Intro:
G C G D
x2

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

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

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

x2

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

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

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