Intro
Riff 1 [2x]

Verse 1
Riff 1                       Riff  1
Oh, I guess they'll say I've grown
                                  D5/B
I know more than I wanted to know
       E7                        A7sus4
I said more, than I wanted to say

Chorus 1
           Riff 1
I'm headed home
                     Riff 1
Yeah, but I'm not so sure
               D5/B                G5        Riff 1
That home is a place you can still get to by train

Post-Chorus 1
       D5/B
So I'm looking out the window
        E7
And I'm drifting off to sleep
        D5/B                           G5
With my face pressed up against the pane
         Dsus2
With the rhythm of my heart
      G5
And a ringing in my ears
         A7sus4*                 Riff 1 [2x]
It's the rhythm of my southbound train

Bridge
Dsus2                                     G5
Oh, well the wind starts to look like her hair
                                   A7sus4*
And the clouds in her bright blue eyes
                                  G5
As the sea and the shore fall and rise
                                      Dsus2
Like her breast as she breathes by my side

And the moon is her lips
       G5                            A7sus4*
As the sun is headed on down to the sea
                                G5
Like her head as she lays down on me

Until we reach ocean side

Post-Chorus 2
D5/B
Over and over
  G5
I hear the same refrain
         Dsus2
It's the rhythm of my heart
       G5
And my sleepy girl's breathing
         A7sus4*                 Riff 2 [2x]
It's the rhythm of my southbound train

Verse 2
Riff 1                                Riff 1
Oh, I guess they'll say I should have known
                             D5/B
Or maybe I'm just feeling old
       E7                     A7sus4
Like a lawyer with no one to blame

Chorus 2
           Riff 1
I'm headed home
                     Riff 1
Yeah, but I'm not so sure
               D5/B            G5              Riff 1
That home is a place that will ever be the same

Post-Chorus 3
      D5/B
So we gathering up our things
       E7
And we head out in the cold
    D5/B                                  A7sus4
And your eyes are where you carry the pain
       Dsus2
When I hear the whistle weeping
     G5
It's crying to the sky
         A7sus4*                 G5
It's the rhythm of my southbound train
         A7sus4                  Riff 1 [2x]
It's the rhythm of my southbound train

About the artist behind Southbound Train Chords:

Jonathan Mark Foreman (born October 22, 1976) is the lead singer, guitarist, and co-founder of the alternative rock band Switchfoot. He started Switchfoot in 1996 with drummer Chad Butler and his brother Tim on bass. He writes or co-writes the music for all of Switchfoot's songs.

Foreman was born in San Bernardino County, California, but his family then moved to Massachusetts and Virginia Beach during his childhood. After moving to Encinitas in North County San Diego in his junior high years, he went to Torrey Pines High School in Carmel Valley, California, and he became fast friends with Todd Cooper who encouraged him to learn guitar. [1] Cooper was later a guitar tech for Switchfoot, eventually leaving in 2005 to pursue his own musical career. Foreman attended UC San Diego and later dropped out to follow his singing career.
