David Wiffen
As recorded by Cowboy Junkies


[G] Just came up
[Am] on the midnight special,
[C] hey how about [G] that?
My car broke down in [Am] Texas,
[C] she stopped dead in her [G] tracks.

[C] Just called to [Bm] tell you [Am] that I [G] need you.
[C] Just called to [Bm] tell you how I [Am] feel. [D]

I [G] feel like some [F] old engine
[C] that's lost my driving [G] wheel
I feel like some [F] old engine
[C] that's lost my driving [G] wheel

[G] They took my money on the
[Am] night train north,
[C] what a terrible [G] thing.
I gave my promise that I [Am] would
be there with you [C] by Saturday [G] night.

[C] I want to [Bm] tell you [Am] that I [G] need you.
[C] I need to [Bm] tell you how I [Am] feel. [D]

I [G] feel like some [F] old engine
[C] that's lost my driving [G] wheel
I feel like some [F] old engine
[C] that's lost my driving [G] wheel

[G] You can't say much in a
[Am] phone call babe,
[C] you know how it is. [G]
I have to tell you [Am] one short thing,
[C] oh won't you listen to [G] this.

[C] I want to [Bm] tell you [Am] that I [G] love you, baby.
[C] I want to [Bm] tell you just how I [Am] feel. [D]

I [G] feel like some [F] old engine
[C] that's lost my driving [G] wheel
I feel like some [F] old engine
[C] that's lost my driving [G] wheel

Feel like some [F] old engine
that's [C] lost my driving [G] wheel.
Some old [F] engine
that's [C] lost my driving [G] wheel.

I feel like some old [F] engine
that's [C] lost [NC] my driving wheel. [G]
