This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

Dadd9  A4  G6/B
D2           A4            Em  Gmaj9/B  Gadd9
   I found a picture of you,   oh
   It hijacked my world that night
   To a place in the past we've been cast out of
   Oh, Now we're back in the fight

Em                   A
   We're back on the train, hey
   Oh, Back On The Chain Gang         D2  A

   A circumstance beyond our control, oh
   The phone, the TV and the news of the world
   Got in the house like a pigeon from hell, oh
   Threw sand in our eyes and descended like flies

   Put us back on the train, hey
   Oh
   Back on the chain gang

Dm     A7
   The powers that be
   That force us to live like we do
   Bring me to my knees
   When I see what they've done to you

Dm  D2 Dm     A+ A

   But I'll die as I stand here today
   Knowing that deep in my heart
   They'll fall to ruin one day
   For making us part

E2           B4            A2  B4
   I found a picture of you,   oh
   Those were the happiest days of my life
   Like a break in the battle was your part, oh
   In the wretched life of a lonely heart

F#m                      B4
   Now we're back on the train, hey
   Oh, back on the chain gang         E2  B4
