G                                D
I suppose I'm glad I'm on this train
         C
And it's long
                              G
Somewhere between Dunkirk and Paris
                           D
Most people here are still asleep
        C
But I'm awake
                 D                  G
Looking out from here at half-past France


                                    D
Things are much different here than Norway
        C
Not so cold
                        G
Wonder when well be in Dundee
                          D
Old hollweg knows his way around
        C
Hes no fool
                           G
Wish Id get to see my son again


D         C              D   C
From here on its got to be
D         C              D   C
A simple case of them or me
D          C               D
If theyre alive then I am dead
             C              F
Pray God and eat your daily bread
F
Take your time

G
Were so far away
D
Floating in this bay
G                      F
Were so far away from home
F     C  G
Where we belong

G                         D       C
Im not afraid now of the dark anymore
                           G
And many mountains now are molehills
                                D
Back in Berlin theyre all well fed
        C
I dont care
                       G
People always bored me anyway

D         C              D   C
From here on its got to be
D         C              D   C
A simple case of them or me
D          C               D
If theyre alive then I am dead
             C              F
Pray God and eat your daily bread
F
Take your time

G
Were so far away
D
Floating in this bay
G
Were so far away
D
Floating in this bay
... these two lines repeat to fade
