[Em]I am a long haul driver and I'm [Am]leaving at dawn.

[C]I don't think that I will see you,

so I'll [G]leave the porchlight [B7]on.

I [Em]know you land at 8 o'clock but [Am]I'll be gone by 5.

So [C]I'll be waving out the window [G]as I pass the airport by.

[Em]I am a long haul driver and I'm [Am]leaving at dawn.

[C]I don't think that I will see you,

so I'll [G]leave the porchlight [B7]on. yea. [ms] [#1] [ms] [#2]


[Em]Through Michigan to Illinois and [Am]Indiana, too.

[C]I'll turn the rig towards the north, but [G]still away from you-

[Em]are waltzing through my mind's blue eye and [Am]strumming your guitar.

[C]Two thousand miles between us yet [G]I'm never, ever that far.


[Em]Because, I am a long haul driver[Am] and I'm leaving at dawn.

[C]I don't think that I will see you,

so I'll [G]leave the porchlight [B7]on.[ms] [#2] [ms] [#1] [ms] [#2] [ms] [#1] [ms] [#2]

[Em]My cargo's bound for Winnipeg, by [Am]way of St.Paul

[C]I'll be picking Brown-Eyed-Susan's by the roa[G]d as twilight falls.

[Em]When I cross back into Canada, well [Am]I may stop for a smoke.

[C]Yes, I know these things will kill me, but my [G]dear, so might the road.

[Em]I am a long haul driver and I'm [Am]leaving at dawn.

[C]I don't think that I will see you,

so I'll [G]leave the porch light [B7]on, oh yea. [ms] [#1] [ms#2] [ms] [#1] [ms#2]


[Em]The city lights are rising up the [G]midnight black horizon.

[B]I'm wishing you are with me where no [Em]passenger[G] is [A]rid[B]ing.

[Em]With my payload unloaded safely [G]out in the St. Vital,

[B]I will try to catch the *Perps at **high and [Em]lo [G]bef[A]ore [B]last c[B7]all.


[Em]Well I am a long haul driver and[Am] I'm leaving at dawn.

[C]I don't think that I will see you,

so I'll [G]leave the porch light [B7]on,


[Em]I am a long haul driver and I'm [Am]leaving at dawn.

[C]I'll be home before you wake so [G]leave the porch light [B7]on

[C]I'll be home before you wake so [G]leave the porch light [B7]on    [Em]
