E A A passenger traveling quietly conceals himself B E With a magazine and a sleepless pillow E A Over the crest of the mountain the moon begins its climb B E And he wakes to find he's in rolling farmland Am E The farmer sleeps against his wife Am G C Em He wonders what their life must be Am G A Trailways bus is heading south F B7 E Into Washington, D.C. E A A mother and child, the baby maybe two months old B E Prepare themselves for sleep and feeding. E A The shadow of the Capitol dome slides across his face B E And his heart is racing with the urge to freedom. Am E The father motionless as stone, Am G C Em A shepherd resting with his flock, Am G The Trailways bus is turning west F C G D Dallas via Little Rock. E A O my darling, darling Son B E The desert moon is my witness. E A I've no money to come East, B E But I know you'll soon be here D G We pull into downtown Dallas by the side of the grassy knoll A D Where the leader fell and a town was broken. D G Away from the feel and flow of life for so many years A D D7 He hears music playing and Spanish spoken E A The border patrol outside of Tucson boarded the bus B E Any aliens here? You better check with us, E E How about you son? You look like you got Spanish blood. B E Do you 'Habla Ingles,' and I understood. Am E Yes, I am an alien, from Mars. Am G C Em I come to Earth from outer space. Am G And if I traveled my whole life F C G You guys would still be on my case F C G You guys would still be on my case Am G But he can't leave his fears behind, Am G C Em He recalls each fatal thrust Am G The screams carried by the wind, . F C G Phantom figures in the dust F C G Phantom figures in the dust F C G Phantom figures in the dust.
