                49 TONS (Fred Eaglesmith)

G''' F''' 

              G
If there were seventeen cars out in my back yard, 

    F
The boys in blue were calling my name,

G
Semi-automatics up on the rooftop,

F
They just wanted to talk to me,

    G
I'd tell them what they wanted to hear, 

    F
The only thing that I knew:

G
Forty-nine tons of diesel locomotive

F
Couldn't drag me back to you.


Everywhere you go, there's a train wreck, baby,
Everywhere you go, there's a runaway train,
Breaking my heart like a bottleneck, baby,
Sliding up and down and pulling its strings.
Everywhere you go, everybody knows,
You're looking for someone to do.
Forty-nine tons of diesel locomotive
Couldn't drag me back to you.


If I was a brakeman, if I was a switchman,
If I was an engineer,
I'd take that train on down the line
And clear on out of here.
If I was the man swinging the lantern,
I'd swing it 'til it was blue.
Forty-nine tons of diesel locomotive
Couldn't drag me back to you.
