This is another slippery Holdsworth composition.  Good stuff

be sure to keep the slurs smooth.

1st 3rd Verses Play Rhy Fig 1

I can see miles and miles away, movin' along this southern bay
Seems like the road can go on forever and ever and ever

verse 3
Guilty road is gaining light, shiver and chills, my body fights
Everything's plain but the grass is still greener
forever and ever


Chorus (Rhy Fig 2)

Chorus:
These are road games, silent road games

2nd Verse play Rhy fig 1

Heat of the sun is in my brain, day turns to night, I feel the pain.
Eyes are so tired they're just turnin into water, to water, to water.
