 -----------------------------------

Intro:
[D] [A] [G] [A] [D]  
Verse 1:
[G]Here I am back [A]on the road ag[D]ain
D[G]on't it feel just l[A]ike my old worst fr[D]iend
The n[G]e'er do well that a m[A]other prays ag[D]ainst
J[G]ack Kerouac meets H[A]uckleberry F[D]inn
Verse 2:
Y[G]es I know the w[A]ays of this old fr[D]iend of mine
He's got some g[G]ood intentions m[A]isinterpreted [D]every time
Said "the r[G]oad is long and w[A]inding" but wh[D]at he really meant
Was the c[G]omfort you are s[A]eeking will not m[D]eet you at the end
Chorus 1:
[G]Gets me going like a f[D]iddle tune
[G]Don't even know what my f[D]eet are doing
[G]Hey, don't f[A]iddlers earn their p[D]ay, OK
[G]Green lights all the w[D]ay to nowhere
[G]Half the fun is [D]in the getting there
And [G]once you figure th[A]at out you're on your w[D]ay
Verse 3:
[G]Oh, it's hot out [A]on the road tod[D]ay
No c[G]over, no cloud, n[A]o chance for esc[D]ape
Exc[G]ept that 18 wh[A]eeler o[D]n the straight-away
So I p[G]ull up, match his sp[A]eed and steal some[D] shade
Chorus 2:
[G]Guess I got me the G[D]ypsy virus
[G]No cure for the r[D]amblin-itis
Exc[G]ept some a[A]sphalt and some d[D]ays, fine days
[G]Green lights all the w[D]ay to nowhere
[G]Half the fun is j[D]ust in getting there
And [G]once you figure th[A]at out you're on your w[D]ay
Guitar Solo:
[G] [A] [D] [G] [G] [A] [D]  
Verse 4:
The r[G]oad can give you f[A]ortunes that are y[D]ours to use or keep
Or [G]it can take your v[A]ery life if it l[D]ulls you off to sleep
But s[G]o can any st[A]yle of life or fr[D]iend that you might choose
So b[G]eing dead and fr[A]iendless, man that's the [D]only way to lose
Chorus 3:
[G]Tomorrow shines like a g[D]old doubloon
[G]You could have it if you w[D]anted to
[G]You just have to h[A]old your mouth the right w[D]ay, that's the way
[G]Green lights all the w[D]ay to nowhere
[G]All the fun is j[D]ust the getting there
And [G]once you figure th[A]at out you're on your w[D]ay
Ending:
Well I'd b[G]est be [A]on, Well I th[G]ink I'm [A]on, I'm f[G]inally [A]on my w[D]ay[G] [A] [D]
