Verse. 1: F                                    F/A                              Bb     Bb/C   Bb/D  Bb/E      F      (C C Bb/D F Bb/D F)

When I was young I used to think how it would be

F                                  Am7                            Bb   Bb/C   Bb/D  Bb/E      F        A7            

Away from family friends and home

Dm       A7                                           Bb   Bb/C   Bb/D  Bb/E     F   A7

I realize it wasn’t easy or free

Dm7  G7                     Eb              F               

Out on the lonesome road

Dm7  G7   Eb                                F

 

Verse 2:

Now I am older but no wiser it seems           

I make the same mistake over and over

All I ever wanted was to follow my dreams

Out of the lonesome road

Out of the lonesome road

 

Chorus. 1:                    F                 F/G     F/A       F/C                  Bb   Bb/C   Bb/D  Bb/E   F  (C C Bb/D F Bb/D F)

Well we all spend time on the lonesome road

              F     F/G     F/A     F/C                     Bb   C   A7/C# 

We all look down it in the same way

Dm                                  A7         Bb   Bb/C   Bb/D  Bb/E      F        A7

Who would choose a life alone? 

Dm7  G7                     Eb              F

Out on the lonesome road

Dm7  G7   Eb                                F

 

Verse 3

Somewhere somebody throw the lifeline out

Just grab a hold and let it go

Who pulls it in without a single doubt?

No one on the lonesome road

 

Chorus 2:

Well we all spend time on the lonesome road

We all look down it in the same way

Nothing’s been the same since you went along 

Out on the lonesome road

Out on the lonesome road

 

Chorus 3 modulate to G:           

                       G     G/A        G/B     G/D            C   C/D   C/E  C/F#   G  (D D C/E  G  C/E  G)

Well we all spend time on the lonesome road

           G     G/A     G/B     G/D            C   C/D   C/E      D   B7/D# 

We all look down it in the same way

Em                                                 B7                               C   C/D   C/E   C/F#    G                B7

Nothing’s been the same since you went along 

Em7  A7               F                           G         Em7  A7    DM7   C7    Bb

Out on the lonesome road      

 

Verse 4 (return to original key of F):

And shall we meet again along the line?                                 

Well, I can’t see and I don’t know

This desperation’s just a waste of time

Lost out on the lonesome road

 

Chorus 4:

Well we all spend time on the lonesome road

We all look down it in the same way

Who would choose a life alone? 

Out on the lonesome road

 

Chorus 5:

Well we all spend time on the lonesome road

We all look down it in the same way

Nothing’s been the same since you went along 

Out on the lonesome road

Out on the lonesome road

Dm7             G7                 Eb                         F

Woah--oh on the lonesome road

 

Out:              Dm7          G7                                 Eb                           F

Well we all look down on the lonesome road

Well we all look down on the lonesome road

Well look down, look down, look down, look away

Well look down, look down, on the lonesome road

Well look down, on the lonesome road some day

Well look down, on the lonesome road some day

Woah--ah on the lonesome road

Woah--ah on the lonesome road
