If Love Was a Train

(B7) If love was a train
I think I would ride a slow one
(E7) One that would ride thru the night
Making (B7) every stop
If (F#7) love was a train (E7)
I would feel no pain and
I would never(B7) get off

If love was a train
I think I would ride me a long one
(E7) Hear me talking
I’m talking fifty boxcars (B7) long
(F#7) Aw what’s the use?
Most trains (E7) these days
Ain’t got no engine
Much less no (B7) caboose Woo! Woo!

(F#7) Look out here she comes
(E7) Look out there she goes (B7)

(B7) If love was a train
I’d throw my body on her tracks
If (E7) love was a train
I’d throw my body right down on (B7) her tracks
If (F#7) love was a train (E7)
I would feel no pain as she
Rolled right down (B7) my back

But love ain’t no train
More like a broncin’ bull
And the most you got’s 15 seconds
In the saddle
And even (F#7) if you manage to ride
You are (E7) all shaken up inside
And it’s gonna be a long time
Before you ride (B7) that bull again

If love was a train
But love ain’t a train…
