[Intro]
Em  

[Verse] 
Em   G   Am            Am       G      Em
Hit The Road Jack,    do you remember Kerouac?
Em     G    Am         Am    G    Em
Whose that Beatnik?    with that gone chick
Em   G   Am        Am      G        Em
Hear the bop go    dig the way the poets blow
         G                            F#m        F       Em
And they drive into the wonder of the sad dark American night

[Verse]
Em     G       Am         Am   G  Em
Speed drenched highway    Dean Moriarty
Em    G    Am       Am   G       Em
Cat plays bongos    It calls you Daddy-o!
Em    G    Am           Am    G  Em
Just can't sit tight   gotta get out tonight
       G                           F#m        F       Em
So we drive into the wonder of the sad dark American night

[Chorus]
Dm                     Am
He must gotten harder before he moved to Florida
Dm                           Am
Or maybe just the flame died that he turned out so high
Dm                         Am
Hey all your college kids don't do that your daddy did
    C                            Bm       Bb  Am     
Forget business management, pick up “On The Road”

[Instrumental]
Em  G  Am         Am  G  Em
Em  G  Am         Am  G  Em
Em  G  Am         Am  G  Em
C       Bm  Bb  Am     

[Verse]
Em     G Am        Am      G     Em
Beat generation    first in the nation
Em       G      Am            Am          G     Em
Dealing with an atom bomb    still can't get a handle on
Em    G    Am           Am        G    Em
But I dig Kerouac   The first to know where it's at
       G                            F#m        F       Em
And we drive into the wonder of the sad dark American night

[Outro]
G                            F#m        F       Em
Drive into the beauty of the sad dark American night
G                            F#m        F       Em
Drive into the memory of the sad dark American night

[end solo chords]
