<verse 1> [twiddle 1]
A                     C#m        
Tim, he goes out everyday
                  F#m
to Darlington railway
                       D
to watch the trains go by
                   A                        E
and you may wonder why it's just a waste of time
                   A [twiddle 2]
does Timmy know the score
                   E
does Timmy know much more
A
You've considered them the wrong way now
C#m
You've considered him the wrong way
F#m
You've considered them the wrong way now
D
You've considered him the wrong way

A                        
This is a club of just wannabe rogues
     C#m                  
with anoraks, cords, and their inspector brogues
    F#m                                           
and Timmy gets up at the dawn every morning
          D        
packs his lunchbox and camera
while he is still yawning, and


<chorus>
A
He's off to fullfill his
C#m
lifes great facination
F#m
He's off to trainspot
D
at the great railway station
E
 ...la ....

<verse 2> [twiddle 1]
A                     C#m  
Tim, he goes to platform 3
                 F#
to see if he can see
                   D
the Glasgow train appear
                       A
and hopes maybe he'll hear
                  E                      
the shunting horn again
                 A [twiddle 2]
nostalgia is his friend
                 E
nostalgia is his friend

A
You've considered them the wrong way now
C#m
You've considered him the wrong way
F#m
You've considered them the wrong way now
D
You've considered him the wrong way

A
For them there's nothing much better to see
        C#m
than a northern bound train with a serial B3
  F#m
a fifty year old Brighton 22 ton
        D
Listen, thanks Mr Stephenson, thanks Mr Stephenson

<chorus>

[chorus chords]
A
Some are old, some are young, some haven't grown up
C#m
some haven't drunk the romance from their lifes cup
F#m
some of them are lucky
some of them are lucky
D
keeping the magic in life
they are so lucky

<chorus>
