Alice  Cheryl Wheeler

CAPO: 2nd Fret
INTRO: C Dm F G
[C]Alice works the desk at the [Dm]East Bay Hotel
In [F]Grand Marais, Minne[G]sota
[C]I came in one night, she said, "I [Dm]loved your show"
We [F]sat and talked on the [G]sofa[C]
She's on her [F]own since her [G]husband passed away[C]
Some surgeon [F]screwed up, there's [G]nothing left to say
Now she [C]works this desk at night and the [Dm]campground by day
In a [F]trailer by the lake, until the [G]summer blows away
She [C]read about the job in a [Dm]camping magazine
And [F]home was just a re[G]minder
So she [C]took the cat and dog, [Dm]stored away her things[F]
Left the bleakness be[G]hind her[C]
Even [F]now through the [G]ache of missing him[C]
She's filled with [F]wonder and [G]far from giving in
She sees [C]magic on the lake in the [Dm]early morning light
And [F]talking books and telling tales, we [G]sat there half the night
CHORUS:
And she said, "The [C]more I travel, the [F]more I wanna see
[G]My kids want some [C]settled life for me
I don't wanna [A]move somewhere and grow [Dm]old quiet[Dsus2]ly
And the more I [G]travel, the [F]more I wanna [C]see"
Well, it's [C]time to make a change, with [Dm]winter in the wings
And the [F]East Bay Hotel made an [G]offer
But she [C]doesn't really know, 'cause there's [Dm]everywhere to go
And there's [F]everything that travelling has [G]taught her[C]
Moving [F]marches down [G]busy city streets[C]
Fantastic people she's [F]privileged to [G]meet
And she [C]dreams about Alaska, the [Dm]snow so deep and white
And that [F]little town in Texas, where there's [G]dancing every night
CHORUS:
She says, "The [C]more I travel, the [F]more I wanna see
[G]My kids want some [C]settled life for me
I don't wanna [A]move somewhere and grow [Dm]old quiet[Dsus2]ly
And the more I [G]travel"[F] [C]
CHORUS:
"The more I travel, the [F]more I wanna see
[G]My kids want some [C]settled life for me
I don't wanna [A]move somewhere and grow [Dm]old quiet[Dsus2]ly
And the more I [G]travel, the [F]more I wanna [C]see"
The [G]more I wanna [C]see"
