On The Road

	  		
C 
I left New York 
   F              C 
In nineteen forty-nine 
   G             C 
To go across the country 
          F          C 
Without a dad-blamed dime 
G  C           F          C 
Montana in the cold, cold fall 
G        C           F  G     C 
Found my father in a gambling hall 


F      C 
Father father 
G              C 
Where have you been 
     F               C 
I've been out in the world 
            G    C 
Since I was only ten 
F      C 
Father father 
G              C 
Where have you been 
     F               C 
I've been out in the world 
            G    C 
Since I was only ten 

      F           C 
Don't worry about me 
F        G      C 
About to die of pleurisy 

F 
Cross the Mississippi 
C 
Cross the Tennessee 
G 
Cross the Niobrara 
F               C 
Home I'll never be 
F 
Home in old Medora 
C 
Home in ol' Truckee 
G 
Apalachicola 
F               C 
Home I'll never be 

    F             C 
For better or for worse 
   G         C 
Or thick and thin 
F          C              G      F C 
Like being married to the little woman 
F      C 
God he loves me 
       G    C 
Like I love him 
  F           C 
I want you to do 
         G        C 
Just the same for him 

F       C 
Well the worms eat away 
        F    G          C 
But the worrywarts will win 
     F         C 
So I left Montana 
      G           C 
On an old freight train 
    F        C 
The night my father died 
       F     G    C 
In the cold, cold rain 

F 
Road to Opelousas 
C 
Road to Wounded Knee 
G 
Road to Ogallala 
F               C 
Home I'll never be 
F 
Road to Oklahoma 
C 
Road to El Cajon 
G 
Road to ol' Tehatchapi 
F           C 
Road to San Antone 

Hey hey 

F 
Road to Opelousas 
C 
Road to Wounded Knee 
G 
Road to Ogallala 
F               C 
Home I'll never be 
F 
Road to Oklahoma 
C 
Road to El Cajon 
G 
Road to ol' Tehatchapi 
F           C 
Road to San Antone 

Home I'll never be
