Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

New Speedway Boogie  Grateful Dead

[Am]Please don't dominate the rap Jack, if you got nothin' new to say.              [C]          
[G] [Am] 
And also please, don't back up the tracks, this train's got to run today.
[Am]I spent a little time on the mountain, spent a little time on the hill.         [C]          
[G] [Am] 
[Am]Like some say, better run away; others say you better stand stil[C]l.                      [G]  
[Am]Now I don't know but I been told that it's hard to run with the                         [C]  
[G] [Am] 
weight of gold
[Am]On the other hand, I've heard it said, it's just as hard with the                       [C]  
                                                weight of lead          [D]

[Am]Who can deny, who can deny, it's not just a change of style.            [C]                  
[G] [Am] 
One step done and another begun, and I wonder how many miles.
[Am]I spent a little time on the mountain, spent a little time on the hill,         [C]          
[G] [Am] 
I saw things getting out of hand but I guess they always will.
[Am]Well, I don't know, but I've been told in the heat of the sun a man                     [C]  
[G] [Am] 
died of cold
[Am]Keep on comin' or stand and wait with the sun so dark and the hour so late.             [C]  
[G] [D] 

[Am]You can't overlook the lack, Jack, of any other highway to ride,                [C]          
[G] [Am] 
It's got no signs or dividing lines, and very few rules to guide.
[Am]Now I don't know but I've been told if the horse don't pull you                 [C]          
[G] [Am] 
got to carry the load.
[Am]I don't know whose back`s that strong; maybe find out before too long.          [C]          
[G] [D] 

[Am]One way or another, one way or another, this darkness has got to give.
