E                                  D                       A
On a grey-hound 30                 Miles  beyond           James town, 
He saw the sunset on the           Tennessee               Line
Looked at the young man who was    Riding             be - Side him, 
He said Iím  old kinda             Worn   out          in -Side
I worked my whole life in the      Steel  mills near       Gary  
And my father before me I          Helped build this       Land
Now Iím 77 and with                God as my               Witness  I 
Earned every dollar that           Passed through my       Hands.

1st Pre-chorus:
B                                A                     
My family and friends are the    Best things Iíve known through the 
Eye of the needle  Iíll          Carry them  home.

E                                  D                   A
The rain hit the old dog in the    Twi-lights last     Gleaming. 
He said son it sounds like         Rattl-ing old       Bones
This highway is long but I         Know  some that are Longer
By sun up to-mor-row  I            Guess Iíll be       Home
Through the hill of  Kentucky     ĎCross the ohio      River
The old man kept talking about his Life and his        Times
He fell asleep with  his head a  - Gainst the          Window he 
Said an honest manís pllow is      His peace of        Mind  this

2nd pre-chorus:
B                                  A
World offers riches        and     Riches  will grow wings
I donít take stock in              Those uncertain  things.

2nd Chorus:
E                               D                 A
Days turn to minutes  and       Minutes to memo - Ries, 
Life sweeps  away the dreams    We have           Planned
You are young and               You  are  the  fu-Ture  

   B                                                      E,D,A, E,D,A,

E                               D                  A
The old man a vision that 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 Iím older I can        See he was         Right

E, D,  A,
