         D                    -                -   -
 I don't want to be first in line to see Mrs. Train
     D                     -             A   -
 I expect that it doesn't matter to Mrs. Train
       A                    -               -                      D
 Being comfortable with yourself and being patient and taking your time
           D              G    /    A    D   -
 Are the things that Mrs. Train can understand

 D                 -
 I've never seen a train like this before
 -                           -
 But then again there's never been
   G                -                D   -
 A train like this before, like Mrs. Train
     A                       G
 And someone's got to be the one to declare
           F#m                G      /    A    D  -
 That they want to be next in line to see Mrs. Train

             D                    -               -     -
 But I don't want to be first in line to see Mrs. Train
     D                     -             A   -
 I expect that it doesn't matter to Mrs. Train
       A                       -                 -              D
 Being patient and taking your time are things a train can understand
             D            G     /      A   D   -
 And I'll be happy when I finally take her hand

 D                    -
 There's never been a train like this before
 -                           -
 Someone's got to be the one
        G                  -                    D     -
 At the head of the line, the first to see Mrs. Train
     A              G                F#m
 But I'm not in any rush to head the line
            G    /     A       D  -
 And so the line has a missing head

             D                   -               -       -
 And I don't want to be first in line to see the missing head
     D                    -                     A      -
 I expect that it doesn't matter to the missing head
       A                       -                      -             D
 Being patient and taking your time are things that a head can understand
             D            G   /   A        D   -
 And I'll be happy when I finally take its hand

 D                    -

     A              G                F#m
 But I'm not in any rush to head the line
            G    /     A       D  -
 And so the line has a missing head

             D                   -               -       -

     D                    -                     A      -
 I expect that it doesn't matter to the missing head
       A                       -                      -             D
