The third track on my new REMIXES album is a song I have done live for many years, it is one of my favorites.

PENNY ON THE TRACKS
(C.Robertson 06)

F                   Cdim
She’s tied down on her back
Gm6                A7
Between two rails of steel
Dm6                  Bb
She says that things are lookin up
C13
But that’s not how it feels
F             Cdim
She’s waitin for the train
Gm6              A7
With it’s magic wheels
Dm6              Bb
Now there Ain’t no turnin’ back
C13   A9      Dm
For Penny on the tracks

There’s a lotta bad boys
Coiling up their ropes
She says that things are lookin up
But she’s running out of hope
She’s waitin for the train
Feeling like a dope
there ain’t no turning back
For Penny on the Tracks

Asus                         F
She’s been waiting for that big event
Asus                       F
She can’t even paint her nails
Asus        F   D7
But she’s not so sure anymore
Gm7                          C7
When she feels the vibrations in the rails.

Life used to be a movie
Full of lovely little twists
But now the ropes are tied too tight
And chafe and burn her wrists
There’s too much plot and danger
Before she’s even kissed
It’s all nasty laughs and moustache wax
For Penny on the Tracks
