[C]A [/]th[/]um[/]b [2]go[/]es[/] u[/]p,[3] a[/] c[/]ar[/] g[4]oe[/]s by
It's nearly 1 AM and here am I
Hitchin' a [F]ride, [G7] hitchin' a [C]ride
Gotta get me [F]home [G7] by the mornin' [C]light
Verse 2:
I've got no fare to ride a train
I'm nearly drownin' in the pourin' rain
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to my baby's side
[F]Ride, ride, [G7]ride, hitchin' a [C]ride
[F]Ride, ride, [G7]ride, hitchin' a [C]ride
Verse 3:
Long-distance call I got today
She sounded lonely, so I'm on my way
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to keep her satisfied
(instrumental: 2 measures of drum solo, 4 of C, 8 of C7)
Verse 4:
A thumb goes up, a car goes by
Won't somebody stop and help a guy
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Been away too long from my baby's side
(repeat and fade):
[C7]Ride, ride
NOTE: The above tab approximates the recording. However, I like to play it
differently: I substitute the middle instrumental for one patterned after a
verse minus its last line. Then, instead of the ending coda, I repeat the
chorus and fade.
