It’s a long stretch of highway at midnight in New Mexico
G                                  Cmaj7                 D
It’s a small colored light that shines from your car radio
         Cmaj7                G
It’s the old motel owner who sleeps on a cot
    Cmaj7                         D
And gives you the very last hit from her pot
G             Cmaj7                     G    Cmaj7
It’s a lonely feeling it’s what you’ve got
G             Cmaj7               G   Cmaj7
It’s a lonely feeling like it or not

It’s someone’s recorder when hoping that someone is home

G             Cmaj7                     G    Cmaj7
It’s a lonely feeling you just can’t erase

It’s fright and rejected, neglected the blind deaf and dumb
         Cmaj7                       G
But you look in the mirror and you’re still hanging in
    Cmaj7                   D
It’s there to remind you how lucky you’ve been
G             Cmaj7              G   Cmaj7
It’s a lonely feeling now and again
G             Cmaj7                      G      Cmaj7
It’s a lonely feeling that comes from within.
