intro: a, c# d, a

f#                          c#
On a sunset I-10 mile lies a body beneath a sheet
d                                                             e
The orange sky donít seem to mind but Iím on the edge of my seat
f#                                                    c#
Thereís ten thousand auto lights dead stopped in dirty Tucson heat
d                                                         a  e    f#
We crane our necks to get a glimpse, and ride on by while I nurse defeat

Nurse defeat

f#                                                          c#
Itís that same old sinking feeling, that blows on in from time to time
d                                           e
The only consolation comes tying despair to a rhyme
f#                                    c#
And knowing some are at home working, raising kids and saying prayers
d                             a            e
Unaware of modern science, they may be wrong but I donít care


a                    e
They pray for Tucson, they pray for me
f#                                        d
They pray these roads lead home and wonít take us too far

Take us too far
f#  e  f#

f#                                        c#
Well we get these years to play with and Iíve been game to roll the dice
d                                                   a   e
But lately staring in the mirror has been showing me the price
f#                                 c#
Of all the reckless toxic gambling; having my fate hang from a string
d                                                         a    e
The lonesome nights with pills and powders, the fuel I pretend helps me sing


a                    e
So pray for Tucson, pray for me
f#                              d
Pray these roads lead home and wonít take us too far
a                e
Pray for Tucson, pray for me
f#                         e
I hope your faith is what will carry me
d
If there's something past those stars


a                      b              c#        d
Cause the spell breaks every time I see those funeral cars
a                      b              c#        d
Or when they throw the floodlights on and Iím left stranded at the bar
a                      b              c#        d
I spend so many nights tempting fate with this guitar but Iím coming home


a                   e
So pray for Tucson, pray for me
f#                         d
Pray these roads lead home and wonít take us too far
a                e
Pray for Tucson, pray for me
f#                         d
Pray these roads lead home and wonít take us too far
a                e
Pray for Tucson, pray for me
f#                d
Pray for Tucson,

I hope your faith is what will carry me

If there's something past those stars

Pray for me.
