The Open Road  -  John Hiatt

Intro:
|Bm      |G   D   |Bm      |G   D   |
|Bm      |G   D   |Bm      |G   D   |

Bm                G          D
Shrunken head and Mardi Gras beads
Bm                    G           D
Hanging on a rearview mirror that bleeds
Bm                      G     D
Keepin' her eyes on the open road
Bm                    G           D
No tellin' where that son-a bitch goes


|Bm      |G   D   |Bm      |G   D   |
 

Bm                         G  D 
Got her doors locked doin' 75
Bm                           G       D
Don't care to be caught now, dead or alive
Bm                  G        D
Seen enough to kill anyone's soul
Bm                      G    D
Keepin' her eyes on the open road
Bm                      G    D
Keepin' her eyes on the open road

 
    G                   A
The open road where the hopeless come
G         A
To see if hope still runs
G                           G     D    A
One by one they bring their broke down loads
    G                        A
And leave 'em where the hobo dreams are stowed
           Bm   G     D    A
Out on the open road
           Bm   G     D    A
Out on the open road


|Bm      |G   D   |Bm      |G   D   |

 
Bm                      G      D
Midnight fallin' like a bag of bones
Bm                    G         D
Weighted down now the rest with stones
Bm                       G         D
Bouncin' off a river the moon made steel
Bm                           G        D
Cracking off the chrome of a steering wheel


Bm                     G          D
Anything back there is burned and dead
Bm                     G          D
Any love they made any words they said
Bm                    G           D
Nothing to do now but drop it and roll
Bm                     G    D
Into the lights of the open road
Bm                     G    D
Into the lights of the open road

 
    G                   A
The open road where the hopeless come
G         A
To see if hope still runs
G                           G     D    A
One by one they bring their broke down loads
    G                        A
And leave 'em where the hobo dreams are stowed
           Bm   G     D    A
Out on the open road
           Bm   G     D    A
Out on the open road


|Bm      |G   D   |Bm      |G   D   |
|Bm      |G   D   |Bm      |G   D   |

 
Bm                G          D
Shrunken head and Mardi Gras beads
Bm                    G             D
Hanging on a rearview mirror on the beach
Bm                        G     D
Keepin' their eyes on the open road
Bm                    G           D
No tellin' where that son-a bitch goes


    G                   A
The open road where the hopeless come
G         A
To see if hope still runs
G                           G     D    A
One by one they bring their broke down loads
    G                        A
And leave 'em where the hobo dreams are stowed
           Bm   G     D    A
Out on the open road          (8x)


|Bm      |G   D   |Bm      |G   D   |
|Bm      |G   D   |Bm      |G   D   |

           Bm        G  D
Out on the open road           (4x)
