Runaway Train - Soul Asylum

Intro: C

C
Call you up in the middle of the night
Em/B
Like a fire fly without a light
Am
You were there like a blowtorch burnin'
G
I was a key that could use a little turnin'
C
So I'm tired and I couldn't even sleep
Em/B
So many secrets I couldn't keep
Am
Promised myself I wouldn't weep
G
One more promise I couldn't keep

F                G
Seems no one can help me now
        C                   Am
And I'm in too deep there's no way out
F                Em           G
This time I have really let myself astray

Chorus:
C
Runaway train never going back
Em/B
Wrong way on a one way track
Am
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
G
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Verse 2:  Follows same pattern as above

Can you help me remember how to smile
Make it somehow all seem worthwile
How on earth did I get so jaded
Life's mystery seems so faded
I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one else knows
Here I am just drowning in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

Everything seems cut and dry
Day and night Earth and sky
Somehow I just don't believe it

Chorus:
Runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Solo:

Got a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughing at the rain
Little out of touch little insane
It's just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there
Runaway train never going back
Runaway train tearing up the track
Runaway train burning in my veins
Runaway but it always seems the same.

Repeat
C-Em/B-Am-G  and fade
