Chord pattern is the same for the whole song: G, A, D, E7

[verse]
G              A           D              E7
When I was an astronaut I didn't have my boots, 
G              A           D               E7
When I was a coal miner I didn't know the news, 
G              A           D                E7
When I was a record store I didn't have the blues, 
   G                A                   D
I travel light and that's the life for me. 

[chorus]
G     A           D       E7
  He doesn't care where else he goes, 
G          A           D         E7
  He's not gonna take any extra clothes 
G       A        D     E7
  or extra shoes to hide his feet 
G       A           D      E7
  The ground is dirt, the dirt is sweet 

[verse]
G              A           D              E7
When I go Londontown I'll stand under a rock, 
G              A           D              E7
Until I know all the time it takes to pack a clock, 
G              A           D              E7
Then I'll flip it over, close the key, and swallow the lock. 
G              A           D              
I travel light and that's the life for me. 

[chorus]
G     A           D       E7
  He doesn't take his spoon or fork, 
G     A                D       E7
  He's seen too many eating in New York, 
G       A             D    E7
  He'll use his hands to pick and eat, 
G     A           D         E7
  The fruit he finds, he'll find it sweet 

[verse]
G              A           D             E7
When I was a waitress, I gave away my tips 
G              A           D              E7
When I was a call-girl, I gave away my hips 
G              A           D              E7
When I ran the kissing booth, I gave away my lips, 
G              A           D             
I travel light and that's the life for me 

[chorus]
G     A           D       E7
  She lives a life like abandoned wind 
  Elemental wife, fortune is her friend,
G              A           D         E7
  I smile on a planet and a river made of light, 
G              A          D        E7
  she's just a pebble on a waterfall tonight 

[verse]
G              A           D             E7
When i go to Boston I stand around in jeans 
G              A           D             E7
And save the cash for Levi's by selling black-market baked beans 
G              A           D             E7
Denim's what I like to wear it has durable seams 
G              A           D             
I travel light and that's the life for me 

[chorus]
G              A           D      E7
  She is just a genius without a thinking cap 
G              A           D            E7
  She never pays the rent, she's funny like that 
G              A               D      E7
  I don't know what she's on, she's here and gone 
G          A           D      E7
  Rides a welcome mat on a jungle cat 

[Bridge]
G              A                   D             E7
Fur's and silver chairs and shiny things are just a fuss 
G              A                   D             E7
We'll eat all peanuts that we steal from the circus 
G              A                   D             E7
We'll count the all stars and go to sleep under the bus 
G              A                   D            
We'll travel light and that's the life for us 

[Outro]
G              A           D                                      E7
We'll travel light and that's the life for us
G              A                             D      
We'll travel light and that's the life for us
