                CAPO 2
  Guitar #1:  (Repeat 4 times)
    D                   C9
 E--2-2-0-2-0-2----------0-2-0-2-0-2-(Reach with second finger)---------|

  Guitar #2:  (Comes in on 3rd repetition of above)

On a Greyhound thirty miles beyond Jamestown
D2                    C9

He saw the sun set on the Tennessee line
D2                        C9

He looked at the young man who was riding beside him
D2                                 C9

He said I'm old kind of worn out inside
D2                      C9

I worked my whole life in the steel mills of Gary
D2                            C9

And my father before me I helped build this land
D2                        C9

Now I'm seventy-seven and with God as my witness
D2                             C9

I earned every dollar that passed through my hands
D2                         C9

My family and friends are the best things I've known
A                             G

Through the eye of the needle I'll carry them home
A                                  G

Days turn to minutes and minutes to memories
D2                       C9         G

Life sweeps away the dreams that we have planned
D2                               C9      G

You are young and you are the future
D2                C9          G

So suck it up and tough it out and be the best that you can
   A                                                G


The rain hit the dog in the twilight's last gleaming
He said Son it sounds like rattling old bones
This highway is long but I know some that are longer
By sunup tomorrow I guess I'll be home

Through the hills of Kentucky 'cross the Ohio River
The old man kept talking 'bout his life and his times
He fell asleep with his head against the window
He said an honest man's pillow is his peace of mind

This world offers riches and riches will grow wings
I don't take stock in those uncertain things



The old man had a vision but it was hard for me to follow
I do things my way and I pay a high price
When I think back on the old man and the bus ride
Now that I'm older I can see he was right

Another hot one out on highway eleven
This is my life It's what I've chosen to do
There are no free rides No one said it'd be easy
The old man told me this my son I'm telling it to you
