        Dm                          C(2)
Come on baby, let's get out of this town
        Dm                         C(2)
I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
          Bb                                 Am        F
There's a chill in my bones, I don't want to be left alone
                                     C(2)
so baby you can sleep while I drive
             Dm                        C(2)
I'll pack my bag and load up my guitar
      Dm                        C(2)
In my pocket I'll carry my harp
           Bb                         Am       F
I got some money I've saved enough to get underway
    Bb           F                   C(2)
and baby you can sleep while I drive
                 Dm                    C(2)
We'll go through Tucson up to Santa Fe
    Dm                              C(2)
and Barb'ra in Nashville says we're welcome to stay
             Bb                      Am         F
I'll buy you glasses in Texas, a hat from New Orleans
           Bb                  F                C(2)
and in the morning you can tell me your dreams
           G7                                F           C
You know I've seen it before, this mist that covers your eyes
            G7                           F           C
You've been looking for something that's not in your life
     Bb                                   Am    F
My intentions are true, won't you take me with you?
    Bb           F                  C(2)
and baby you can sleep while I drive

[Instrumental]
Dsus    Dm      C   C(2)    C    
Dsus    Dm      C   C(2)    C    

[Verse]
Am      G    C
Oh            is it other arms you want to
Am    G7  C                    Bb
hold      you the stranger the lover you're free
          Am            F
Can't you get that from me?
        Dm                         C(2)
Come on baby let's get out of this town
           Dm                        C(2)
I've got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
             Bb                          Am            F
If you won't take me with you, I'll go before night is through
    Bb           F                  C(2)
And baby you can sleep while I drive

Switch chord progression to Am-F to F-Am for "I don't want to be left alone"
