Verse 1:
[F]We're still in Wisconsin
[Am]As far as I know
[Dm]Today was Green Bay
And [Gm]tomorrow's Chicago
[C]Wish I was lying
But there isn't [Gm]much to report
[Bb]My phone is dying
So I've [F]got to keep it short
Chorus 1:
[F]I just wanted to s[Am]ay...[Dm]hey
I've been[Gm] writing you a [C]road song
It's a cl[Am]iche, but [Dm]hey
That [Gm]doesn't make it [C]so wrong
And in b[Am]etween the stops at the [Dm]Cracker Barrel
And [Gm]forty movies w[C]ith Will Ferrell
I [Am]need some way to[Dm] occupy my [Gm]time
So I'm writing you a [C]road song
I [Gm]sure hope [C]you don't min[F]d [Fsus4] [F]
Ooh ooh [Am]ooh ooh o[D7]oh [Gm]ooh ooh ooh ooh [C]ooh uh [F]huh[Fsus4] [F]
Verse 2:
[F]I bought you a light blue
[Am]T shirt last night
[Dm]From some band I couldn't stand
But their [Gm]logo's alright
[C]Some kid threw a bottle onstage
He had an [Gm]arm like a pro
[Bb]I know it's getting late
I guess [F]I should let you go
Chorus 2:
But did I happen to s[Am]ay...[Dm]hey
I've been [Gm]writing you a [C]road song
Don't run [Am]away cause[Dm] hey
I p[Gm]romise it won't be [C]too long
I know it's [Am]not what you'd call[Dm] necessary
And [Gm]I know that I'm [C]no Steve Perry
But [Am]even if you [Dm]roll your eyes and [Gm]groan
I'm still writing you a [C]road song
That [Gm]you can [C]call your [F]own[Fsus4] [F]
Ooh ooh [Am]ooh ooh o[D7]oh [Gm]ooh ooh ooh ooh [C]ooh uh [F]huh[Fsus4]
End: F
Cheers, and buy Sky Full of Holes!
