                "Travelin' Light" from the 1976 JJ Cale album, "Troubadour".
Standard Tuning
In the Key of F#minor/G flatminor

The song starts out in F#minor, you should prefer to listen to the song
Author's note: Please note that this is my interpretation of this song.

Verse 1
F#m              A
Travelin' light, is the only way to fly
F#m              A
Travelin' light, just you and I
A             F#m
One-way ticket to ecstasy
A         F#m
Way on down, follow me
F#m             A
Travelin' light, is the only way to fly

Bridge-There is a slight bridge/break here and after the second verse
It's played like this: B B F#m(x3), then you end on a B while playing it
a few times, then go back into the song playing like the intro, but you
can play a solo there, etc. Try to always make it your own

Verse 2

Travelin' light, we can go beyond
Travelin' light, we can catch the wind
Travelin' light, let your mind pretend
We can go to paradise
Maybe once, maybe twice
Travelin' light, is the only way to fly

This is a great JJ Cale tune, people usually go to JJ Cale for good songs, people like: 
Eric Clapton- Mustang Sally, Cocaine.  
Lynyrd Sknyrd- The Same Old Blues, Call Me The Breeze.  
Trey Presson and The Bootheel Contingent- Travelin' Light.  

Maybe you can find your own diamond in the rough, and believe me, it's out there.
