Verse 1:
F
We're still in Wisconsin
Am
As far as I know
Dm
Today was Green Bay
    Gm
And tomorrow's Chicago
C
Wish I was lying
                Gm
But there isn't much to report
Bb
My phone is dying
        F
So I've got to keep it short
 
Chorus 1:
F                 Am   Dm
I just wanted to say...hey
         Gm             C
I've been writing you a road song
         Am        Dm
It's a cliche, but hey
     Gm              C
That doesn't make it so wrong
        Am                      Dm
And in between the stops at the Cracker Barrel
    Gm            C
And forty movies with Will Ferrell
  Am              Dm         Gm
I need some way to occupy my time
                     C
So I'm writing you a road song
  Gm        C            F Fsus4 F
I sure hope you don't mind 
        Am       D7  Gm              C      F  Fsus4 F
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh  ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh uh huh 

Verse 2:
F
I bought you a light blue
Am
T shirt last night
Dm
          Gm
But their logo's alright
C
Some kid threw a bottle onstage
          Gm
He had an arm like a pro
Bb
I know it's getting late
        F
I guess I should let you go 

Chorus 2: 
                     Am   Dm
But did I happen to say...hey
          Gm            C
I've been writing you a road song
          Am        Dm
Don't run away cause hey
   Gm                 C
I promise it won't be too long
            Am                 Dm
I know it's not what you'd call necessary
    Gm              C
And I know that I'm no Steve Perry
    Am          Dm                 Gm
But even if you roll your eyes and groan
                        C
I'm still writing you a road song
     Gm      C         F  Fsus4 F
That you can call your own 
        Am       D7  Gm              C      F  Fsus4
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh  ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh uh huh 

End: F

Cheers, and buy Sky Full of Holes!
