Riding That Midnight Train (A)

(Ralph Stanley)

No matter what I say or do
       IV(D) I(A)
You're never satisfied
I've tried and tried so many times
                V(E)     I(A)
I'm leaving you now, goodbye

    I'm riding on that midnight train
    My head's a-hanging low
    These awful blues will follow me
    Wherever I may go

Oh why on earth was I ever born
I'll never understand
To fall in love with a woman like you
In love with another man


You broke a heart that trusted you
Why wasn't it made of stone
You left me here in this world of night
And I must travel alone
