{C:Intro:}

Dm Em Dm C Dm C Dm Em

{C:1:} DmThere's a Spanish train that runs between BQuadelquidir and old Seville and at Cdead of night the whistle blows and people A7hear she's running Dmstill. And then they Dmhush their children back to sleep, Block the doors upstairs they creep, for Cit is said that the souls of the dead fill up the A7train, ten thousand Dmdeep. {C:2:} Well a Dmrailway-man lay dying with his Bpeople Cby his Dmside. His family were crying knelt in Bprayer before he A7died, But abBove his head just wCaiting for the dead was the dA7evil with a twinkle in his Dmeye, Well, BGod's not around look wChat I've found? This one's Dmmine! Just then the Lord himself appeared in a bBurning fClash of lDmight. And shouted at the devil, get thee hBence to eA7ndless night. But the dBevil just grinned and said I Cmay have sinned but there's Amno need to push me Dmaround, I Bgot here first so you can Cdo your worst, he's going under gDmround. Well I Dmthink I give you one more chance said the dBevil C with a Dmsmile, so tDmhrow away that stupid lance. It's rBeally not your sA7tyle. JBoker is the name, pCoker is the game, we'll A7play right here on this Bbed. And Bthen we'll bet for the bCiggest stakes yet - the souls of the dDmead. {C:3:} And I said, lBook out LCord he's gonna Dmwin! The Bsun is down and the Cnight's riding Dmin. The tBrain is dead on tA7ime, many sDmouls are on the lGmine, oh LBord, he's gA7onna Dmwin. {C:2:} Now the railway-man he cut the cards and he dealt such a hand of five. And for the Lord he was praying hard for that train he'd have to drive, Well, the devil he had three aces and a king and the Lord he was running for a straight he had the queen and the knave and the ten of spades all he needed was the eight, and then the Lord, he called for one more card but he drew the diamond eight. And the devil said to the Son of God, 'I believe you got it straight, so deal me one for the time has come to see who'll be the king of this place', But as he spoke from beneath his cloak he slipped another ace. The thousand souls was the opening bid, but soon went up to fifty-nine, but the Lord didn't see what the devil did and he said, 'that suits me fine.' I'll raise you high to hundred-five and forever put an end to your sin. But the devil let out a mighty shout: 'my hand wins'. {C:3:} And i said, Lord oh, Lord you let him win. The sun is down and the night's riding in. The train is dead on time, many souls are on the line, oh Lord, he's gonna win. {C:1:} There's a Spanish train that runs between Quadelquidir and old Seville and at dead of night the whistle blows and people hear she's running still. And far away in some recess the Lord and the devil are now playing chess. The devil still cheats and wins more souls and as for the Lord, well, he's just doing his best, {C:3:} And i said, Lord oh, Lord you've gotta win. The sun is down and the night's riding in. The train is still on time, oh my soul is on the line, oh LBord, yCou've got to Dmwin. -- ^ ^ ^ regards, EXTRA / \/ \/ \ NULLA Ludwig BAVARIAM \ /\ /\ / VITA v v v
