[Verse 1]
           D           F#m                A
I'm in the car, I just needed to clear my head
             D              F#m                A
She's in the house with the baby crying on the bed
               D               F#m                  A
She's got this thing where she puts up the walls so high
                               E
It doesn't matter how much you love
                               D
It doesn't matter how hard you try
         D            F#m                A
We got a place with a fence and a little grass
           D                           F#m                   A
I put this film on the windows, and it looks like chapel glass
             D                    F#m                       A
But when she turns, it's like the shadow of the cross don't cast
                            E
No blessing over our lonely life
                                 D
It's like waiting for a train to pass, and I don't know when it'll pass

[Verse 2]
        A                               E
But I remember when she used to set the room on fire
         F#m            D
With her eyes, swear to God
            A                                E
It's like a flood of grief and sorrow from a haunted life
         F#m           D             A
When she cries, like a train, it's a lot
            D         F#m                    A
I dropped a line to a flickering high school flame
            D            F#m                     A
We laughed about all the ways that our lives had changed
             D           F#m      A
She's up the road, about 35 miles north
                        E                            D
Got two little boys in school, just had a real bad divorce
And in a moment of weakness

[Chorus]
  A                             E
I told her if she ever needed a helping hand
        F#m            D
I would lend, swear to God
              A                                  E
It's like the part of me that's screaming not to jump gets lost
       F#m          D             A    E    F#m
In the sound of the train, it's a lot...........

[Coda]
       D    A
Trying hard...
       E    F#m
Not to care.....
         D
Swear to God

[Outro]
A    E    F#m    D    A    E    F#m    D
.........................................
A    E    F#m    D    A    E    F#m    D
.........................................
A    E    F#m    D    A    E    F#m    D
.........................................
A    E    F#m    D    A
