Turn The Page

On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha Em
You can listen to the engines D
moanin' Out its one note song
You can think about the woman or the girl A
You knew the night before Em

But your thoughts will soon be wandering Em
The way they always do
When you're ridin' sixteen hours D
And there's nothin' much to do
And you don't feel much like riding A
You just wish the trip was through Em

Here I am, On the road again D Em
There I am, Up on the stage D Em
There I go, Playin' star again D A
There I go, Turn the page C D Em

So you walk into this restaurant Em
Strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you D
As you're shaking off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you A
But you just want to explode Em

Yeah, most times you can't hear 'em talk Em
But other times you can
All the same old clichés: D
"Is it woman? Is it man?"
And you always seem outnumbered A
You don't dare make a stand
Make your stand Em


Out there in the spotlight, you're a million miles away Em
Every ounce of energy, you try and give away D
As the sweat pours out your body, A
like the music that you play Em

Later in the evenin' as you lie awake in bed Em
With the echoes of the amplifiers ringin' in your head D
You smoke the day's last cigarette A
Rememberin' what she said Em
What she said
