Capo: 2st fret

Harmonica Opening 
C When I was a little boy I used to lie in my bed 
and listen for the '9:0{G}9' 
It F never ran on Christmas or the C day that Jesus died 
but every other day it G ran on C time 
It C always made me lonesome      but it brought me comfort 
and what it did to me I can't ex{G}plain 
And F as I wonder through this C harsh and gentle world 
Oh every now and then I G wish I was a C train 
F Roll on roll on into the dark C night 
F Leavin' all my troubles be{G}hind 
F Carryin' my soul C far far away 
Oh every now and then 
I G wish I was a C train		Harmonica Break 
C I loaded trucks in Isa rode the dingo fences 
cursed the ganger on the western G line 
F Started throwin' punches in a C bar at Charters Towers 
They threw the book at me G I did my C time 
F Cause a train don't weep a C train don't feel 
F heartache C sadness and G pain 
And F when I die just C let my spirit ride  
on the boxcar of an G ever rollin' {C}train 
Chorus	Harmonica End
