Route 23

	  		
Intro: D F#m G A D 


Verse 
D                                      G            D 
Well I spent my whole life since I was high as a knee 
     D                               A 
By that two-lane blacktop they call Route 23 
     D 
My daddy ran a service station 
         G               D 
And the pumps they did shine 
      D                    F#m                 G               D 
I'd watch him wash the windshields, keep the old look to that mind 


Verse 
           D                           G         D 
Well the days they were long, but the money was good 
    D                                                   A 
The only things that changed were the seasons and the shapes of the hoods 
          D                               G    D 
'Til the government came on the radio in late '55 
          D                         F#m  
Said the state's gonna build a new highway 
            G               D 
One that's fast, smooth and wide 

tabchorus
G Bm D With that new highway, no one stops here anymore D G D A And you can't make living without swinging that door D G D The sign by the roadside still says "Come On In" F#m G D But the bulbs are long since burnt out, not to light up again

Verse D G D Now daddy was as stubborn as a mule in the snow D A He said, "Good folks return to the places that they know" D G D But after the gravel arrived and those steamrollers whined D F#m All those good folks left me and daddy G D And those two lanes behind
tabchorus
G Bm D With that new highway, no one stops here anymore D G D A And you can't make living without swinging that door D G D The sign by the roadside still says "Come On In" F#m G D But the bulbs are long since burnt out, not to light up again

Instrumental: D D F#m G G G A D Verse D G D Now the calendar on the wall still reads 19 and 75 D A No one crossed out the day that my daddy died D G D We laid him in the ground 'neath that old sycamore tree D F#m G D That shades a boarded up gas station... out on Route 23
tabchorus
G Bm D With that new highway, no one stops here anymore D G D A And you can't make living without swinging that door D G D The sign by the roadside still says "Come On In" F#m G D But the bulbs are long since burnt out, not to light up again F#m G D Yeah, the bulbs are long since burnt out, not to light up again
