Runaway Train - Elton John ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Features Eric Clapton. Capo 3rd fret. INTRO: Em Am C B7 Em VERSE 1: Em There's a hungry road I can only hope's Am Gonna eat me up inside C B7 There's a drifting spirit coming clean Am Em In the eye of a lifelong fire Em Tell Monday I'll be around next week Am I'm running ahead of my days C B7 In the shotgun chance that scattered us Am Em I've seen the error of my ways C B7 Em Oh oh oh, Oh oh oh VERSE 2: 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 Oh oh oh, oh oh oh CHORUS: G And I've poured out the pleasure and dealt with the pain D B7 Standing in a station waiting in the rain C G I'm starting to feel a little muscle again D G But love is lost like a runaway train G Oh I'm out of control and out of my hands D B7 I'm tearing like a demon through no man's land C G Trying to get a grip on my life again D G Nothing hits harder than a runaway train SOLO: (as for verses) Em Am C B7 Am Em Em Am C B7 Am Em C B7 Em CHORUS x2 OUTRO: G D B7 C G D G repeat to fade
