                [Intro]
Am F  F  F  F  C  C/B*  Am  Am  G  G  G  G  Am  Am

[Verse 1]
Am                   Am              Am   Am
Man walkin‘ long the railroad tracks
C                        C*       G     G
Goin‘ some place there’s no going back
        G                         G              G   G
Highway patrol choppers comin‘ up over the ridge
    Am                 G*        Am     Am
Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge
Am                       Am               Am   Am
Shelter line stretchin‘ ‘round the corner
C               C*       G      G
Welcome to the new world order
         G                      G                G    G
Families sleepin‘ in their cars in the Southwest
   Am             G*       Am    Am
No home no job no peace no rest

[Chorus]
         F          F            F    F
Well the highway’s alive tonight
             C                    C/B*      Am    Am
But nobody’s kiddin‘ nobody about where it goes
    G                        G               G
I’m sittin‘ down here in the campfire light
Am                      G*     Am    Am    Am   Am
Searchin‘ for the ghost of Tom Joad

[Verse 2]
           Am                     Am           Am   Am
He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping bag
         C                    C*      G      G
Preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag
                     G                           G                   G   G
Waitin‘ for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last
     Am                       G    Am    Am
In a cardboard box ‘neath the underpass
      Am                    Am              Am   Am
Got a one-way ticket to the promised land
        C                        C*          G     G
You got hole in your belly and a gun in your hand
G                       G           G    G
Sleeping on a pillow of solid rock
Am                  G     Am     Am
Bathin‘ in the city aquaeduct

[Chorus]
         F          F            F   F
Well the highway’s alive tonight
C                 C/B*      Am     Am
Where it’s headed everybody knows
    G                        G               G
I’m sittin‘ down here in the campfire light
Am                   G*     Am     Am
Waitin' on the ghost of Tom Joad

[Instrumental]
F  F  F  F  C  C/B*  Am  Am  G  G  G  G  Am

[Verse 3]
Am            Am
  Now Tom said:
Am         Am               Am            Am   Am
 "Mom, wherever there’s cop beatin‘ a guy
           C              C*   G     G
Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries
                G                      G                 G   G
Where there’s a fight gainst blood and hatred in the air
Am                  G       Am     Am
Look for me Mom and I’ll be there
         Am                      Am              Am   Am
Wherever somebody fightin‘ for a place to stand
   C             C*      G     G
Or decent job or helping hand
         G                     G           G    G
Wherever somebody’s strugglin‘ to be free
Am                     G          Am   Am
Look in their eyes Mom you’ll see me

[Chorus]
         F          F            F   F
Well the highway’s alive tonight
             C                    C/B*     Am    Am
But nobody’s kiddin‘ nobody ‘bout where it goes
    G                        G               G
I’m sittin‘ down here in the campfire light
Am                G       Am    Am
With the ghost of old Tom Joad

[Outro]
F  F  F  F  C  C/B*  Am  Am  G  G  G  G  G  Am  Am
F  F  F  F  C  C/B*  Am  Am  G  G  G  G  G  Am  G* Am
