(C7/E)           F+              F7

But I just got to see them again 
Hey thanks for stoppin' Are you headed down to Cairo? 
I wrecked my Lincoln in Saint Jo 
Why to little old Cairo? No special reason 
Look up some folks I used to know 
Me I travel some Have my share of fun 
Now that's a life a man can live 
Sure I've played and lost But who minds the cost 
You got to take more than you give 
Hey you got another cigar? Son I sure like this car 
Oh from your daddy as a gift Say on second thought 
There's gifts I haven't bought Just drop me here 
Thanks for the lift 
Yes I've travelled some Yes I've been a bum 
Never have a dime for gin Left to make my way 
Told her I can't stay To see my children poor as sin 
I know this road It leads straight into Cairo 
Twenty-two miles straight ahead 
I can't I can't walk down this road to Cairo 
They're better thinkin' I'm dead 
I been travellin' Gone a long long time 
Don't know what I'd find Scared of what I'd find 
I can't I just can't walk down this road.
