Adventure On the Road

E    A           Rollin’ down the road one day.          What more can I say?

B      E         I got my lady by my side       and we’re headin’ on our way.

E    A           Up ahead the sun is low         as we are heading east.

B      E         Which means we’ve got lots of light like it outta be.

 

Chorus:

B  A    E    A great old American             adventure on the road.

B  A  B      Sometimes it seems to me      we are born to roam

E    A         with or without a map.          Like a rollin' stone.

B      E      A great old American             adventure on the road.

 

{chorus}

 

E    A           From the Sound of Seattle      up the Rockies reachin' high

B      E         over the Great Plains              where wagons used to ride.

E    A           Now highways connect it all and eastward we our bound

B      E         'til we swim in the Atlantic    and hear another ocean's sound.

 

{chorus}

 

E    A           It don't matter where you're from      we all need to roll

B      E         and maybe the best things                  how you feel when you get home

E    A           but that ain't for a while.                    We still got the open road.

B      E         Let's shift into a higher gear                as our adventure unfolds.

 

{chorus}
