   Am                         G
If these tracks dont bend somehow
C
And I got no time
Em
That I got to get to
Am                    G
Where I don't need to be

So I


[chorus]
C  Em
I, need this here
Am           G
Old train to breakdown
C    Em
Oh, please just
Am             G
Let me please breakdown
C   Em
I, need this here
Am            G
Old train to breakdown
C    Em
Oh, please just
Am              G          C
Let me please breakdown


[bridge]
G       F        C
I wanna break on down
G     F          C
But I can't stop now
G       F        C     G  F
Let me break on down


[verse]
C
But you can't stop nothing
Em
If you got no control
Am
Of the thoughts in your mind
G
That you kept in, you know
C
You don't know nothing
Em
But you don't need to know
Am
The wisdoms in the trees
G
Not the glass windows
C
You can't stop wishing
Em
If you dont let go
Am
But things that you find
G
And you lose, and you know
C
You keep on rolling
Em
Put the moment on hold
Am
The frames too bright
G
So put the blinds down low


[chorus]
C   Em
I, need this here
Am           G
Old train to breakdown
C    Em
Oh, please just
Am             G
Let me please breakdown
C   Em
I, need this here
Am             G
Old train to breakdown
C    Em
Oh, please just
Am              G
Let me please breakdown
