Matthew Ryan
'Railroaded' is the 9th song from Matthew Ryan's album "May Day", released in 1997. It's 
in standard tuning with a capo on the 3rd fret.


Intro: C, G, Am, F (x2)


Verse 1:
       C
Well I smoked my throat out last night
            G
Hoping you'd call or just stop by
       Am
Now I'm wheezing like the Oakland sky
                F
Feeling like the rusted tracks
       C                               G
And forgotten dreams of the old train lines


Chorus:
        F
It's a perpetual stone in my shoe
              C         G              Am
One that I'll always be trying to shake loose
   F                     C           Am
An ache in my chest and a thorn in my side
           F
More than a scratch beneath my skin
            C           G              Am
Somewhere between the beginning and the end
        F                C
I don't feel a lot lately
        F                C
I don't feel whole lately
        F                C
I don't feel much lately
                Am
But that's how I hide
            G
That's how I hide


Interlude: C, G, Am, F


Verse 2:
            C
You wrote it down not

To draw attention to yourself
           G
You lit the pilot just to blow it out
         Am
Here the conversation's always too loud
             F               C
And we're as pathetic as the jumper
                   G
Who listens to the crowd


Bridge:
         F
To say I miss you wouldn't be enough
           C          G                    Am
I feel like Tom Waits singing "Diamonds and Rust"
          F              C                      G
And I'm as pathetic as a junkie who know what he does


Chorus:
       F
It's a perpetual stone in my shoe
             C         G               Am
One that I'll always be trying to shake loose
   F                     C           Am
An ache in my chest and a thorn in my pride
             F
More than a scratch beneath my skin
           C            G              Am
Somewhere between the beginning and the end
        F                C
I don't feel a lot lately
        F                C
I don't feel whole lately
        F                C
I don't feel much lately
               Am
Now that's how I hide
            G
That's how I hide


Outro: C, G, Am, F (x2)


End on C.
