Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
Dm  - x4

Verse 1:
      Dm
On a long and lonesome highway,
East of Omaha
         C
You can listen to the engine moanin'
Out his one long song.
          G
You can think about the woman, or the
                           Dm
Girl you knew the night before.

Verse 2:
           Dm
But your thoughts will soon be wandering,
The way they always do,
             C
When you're ridin' sixteen hours
And there's nothin' much to do
         G
And you don't feel much like ridin',
                              Dm
You just wish the trip was through.

Chorus:
       C          Dm
Here I am on the road again.
        C              Dm
There I am up on the stage.
        C           G
Here I go playin' star again.
         A# C           Dm
There I go    turn the page.

Verse 3:
           Dm
Well, you walk into this restaurant,
Strung out from the road,
         C
And you feel the eyes upon you
As you're shakin' off the cold.
        G
You pretend it doesn't bother you,
                         Dm
But you just want to explode.

Verse 4:
      Dm
Most times you can't hear 'em talk,
Other times you can.
         C
All the same old clichés,
"Is it woman? Is it man?"
        G
And you always seem outnumbered,
                        Dm
You don't dare make a stand.
Make your stand.

[Chorus]

Verse 5:
Dm
Out there in the spotlight,
You're a million miles away,
      C
Every ounce of energy,
You try to give away.
         G
As the sweat pours out your body
                          Dm
Like the music that you play.

Verse 6:
 Dm
Later in the evening
As you lie awake in bed,
         C
With the echoes of the amplifiers
Ringin' in your head,
      G
You smoke the day's last cigarette
                      Dm
Rememberin' what she said.
