CAPO: 6th Fret

INTRO: C  G  C  G  C

Sitting in a motel
       G              C
On the outskirts of Raton
Am                 F
How the years have flown since Townes 
G                           Am
Passed through these hills alone

F                 C
I got someone who loves me
    G        Em      F
But it's too late to phone
        G                 C
I wanna ride this road forever
        Am   Em     C
And I'm dying to go home

INTERLUDE: C  F  G  C    F  G  C   

Out there on the interstate
    G               C
The hurrying of the cars
Am              F
High above room 28
    G               Am
The swirling of the stars

      F              C
And I draw the vinyl curtains
       G     Em       F
Like a veil across my skin
  G                C
I turn the bedside lamp down
      Am     Em   F
And I let my shadows in

                 C         G
'Cause I feel so full and
So empty handed
     F        C
In a world so cruel
        Em           F
I don't think I understand it
Are we still the fools who
G          Em         F
Don't know right from wrong
        G  C     Em G F
Here at midnight on Raton?

INTERLUDE: C  F  G  C    F  G  C   

I find a crumpled napkin
      G            C
And I fumble for a pen
Am               F
Chase a fleeting moment
        G                Am
Like it was my long lost friend

      F                  C
And I curl up 'neath the blankets
      G       Em      F
And I dream until the dawn
          G               C             Em        F
But, come morning I'll be through these hills and gone
     G               C             Em        F
Come morning I'll be through these hills and gone

OUTRO:   (## repeat 7x and fade to end ##)
