A Road Is Just A Road  Mary Chapin Carpenter



-------------------------------------------------------------

[G](in[G]tro[D])  [D]     [G]   [G]   [C]   [C]     [G]   [G]   [D]   [D]     [G]   [G]   [G]   [G]
[G]  He pulled [G]out in a [D]cloud of d[D]ust
[G]  Laying [G]rubber and [C]spewing [C]rust
And on [Em]any [Em]road he'd [D]take [D]
He'd have his [C]foot on the [G/B]pedal and my [Am]heart on the br[D]ake(break)
[G]  Under[G]neath the sm[D]ooth tar [D]curves
[G]  A road is [G]only [C]dust and [C]dirt
On a [Em]lonely [Em]interch[D]ange[D]
The [C]signs all [Am]look the s[D]ame [D]
'Cause a [G]road is [G]just a r[D]oad [D]  and a [C]feeling's [C]just a f[D]eeling [D]
No [G]matter [G]where you g[D]o, [D]  from [C]Waterl[C]oo to [D]Wichita[D]
A [G]road is [G]just a r[D]oad [D]  that the [C]one you lo[C]ve is [Em/B]leaving o[Em/B]n
[C]  And mid[C]night's a[Em/B]nother d[Em/B]awn,   [D]  100 [D]miles ag[G]o  [G]  (th[G]ese [G]two G's are only
played the first time.)

His wheels spun out of sight of me
Believing that I'd set him free
But I'd heard the voice of the prisoner
Saying he couldn't get enough of her

You go by land, you go by air
You go by sea, hell I don't care
You can go any way you choose
Wearing out the soles of your traveling shoes

And a road is just a road and a feeling's just a feeling
No matter where you go, from Bangor, Maine to Bakersfield
A road is just a road that the one you love is leaving on
And midnight's another dawn, a hundred miles ago

(Guitar solo: same chords as chorus.)

[F]  And every [F]sleepless [C]night I [C]see him
[G]Screaming b[G]y the [C]scenery[C]    [C]    [C]
Not [F]notic[F]ing an[C]other m[C]ile
That's [G]rolled d[G]own between [C]him and m[C]e   [C]    [C]     [D]    [D]    [D]    [D]

'Cause a road is just a road and a feeling's just a feeling
No matter where you go, from Saskatoon to San Antone
A road is just a road that the one you love is leaving on
And midnight's another dawn, a hundred miles ago

Yes, a road is just a road and a feeling's just a feeling
No matter where you go, from San Bernardino to Sault Ste. Marie
A road is just a road that the one you love is leaving on
And midnight's another dawn, a hundred miles ago
