                ...DOWNTOWN TRAIN... by Tom Waits
--------------------.............

*from 'Rain Dogs' (1985)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Eb)


Intro:

D, G  A (x2)

Verse 1:

D           G      A      D
 Outside, a-nother yellow moon,
              G           A
Has punched a hole in the night-time, yes.
D  G                 A          D
 I climb through the window and down to the street,
    G              A
I'm shining like a new dime.

Bridge 1:

G             A
 The downtown trains are full,
G                  A
 With all of those Brooklyn girls.
G                    A
 They try so hard to break out of their little worlds.

Verse 2:

D                    G             A                  D
 Well, you wave your hand and they scatter like crows,
          G                      A                  D
They have nothing that will ever capture your heart.
G             A                        D
 They're just thorns, without the rose;
   G          A
Be careful of them in the dark.

Bridge 2:

G         A           G                          A
 Oh, if I was the one, you chose to be your only one.
         G                     A
Oh baby, can't you hear me now? Can't you hear me now?

Chorus 1:

D                  G     A
 Will I see you to-night,
D              G      A
 On a downtown train?
D      G                        Em  A
 Every night it's just the same;     you leave me lonely, now.

Verse 3:

D            G            A         D
 I know your window and I know it's late,
            G               A
I know your stairs and your doorway.
D                 G          A         D
 I walk down your street and past your gate,
               G            A
I stand by the light at the four-way.

Bridge 3:

G                       A
 You watch them as they fall,
   G                         A
Oh baby, they all have heart-attacks.
     G                                A
They stay at the carnival but they'll never win you back.

Chorus 2:

D                  G     A
 Will I see you to-night,
D              G      A
 On a downtown train?
      D            G                               Em  A
Where every night, every night, it's just the same,     oh baby...

D                  G     A
 Will I see you to-night,
D              G      A
 On a downtown train?
D          G                      Em       A
 All of my dreams, they fall like rain, oh baby, on a downtown train.

Interlude:

D  G, D  A, D  G, A (x2)

Chorus 3:

D                  G     A
 Will I see you to-night,
D              G      A
 On a downtown train?
      D            G                               Em  A
Where every night, every night, it's just the same,     oh baby...

D                  G     A
 Will I see you to-night,
D              G      A
 On a downtown train?
D          G                      Em       A
 All of my dreams, they fall like rain, oh baby, on a downtown train.

Coda:

D  G        A        D      G        A        D
   All on a downtown train, all on a downtown train.
G         A        D     G  A        D
 All on a downtown train, a downtown train.

(Repeat to Fade)
