[F/G]I lay my head_ [F/G]On the railroad track_ [F/G]Stare at the sky_ [F/G]All painted up_
[D]Your train is gone, won't be comin' [G]back
See [D]the [C]conste[G]llation, [-]ride a[C]cross the [A]sky
[G]No ci[D]gar no [C]lady on his [A]arm, [G]just a [D]guy made of [C]dots and [G]lines
[G]Just a [D]guy made of [C]dots and [G]lines
Two years ago_ Moved from my town_ I was looking up_ Past the city lights_
But the city lights got in my way
(For this verse, there is no guitar, the base is playing F and G in the same
rythm as the chords in the other verses)
I found my mind_ On the ground below_ I was looking up_ It was looking back_
I was in the sky all dressed in black
(CHORUS:Which is extended with...)
[G]Just a [D]guy made of [C]dots_ [-]and_ [F]lines_
(Some improv here, then play the riff over this)
Can you hear what I see in the sky?
At the end, there's something going on with a G chord. Some bending and
stuff. listen to the song and play with it.
