additional lyrics:

When the train rolled up to the station, I looked her in the eye
When the train rolled up to the station, I looked her in the eye
Well, I was lonesome, I felt so lonesome
and I could not help but cry
All my love’s in vain

When the train left the station with two lights on behind
When the train left the station with two lights on behind
Well the blue light was my blues
and the red light was my mind
All my love’s in vain

Ohh ho ho ho Willie Mae
Ohh ho ho ho Willie Mae
Ohh ho ho ho Willie Mae
All my love’s in vain

Rolling Stones – Out Of Tears


Out of Tears
Rolling Stones

Intro:  E  D — 2x’s

Verse:
E
I can’t feel
D
Feel a thing
E
I can’t shout
D
I can’t scream
E
Breathe it out
D
Breathe it in
E
All this love
D
From within
Chorus:
A
I won’t cry when you say goodbye
G
I’m out of tears
A
I won’t die when you wave goodbye
G
I’m out of tears
E  D – 2x’s
Out of tears
Verse:
I won’t drink
I won’t eat
I can’t hear

I won’t speak
Let it out
Let it in
All this pain
From within
E
And I just can’t pour my heart out
D
To another living thing
E
I’m a whisper
I’m a shadow
D
But I’m standing up to sing
CHORUS:
I won’t cry when you say goodbye
I’m out of tears
I won’t die when you wave goodbye
I’m out of tears
I won’t cry, I swear my eyes are dry
I’m out of tears
I won’t cry, I’m going to tell you why
I’m out of tears
Out of tears
A
Out of tears
INSTRUMENTAL: SLIDE BAR SOLO
Verse:
Let it out
From within
Some you lose
Some you win
I can drift
I can dream
Til I float
Off your screen
And I just can’t pour my heart out
To another living thing
I’m a whisper
I’m a shadow
But I’m standing up to sing
Chorus

Blue Rodeo – 5 Days In May


Blue Rodeo – 5 Days In May

Key: Em

Intro:

Em  D  Am  C

Verse:
Em
They met in a hurricane
D
Standing in the shelter out of the rain
Am                         C
She tucked a note into his hand
Em
Later on they took his car
D
Drove on down where the beaches are
Am                       C
He wrote her name in the sand
G          F             C    D
Never even let go of her hand

Somehow they stayed that way
For those 5 days in May
Made all the stars around them shine
Funny how you can look in vain
Living on nerves and such sweet pain
The loneliness that cuts so fine
To find the face you’ve seen a thousand times

Chorus:
C
Sometimes the world begins
C
To set you up on your feet again
Bm                           D
It wipes the tears from your eyes
C
How will you ever know
C
The way that circumstances go
Bm                            D
Always going to hit you by surprise
Am
I know my past
G/B
You were there
C               Em7/C
In everything I’ve done
Em
You are the one

Looking back it’s hard to tell
Why they stood while others fell
Spend your life working it out
All I know is one cloudy day
They both just ran away
Rain on the windshield heading South
She loved the lines around his mouth

(Chorus)

Notes:
Use an alternating bass/strum pattern, except for last four lines of
chorus (from “I know my past…”) where the chords are finger-plucked
on strings 2 through 5 only.  Those chords are:
Am      X0221X
G/B     X2000X
C       X3201X
Em7/C   X3243X
