Intro:
Bb

Verse:
Eb               Bb       Eb
Set out from Carlisle with the sun beside him
              Bb   Eb
Sinking low across an empty field
            Bb             Eb
Old moon a-rising, the first lone star a-shining
                Bb   Eb
Shadows rolling down the lonely hills

Verse:
               Bb            Eb
Run down by Lichfield and the rain it started pouring
              Bb   Eb
Water flowing up along the road
              Bb            Eb
Listen to the rumble of the ten big wheels a-turning
                Bb   Dm
Listen for the shifting of the load

Chorus:
        Cm  Bb           Dm
Knights of the road, riders of the highways
      Cm  Bb            B
Hauling the load, making it the hard way

Verse:
E             B           E
Miles cracked on by and he sang with his engines
                    B   E
The old tunes like "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine"
                 B           E
Dreaming of the girl who he'd be lying with at sunrise
                  B  D#m
Another lonely milestone passed him by

Chorus:
        C#m  B            D#m
Knights of the road, riders of the highways
      C#m  B
Hauling the load, making it the hard way

Instrumental:
E  B  E  B  E  B  E  B  E

Verse:
              B          E
Lightning it crashed and he never saw it coming
                      B    E
They found him with his hands still at the wheel
           B              E
Just another poor boy trying to keep 'em running
                B    D#m
He died lugging thirty tons of steel

Chorus:
        C#m  B            D#m  C#m
Knights of the road, riders of the highways
B
Making it the hard way
