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

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
