Knight Of The Road

Harmonica intro on F#

          F#             C#        
When mama pushed me thru daddy said my do

    Badd9
Was quite the shock

        F#             C#         Ebmaj+5/C  B
Claimed I cried like a dog bayiní at the     moon

         F#                     C#
Slung my hips about, learned to twist & shout

      Badd9
Way before I could talk

           F#         C#     Ebmaj7+5/C  B
And by the time I saw nine I started to  croon 

       [ch]C#7/G#[/ch]               G#m7
Then I beat those skins day out day in

  C#7                 G#m7
I broke my poor mamaís head

               [ch]C#7/G#[/ch]               G#m7
Couldíve fared better in school but I was cool

     B/C#             
So I joined a band instead 

      F#
Iím a knight of the road

      G#m7
Iím a bird of passage

     B                    C#7sus4  C#7
Only passing through this land

  F#7      D/F    E7-5           Ebm7
A boy born with a twinkle in his eye

      G#m7            [ch]F#/E[/ch]    E/D
And a tote bag in one hand

       Bb7sus4             Bb7-5
I Ďm a dreamer, a lover, I ainít no other

       Ebm7  A9-5      Ab7
Than a Gypsy rolliní along

      B                      B/C#
Yea I came into this world



                        
And Iíll go out with a

F#                 C#
Iím one side king, other side fool

         Badd9
I wear a straw hat for a crown

    F#                C#      Ebmaj7+5/C Badd9
The long and lonesome road is home       sweet home

     F#                    C#
So I hang my hat, wherever Iím at

            Badd9
A few loyal subjects gather round

              F#               C#   Ebmaj7+5/D  Cm9 B
And toss me a coin before itís time that        I   roam 

         [ch]C#7/G#[/ch]           G#m7
I love to put on the dog, hog the spot

     C#7          G#m7
Lord gaveth me no shame

          [ch]C#7/G#[/ch]                 G#m7
So if you donít much care for my general flair

      B/C#
Ainít none but heaven to blame 

      F#
Iím a knight of the road

      G#m7
Iím a bird of passage

     B                    C#7sus4  C#7
Only passing through this land

And a tote bag in one hand

       Bb7sus4             Bb7-5
I Ďm a dreamer, a lover, I ainít no other

       Ebm7  A9-5      Ab7
Than a Gypsy rolliní along

      B                         B/C#

        F#         [ch]C#/F[/ch]      B/D#               [ch]F#/C#[/ch]
Took my castles in Spain, my fifteen minutes oí fame

  B
I buried it six feet deep

  F#  [ch]C#/F[/ch]       B/D#           Ebmaj7+5/C    B
Along with a few choice pieces   of      at tire

           F#            G#m7      [ch]F#/A#[/ch]    
At times I take eight by tens from way back when

    Baddd9
And throw them into a great big heap

             Bb7+5  Ebm7        Ab13     C#7+9      C7+9   Bb7+5   A7-5
I watch them burn       while I dance    around the fire 

             [ch]C#7/G#[/ch]          G#m7
Cause itís a joyful thing to beat my wings


    C#7                      G#m7
And let the caged up bird go free


         [ch]C#7/G#[/ch]          G#m7
Before I turn to dust to put my trust

   B/C#
In something bigger than me

      F#
Iím a knight of the road

      G#m7
Iím a bird of passage

     B                    C#7sus4  C#7
Only passing through this land

  F#7      D/F    E7-5           Ebm7

I Ďm a dreamer, a lover, I ainít no other

Than a Gypsy rolliní along
