CAPO: 1st Fret



[INTRO:] C  G  Am    G  ~ ~ ~ C

[VERSE 1:]
G           Am       D
Try to understand
                      F            C       F
I'm not your ordinary man, still I can't deny
       D7/F#
You go with me everywhere
         F                  D7/F#           C  G     C  G  C
When I'm dreaming you still share my lonely nights


[VERSE 2:]
G             Am      D
Try to see my side
                       F                C          F
It's not your ordinary pride that keeps driving me on
          D7/F#                               F
It's that lonesome, restless feeling that you feel under the gun
       C                               D7                   G        ~ ~ Am
And it leads me to the highway, but it keeps my body warm


[CHORUS:]
         D7            G              Am
And as I wander to the cities and the towns
                          G             C
I get so lonesome knowing you could be around
    Am               D7              G         Am
And when the show is over, there's a Holiday Motel
              F           E                      E7  ~ ~ C
Another empty bottle and another tale to tell


[VERSE 3:]
G            Am      D
Try to comprehend
                      F             C         F
I'm not your ordinary friend at the end of my life
        D7/F#
I would pray that I could be
  F              D7/F#           C   G    C  G  C
Returning to the shelter of your love__


[VERSE 4:]
G             Am      D
Try to see my side
                       F                C          F
It's not your ordinary pride that keeps driving me on
          D7/F#                               F
It's that lonesome, restless feeling that you feel under the gun
       C                               D7                   G       ~ ~ Am
And it leads me to the highway, but it keeps my body warm


[CHORUS:]
         D7            G              Am
And as I wander to the cities and the towns
                          G             C
I get so lonesome knowing you could be around
    Am               D7              G         Am
And when the show is over, there's a Holiday Motel
                  F           E                      E7  ~ ~ C
And another empty bottle and another tale to tell


[VERSE 5:]
G           Am       D
Try to understand
                      F            C       F
I'm not your ordinary man, still I can't deny
       D7/F#                      F
You go with me everywhere, like a shadow in the gloom
    C                                    D7
I remember all the good times, there's a ghost in every room


[OUTRO:]   (## repeat and fade to end ##)
         G  C  G
