Riff # 1:

Verse 1:
I wa[G]nt to kill this m[D]an, but he tur[G]ned around and r[D]an
I'll k[C]ill him with ka[D]rate that I lea[C]rned in Ja[D]pan
He wou[G]ldn't see my fa[D]ce, I woul[G]dn't leave a tra[D]ce.
I wou[C]ldn't use a bul[D]let, cause a bul[C]let's a disgr[D]ace.
[Em]Aw, Mom I n[Bm]ever thought that [Em]I was a murdering [Bm]man
But ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay, ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay
Verse 2:
There's this dra[G]wer that I k[D]now, in a h[G]ouse up the r[D]oad
That's f[C]ull of thi[D]ngs that are ea[C]sily so[D]ld
When they g[G]o out of t[D]own I could [G]go and snoop aro[D]und
And ma[C]ke myself r[D]ich, off the th[C]ings that I fo[D]und
[Em]Aw, Mom I n[Bm]ever thought that [Em]I was a stealing [Bm]man
But ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay, ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay
Verse 3:
I was sit[G]ting on the ble[D]acher, sta[G]ring at the spe[D]aker
Re[C]ading his li[D]ps, but I co[C]uld not under[D]stand
So I op[G]ened up my e[D]ars and cle[G]arly I could he[D]ar
This det[C]ailed st[D]ory all ab[C]out a grain of sa[D]nd
[Em]Aw, Mom I al[Bm]ways dreamt of b[Em]eing a good lis[Bm]tener
So ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay, ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay
Verse 4:
There's this k[G]id you gotta m[D]eet, he li[G]ves across the st[D]reet
Hes got sp[C]irit and he[D]art, we're t[C]en years ap[D]art
He is u[G]p for anyt[D]hing, he can h[G]ang with anyo[D]ne
He st[C]ill likes the th[D]ings, we used to th[C]ink were f[D]un
[Em]Aw, mom I n[Bm]ever thought that [Em]I could have a fr[Bm]iend
But to[C]night I'm on my [G]way, to[C]night I'm on my [G]way
C G C (D, Riff)
Oh tonight, I'm on my way
Verse 5:
I'm in lo[G]ve with someo[D]ne, who's as pr[G]etty as a flo[D]wer
Her li[C]fe gives me po[D]wer, so I'm bu[C]ying her a ri[D]ng
She makes ha[G]ts with her h[D]ands, s[G]he is such an art[D]ist
I[C]'m her biggest f[D]an and I'm teac[C]hing her to s[D]ing
[Em]Aw, Mom I n[Bm]ever thought that [Em]I could love no [Bm]one
But ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay, ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay
Ohhhh ton[C]ight I'm on my w[G]ay.[C] [G]
