verse 1 
        D 
Well, I hopped aboard a southbound freight, 

and hid behind a packin' crate, 
                                   Em 
and settled back to catch me forty winks. 
       G                 A 
Got to thinkin' about my goodbye note, 
    G                  A 
and worryin' about the words I wrote, 
    G                   A7               D 
and wonderin' what that woman's goin' to think. 


verse 2 
D 
She'd a made a darn good wife, 

and had me workin' nine to five, 
                                          Em 
but thats what made this rambling feelin' grow. 
    G                  A 
And freezin' 'neath an old tin hat, 
      G             A              
ain't exactly where it's all at, 
         G              A7            D 
when the sun is shining bright in Mexico. 

G D So whine, you whistle, whine. A D Keepin' moving me on the further down that line. G D Whine, you whistle, whine. A A7 D There's a memory tryin' to catch up with my mind.
Interlude: G D G D verse 3 D Leavin' never hurt before, but something's right outside that door, Em and calls my name with every mile of track. G A This lonley feeling deep inside, G A is making it so hard to ride, G A7 D and now and then I'll catch me lookin' back.
G D So whine, you whistle, whine. A D Keepin' moving me on the further down that line. G D Whine, you whistle, whine. A A7 D There's a memory tryin' to catch up with my mind.
