B G#m7Watch my back and light my way
C#m7 E/F#My traveling star, my traveling star
B G#m7Watch over all of those born St. Christopher's Day
C#m7 E/F# GdimOld road dog, young runaway
G#m7 F#m7 A/BThey hunger for home but they cannot stay
E A7They wait by the door
G#m7They stand and they stare
Fdim E/F#They're already out of there
They're already out of there
B G#m7My daddy used to ride the rails
C#m7 E/F#So they say, so they say
B G#m7Soft as smoke and as tough as nails
C#m7 E/F# GdimBoxcar Jones, old walking man
G#m7 Fm7b5 F#m7 A/BComing back home was like going to jail
