[Intro]
| D | G/D | A G/D | D G/D |

[Verse 1]
D                     A     Asus4
 In the early morning rain
A       G/D          D      G/D
 With a dollar in my hand
D                     Em7/D 
 With an aching in my heart
Em7/D                   D    Dsus4
 And my pockets full of sand
D                         G/D 
 Now, I'm a long way from home
A                          D   Dsus4
 Lord I miss my loved ones so
D                     A    Asus4 
 In the early morning rain
A       G/D      D    Dsus4
 With nowhere to go

[Verse 2]
D                     A    Asus4
 Out on runway number nine
A     G/D           D    G/D
 A big 707's set to go
D                            Em7/D 
 But, I'm stuck here in the grass
Em7/D                     D     Dsus4
 Where the pavement never grows
D                       G/D 
 Now, the liquor tasted good
A                       D     Dsus4
 And the women all were fast
D                        A    Asus4 
 Well there she goes my friend
A          G/D           D
 She’ll be going down at last

[Interlude]
| (D) G/D | A G/D | D Dsus4 |

[Verse 3]
D                        A     Asus4
 Hear the mighty engines roar
A       G/D            D     G/D
See the silver bird on high
D                        Em7/D 
 She's away and westward bound
Em7/D                        D    Dsus4
 Far above the clouds she'll fly
D                             G/D 
 There the morning rain don't fall
A                   D     Dsus4
 And the sun always shines
D                         A     Asus4 
 She'll be flying over my home
A    G/D              D
 In about three hours time

[Interlude]
| (D) G/D | A G/D | D Dsus4 |

[Verse 4]
D                           A     Asus4
 This old airport's got me down
A        G/D             D     G/D
 It's no earthly good to me
D                            Em7/D 
 Cause I'm stuck here on the ground
Em7/D                       D   Dsus4
 As cold and drunk as I can be
D                     G/D 
 You can't jump a jet plane
A                       D     Dsus4
 Like you can a freight train
D                     A     Asus4 
 So I'd best be on my way
A      G/D           D       Dsus4
In the early morning rain
D                      G/D 
 You can't jump a jet plane
A                       D    Dsus4
 Like you can a freight train
D                     A     Asus4 
 So I'd best be on my way
A       G/D           D    Dsus4
 In the early morning rain
