The Road

Jackson Browne

 GG5+GG5+
 Highways and dancehalls, a good song takes you far
 GG/F#EmCC/BAm
 You write about the moon and you dream about the stars...
 GG5+GG5+
 Blues in old motel rooms, girls in daddy's cars
 GG/F#EmCC/BAm
 You sing about the night and you laugh about the scars...

 GG5+GG5+
 Coffee in the morning, cocaine afternoons
 GG/F#EmCC/BAm
 You talk about the weather and you grin about the rooms...
 GG5+GG5+
 Phone calls long distance to tell you how you've been
 GG/F#EmCC/BAm
 You forget about the losses, you exaggerate the wins...

 EmAm7A7C
 And when you stop to let them know you've got it down...
 CC/BAm7D7/F#G
It's just another town along the road.

 GG5+GG5+
 Ladies come to see you, if your name still rings a bell
 GG/F#EmCC/BAm
 They give you damn' near nothin' and they'll say the knew you well...
 GG5+GG5+
So you tell'em you'll remember, but they know it's just a game
 GG/F#EmCC/BAm
And along the way their faces all begin to look the same...

Chorus

 GG5+GG5+
Well it isn't for the money and it's only for a while,
 GG/F#EmCC/BAm
 You stalk about the rooms and you roll away the miles...
 GG5+GG5+
 Gamblers in the neon, clingin' to guitars,
 GG/F#EmCC/BAm
 You write about the moon and you're wrong about the stars...

Chorus
