C/G            E                Am    Am/G  F/C      
The whistle is blowing, and the train is  going

C/G                                      G          C
Just what's gonna happen next, well, I'm not one to say

C/G              E                    Am     Am/G   F/C
I'm sitting here yearning while those wheels keep turning

C/G              G                     C
"I'll be gone by tonight," she told me today

C/G                  E                Am    Am/G         F/C           
And next door to the cornstalk by the side of this sheet rock

C/G                 G                         C
I will wait for the morning like a dog in the moon

F/C        C
Blow, blow on
F/C        C
Blow, blow on

C/G               E               Am      Am/G       F/C
Oh the minutes go slow now, and I hope it don't snow now

C/G                   G                             C
'Cause it's quiet and still and that train's out of sight

C/G                  E        Am   Am/G   F/C
All we need is a fat storm to blow by the platform

C/G              G                          C
Oh dear me, that woman, that woman's always right

F/C        C
Blow, blow on
F/C        C
Blow, blow on

(I repeat chords:  C/G  E  Am  Am/G  F/C  C/G  G  C )

F/C        C
Blow, blow on
F/C        C
Blow, blow on

C/G            E                Am    Am/G   F/C
The whistle is blowing, and the train is   going

C/G                                      G              C
Just what's gonna happen next, well, I'm not the one to say
