Intro: C 

C                            Fmaj7
I watched a Texas sunset set
Am                     G                                
Orange light fading to the smoke of a cigarette
C                    Fmaj7
With 1500 miles on the clock
Am                       G             G7               C
And 25 days to get to New York, New York

Break: C

C                        Fmaj7
Slept some in the tent, some in the car
Am                                      G
Lost count of numberless beers in numberless bars
C                                    Fmaj7
Listening to Country and Cajun radio
Am                              G             G7
Dreaming of falling in love at a junction rodeo

Chorus
F                        G                 Am
The appeal of rings and things, never held me
F                   G                       C
The road always called me back to the door
F
Lyrics light my fire, 
G
Worn hands finger-picking inspire me
Am
To play forever more
F                                    G
To follow the street lights to the music, 
                C
And sing till dawn

Break: C


C                                        Fmaj7
Countless characters and countless tales
Am                   G
Of state parks and cheap hostels
C                       Fmaj7
The ocean the river and the bay
Am                      G
All travellers are just birds of prey
C                          Fmaj7                
With no time to clear the road
Am                 G
Keep an out for the state border patrol
C                               Fmaj7
Devouring everything as we go
Am                       G              G7
Good bye Arizona, hello El Paso

Chorus
F                        G              Am
The appeal of rings and things, never held me
F                       G                     C
The road always seduced me back to the door
F
Harmonica lights my fire, 
G
Rock n rollers inspire me to
Am
Play forever more
F                                    G
To follow the street lights to the music…

Break: C, Fmaj7, Am, G x2 

C                          Fmaj7
I got weighed down in Memphis and Nashville
Am                         G
Theres too many good singers just to pass through
C                   Fmaj7
Drawing on condensed car windows, see
Am
Shes more gorgeous than Winslett 
G
But I aint no Leo
C                         Fmaj7
When a parking lots as romantic as it gets
Am                          G
And youre staying with who you meet next
C                      Fmaj7
I guess New York City will have to wait
Am
Cause Im high in Atlanta airport tryin to fit two guitars in an overhead crate

Outro: C, Fmaj7, Am, G x4
