Runaway Train

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the Album The One

Gm   Cm7   Dsus4   D   Gm

There's a hungry road I can only hope's
Gonna eat me up inside
               Dsus4                 D7
There's a drifting spirit coming clean
              Cm7                      Gm
In the eye of a lifelong fire

Tell Monday I'll be around next week
I'm running ahead of my days
          Dsus4                      D7
In the shotgun chance that scattered us
                    Cm7                        Gm
I've seen the error of my ways

Eb7    Dsus4  D              Gm
oh                oh

Well we've wrapped ourselves in golden crowns
Like sun gods spitting rain
Found a way home written on this map
Like red dye in my veins
In the hardest times that come around
The fear of losing grows
I've lost and seen the world shut down
It's a darkness no one knows

And I've poured out the pleasure and dealt with the pain
F                                   D
Standing in a station waiting in the rain
     Eb                                    Bb  
I'm starting to feel a little muscle again
                F                                   Bb
But love is lost like a runaway train

Oh I'm out of control and out of my hands
     F                                            D  
I'm tearing like a demon through no man's land
Eb                                          Bb 
Trying to get a grip on my life again
                    F                                        Bb
Nothing hits harder than a runaway train
