                CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: C   Dm   F    G

C                           Dm
Alice works the desk at the East Bay Hotel
   F                  G
In Grand Marais, Minnesota
C                                 Dm
I came in one night, she said, "I loved your show"
   F                     G       C
We sat and talked on the sofa


             F             G                     C
She's on her own since her husband passed away
             F                   G                    
Some surgeon screwed up, there's nothing left to say
        C                                Dm
Now she works this desk at night and the campground by day
     F                              G
In a trailer by the lake, until the summer blows away


    C                       Dm
She read about the job in a camping magazine
    F                 G
And home was just a reminder
       C                     Dm                      F
So she took the cat and dog, stored away her things
                     G         C
Left the bleakness behind her


     F               G                     C
Even now through the ache of missing him
                  F          G                    
She's filled with wonder and far from giving in
         C                        Dm
She sees magic on the lake in the early morning light
    F                                   G
And talking books and telling tales, we sat there half the night

 
CHORUS:
                   C                  F
And she said, "The more I travel, the more I wanna see
G                 C
My kids want some settled life for me
              A                       Dm       Dsus2
I don't wanna move somewhere and grow old quietly
               G           F            C
And the more I travel, the more I wanna see"


           C                           Dm
Well, it's time to make a change, with winter in the wings
        F                      G
And the East Bay Hotel made an offer
        C                                   Dm 
But she doesn't really know, 'cause there's everywhere to go
            F                              G            C
And there's everything that travelling has taught her


       F            G                   C
Moving marches down busy city streets
                       F             G                    
Fantastic people she's privileged to meet
        C                        Dm
And she dreams about Alaska, the snow so deep and white
         F                                   G
And that little town in Texas, where there's dancing every night

 
CHORUS:
               C                  F
She says, "The more I travel, the more I wanna see
G                 C
My kids want some settled life for me
              A                       Dm       Dsus2
I don't wanna move somewhere and grow old quietly
               G       F   C
And the more I travel"


CHORUS:
                        F
"The more I travel, the more I wanna see
G                 C
My kids want some settled life for me
              A                       Dm       Dsus2
I don't wanna move somewhere and grow old quietly
               G           F            C
And the more I travel, the more I wanna see"
    G            C
The more I wanna see"
