Will Hoge
This is my first attempt at a submission, but I couldn't find this song anywhere,
so I gave it a shot.  It's a great song, hope this helps.  It sounds right to me,
but I'll apologize in advance for any errors.


F           G
Beat up and kicked around
F                F
I pick myself up off the ground.
F              G 
I head east to another town
           F
I'm movin' on.
F                   G
Bar room fights and breakin' glass  
F                   F
A broken nose and a smoker's laugh.
F                   G              F 
I'm sure I probably cut my life in half.

***CHORUS***

F                       F
With a suitcase full of empty dreams.
G             F
A guitar with broken strings.
F                   F                 G
A busted heart that longs to sing the blues.
F                  F
A mind that always leads me wrong,
G                   F
A head full of Hank Williams songs.
F          G                         F 
I'm sorry, honey, but this highway's home.

F                           G
I've loved pretty women and some that ain't. 
F                       F
I'm a burned out junkie truck stop saint,
F                      G
So check the tires and fill the tank,
           F
I'm movin' on.
F                      G
Interstate markers and highway signs,
F                   F
Eighteen wheels and thin white lines.
F                  G
Dodge a speed trap one more time,
    F
I'm gone.

***REPEAT CHORUS***
Em         F          
So hard to leave you here this way,
Em                       F
With a white dress and a goodbye wave.
Em                            F
But theres mouths to feed and bills to pay,
G
I'm sorry, honey, I've got to go.

***HARMONICA SOLO***

***REPEAT CHORUS***

***END***
