Intro:   F#        Bmaj7     F#        Bmaj7 

verse 1: 

  F#        Bmaj7     F#        Bmaj7 
    A long stretch of headlights bends into I-9 

  F#        Bmaj7     F#        Bmaj7 
    Tiptoe into truckstops 

  E         Amaj7     E         Amaj7 
    And sleepy diesel riders 

  F#        Bmaj7     F#        Bmaj7 
    Volcanoes rumble in the taxi and glow in the dark 

  F#        Bmaj7     F#        Bmaj7 
    Camels in the driver's seat 

  E         Amaj7     E         Amaj7 
    A slow easy mark 


  F#        Bmaj7 

  B                   C# 
       But you ran outta gas down the a piece 

  G#m                 B 
       And then the battery went dead 

  Bm                  D

verse 2: Well, he tried to be Standard He tried to be Mobil He tried living in a world And in a shell There was this block-busted blonde He loved her - free parts and labor But she broke down and died And threw all the rods he gave her Bridge 2: But this one ain't fuel-injected Her plug's disconnected She gets scared and she stalls She just needs a man, that's all Chorus 2: It's her last chance Her timing's all wrong Her last chance She can't idle this long Her last chance Turn her over and go Pullin' out of the last chance texaco The last chance Outro: F# Bmaj7 F# Bmaj7 F# Bmaj7 F# Bmaj7 D D D D F# Bmaj7 F# Bmaj7 D D D D F# Bmaj7 F# Bmaj7 F# Bmaj7 F#
