Intro:
G C G D
x2

I’m going [G]down to the greyhound station
Gonna get a [C]ticket to ride
Gonna [G]find that lady with 2 or 3 kids
And sit [D]down by her side
And [G]Ride until the sun comes up and down around me about [C]2 or 3 times smoking [G]cigarettes in the last seat
[D]trying to hide my sorrow from the people I meet

And get [G]along with it all
Whenever [C]people say I’ll
Sing a [G]song with a friend
Change the [D]shape that I’m in
And get [G]back in the game
And start [C]playing again [G]

[G]I’d like to stay but I might have to go to start [C]over again
I might go [G]back down to Texas I might go somewhere that [D]I’ve never been
And get [G]up in the morning and go out at night
And I won’t [C]have to go home
Get used to [G]being alone
Change the [D]words to this song
And start [G]singing again [C] [G]

x2

I’m tired of [G]running round looking for answers to questions that I [C]already know
I could [G]build me a castle of memories just to have [D]somewhere to go
Count the [G]days and the nights that it takes to get back in the [C]saddle again
Feed the [G]pigeons some clay
Turn the [D]night into day
Start [G]talking again if I [C]know what to say [G]

I’m going [G]down to the greyhound station
Gonna get a [C]ticket to ride
Gonna [G]find that lady with 2 or 3 kids
And sit [D]down by her side
And [G]Ride until the sun comes up and down around about [C]2 or 3 times
Smoking [G]cigarettes in the last seat
[D]trying to hide my sorrow from the people I meet

And get [G]along with it all
Going down where [C]people say I’ll
Feed the [G]pigeons some clay
Turn the [D]night into day
Start [G]talking again when I [C]know what to say [G]

x2
