Railroad Man
Words and Music by Jim Patton and Barry McGuire
on Seeds by Barry McGuire
Copyright 1973

G                             C                D
I was running down the track, tract in my hand
G                          A7          D7
Want to give my tract to a railroad man
G                       C             D
Railroad man running as fast as he can
G                                      C          D      G
For he don't want to see the tract I'm holding in my hand
           D                           C              Am
You know I sat down on the corner and I started to cry
D                C             G
Railroad man is a fixing to die
           D                  C                Am
I couldn't help myself, I just broke down and cried
D              C            Em
Day I heard my railroad man died
           D          G
Yes he died, railroad man

                       C                   D
Only one time running, his train done broke
G                          A7            D7
Blew up all his money on a mystical smoke
     G                    C             D
On a one way trip shooting down the line
G                              C          D       G
Trying so hard to find just a little peace of mind
           D                           C              Am
You know I sat down on the corner and I started to cry
D                C             G
Railroad man is a fixing to die
           D                  C                Am
I couldn't help myself, I just broke down and cried
D              C            Em
Day I heard my railroad man died
           D          G
Yes he died, railroad man

                                 C                   D
Well you say you are a linesman, say you're all alone
G                         A7             D7
Say you got no reason for ever going home
     G                                  C                    D
Well if you hadn't lost your mind, gone deaf, dumb, and blind
                 G                            C        D    G
You'd know that Jesus has been calling for a long, long time
        D                        C                  Am
I don't want no more corners and I don't want to cry
  D                           C            G
I don't want to hear about the day you died
          D                               C                Em
Don't you know that you're my brother so take me by the hand
D                                 C             G
Walk along right by my side until you understand
          D                               C                Em
Don't you know that you're my brother so take me by the hand
D                                 C             Em
Walk along right by my side until you understand
              D                Em    C G
Oh take my hand, oh, oh railroad man
