A ROAD IS JUST A ROAD (Mary-Chapin Carpenter & John Jennings)
-------------------------------------------------------------

[Actually in A; capo 2.]
[Each chord is half a measure.]

G  G  D  D    G  G  C  C    G  G  D  D    G  G  G  G
[intro]

G           G        D         D
  He pulled out in a cloud of dust
G        G          C       C
  Laying rubber and spewing rust
       Em  Em        D    D
And on any road he'd take
              C           G/B          Am             D
He'd have his foot on the pedal and my heart on the brake(break)

G      G           D        D
  Underneath the smooth tar curves
G           G    C        C
  A road is only dust and dirt
     Em     Em     D   D
On a lonely interchange
    C         Am        D   D
The signs all look the same

         G       G       D   D       C         C       D      D
'Cause a road is just a road   and a feeling's just a feeling
   G      G          D  D      C     C     D      D
No matter where you go,   from Waterloo to Wichita
  G       G       D   D          C         C     Em/B     Em/B
A road is just a road   that the one you love is leaving on
C        C        Em/B    Em/B   D     D       G  G    G   G
  And midnight's another dawn,     100 miles ago    [these two G's are only
                                                     played the first time.]

His wheels spun out of sight of me
Believing that I'd set him free
But I'd heard the voice of the prisoner
Saying he couldn't get enough of her

You go by land, you go by air
You go by sea, hell I don't care
You can go any way you choose
Wearing out the soles of your traveling shoes

And a road is just a road and a feeling's just a feeling
No matter where you go, from Bangor, Maine to Bakersfield
A road is just a road that the one you love is leaving on
And midnight's another dawn, a hundred miles ago

[Guitar solo: same chords as chorus.]

F           F         C       C
  And every sleepless night I see him
G          G     C      C   C   C
Screaming by the scenery
    F    F     C      C
Not noticing another mile
       G       G           C        C   C   C    D   D   D   D
That's rolled down between him and me

'Cause a road is just a road and a feeling's just a feeling
No matter where you go, from Saskatoon to San Antone
A road is just a road that the one you love is leaving on
And midnight's another dawn, a hundred miles ago

Yes, a road is just a road and a feeling's just a feeling
No matter where you go, from San Bernardino to Sault Ste. Marie
A road is just a road that the one you love is leaving on
And midnight's another dawn, a hundred miles ago
