Turn the Page  Bob Seger

On a [Em]long and lonesome highway east of Omaha
You can [D]listen to the engine, moanin' out its one note song
You can [A]think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night [Em]before. . .
But your [Em]thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
When you're [D]riding sixteen hours and there's nothing much to do
And you [A]don't feel much like ridin', you just wish the trip was [Em]through.
Here I [D]am, on the [Em]road again
There I [D]am, up on [Em]stage
Here I [D]go, playing the [A]star again
There I [C]go,[D] turn the [Em]page
You [Em]walk into a restaurant, strung out from the road
And you [D]feel the eyes upon you, as you're shaking off the cold
You pre[A]tend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to ex[Em]plode . . .
Most [Em]times you cant hear 'em talk, other times you can
All the [D]same old cliches is that a woman or a man
And you [A]always seem outnumbered, you dont dare make a [Em]stand.

Chorus

[Em]Out there in the spotlight, you're a million miles away
[D]Every ounce of energy you try to give away
As the [A]sweat pours out your body like the music that you [Em]play . . .
[Em]Later in evening, as you lie awake in bed
[D]With the echoes from the amplifiers ringin' in your head
You [A]smoke the day's last cigarette, remembering what she [Em]said. . .

Correction Bob 'SEGER'
Lyrics are not right either

KillerCole (report)

if you strum the top 3 strings (GBE) one after the next (GBEBGBEBG), I think its pretty similar to the part that bob seger plays. an alternate fingering that works for the Em chord is 453 (4 on G, 5 on B, and 3 on E).

IF you're playing accoustic try picking the song. Em-64341234 D-43231234 A-53231234. Its just a basic picking pattern that works for a lot of songs. On this song try hitting the root note a little harder than the rest. Especially the e, make it really ring out. that lonesome e really sets the mood for the song.

vague (report)

i play it with a basic ,dw, paus, dw, up,up,dw,dw,up,dw,up,dw simple and sounds great

jefflareau (report)

Try alternating on your tonic notes (ie for the A chord hit the open A and E alternately) and build on that thru the song getting stronger as you go. Just how I like to play it, not how Seger does it...

macavoy (report)
