     G
When I was a little kid
          C                            G
My father told me to see the world for him
   G
So I took my things
                 C                      G
And painted pink sunsets over the vast oceans
D
Send your dad a note
    C                           G
You made it, kid, you're on the road
D
Send your dad a note
    C                           G
You made it, kid, you're on the road

G
Mother, teach me about the country
                 C
Can you tell the lie
         C
From the lives that you've seen?
G
Mother, can you tell me
           C             G
Where this road is gonna lead?
     D
Just let yourself go
    C                     G
And sell your soul to the road
     D
Just let yourself go
    C                     G
And sell your soul to the road

Em             C                       G
Don't you know I was resting under the tracks
Em        C                        G
Even then I knew I would always be back
      Am                   C
And I know that this steel train 
                           G
is gonna ride on 'till the end
      Am                   C
And I know that this steel train 
                           G
is gonna ride on 'till the end

G
Blue skies and desert rain
            C                       G
I passed my life by course of steel train
      G
And i ride to the end of the rail
          C                G
I tell my father of all my tales
      D
I say everything I saw
C                 G
I was thinking of you
        D
And the reason I am
C               G
Here is all because of you


Em             C                       G
Don't you know I was resting under the tracks
Em        C                        G
Even then I knew I would always be back
      Am                 C
And I know that my steel train 
                           G
is gonna ride on 'till the end
      Am                 C
And I know that my steel train 
                           G
is gonna ride on 'till the end


               Am                 C
I know there's room on this steel train 
                                  G
and we're gonna ride it 'till the end
