[Verse 1]
  Dmaj9    D6
So far a - way,
Dmaj9            D6         Gmaj7        G6
Doesn't anybody stay in one place any - more?
Em7            G/A              Dmaj7  G/D Dmaj7
It would be so fine to see your face at my door,
   Gmaj7   F#m7    Em7   G/A         Dmaj9          D6
It doesn't help to know you're just...     time a - way,
Dmaj9         D6                 Gmaj7            G6
Long ago I reached for you, and...     there you stood,
  Em7           G/A            Dmaj7 G/D  Dmaj7
Holding you a - gain could only do    me  good,
Gmaj7  F#m7    Em7        G/A
 How I wish I could, but you're so...
Dmaj9             D6     Dmaj9    D  A/C#
      ...far a - way!  |  /   /   /   /  |


[Verse 2]
Bm                    A6               G
One more song about moving along the highway,
G  D/F#  Em7                G/A           Dmaj7
        Can't say much of anything that's new,
  F#m           F#m7               Em7
If I could only work this life out---- my way,
     G/A         Bm        Em7          G/A
I'd rather spend it being close to you------...


[Verse 3]
                 Dmaj9           D6
...But you're so      ...far a - way,
Dmaj9            D6         Gmaj7        G6 
Doesn't anybody stay in one place any - more?
Em7            G/A              Dmaj7  G/D Dmaj7
It would be so fine to see your face at my door,
   Gmaj7   F#m7    Em7   G/A       Dmaj9          D6
It doesn't help to know you're so...     far a - way,
Dmaj9         D6           Gmaj7        G6    Em7   G/A
      Yeah - eah, you're so...  far a - way! | /  /  /  / |
                                               ^  ^  ^

[Verse 4]
  G/A                  A6               G/A
Traveling around sure gets me down and lonely,
  Em7               G/A               Dmaj7
Nothing else to do,      but close my mind,
  F#m7                             Em7
I sure hope the road don't come to  ...own me,
        G/A       Bm        Em7            G/A
There's so many dreams I've yet to find!


[Verse 5]
                 Dmaj9          D6
...But you're so     ...far a - way,
Dmaj9            D6         Gmaj7        G6 
Doesn't anybody stay in one place any - more?
            Em7     G/A              Dmaj7  G/D Dmaj7
It would be...   so fine to see your face at my door,
       Gmaj7   F#m7    Em7   G/A       Dmaj9          D6
And it doesn't help to know you're so...      far a - way,
Dmaj9        D6               Gmaj7         G6
      Yeah - eah, you're so...      far a - way,
Em7      G/A           Dmaj9      D6   Dmaj9   D6
    Hey,     you're so...    far-----  away------!
