E (4 bars under keyboard fill)

E (guitars like in 1st verse)

Been driving five hundred miles, got five hundred to go, yeah
I got rock'n'roll music on my radio
I got a brother on a rig just off the Gulf coast
He says the girls down there are really the most, man

After the keyboard solo looong improvised guitar solos in
E blues scale over the chorus chord progression (E  D A).

After Bruce finds out that his audience is alive, he leads the
band to the third verse:

(6:10)
E

Well I got thrown out of work on the Kokomo
Don't ask me what I'm doing, I don't know
I hope he wasn't joking when he wrote me that letter
Things can't get any worse, they gotta get better

A

I'm a little down under but I'm doing OK

B

Got a little lost along the way
