AShe had a cat and a dog named Blue Dmaj7 
My traveling sFmtar, my travelEing star 
A big old stove and a fireplace, too 
Old road dog, young runaway 
She told me she loved me like it was true 
I knew I should stay 
I knew I would go 
Run run run away 
Run run run away, boy 
Run before the wind 
Run before the rain 
Over yonder hill 
Just around the bend 
Never knowing why 
Never knowing when 
Every now and then 
There you go again 
Tie me up and hold me down 
Oh, my traveling star 
Bury my feet down in the ground 
Oh, old road dog 
Claim my name from the lost and found 
And let me believe this is where I belong 
Shame on me for sure 
For one more highway song 
My traveling star 
My traveling star
