Promised Land
-------------
Standard tuning.

Intro: C     
Ah, get on it!
  C                                                 F
I left my home in Norfolk Virginia California on my mind.
  G                                                                 C
I straddled that Greyhound, and rode into Raleigh and on across Caroline.
C                                                                   F
We had motor trouble that turned into a struggle, halfway across Alabam'.
          G                                                             C
Well that hound broke down and left us all stranded, in downtown Birmingham.
C                                                                         F
Right away I brought me a through train ticket, ridin' across Mississippi clean.
      G                                                                 C
And I was on the midnight flyer out of Birmingham, smokin' into New Orleans.
C                                                                       F
Somebody helped me get out of Louisiana, just to help me get to Houston Town.
G
There are people there who care a little about me,
                                C
and they won't let the poor boy down. Take it!
C                                                                  F
Sure as you're born they brought me a silk suit, put luggage in my hand.
      G                                                       C
And I woke up high over Albuquerque, on a jet to the promised land.
C                                                                  F
Working on a T-bone steak I had a party, flyin' over to the golden state.
G                                                                             C
Ah when the pilot told us in thirteen minutes he would set us at the terminal gate.
C                                                      F
Swing low chariot come down easy, taxi to the terminal zone.
G                                                                   C
Cut your engines and cool your wings, and let me make it to the telephone.
C                                                          F
Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia, tidewater four ten o nine.
G     
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land callin',
                          C
and the poor boy's on the line.
C                                                                  F
Working on a T-bone steak I had a party, flyin' over to the golden state.
G                                                                             C

G                                                                   C
Cut your engines and cool your wings, and let me make it to the telephone.
C                                                          F
Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia, tidewater four ten o nine.
G
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land callin',
                          C
and the poor boy's on the line.
