                SPIKE DRIVIN' MAN
CHRIS KNIGHT
TRAILER TAPES


[][D]
I musta been born

With steel in my hand
               [A]
Probably gonna die
                [D]
A Spike Drivin' Man

[D]
I just lay the rail

I don't drive a train
                      [A]
But if it jumps the track
                   [D]  
I'm gonna hear my name

[D]
Train master says

This train better roll
                    [A]
Gotta pull the big boss's
        [D]
cars of coal

[D]
So I work all night

In the pouring rain
                 [A]
I hate the train master
                 [D]
And I hate his train

[G]
Trains roll on and on 
      [D]
Don't never turn me lose
  [Em]
I toss and turn all night long
        [Cadd9] [G]      [D]
Got the Spike Drivin Blues

[D]
On my way home

Train blocks the road
               [A]
Always make me wait
            [D]
Make supper cold

[D]
Then me and my wife

Go to sleep in our bed
                [A]
'Till the high ball comes
              [D]
And wakes the dead

Repeat Chorus


Bridge


[D]
Used to ride the caboose

Used to run the brake
                  [A]
'Till the bossman said
               [D]
that job aint' safe

[D]
Now I'm back on the rail

A hammer in my hand
                 [A]
I know I'm gonna die
              [D]
A Spike Drivin' Man


Repeat Chorus


[D]
Spike Drivin' Blues

Drive a man insane
                 [A]
I hate the train master 
               [D]
And I hate his train

**NOTE** Chris periodically plays a hammer-on with his middle finger on the [D] and [A] strings 
at the 3rd fret - Listen to the recording, it's pretty easy to figure out.

Thanks
