DOWNTOWN TRAIN     TOM WAITS

(transcripted by janta)

intro: :| D | G - A |:

| D |      | G - A |   | D |
Outside another yellow moon

              | G - A |             | D |  
Has punched a hole in the nighttime, yes

                    | G - A |              | D |  
I climb through the window and down to the street

    | G - A |       
I'm shining like a new dime

| G |        | A7 |          | G |             | A7 |
The downtown trains are full with all of those Brooklyn girls

| G |               | A7 |
They try so hard to break out of their little worlds


(same as above:)

Well you wave your hand and they scatter like crows
They have nothing that will ever capture your heart
They're just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark
Oh, if I was the one you chose to be your only one
Oh baby can't you hear me now, can't you hear me now

   | D |            | G - A | D |          | G - A |
   Will I see you tonight    on a downtown train

   | D |      | G | G / F# - em |  | A7 |
   Every night it's just the same, you leave me lonely now

(same as above:)

I know your window and I know it's late
I know your stairs and your doorway
I walk down your street and past your gate
I stand by the light at the four-way
You watch them as they fall, oh baby, they all have heart attacks
They stay at the carnival, but they'll never win you back

   Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
   Where every night, every night it's just the same, oh baby 
   Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
   All of my dreams they fall like rain, oh baby on a downtown train

Solo: | D - G | D - A7 | D - G | A7 |
      | D - G | D - A7 | D - G | A7 | A7 |

   Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
   Where every night, every night it's just the same, oh baby 
   Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
   All of my dreams just fall like rain, all on a downtown train

(repeat intro theme here:)

All on a downtown train, all on a downtown train
All on a downtown train, a downtown train
