Electric Trains (Difford/Tilbrook)
INTRO:  Cm F Cm F



           Cm                F                Cm            F

When I was crowned a mummy's boy by friends I didn't like

         Cm               F              Cm             F

I made a million trips to school upon my father's bike

          Bb              Cm                 Eb             Dm Cm

I used to sit between his legs, perched on a piece of wood

           Bb        Cm           Eb      Dm  Cm   G Cm

If it ever rained on us, I'd slip beneath his hood

                          F  Ab F

And at home the radio was on





REFRAIN:

========

Bb         Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb             Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb

From Julie Andrews        to Jerry Garcia

             G        Cm   Ab F Bb

Life was all fun and games

             Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb                 Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb

I was out of my    head      and underneath my    bed

              G         Cm   Ab

Playing with electric trains





            Cm         F

At home the stereo was on

            Cm          F

My head was filled with rock

           Cm             F

I played a willow cricket bat guitar

    Cm               F

And soloed round the clock

   Cm                 F

My records stacked up in a pile

   Cm              Ab

Collected from the charts

           F   Bb

And Top of the Pops





REFRAIN





BRIDGE:

=======

G

Kneeling with torchlight



Shining before me

C

In my bed my eyeballs stuck in readers wives

Eb

Pubic hairs proudly counted

F

Everyday manhood took me slowly

                       Bb

Out into the milky way





ADLIB:  Bb Ab/Bb Eb/Bb (3x)

        Bb



             Cm                  F

I chased the girls and made them cry

             Cm           F

My hair grew down my back

            Cm            F

The passing of my teenage years

               Cm          F

Was spent down in the sack

         Bb                  Cm

I played guitar and formed a band

           Eb             Dm Cm

I puked up all night long

          Bb              Cm

As people came to sit and stare

              Eb      Dm Cm    G Cm

While I raced through my songs

                             F

The sound of music passed me by

     Ab            F   Bb

Just like the Grateful Dead



REFRAIN
