Asus 
Men walkin' 'long the railroad tracks 

Cadd9                      A7sus4 G6
Goin' someplace there's no goin'  back 

G6        
Highway patrol choppers comin' up over the bridge 

Asus                   Asus/G    Asus
Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge 


Asus 
Shelter line stretchin' 'round the corner 

Cadd9          A7sus4    G6
Welcome to the new world order 

G6
Families sleepin' in their cars in the southwest 

   Asus           Asus/G   Asus
No home no job no peace no rest 


Refrain:

      F 
(The) Highway is alive tonight 

             C                    G6       Am
But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes 

    G6
I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light 

Asus              Asus/G       Asus
Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad 


Asus
He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping bag 

Cadd9                         A7sus4  G6 
Preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag 

G6
Waitin' for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last 

     Asus                     Asus/G   Asus
In a cardboard box 'neath the under-  -pass 

      Asus
Got a one-way ticket to the promised land 

          Cadd9                  A7sus4      G6
You got a hole in your belly and gun in your hand 

G6
Sleepin' on a pillow of solid rock 

Asus                Asus/G Asus
Bathin' in the city aque-  -duct 


Refrain:

          F 
(But the) highway is alive tonight 

      C                 G6        Am
(But) where it's headed everybody knows 

    G6
I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light 

Asus           Asus/G       Asus
Waitin' on the ghost of Tom Joad  


Refrain (solo without singing):

F, C, G6, Am

Asus/G   Asus (silent part, try to listen, how its played)


Asus
wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy 

         Cadd9            A7sus4 G6
wherever a hungry newborn baby   cries 

G6
Where there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air 

Asus            Asus/G  Asus 
Look for me mom I'll be there 


Asus
Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a place to stand 

     Cadd9           A7sus4  G6
Or a decent job or a helpin' hand 

G6
Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free 

Asus                   Asus/G     Asus
Look in their eyes mom you'll see me. 


Refrain:

          F 
(But the) highway is alive tonight 

    C                             G6       Am
But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes 

G6
I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light 

Asus              Asus/G  Asus
With the ghost of old Tom Joad 


Refrain (solo without singing): F, C, G6, Am, G6, Asus, Asus/G, Asus (x2)
