Verse
C Em Am G

C               Em
I hope this old train breaks down
Am                    G
And I could take a walk around
You see there's no time you see
Cause time is just melody
With all the people in the street
Walking fast as their feet can take them
I might just roll through town
And though my window's got a view
The frame I'm looking through
Seems to have no concern for miles
For now I
I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown

Well this engine screams out loud
Saying the P gonna crawl westbound
And I don't even make a sound cuz
Gonna sting me when I leave this town
All the people in the street
That I never get to meet
These tracks gonna bend somehow
And I got no time
That I got to get
To where I don't need to be, so I

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
Break on down
Intro C G F
I gotta break on down

(one strum on C and pause, then Am)
C
But you can't stop nothing
If you got no control
Am
Of the thoughts in your mind
That you kept and you know
C
That you don't know nothing
But you don't need to know
Am
The wisdom's in the trees
Not the glass window's

(Then back to normal)

You can't stop wishing
If you don't let go
Of the things that you find
And you lose and you know
You keep on rolling
Put the moment on hold
But the frames still bright
With the blinds down low

And I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me just breakdown       F      G

(then back to regular chords)

Oh, let me break on
