I met a southbound woman on a northbound train

Am                      Bm                     Em7

She put me in trouble, she left me in pain

She came for the summer and left with the rain

 

(Intro Figure, once)

 

Verse 2:                                       

Oh--long gone woman, I guess my hand’s been played

I caught you with diamonds, oh I miss you in spades

Southbound woman trouble me again

 

(over figure twice):

I bet you know how to ride

With your wheels on the side

Why don’t you come on inside?

 

Bridge 1:   EMaj         G#m7                          C#m                             G#m

Cold hearted woman don’t you let me down

EMaj                           G#m7                          C#m                             G#m

Big hearted woman I won’t let you down

F#m                             C#m7                             F#m7                         A7/E

Southbound woman, I won’t give you tears

D7                                                                                    

Not in a thousand nights

 C#7                             F#m                             B7             

Not in a hundred years

 

(over figure twice):

Why don’t you uncouple your cars

In my freight train yards?

But don’t you bring them in hard

Bridge 1:

Cold hearted woman don’t you let me down

Big hearted woman I won’t let you down

Southbound woman, I won’t give you tears                                                                           

Not in a thousand nights

Not in a hundred years

 

(over figure):

I bet you know how to ride

With your wheels on the side

Why don’t you swallow your pride?

 

I met a southbound woman on a northbound train

She put me in trouble, she got me in pain

I need that kind of woman to trouble me again---oh

 

(over figure):

I bet you know how to ride

With your wheels on the side

Why don’t you come on inside?

If you know how to ride

 

Why don’t you uncouple your cars

In my freight train yards?

Why don’t you come on inside?

If you know how to ride

Oh south bound woman

Whoa, southbound woman

Ah, southbound woman

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, woman

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, woman

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, woman

Oh south bound woman
