No Road Romance  Who



[piano approximately arranged for guitar] 
[verse] 
When you [Dm]look through the lights to the st[Fmaj7/C]age
You see the man of your [Ebmaj7/Bb]dreams
You think his [Eb/G]life's full parties and l[Eb/C]ove but it's not what it se[F]ems
If you could [Dm]see in his room right [Fmaj7/C]now
You'd see how much love is [Ebmaj7/Bb]showed
There's [Ebmaj7/G]never really any [A]romance on the [D]road
His forehead seems cut in two by the crease in his brow
He chews his nails as he fidgets just trying to settle on down
The TV channels keep flippin', his adrenaline slowed
There's never really any romance on the road, oh no
[cborus] 
There's never [Eb]romance [F]on the [Bb]road
Only frus[Eb/C]tration and[Eb/G] over[Ab]load
He could fall in [Eb]love, but he'd never [Cm]know
For she's only [Ebmaj7]riding and he's only [Ebmaj7/G]hiding
He's sure to [F]ask, 'cause she won't s[Cm]ay no
But there's [F]never really any [F]romance on the [Bb]road
He was up in the bar straight-backed, did you see him before?
Did he sign you his name, come with me, listen in at his door
Hear himself so drunk calling home, can't remember the code
You know, there's never really any romance on the road, oh no no no
[bridge] 
He's held some [G]beautiful girls in his arms,
But now he clutches his [D]bunk[Dsus2] [D]
For all the [A]good that they're doing him now he might as well be a [Ab]monk
For his [Eb]memories ain't worth a [Eb/G]thing 'til he's old and he's [Eb/C]gone
And his [G]past never quite catches [Gsus4]up, the [G]show's moving [A]on[Asus4] [A]
[repeat verse] 
Did he say he kept a picture of a blonde-haired girl who'd been kind
When he was last home his own daughter brought it into his mind
Maybe closing bars and jets, paid some debts that he owed
But there's never really any romance on the road
[repeat cborus] 
There's never romance on the road
Only frustration and overload
He's never learned a thing from the dust that blowed
On stage for an hour on a laser beam tower
But you know he slept while a neon glowed
There's never really any romance on the road
There's never romance on the road
Only frustration and overload
He could fall in love, but he'd never know
For she's only riding and he's only hiding
He's sure to ask, but she won't say no
There's never really any romance on the road
