Help w/ conversion of txt file to useable form for Mathematica


Can anyone help me with a problem.  I am using another program which
outputs a bunch of data into several text files.  For example, an
outputed file would look like:

((surface_one 3)
(x
7
3
9
)
(y
2
1
6
)
(x-accel
24
17
2
)
)

Except the number of entries would be several thousand.  Each new line
is a carriage return.  I would like to get this data into mathematica
in the form of lists.  For instance, based on the above example, I
would like to define in mathematica:

xcoord={7,3,9};
ycoord={2,1,6};
xaccel={24,17,2};

Does anybody know how to do this easily.  I would be very grateful for
help.  Thanks.
