Knight Of The Road

Harmonica intro on F#

          F#             C#        
When mama pushed me thru daddy said my do

    Badd9
Was quite the shock

        F#             C#         Ebmaj7+5/C  B
Claimed I cried like a dog bayin’ at the     moon

         F#                     C#
Slung my hips about, learned to twist & shout

      Badd9
Way before I could talk

           F#         C#     Ebmaj7+5/C  B
And by the time I saw nine I started to  croon 

       C#7/G#               G#m7
Then I beat those skins day out day in

  C#7                  Badd9
I broke my poor mama’s head

               C#7/G#               G#m7 
Could’ve fared better in school but I was cool

     B/C#             
So I joined a band instead 

      F#
I’m a knight of the road

      G#m7
I’m a bird of passage

     B                    C#7sus4  C#7
Only passing through this land

  F#7      D/F    E-5           Ebm7
A boy born with a twinkle in his eye

      G#m7            F#/E    E/D
And a tote bag in one hand

       Bb7sus4             Bb7-5
I ‘m a dreamer, a lover, I ain’t no other

       Ebm7  A9-5      Ab7
Than a Gypsy rollin’ along

      B                      B/C#
Yea I came into this world



                        
And I’ll go out with a

|F#           |G#m7          |B          |C#7sus4    C#7/B      |
 song                                               I am the
 

|F#/A#        |B/D#    F#11  |Bb/C       |E/D    C#/B           |
 Knight of the road
  

|F#             |              |           |                 |
   

F#                 C#
I’m one side king, other side fool

         Badd9
I wear a straw hat for a crown

    F#                C#      Ebmaj7+5/C Badd9
The long and lonesome road is home       sweet home

     F#                    C#
So I hang my hat, wherever I’m at

            Badd9
A few loyal subjects gather round

              F#               C#   Ebmaj7+5/C Cm9 B
And toss me a coin before it’s time that        I   roam 

         C#7/G#           G#m7
I love to put on the dog, hog the spot

     C#7          Badd9
Lord gaveth me no shame

          C#7/G#                 G#m7
So if you don’t much care for my general flair

      B/C#
Ain’t none but heaven to blame 

      F#
I’m a knight of the road

      G#m7
I’m a bird of passage

     B                    C#7sus4  C#7
Only passing through this land

  F#7      D/F    E-5           Ebm7
A boy born with a twinkle in his eye

      G#m7            F#/E    E/D
And a tote bag in one hand

       Bb7sus4             Bb7-5
I ‘m a dreamer, a lover, I ain’t no other

       Ebm7  A9-5      Ab7
Than a Gypsy rollin’ along

      B                         B/C#
Yea I came into this world 


I’ll go out with a

        F#         C#/F      B/D#               F#/C#
Took my castles in Spain, my fifteen minutes o’ fame

  B
I buried it six feet deep

  F#  C#/F       B/D#           Ebmaj7+5/C    B
Along with a few choice pieces   of  at tire

           F#            G#m7      F#/A#    F#add9  
At times I take eight by tens from way back when

    Badd9
And throw them into a great big heap

             Bb7+5  Ebm7        Ab13     C#7+9      C7+9   Bb7+5   A7-5
I watch them burn       while I dance    around the fire 

             C#7/G#          G#m7
Cause it’s a joyful thing to beat my wings


    C#7                      Badd9
And let the caged up bird go free


         C#7/G#          G#m7
Before I turn to dust to put my trust

   B/C#
In something bigger than me

      F#
I’m a knight of the road

      G#m7
I’m a bird of passage

     B                    C#7sus4  C#7
Only passing through this land

  F#7      D/F    E-5           Ebm7
A boy born with a twinkle in his eye

      G#m7            F#/E    E/D
And a tote bag in one hand

       Bb7sus4             Bb7-5
I ‘m a dreamer, a lover, I ain’t no other

       Ebm7  A9-5      Ab7
Than a Gypsy rollin’ along

Bb+5/C       Badd9                        B/C#
       Yea I came into this world   and


I’ll go out with a
