  G
I LEFT MY HOME IN NORFOLK VIRGINIA
                 C
CALIFORNIA ON MY MIND
  D
I BOARDED THAT GREYHOUND,
                                    G
RODE IN INTO RALIEGH ON ACROSS CAROLINE
G
STOPPED IN CHARLOTTE TO BY PASS ROCKHILL
                      C
WE NEVER WAS A MINUTE LATE
        D
WE WERE NINTY MILES OUT OF ATLANTA BY SUNDOWN
                       G
ROLLIN' OUT OF GEORGIA STATE
   G
WE HAD MOTOR TROUBLE THAT TURNED INTO A STRUGGLE
                  C
HALFWAY ACROSS ALABAM
         D
AND THAT BOW BROKE DOWN
                                        G
AND LEFT US STRANDED IN DOWNTOWN BIRMINGHAM
G
RIGHT AWAY I BOUGHT A THROUGH TRAIN TICKET
                       C
GOT ACROSS MISSISSIPPI CLEAN
          D
AND I WAS ON THAT MIDNIGHT FLYER OUT OF BIRMINGHAM
                     G
SMOKIN' INTO NEW ORLEANS
G
SOMEBODY HELP ME GET OUT OF LOUISIANA
                       C
HELP ME GET TO HOUSTON TOWN

          strum

          D
THERE ARE PEOPLE THERE WHO CARE A LITTLE 'BOUT ME
                           G
AND WON'T PUT THE POOR BOY DOWN
G
GEORGIA BORN, THEY BOUGHT ME A SILK SUIT
                      C
AND PUT LUGGAGE IN MY HAND
    D
AND WOKE UP HIGH OVER ALBUQUERQUE
                         G
ON A JET TO THE PROMISED LAND
G
WORKIN' ON A T-BONE ALA CARTEE
                          C
FLYIN' OVER TO THE GOLDEN STATE
         D
WHEN THE PILOT TOLD US IN THIRTEEN MINUTES
                                G
HE WOULD SET US AT THE TERMINAL GATE
G
SWING LOW CHARIOT, COME DOWN EASY
                     C
TAXI TO THE TERMINAL DOOR
D
CUT YOUR ENGINES AND COOL YOUR WINGS
                              G
AND LET ME MAKE IT TO THE TELEPHONE
G
LOS ANGELES, GIVE ME NORFLOK VIRGINIA
                     C
TIDEWATER FOUR TEN O NINE
             D
TELL ALL THE FOLKS BACK HOME
