Make It Last  Eric Andersen

Here's a nice tune by Eric Andersen off his "Stages: The Lost Tracks" album.
Solo guitar accompaniment won't quite capture all the beauty of this one,
without the piano, mandolin, and nice harmonies by Shawn Colvin on
the actual recording.
(Eric Andersen)
Guitar: Capo III
Intro: G C G C F G C
verse 1:
[C]It's 2 am and [G]pitch [C]black
And I've [F]got so far to [C]go
My hands are hangin' [F]from the [C]wheel
But my [G]mind it only [F]roams[G]
The [C]sun went down be[G]hind the [C]hills
And the [F]miles are draggin' [D7]past
This [C]highway rolls [D7]forever
But I'm [F]comin' [G]home at [C]last
[C]Make it last[G]
I want to [F]feel the mornin' come
Make it [C]last[G]
I want to [F]see the mornin' [G]sun
I [C]want to fly
Like an [F]angel in the wind
Make it [C]last[G]
'til I'm [F]in your [G]arms [C]again
verse 2: (same chords as verse 1)
By the highway is a diamond
Glowin' in the night
All along the dark horizon
First sign and crack of light
Up the road I see a hotel
Better pull in off the line
Tomorrow seems forever
But I'll make it home on time
Repeat refrain.
[Am]Ridin' 'neath the [C]shotgun moon
The [F]clouds watch from [Dm7]above
[C]The things we do to [G]keep this life
[C]The things we do for [F]love
[Am]The chain they call the [C]highway
Can [F]nail you like a [Dm7]stone
What I [C]wouldn't do to [G]have one hour
To [F]be with [G]you [C]alone
Repeat refrain.
Up ahead I see a woman
I can see her silhouette
It's 4 am, the lights are out
I can see the empty bed
She's starin' out the window
She puts out a cigarette
The night rolls on forever
Like the prairies in the West
Repeat refrain.
