I wish to submit one of my songs that has done very well on country
music radio charts across Australia. The song╩has just been re-recorded in
England by another artist " Johnny Duncan " and released on Rollcoaster
Records. I have had many new pereformers ask me about the song and could
I teach them the words and chord structure, it would be a lot easier if
they could just go to a web site. If you have any questions my direct
email address is firstname.lastname@example.org If you are interested, I do
have other songs that have been Hits on the country charts in Australia
that I can email you. Kind Regards Dwayne Elix.

A//// //// C//// //// G//// ////
NC My Baby [C]left me for someone [G] new
And now she's [D] gone, I don't know what to [G] do.
She lives by the [C] station in a railroad [G] shack
With an engine [D] driver and she won't come [G] back.
[C]We had a [D] fine home [G] up on railroad hill
And [C] all the things I bought her, well [G] their all up here [D] still.
[C]But my baby [D] left me, [G] gone so far from here
[C]She didn't take the train, she [D] took the engin ÷ [G]-neer.
She packed her [C] suitcase, couldn't wait to [G] go
Left the ring I [D] gave her and a chuck of [G] coal.
She didn't make no [C] trouble, she walked out quie÷[G]-tly
and all she left be-[D]-hind her was loneliness and [G] me.
[C]My baby [D] left me, now [G] all I do is cry
She [C] didn't give me no reason, she [G] didn't tell me [D] why
I [C] wish she was [D] in my arms sweet [G] talking in my ear
My [C] baby didn't take the train, she [D] took the engin ÷ [G]-neer.
Now every night I [C] lie here trying to get some [G] sleep
Counting railway [D] carriages instead of counting [G] sheep.
And even when IÔm [C] dreaming it's engineers and [G] trains
Come to get my [D] baby, it's driving me in-[G]-sane.
Now [C] when a freight rolls [D] down the track,
it [G] chills me to the bone.
I can't [C] stand to see a steaming kettle
or [G] hear a whistle [D] blow.
[C]Cause my baby [D] left me, [G] gone so far from here
[C]She didn't take the train, she [D] took the engin ÷ [G]-neer
[C]My baby didn't take the train, she [D] took the engin ÷ [G]-neer.
