Note: the underscore line indicates a slide (ex: 5__7, Slide from fret 5 to 7)

D	    G      D	           G
Outside my window, I can hear the radio,
        D               Bm                     F#m
And I know that motor wagon’s getting ready to fly,
           A                D
Cause it's almost Saturday night.
D            G      D  			G
Bye bye, tomorrow, Jody's gone to the rodeo,
        D                  Bm                F#m
And you know some good old boys are ready to ride
            A              G
Cause it's almost Saturday night.

G                     D                             G
Gonna push the clouds away, let the music have it's way
        Em	      D		     A
Let it steal my heart away, and you know I'm-a-goin'

D		G     D		        G
Outside the ringing, the night train is bringin' me home
         D             Bm                F#m
When I hear that locomotion get ready to fly
            A              D
Cause it's almost Saturday night.
