Well I was found in the transit lounge of a dirty airport town

Why she laid me down in this godforsaken town

She was running too

Only mama knows

I'm passing through, I'm on my way
Em		  (Bm)
On the road, no ETA

And that is why

I need to try

Em
To hold on (to hold on)

Got to hold on

Well I never, will I ever see my father's face?
Em		 D  A  E
See my father's face
