I Remember the Railroad

written by Gene Clark

 

D              G     A
I see the travelers comin'
D                    G         A
I watch them rollin' down the line
D         G        A
I see the transits movin'
D              G  A      D    G   A
I remember the railroad line.

D          G       A
I see some smilin' faces
D                        G        A
Common place like they've peace of mind.
D       G         A
So many different places
D                  G     A       D     G   A
I remember there's more than one kind.

D                 Em    G       D
From a place that I can call my home
D                  Em     G       D
Down the road that I must call my own
G             A
I see no easy way
G                       A
(But) Today I've got to say
G                    A              D    G  A
I don't mind seeing what I'm being shown
D            G          A
So I see the jet planes flying
D            G      A
I watch them out of sight
D         G        A
I keep on what I'm tryin'
D            G        A        D     G  A
Hoping that time will treat me right
D              Em  A     D
I remember the railroad line.
