Rail Yard Ghosts
Cm                                      G       
Blowin' smoke, blowin' smoke, Chasin' steel, chasin' steel
            Cm                                  G       
Sometimes freedom, sometimes freedom, we must steal for it to feel real
 Cm                             G
Waitin' on that low hum, roll slow
 Cm                                 G
Who would pay to see how smooth it rolls?

          Cm                           G
Breathe deep, breathe deep, Into the lungs, into the lungs
          Cm                                   G
Freedom tastes, freedom tastes, just like the sun your tongue
           Cm                       G
Songs are sung, but wars are never won
           Cm (once)                       G (once)
If we are one why can't we stare down the barrel of this gun

(Tempo Increases)

              Cm               G
And oh these walls, some are bricks and some are alcohol 
  Cm                         G
Some of them we can't even see at all
          Cm                   G
Some are hate, ignorance and rage
        Cm                                  G (once)
Either way we've locked ourselves up in our own f**king cage

G# / G / G# / G

       G#                     G                             
Play your roll, burn more coal, the whole train load full
                   G#                                    G
Gag and choke on stagnant smoke, the burning of ancient bones
                            G#                        G
Won't you let this monster roll across the prairies wide
  G#                                   G (once)
Iron, steel, and diesel dreams, These mountains steal my breath but not my life

(Tempo Decreases)

Cm / G / Cm / G

             Cm                              G      
Cold winds blow, cold winds blow, Pick your car and count the bolts
           Cm                             G
Kill the crops, Kill the crops, Dig the soul out of mountain tops
       Cm                                      G
Happiness is a cold cold gutter, air brakes scream and engines sputter
          Cm                                G
Sister, brother, tell me where did we get lost?
