  F
I LEFT MY HOME IN NORFOLK VIRGINIA
                 F
CALIFORNIA ON MY MIND
  G
I BOARDED THAT GREYHOUND,
                                    F
RODE IN INTO RALIEGH ON ACROSS CAROLINE
F
STOPPED IN CHARLOTTE TO BY PASS ROCKHILL
                      F
WE NEVER WAS A MINUTE LATE
        G
WE WERE NINTY MILES OUT OF ATLANTA BY SUNDOWN
                       F
ROLLIN' OUT OF GEORGIA STATE
   F
WE HAD MOTOR TROUBLE THAT TURNED INTO A STRUGGLE
                  F
HALFWAY ACROSS ALABAM
         G
AND THAT BOW BROKE DOWN
                                        F
AND LEFT US STRANDED IN DOWNTOWN BIRMINGHAM
F
RIGHT AWAY I BOUGHT A THROUGH TRAIN TICKET
                       F
GOT ACROSS MISSISSIPPI CLEAN
          G
AND I WAS ON THAT MIDNIGHT FLYER OUT OF BIRMINGHAM
                     F
SMOKIN' INTO NEW ORLEANS
F
SOMEBODY HELP ME GET OUT OF LOUISIANA
                       F
HELP ME GET TO HOUSTON TOWN

          G
THERE ARE PEOPLE THERE WHO CARE A LITTLE 'BOUT ME
                           F
AND WON'T PUT THE POOR BOY DOWN
F
GEORGIA BORN, THEY BOUGHT ME A SILK SUIT
                      F
AND PUT LUGGAGE IN MY HAND
    G
AND WOKE UP HIGH OVER ALBUQUERQUE
                         F
ON A JET TO THE PROMISED LAND
F
WORKIN' ON A T-BONE ALA CARTEE
                          F
FLYIN' OVER TO THE GOLDEN STATE
         G
WHEN THE PILOT TOLD US IN THIRTEEN MINUTES
                                F
HE WOULD SET US AT THE TERMINAL GATE
F
SWING LOW CHARIOT, COME DOWN EASY
                     F
TAXI TO THE TERMINAL DOOR
G
CUT YOUR ENGINES AND COOL YOUR WINGS
                              F
AND LET ME MAKE IT TO THE TELEPHONE
F
LOS ANGELES, GIVE ME NORFLOK VIRGINIA
                     F
TIDEWATER FOUR TEN O NINE
             G
TELL ALL THE FOLKS BACK HOME

IT'S THE PROMISED LAND CALLIN'
                           F
AND THE POOR BOY IS ON THE LINE
