Lyrics
I hear a train whistle blowing and it's in key with my song

Bm E A
all the way on the wrong side of Reno where my toughest friends are from

A E
every broken bone and every blue black eye in the stories of a__ beatings

Bm E Dadd9 E
that you've earned you told me about how more than half were deserved oh no

A E
something sank into that bleeding skull a certain kind of wisdom

Bm E Dadd9 E
and a humble soul it keeps me searching no matter how many miles left until

D E A
we get back home you've been quite a traveling companion I hate to see you go

A - Bm - E - A
(harmonica solo)

A Bm E A
now the world we're living in is Golden gilded with every lie we lived through

Bm E A
back from the war early Christmas morning not even a ghost could keep him sober for you

A E
every broken bone and every blue black eye in the stories of a__ beatings

Bm E Dadd9 E
that you returned you told me about how more than half were deserved oh no

A E
something sank into that bleeding skull a certain kind of wisdom

Bm E Dadd9 E
and a humble soul it keeps me searching no matter how many miles left until

D E A
we get back home you've been quite a traveling companion I hate to see you go
