when the open road is closing in

intro:
A ....2.3..2....2.3..2..
E 3...........3.........
repeat

G                C         G
time - measured in dotted yellow lines has past you by
G                  C       G
and I never said an honest thing to you in all my life
   D    C
hard times go slowly
       G      D
and the good times never come
        C       G      D
the world is a motor inn in a iowa highway slum
G       D        C
when the open road is closing in
Em             D      A
and you can't say where it ends and you begin
   G        D       C          B7
when every truck stop dive's another five years off your life
G       D        C
when the open road is closing in
Em          D       A
and the dotted yellow lines begin to spin
     G       D      C         B7
when the sky begins to fall on everything you like at all
Am      D      Am  D G
you won't be coming home again

ciao you keep on drowning in the roads between the towns
now i have been closing all the shutters in the house
well i know you'll be back when every tree is turning brown
you'll find the house is empty and the swingset's fallen down
