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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Am Am Cm Cm riff based on the open Am
