[Verse 1]
          C
They were hiding behind hay bales
          F               C          C/G
They were planting in the full moon
         C     Gsus4/B  Am7     C/G       F     G
They had given all they had for something new
        C
But the light of day was on them
           F                 C        C/G
They could see the thrashers coming
        C     Gsus4/B    Am7     C/G     F     G
And the water shone like diamonds in the dew

F                G
  And I was just getting up
        C                F
Hit the road before it's light
F                   G           C   C Cmaj7 C  Cmaj7 C C
 Trying to catch an hour on the sun
       F                   G
When I saw those thrashers rolling by
        C                   Am   C
Looking more than two lanes wide
      Dm7                            G
I was feelin' like my day had just begun


[Verse 2]
          C
Where the eagle glides ascending
           F/A           C       C/G
There's an ancient river bending
         C        Gsus4/B  Am7    C/G
Down the timeless gorge of changes
      F              G 
Where sleeplessness awaits
  C
I searched out my companions
         F /A            C       C/G
Who were lost in crystal canyons
         C       Gsus4/B  Am7     C/G         F             G
When the aimless blade of science slashed the pearly gates

       F               G
It was then I knew I'd had enough
          C               F
Burned my credit card for fuel
F                        G                 C    C   Csus2 C
 Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
       F                     G
With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
       C        Cmaj7 Am  C
And my suitcase in my hand
      Dm7                                G
How I lost my friends I still don't understand


[Verse 3]
C
They had the best selection
          Fadd9/A          C
They were poisoned with protection
          C       Gsus4/B   Am7    C/G
There was nothing that they needed
F               G 
Nothing left to find
          C              Csus2 C
They were lost in rock formations
     F/A               C       C/G
Or became park bench mutations
       C             Gsus4/B Am7      C/G
On the sidewalks and in the  stations
          F        G 
They were waiting, waiting

F                    G
  So I got bored and left them there
          C                  F
They were just deadweight to me
F                G                 C    C   Csus2 C
 Better down the road without that load
F                          G
 Brings back the time when I was eight or nine
      C           Cmaj7    Am  C
I was watchin' my mama's T.V
            Dm7                          G
It was that great Grand Canyon rescue episode


[Verse 4]
          C
Where the vulture glides descending
      F               C        C/G
On an asphalt highway bending
       C       Gsus4/B Am7    C/G
Thru libraries and   museums
F            G 
Galaxies and stars
         C    Csus2     C
Down the windy halls of friendship
       F                   C        C/G
To the rose clipped by the bullwhip
      C      Gsus4/B Am7     C/G        F               G
The motel of lost companions waits with heated pool and bar

F                G
  But me I'm not stopping there
       C       Cmaj7   F
Got my own row left to hoe
F             G                    C    C   Csus2 C
 Just another line in the field of time
F                         G
  When the thrasher comes I'll be stuck in the sun
         C   Cmaj7    Am       C
Like the dinosaurs in shrines
         Dm7                                   G
But I'll know the time has come to give what's mine
