Happy Again                       

[Verse 1]

G                    D
Ten years ago I took off on the road.

Em                        C
left my old life back for adventures untold.
G                                        D
But now I'm headed back south stopped in North Caroline.
     Em                   C
I'm drivin’ this bus, not feelin’ too fine.
G
Starin' up the road
D                       Em
Prayin’ to God I see sunshine.

[Verse 2]
     G                     D
I’ll make it to Memphis in under 10 hours.
Em                     C
Picked me a bouquet of dogwood flowers,
          G
‘Cuz they remind me of my sister,
        D             Em
Who I’m hopin’ to see tonight.

[Chorus 1]
   G                        D
The wheels on my bus goin’ ‘round n’ ‘round;
Em                           C
The wheels on my bus they’re sturdy and sound.
G       D       C 
Take me back to Memphis.
G                           D
The wheels on my bus goin’ ‘round n’ ‘round;
Em                            C
The wheels on my bus they’re sturdy and sound.
G       D          Em
Take me back to my sister.

[Verse 3]
G                          D
My mamma caught a cold out workin the fields,  
      Em                         B7
But somthin’ went wrong that the doctor can’t heal.
   G
Bus full o’people - ‘n I can
D              Em
Barely hold my head up.
        
[Verse 4]
G                             D
‘Cuz down there in Memphis is my little sis,
        Em                   C
She’s lonely and scared ‘cuz she’s only six.
            G
She’s been alone for a whole day
           D             Em
Since they took my mamma away.

[Chorus 2]
       G                     D
So I’m pushin this engine as fast as I can,
Em                          C
Shiftin them gears with my quick right hand.
G       D          C
Take me back to Memphis.
       G                     D
So I’m pushin this engine as fast as I can,
Em                         C
Shiftin them gears with my quick right hand.
G       D           Em
Take me back to Memphis.
[Verse 5]
G                        D
I kept for her a bottle, all this time,
Em
Rose pedal perfume -
       C
it’s a weakness of mine.
    G                         D               Em
My mamma used to wear it, but now it’s for my sister.

[Verse 6]
      G                     D
In five years time we’ll be happy again, ‘Cuz
        Em
I’m the one who fixes problems,
            C 
That’s the way it’s always been.
 G
Dance with me, darling,
 D             B7
Stand up on my toes.

[Chorus 3]
       G                     D
So I’m pushin this engine as fast as I can,
Em                          C
Shiftin them gears with my quick right hand.
G       D       Em
Take me back to Memphis.
     G                 D
This one way trip will be my last.
     Em               C
The life I lived is a bygone past.
G       D       Em           
Take me home to Memphis.

G    D    Em    C
G    D    Em
