1. The Traveling Song
   Tuning: EADGBE
Tabbed By: J_hart12


One and a two and three... E 
A E B A E


        E
Well I guess if my daddy hadn't brought me up 

Down a long dirt road in a pickup truck 
      A                             E
I'd feel alright, 'neath the city lights 
        B               A                   E
Couldn't leave the city lights it just ain't right 

        E
I was born out west of Cheyenne town 

While my ma and pa was ramblin' 'round 
         A                          E
I'm a rambler too, but I'm country bound 
       B              A              E
I'll travel till my country home is found 

            A
And I will travel (Ooh)
            E
Yeah, I will travel (Ooh)
         B              A              E
I will travel 'till my country home is found 


Interlude: A E B A E

     E
Well a country song on the radio 

Country star but what do you know 
       A                        E
He's a city boy singin country tunes 
      B            A               E
I'm a country boy with those city blues 

         A
So I will travel 
          E
Yeah I will travel 
     B                A                 E
I will travel 'till my country home is found 


Interlude: A E (2x) B A E         

A
Well Chestertown (lets go)
E
Charlestown (let's go)
B
Albany (lets go)
A
Neptune (lets go)
E
Pittsburgh (let's go)
B
Cleveland town (let's go)
 

[Repeat A E B E 2x]

E 
I've got the wheels to ride and the wheels to run, 

Some say I got ramblin' in my blood 
      A                      E
No pretty girl can slow me down 
       B              A                  E
I'll travel 'till my country home is found 

          A
So I will travel 
        E
I will travel 
        B              A                E
I will travel till my country home is found 
               A
Yeah, I will travel 
        E
I will travel 
        B                A               E
I will travel 'till my country home is found

2. Love Like the Movies
   Tuning: EADGBE
Tabbed By: Farting_bear



 G             D             G
So you want to be in love like the movies 
       G                  D              G
But in the movies they're not in love at all 
           Em               D
And with a twinkle in their eyes 
Bm                        C
They're just saying their lines 
       G          D             G
So we can't be in love like the movies 


           Bm          C               G 
Now in the movies they make it look so perfect 
           Bm                 C                        G
And in the background they're always playing the right song 
           Bm             C             G
And in the ending there's always a resolution 
   Bm            C              G   D     C
But real life is more than just two hours long 


       G             D             G
So you want to be in love like the movies 
       G                  D              G
But in the movies they're not in love at all 
           Em               D
And with a twinkle in their eyes 
Bm                        C
They're just saying their lines 
       G          D             G
So we can't be in love like the movies


             Bm               C             G 
Well you can freeze frame any moment from a movie 
           Bm               C                      G 
Or run the whole damn thing backwards from reel to reel 
       Bm                  C                   G 
But I don't see one single solitary light technician 
    Bm        C              G   D   C 
Or one single camera in this moonlit field 


        G             D             G
I don't want to be in love like the movies 
         G                  D              G
Cause in the movies they're not in love at all 
       Em               D
With a twinkle in their eyes 
Bm                        C
They're just saying their lines 
       G          D             G
So we can't be in love like the movies

3. Sorry Man
   Tuning: EADGBE
Tabbed By: Macheeoo



C         G           C
Your mama doesn't like me
                 C  G  F
She thinks I'm a sorry man
C                  G            C
When she tells her friends about me
               C  G  F
She says I'm a sorry man
C
And she asks you each day
G             C            C G  F
Why would you stay with a sorry man
C 
Well I was doing my best
G              C                C  G  F
Just trying to impress, still a sorry man
G            C             F
And I've got news for your ma
        G        C    F
I'm the best she ever saw
G            C          F      G       F
No one could love your daughter like I do


Your mama told you father
She said I'm a sorry man
So he told me not to ever
Come back here again
So I told your dear old daddy
That he can't keep us apart
Because it's you and not your parents
Who can break my heart
And I've got news for your ma
I'm the best she ever saw
No one could love your daughter like I do

Well I tried to tell your mama
But I didn't want to fight
Well they'll be the same tomorrow
So we're leaving here tonight
Tomorrow they'll be waking
To a sad sorry dawn
And then they'll be sorry
When they see that we're gone
Cause I've got news for your ma
I'm the best she ever saw
No one could love your daughter like I do

And helps all people when he can
                    F              C
But me and God don't need a middle man


Now I found God in a soft woman's hair
A long days work and a good sittin chair
The ups and downs on the treble clef lines
And five miles to go on an interstate sign


C  G   C  G   C   G
My God my God and I
      F             C
Don't need a middle man


Now I found God in a soft woman's hair
A long days work and a good sittin chair
The ups and downs on the treble clef lines
And five miles to go on an interstate sign

Now I don't doubt that the Good Book is true
But what's right for me may not be right for you
So church on Sunday I stand beside
For all the hurtin people with the fear in their eyes

And I thank the Lord for the country land
And just like Paul I thank Him for my hands
But I don't know if my soul is saved
Cause sometimes I use curse words when I pray

You always said that I was lying
That I was just a selfish man
But I all ready gave it all away
So you can let go of my selfish hand

So bye bye bye bye bye
I ain't got time to watch you cry
Cause I've been drinking seven hours now
Sympathy is a waste of my high

And I would like to say it hurts me (but it don't)
That I don't know just what to do (but I do)
But it don't hurt when you're just killing time
I was killing time and I think that you knew

And he's sleeping in my place
G     
Somebody get my shotgun
      C
Gonna shoot him sure as rain

You can run as fast as you want to boy
     D                 G
I'll kill you just the same


Somebody get my pocket blade
Gonna cut him don't you know
You can try to hide all you want to boy
There ain't nowhere to go
Somebody get my shotgun
Somebody get my blade
Sally's been layin' with another man
And he's sleeping in my place

Now Sally don't go thinkin'
That you got off so clean
I'd kill you too if I had the nerve
But I just ain't that mean
So I go and get my murder tools
I throw them in the lake
Gonna steal me an automobile
And drive so far away
Now I am a fugitive
I'm always on the run
Sally told the policeman
Exactly what I'd done
I went and got my shotgun
I went and got my blade
Killed poor Sally's lover
And I put him in the grave.

Now all you ramblin' fellas
You listen close to me
That woman gonna bring you pain
Your heart is gonna bleed
But it ain't worth the trouble
The sufferin' or the grief
A bleeding heart is better than the penitentiary
I killed Sally's lover
One dark and dreary day
Sally got another
And I got sent away
Somebody get my shotgun
Somebody get my blade
Sally's been laying with another man
And I set him in his grave

Well neither did I 

(keep using the same chords as you play the next three stanzas)

I've never been too good at readin' in between the lines 
So babe spell it out but you don't have to shout when you're talking to me 
Do you care? 
Are you there? 
Well neither am I 

Don't lock your door everyone is poor between the lines 
And I could never steal the sadness you feel when your changing you mind 
Oh my dear 
Can you hear? 
Well neither can I 

I want to live and I want you to live happy and free 
But I don't know how to seperate the now from what used to be 
Will you sleep? 
Not a wink 
Well neither will I

I'll be there by morning's light


C
But I don't have an answer

For when you ask me why
Am                            C

I've got an old Ford pickup truck
             D
I got a Cadillac
                       G
And I don't care how I get there

Transportation can't hold me back


C
But I don't have an answer
G
For when you ask me why
Am                            C

Gonna let you ever say goodbye
C                D    G
Say goodbye, Say goodbye

NO PLAYING HERE!
Cause I've had bad lovers, yeah
That walked to my back door
I've wasted years walkin' for them gals
That's how I know you're worth walking for

                   G
So you say you're so in love
               D
Well baby so am I
                        G
And I don't care if I'm on the road
     C      D       G
I am always by your side

C
But I don't have an answer
G
For when you ask me why
Am                           C                                  
I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
G                      D
Gonna let you ever say goodbye

Just begging me to stay

You're the smoke in our lights as we sped away

To catch the moonlight on the graves


Solo:
PLAY VERSE CHORDS

You're not a girl, you're a waltz

You're a canopy bed

You're June to August

You're the back and forth sway of the hammock all day
