[Intro]
D       D       D       Dadd2
D       D       D       Dadd2
 
[Verse 1]
     D
That Santa Fe still blows the whistle
       Bm
But it doesn’t stop in town much anymore
     G                                                       D    A
It’s been so long I can’t remember what it ever stopped here for
 
  D
I used to stand out by the crossing
    Bm
And watch other people get on
G                                              D     A
Then I’d wait there alone until that train was gone
 
[Chorus 1]
        G   D            A      D
I think all trains carry secrets
     G         D         A
That only the passengers know
    G      D          A         Bm
I’d get on board if I could
         G                    A
But I’ve run out of places to go
Em D/F# G
Chasing trains that won’t take me home
 
[Instrumental]
G       D       A       D
G       D       A       A
G       D       A       Bm
G       A       D       D
 
[Verse 2]
     D
I’ve given good years to the work life
     Bm
I’ve given my children a chance
  G                                                 D   A
I try my best but someday I know it’s all out of my hands
 
        D
You can only live so long on daydreams
        Bm
You can only go so far on faith
    G                                                   D    A
But sometimes when I close my eyes I can still see that train
 
[Chorus 2]
        G   D            A      D
I think all trains carry secrets
     G         D         A
That only the passengers know
    G      D          A         Bm
I’d get on board if I could
      G                    A
But I gave up a long time ago
Em D/F# G
Chasing trains that won’t take me home
 
[Instrumental]
G       D       A       D
G       D       A       A
G       D       A       Bm
G       A       D       D
 
[Bridge]
Bm    A       Gmaj7
Every now and then
Bm        A      G
I still remember when
 
[Verse 3]
     D
This morning I walked to the station
    Bm
And stood all alone by the tracks
G                                                        D    A
Just like I’d done before, except this time my bags were packed
 
  D
I must have stood there for hours
        Bm
But the train never came in
     G                                          D     A
So I left my suitcase behind, and I’m not going back again
 
[Chorus 3]
        G   D            A      D
I think all trains carry secrets
     G         D         A
That only the passengers know
    G      D          A         Bm
I’d get on board if I could
      G                           A
But I think that it's time to let go
Em D/F# G
Chasing trains
Em D/F# G
Chasing trains
Em D/F# G
Chasing trains that won't take me home
