-Intro-
G G/F# G/E G2/D C G G2/D D(4)/F# (6x)


-Verse 1-
G G/F# G/E   G2/D C
I am a bus driver
G   G2/D       D(4)/F#   G
and it's four in the morning
G/F#     G/E        G2/D        C     G   G2/D D(4)/F# G
And I'm pressing out my clothes beside my bed
G/F#     G/E        G2/D   C  G         G2/D      D(4)/F#
Fourteen years been on the job and with many miles behind
G         G/F#       G/E   G2/D      C             G   G2/D D(4)/F#
Still I'm up at three thirty to make sure I'm there on time
G   G/F#     G/E    G2/D   C G G2/D       D(4)/F# G
My car gets me along just fine to and from the station
G/F#   G/E      G2/D      C     G   G2/D D(4)/F#
But my castle is this Houston Metro Bus
G        G/F#    G/E G2/D C G
My first stop is Ashbury.
        G2/D        D(4)/F#       G
And the sign's been gone for years
    G/F#        G/E    G2/D    C G         G2/D           D(4)/F#
but all the same the people wait cause they know that I'll be there.


-Chorus-
Bb2            C2       G               Em9
What would you say if I told you that I won't be by today?
Bb2          C2   D2        D2(sus)/C   D2(sus)/B
Would you say that I'm just a bus driver
  D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2    D2(sus)/C   D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
  D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2    D2(sus)/C   D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
  D2(sus)/Bb       D2  D2(sus)/C D2(sus)/B D/A
and what do I know?


-Verse 2-
G         G/F#       G/E      G2/D    C G
Well, I'm always there by five fifteen
    G2/D    D(4)/F#     G         
and lately I've been early
       G/F#   G/E        G2/D   C    G        G2/D D(4)/F#
'cause Judith likes to be in early to the bank.
G           G/F# G/E    G2/D C G    G2/D  D(4)/F#     G
And she gives me conversation and a token good for riding.
G/F#       G/E     G2/D  C G G2/D D(4)/F#
And she's hapyy all alone
G        G/F#       G/E      G2/D       C G
And then there's Charles in retail sales;
      G2/D      D(4)/F#     G 
and I hope they pay him well
G/F#        G/E       G/D2      C G G2/D D(4)/F#
for the work that young man does
G          G/F#      G/E     G2/D C G
Cause I've never seen the inside
     G2/D     D(4)/F# G
of a custom refrigerator
G/F#   G/E G2/D     C        G    G2/D
but I know he's the first and last one there


-Chorus-
Bb2            C2       G               Em9
What would you say if I told you that I won't be by today?
Bb2          C2   D2        D2(sus)/C   D2(sus)/B
Would you say that I'm just a bus driver
  D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2    D2(sus)/C   D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
  D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2    D2(sus)/C   D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
  D2(sus)/Bb       D2  D2(sus)/C D2(sus)/B D/A
and what do I know?
D2(sus)/C    D2(sus)/C D/A
         And what do I know.

-Vesre 3-
G  G/F#          G/E G2/D     C G
I wonder what they do all day,
    G2/D     D(4)/F#
and their respective works.
G     G/F#   G/E      G2/D  C       G     G2/D D(4)/F#
Suppose they give money and take money away.
G         G/F#  G/E     G2/D      C G
Still, I'm just orbiting this town
         G2/D   D(4)/F# G
with the post office my sun.
G/F#    G/E     G2/D  C G G2/D D(4)/F#
And I'm circling again.
G        G/F# G/E          G2/D     C G
And I wonder how this world would be
   G2/D  D(4)/F#   G        G/F#  G/E       G2/D  C     G       G2/D D(4)/F#
if I was never here to drive this bus around from Ashbury to Main.
G      G/F#  G/E         G2/D      C G
Suppose this town would be the same
         G2/D    D(4)/F#     G
but with one bus less exhaust.
G/F#     G/E         G2/D      C G
But that bank and retail stores,
          G2/D       D(4)/F#   Bb2
they just wouldn't be the same.
              C2            G                   Em9                 Bb2
But what can I see from the limited confines of my bus driving seat?
        C2   
Only me.


D2           D2(sus)/C   D2(sus)/B
And I'm just a bus driver
    D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2     D2(sus)/C  D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
    D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2     D2(sus)/C  D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
    D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2     D2(sus)/C  D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
    D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2     D2(sus)/C  D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
    D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2     D2(sus)/C  D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
    D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2     D2(sus)/C  D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
    D2(sus)/Bb
and what do I know,
D2     D2(sus)/C  D2(sus)/B
just a bus driver
    D2(sus)/Bb          D2
and it's time to go home.

I tried to break it up into sections where you can hear a "pause". listen to the cd, you'll see what i mean. NOTE on Solo: 2 things about this. 1st, it is my interpretation, so the fingerings might be different than Derek's, but it sounds the exact same, i checked several times. 2nd, i play solo guitar, so i have added come chord inversions where usually cliff would play, to fill it out. so sometimes there is _more_ here than on the CD. as always, mail me if you are lost. Verse 2: (Same as Verse 1) -------- Like the April Showers on the slick cement And the roads once straight have now become so bent Weaving through the trees of vain security Rounding round the hard rocks of hard morality Cadd9 G D (This time the Cadd9 G after verse is played only once) Chorus (See above) (Intro Lick is played ONCE) Bridge: ------- Em Am7 And the sacred cows Em Am7 Feed on the green Em Am7 While the least of these Em D Barre-D (10th fret) Are dying on the streets And they're crying...
