Tom Petty - This Old Town - Highway Companion

INTRO: G  Em  F  Em  G  Em  F  Em  A

G      C       F          Em
Living free is gaining on me
G          C           F
Can't keep ahead of my dreams
G    C    F            Em
My relief turned out a thief
G         C            F
Smooth as rocks in the stream

G                  Em
This old town is a sad affair
F           Em
You be glad you're not there
G
It ties your hands
Em
It spikes your drink
F             Em            A
I'd say more, but I can't think

G      C        F           Em
Lazy Jim took a bottle with him
G        C           F
Tried to flag down a train
G         C   
Left a note
    F                 Em
Couldn't read what he wrote
G            C        F
A light came on in my brain


G                  Em
This old town is a sad affair
F           Em
You be glad you're not there
G
It ties your hands
Em
It spikes your drink
F             Em            A
I'd say more, but I can't think

D             G
The hills are gold
C            F
Mornings are cold
D            G           C       F
Don't know a soul on the street
D            G        C        F
I keep to myself like everyone else
D        G          C        F
Nobody says much to me

G  Em  F  Em  G  Em  F  Em  A

G     C          F              Em
Go to bed, fight thoughts in my head
G           C                F
In the time between wake and sleep
G       C     F            Em
Rats to kill, contracts to fill
G       C                 F
It's on ice, but it won't keep


G                  Em
This old town is a sad affair
F           Em
You be glad you're not there
G
It ties your hands
Em
It spikes your drink
F             Em            A
I'd say more, but I can't think


G                  Em
This old town is a sad affair
F           Em
You be glad you're not there
G
It ties your hands
Em
It spikes your drink
F             Em            A
I'd say more, but I can't think

G  Em  F  Em  G  Em  F  Em  A
