Someone may know this song. In the meantime, maybe you can transcribe the lyrics from this Youtube link- https://myspace.com/katymoffattmusic/music/song/this-heart-stops-for-railway-crosses-38757624
- and perhaps someone will be along to help with chords. I can't take time right now- got to get the chicken house stained before the rain hits again.

I can't help with the chords, but here are the words—but there's a word or two I can't get in line 5:


THIS HEART STOPS FOR RAILWAY CROSSES
As sung by Katy Moffatt on "Up Close and Personal" (1999)

This heart stops for railway crosses,
Amber lights, and wild horses,
Spirits who've been orphaned by the night.
This horse stops for high-wire walkers,
Dang'rous games and …(?) talkers,
A shadow dance beneath an old street light.

CHORUS: I'm callin' you; I'm missing you.
I'll make it through, but this heart takes its time.
Hooh-ooh, this heart takes its time.

This heart reads between the lines
Of history and highway signs,
Promises and rings of pawn-shop gold.
This heart stops for rainy mornin's,
Distant clouds, and early warnin's,
Silent vows and secrets never told.

This heart stops for dead-end streets,
Icy curves, and tangled sheets,
Power lines cut down by rain and hail.
This heart stops for railway crosses,
Train wrecks with too many losses,
Broken dreams left dyin' on the rail.

According to that site it was co-written by Katy Moffatt and Tom Russell.
