This is one of Joni's favourite tunings. The chord shapes will also be pretty
familiar to anyone who has played other songs of hers in this tuning 
(e.g Sunny Sunday, Cherokee Louise etc). Even with those same chords, it's
still a great song, with a wonderful shuffle rhythm.


Intro:
------

0 12 12 12 12 0     0 12 12 0 0 0     0 12 12 x x x     (play three times)


0 12 12 12 12 0     0 12 12 0 0 0     x x x x x x   (strike muted strings)



Verse 1:
--------

(Use hammer-ons to change from the 555555 chords to the 575655 chords)


    0 12 12 12 12 0   xxx000   999800   777777

It was a dark      and a    stormy night


555555  575655              555555  575655  555555

      Everyone was at the wing-ding


0 12 12 12 12 0   xxx000   999800   777777

   They  weren't  the  wing-ding type


555555                  575655               555555        575655  555555

So they went up on the train bridge where the weather was howling and


5555xx   777777    999800   990000     5555xx     777777   999800   990000

 Oh,     oh,   my my       when that train comes rolling by



Chorus:
-------

  555555                            777777   

No paper thin walls, no folks above no one else can hear 


0 12 12 12 12 0       0 12 12 0 0 0      0 12 12 x x x     0 12 12 12 12 0      0 12 12 0 0 0 

The crazy cries of love


(All verses and choruses use the same chords, except for the final chorus)


Verse 2:
--------

They were laughing, they were dancing in the rain
They knew their love was a strong one
When they heard the far off whistle of a train
They were hoping it was going to be a long one
Cuz oh, oh, my my
When that train comes rolling by


Chorus:
-------

No paper thin walls, no folks above
No one else can hear
The crazy cries of love


Middle 8:
---------

       555555    575655     555555   

In the back booth of an all night cafe


575655   555555    777777      999800      990000

Two dripping raincoats are hanging


555555   575655   555555   575655   555555

  Outside in the weather 


                 777777          999800       

The shade on the streetlight is clanging


990000    555555  777777     999800

And they smile ear to ear and eye to eye


10 10 10 10 x x

Ice cream is melting on a piece of pie and


555555     777777                         0 12 12 12 12 0    0 12 12 0 0 0    0 12 12 x x x

Oh, my my, no one else can hear the cries of love


0 12 12 12 12 0    0 12 12 0 0 0



Verse 3:
--------

Every kiss was sweet and strong
Every touch was totally tandem
As the train come a-rumbling along
They sang a lover's song of wild abandon
And oh, oh, my my
When that train comes rolling by


Final Chorus:
-------------

   555555                            777777   
No paper thin walls, no folks above, no one else can hear


999800

The crazy cries of love


  555555                            777777   
No paper thin walls, no folks above, no one else can hear


0 12 12 12 12 0   0 12 12 0 0 0    0 12 12 x x x   

The crazy cries of love


0 12 12 12 12 0   0 12 12 0 0 0    0 12 12 x x x   


0 12 12 12 12 0   0 12 12 0 0 0    0 12 12 x x x
