From _Sitting By the Road_ album

Travis picking with guitar tuned down a half step (key of F#)

For 2 consecutive measures of the same chord, I play the first with an outside - in
pattern, skipping the "and of 1", playing two alternating bass notes in a row.  For the second measure I
use a more rolling pattern, e.g. inside-out, sometimes using ring finger variation.
Doesn't matter, use what you like.

[Chorus]
          G
I'm goin' down to the Greyhound station
            C
Gonna get a ticket to ride
       G
Find a big fat lady with two or three kids
        D
And sit down by her side
G
Ride 'til the sun comes up and down around me
      C
'Bout two or three times
        G
Smokin' cigarettes in the last seat
D
Try to hide my sorrow from the people I meet

[Verse]
        G
And get along with it all
              C
Go down where people say y'all
       G
Sing a song with a friend
           D
Change the shape that I'm in **
        G                          C
And get back in the game and start playin' again
G   D G

G
I'd like to stay but I might have to go
         C
To start over again
         G
Might go back down to Texas might go to somewhere
     D
That I've never been **
        G
And get up in the mornin' and go out at night
            C
And I won't have to go home
            G
Get used to bein' alone
           D
Change the words to this song **
      G
Start singin' again
C   G   D G

I'm tired of runnin' 'round lookin' for answers to questions that I already know
        G                                          D
I could build me a castle of memories just to have somewhere to go **
          G                                                    C
Count the days and the nights that it takes to get back in the saddle again
         G
Feed the pigeons some clay
         D
Turn the night into day **
      G                     C
Start talkin' again, when I know what to say
G   D G

[Chorus]
