D/G


Dsus2     D/F#     D/G
How long is this train son
   D/B        D/F#    D/G
I heard his fragile voice
  A                     D/F#                 D/G        
I didn’t want to listen but there really was no choice
              D              D/F#  D/G           D/B     D/F#   D/G
It seems like it goes on forever and I waited for so long
       A                               D/F#                           D/G                 Dsus2 
The old man’s breath came slow and smelled of whiskey in the dawn

        A                       Dsus2              D/B    D/F#     D/G
On a cold November morning in the gentle mist of rain
            Dsus2            A7Sus4                   D/B      D/F#     D/G   A (single not to...)
There’s just so many reasons that people wait to meet a train

D/B - D/F# - D/G

             Dsus2  D/F#    D/G                D/B          D/F#   D/G
And as I waited for my sister to come down the metal stairs
      A                      D/F#                    D/G        
He told me that his son had not been home in fifteen years
         Dsus2  D/F#         D/G           D/B    D/F#       D/G
And I barely seemed to notice the tears behind his face
             A                      D/F#                  D/G               Dsus2       
But his wishes were no strangers to the people in this place

Dsus2

       A                              Dsus2  D/A   D/B            D/F#         D/G
The old man stood there waiting for a young man dressed in blue
              C                    Bm7             Em         D/F#     A  Asus4
Then he handed him a neatly folded flag and said for you

                   Dsus2  D/F#    D/G            D/B     D/F#   D/G
He said your son he died a hero in the service of this flag
        A                      D/F#           D/G        
The old man took it gently put it in his paper bag
           Dsus2  D/F#   D/G              D/B       D/F#      D/G
Then I left him in the rain there but I’d still hear his voice
   A                     D/F#        D/G                       Dsus2
I try hard not to listen but there really is no choice

        A                       Dsus2              D/B    D/F#     D/G
On a cold November morning in the gentle mist of rain
            Dsus2            A7Sus4                   D/B      D/F#     D/G 
There’s just so many reasons that people wait to meet a train

D/G


Dsus2     D/F#   D/G  
How long is this train son
        D/B        D/F#     D/G
I can hear the pouring rain
       A                  D/F#               D/G                       D
I’m still reminded of him when I hear a passing train


I think this is quite accurate 

Enjoy :)
