Am Am/G AmMan walkin‘ long the railroad tracks
C GGoin‘ some place there’s no going back
Highway patrol choppers comin‘ up over the ridge
Am Am/G AmHot soup on a campfire under the bridge
Am/G AmShelter line stretchin‘ round the corner
C GWelcome to the new world order
Families sleepin‘ in their cars in the Southwest
Am Am/G AmNo home no job no peace no rest
FThe highway is alive tonight
C C/B AmBut nobody’s kiddin‘ nobody about where it goes
GI’m sittin‘ down here in the campfire light
Am Am/G AmSearchin‘ for the ghost of Tom Joad
He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping bag Preacher lights up a butt and talks a drag Waitin‘ for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last In a cardboard book neath the underpass Got a one-way ticket to the promised land You got hole in your belly and a gun in your hand Sleeping on a pillow of solid rock Bathin‘ in the city aquaeduct The highway is alive tonight Where it’s headed everybody knows I’m sittin‘ down here in the campfire light Waitin' on the ghost of Tom Joad Harmonica Break : F C C/B Am G Am Now Tom said: "Mom, wherever there’s cop beatin‘ a guy Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries Where there’s a fight gainst blood and hatred in the air Look for me Mom I’ll be there Wherever there’s somebody fightin‘ for a place to stand Or decent job or helping hand Wherever somebody’s strugglin‘ to be free Look in their eyes Mom you’ll see me" Well the highway is alive tonight But nobody’s kiddin‘ nobody about where it goes I’m sittin‘ down here in the campfire light With the ghost of old Tom Joad Outro: F C C/B Am G Am x2 Last time: Am Am/G Am
