On a Greyhound thirty miles beyond Jamestown
G2                    F9

He saw the sun set on the Tennessee line
G2                        F9

He looked at the young man who was riding beside him
G2                                 F9

He said I'm old kind of worn out inside
G2                      F9

I worked my whole life in the steel mills of Gary
G2                            F9

And my father before me I helped build this land
G2                        F9

Now I'm seventy-seven and with God as my witness
G2                             F9

I earned every dollar that passed through my hands
G2                         F9

My family and friends are the best things I've known
D                             C

Through the eye of the needle I'll carry them home
D                                  C

CHORUS:
Days turn to minutes and minutes to memories
G2                       F9         C

Life sweeps away the dreams that we have planned
G2                               F9      C

You are young and you are the future
G2                F9          C

So suck it up and tough it out and be the best that you can
   D                                                C


INTRO, TWICE, BOTH GUITAR PARTS

The rain hit the dog in the twilight's last gleaming
He said Son it sounds like rattling old bones
This highway is long but I know some that are longer
By sunup tomorrow I guess I'll be home

Through the hills of Kentucky 'cross the Ohio River
The old man kept talking 'bout his life and his times
He fell asleep with his head against the window
He said an honest man's pillow is his peace of mind

This world offers riches and riches will grow wings
I don't take stock in those uncertain things

CHORUS

INTRO, 4 TIMES, FIRST GUITAR ONLY

The old man had a vision but it was hard for me to follow
I do things my way and I pay a high price
When I think back on the old man and the bus ride
Now that I'm older I can see he was right

Another hot one out on highway eleven
This is my life It's what I've chosen to do
There are no free rides No one said it'd be easy
The old man told me this my son I'm telling it to you

CHORUS

FADE WITH INTRO
