Throughout the song, When playing C he does a pull-off (2nd fret) to a Cadd9
Listen to the song for timing. See below:

* OPTIONAL: There is also a little riff played before the chorus (leading into *Riff1)
by a second guitar, but its just C and Cadd9 picking only one or 2 strings at a time.
again... listen to the song for the timing. its easy enough to play with one guitar and
it sounds good.


Intro: Fingerpicking C  Cmaj7

Verse 1:

C                         F             C
 Roadsinger came to town; long cape and hat.
C                 G            C            G            C       Cadd9 C
 People stood and stared, then closed their doors, as he passed.
C                              F                  C
 He strolled the empty street; kids banged on tin cans.
C                 G      C      G                       C     Cadd9 C *Riff1
 Then the panting dogs began to bark, as the roadsinger sang.

Chorus 1:

Am                G            D   F                C
 Where do you go? Oh, where do you go?  when hearts are closed
F                 Am                *G-Riff                G       
 When a friend becomes a stranger,  nobody wants to know.
Am                G            D   F                     C
 Where do you go, where do you go,  when the world turns dark,
F                 Am                 G        F         C        Cadd9 C
 And the light of truth is blown out, and the roads are blocked?

Verse 2:

C                       F                        C
 He stopped by a store,  between the barrels and sacks,
C                      G       C      G              C     Cadd9 C
 A child's face peeped out and gave a smile, and ran back.
C                     F            C
 Behind a misty glass, on a window-pane,
C                G      C       G            C     Cadd9 C *Riff1
 A little finger drew a perfect heart, and a name.

Chorus 2:

Am                G            D   F                       C
 Where do you go, where do you go,  in a world filled with fright,
F       Am                *G-Riff               G    
 Only a song to warm you,  through the night?
Am                G            D   F               C
 Where do you go, where do you go,  after lies are told,
F                 Am                 G         F        C     Cadd9 C
 And the light of truth is blown out,  and the night is cold?

Interlude: (Humming and slide guitar)

C, F, C
C  G  C  G, C Cadd9 C
C, F, C
C  G  C  G, C Cadd9 C

Verse 3:

C                    F           C
 Roadsinger rode on,  to another land,
C                  G       C          G                   C      Cadd9 C
 Though the people spoke a different tongue,  they’d understand
C                              F                    C
 They showed him how to share,  and took him by the hand,
C               G       C       G                   C       Cadd9 C *Riff1
 Showed him the path to Heaven,  through the desert sand.

Chorus 3:

Am                G            D   F              C
 Where do you go, where do you go,  to find happiness,
F           Am                  *G-Riff         G
 In a world filled with hatred...  and tears.
Am                G            D   F          C
 Where do you go, where do you go,  if no one cares,
F          Am          G  F            C        Cadd9 C
 And everybody's lost,     Looking for theirs.
