Lyrics: 

A                              Dmaj7
Watch my back and light my way
              Fm             E        A
My traveling star, my traveling star
A                                                  Dmaj7
Watch over all of those born St. Christopher's Day
            Fm        E     A
Old road dog, young runaway
A	                      Asus4       Dmaj7
They hunger for home but they cannot stay
                  Dm
They wait by the door
		     Fm
They stand and they stare
			Dmaj7
They're already out of there
      Fm	E	     A
They're already out of there

A                              Dmaj7
My daddy used to ride the rails
         Fm       E    A
So they say, so they say
A                                   Dmaj7
Soft as smoke and as tough as nails
         Fm          E         A
Boxcar Jones, old walking man
A			Asus4	          Dmaj7
Coming back home was like going to jail
                    Dm                     Fm
The sheets and the blankets and babies and all
                           Dmaj7
No he never did come back home
  Fm       E         A
Never that I recall

Aadd9  E       Aadd9
Nevermind the wind
      E       Aadd9
Nevermind the rain
      E       Aadd9
Nevermind the road 
      E       Aadd9
leading home again
Fm      E     Aadd9
Never asking why
        E     Fm
Never knowing when
       E      Fm
Every now and then
	  E	A
There he goes again

A                                   Dmaj7
She had a cat and a dog named Blue
              Fm          E        A
My traveling star, my traveling star
                                    Dmaj7
A big old stove and a fireplace, too
               Fm    E      A
Old road dog, young runaway
                              Asus4       Dmaj7
She told me she loved me like it was true
                  Dm
I knew I should stay
               Fm
I knew I would go
            Dmaj7
Run run run away
Fm       E            A
Run run run away, boy


Aadd9  E       Aadd9
Run before the wind
      E        Aadd9
Run before the rain
      E     Aadd9
Over yonder hill
      E         Aadd9
Just around the bend
Fm      E     Fm
Never knowing why
        E     Fm
Never knowing when
        E     Fm
Every now and then
	  E	A
There you go again

A                          Dmaj7
Tie me up and hold me down
    Fm    E        A
Oh, my traveling star
                              Dmaj7
Bury my feet down in the ground
    Fm    E     A
Oh, old road dog
                       Asus4          Dmaj7
Claim my name from the lost and found
                Dm                   Fm
And let me believe this is where I belong
                 Dmaj7
Shame on me for sure
Fm             E       A   Aadd9 A
For one more highway song

Asus          Fm         E       A Aadd9 A Asus Fm E A
My traveling star My traveling star
