B  G#m7  C#m7  E/F#     B   G#m  
E   C#m7  E/F#

Lyrics:

B				G#m7
Watch my back and light my way
 C#m7             E/F#
My traveling star, my traveling star
B				               G#m7
Watch over all of those born St. Christopher's Day
C#m7		  E/F#    Gdim
Old road dog, young runaway
G#m7	                      F#m7       A/B
They hunger for home but they cannot stay
E                 A7
They wait by the door
		         G#m7
They stand and they stare
			Fdim          E/F#
They're already out of there

They're already out of there

B				G#m7
My daddy used to ride the rails
 C#m7       E/F#
So they say, so they say
B		           G#m7
Soft as smoke and as tough as nails
C#m7		  E/F#    Gdim
Boxcar Jones, old walking man
G#m7	       Fm7b5         F#m7       A/B
Coming back home was like going to jail
 E                 A7                    G#m7
The sheets and the blankets and babies and all
 	           Fdim      E/F#
No he never did come back home
          Gdim
Never that I recall


G#m7   C#/D#   G#m7
Nevermind the wind
      C#/D#      Emaj7
Nevermind the rain
      F#       B
Nevermind the road
     A#m7
leading home again
G#m7    Fm7b5   F#m7
Never asking why
       B7
Never knowing when
 E     D#m7     C#m7
Every now and then
	    E/F#
There he goes again

Interlude:   B  G#m7  C#m7  E/F#
             B  G#m  E D#m7 C#m7 E/F#


B				G#m7
She had a cat and a dog named Blue
C#m7             E/F#
My traveling star, my traveling star
 B			       G#m7
A big old stove and a fireplace, too
C#m7		  E/F#    Gdim
Old road dog, young runaway
G#m7	                        F#m7       A/B
She told me she loved me like it was true
E                 A7
I knew I should stay
               G#m7
I knew I would go
         Fdim   E/F#
Run run run away
           Gdim
Run run run away, boy


G#m7   C#/D#   G#m7
Run before the wind
      C#/D#      Emaj7
Run before the rain
      F#
Over yonder hill
B       A#m7
Just around the bend
G#m7    Fm7b5     F#m7
Never knowing why
       B7
Never knowing when
E     D#m7     C#m7
Every now and then
         E/F#
There you go again

B              G#m7
Tie me up and hold me down
C#m7  E/F#
Oh, my traveling star
 B			   G#m7
Bury my feet down in the ground
C#m7 E/F# Gdim
Oh, old road dog
G#m7	   Fm7b5         F#m7       A/B
Claim my name from the lost and found
E            A7 				 G#m7
And let me believe this is where I belong
         Fdim     E/F#
Shame on me for sure

For one more highway song

B  G#m7

C#m7  	       E/F#
My traveling star, My traveling star


B   G#m

E   B/D#  C#m7  E/F#     B



I'm pretty positive these chords are correct. I left out a few walked bass lines that 
were not necessary. But I hope you enjoy this excellent song. :)
