D A Em7 Gmaj7/B G
I found a picture of you oh
D A Em7 Gmaj7/B G
What hijacked my world that night
D A Em7 Gmaj7/B G
To a place in the past we've been cast out of oh
D A Em7 Gmaj7/B G
Now we're back in the fight

Em A Em7 A
We're back on the train hey
Em A D A D A
Aaaah, back on the chain gang

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 our eyes and descended like flies

Put us back on the train, yeah
Aaaaah, back on the chain gang

D A Em7 D A Em7 D

In the wretched life of a lonely heart

Aaaah, back on the chain gang

NOTE: If you find Gmaj/B too hard to finger, try Bm in its place. Not as accurate, but a hell of a lot easier.
