Dm                     Gm
I hit the road in a '52 Ford
C
A pack of matches
        Dm
And a postcard on the dashboard
Dm           
The sun was set
Gm
The gas gauge was low
C                 Dm
And it was time to go

Dm                     Gm
I met the girl at a juke joint on the fly
C                                  Dm
Needed a friend the day my mother died
Dm                          Gm
Her place was hot and it smelled of sin
C                                    Dm
I guess when one life goes another begins

Gm        Dm
Hey now, what you gonna do?
A
Got a fiver in your pocket
Dm
And a switchblade in your boot
Gm        Dm
Hey now what you gonna say
A               Dm
To make it go away?

Dm                       Gm
I found the city by the mark on the stamp
C                      Dm
Studied it under the light of a hotel lamp
Dm                    Gm 
I found his work, I found their home
C                  Dm
I waited until I knew she was alone
Dm                       Dm
I didn't want the child to see life
C                     Dm
I justified that it wounded my pride
Dm                    Gm
My mind was set that no one could know
C               Dm
The girl had to go

Gm        Dm
Hey now, what you gonna do?
A                  
Got a fiver in your pocket
Dm
And a switchblade in your boot
Gm        Dm
Hey now what you gonna say
A              Dm
To make it go away?

Gm         Dm
Hey now, what you gonna do?
A
Got a fiver in your pocket
Dm
And a switchblade in your boot
Gm       Dm
Hey now what you gonna say
A               Dm
To make it go away?

Dm
Light stumbled in
           Gm
Through a crack in the shades
C                     Dm
Reflected off of the edge of my blade
Dm
As I reached for the girl
Gm
With the knife in my hand
C                             Dm
I thought "I guess the kid deserves a chance"
Dm                     Gm
Her man came in as I started to go
C                    Dm
My last intentions; how could he know?
Dm                    Gm
The blade sunk deep into my skin
C                      Dm
I guess when one life goes another begins

Dm Dm Fm Fm riff based on the open Dm
