Intro: Em

     Em
On a long and lonesome highway east of Omaha
        D
You can listen to the engine moanin' out its one note song
        A                                                      Em
You can think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before
         Em
But your thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
          D
When your riding sixteen hours and there's nothing much to do
        A                                                               Em
and you don't feel much like writin', you just wish the trip was through

            D          Em
Say, here I am, on the road again
        D             Em
There I am, up on the stage
       D             A
Here I go, playing star again
        C  D         Em
There I go, turn the page

          Em
Well, you walk into a restaurant strung out from the road
        D
And you feel the eyes upon you as your shakin' off the cold
       A                                                        Em
You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode
     Em
Most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can
        D
All the same old cliches, is that a woman or a man?
        A                                                   Em
And you always seem outnumbered you don't dare make a stand

       D          Em
Here I am, on the road again
        D             Em
There I am, up on the stage
       D             A
Here I go, playing star again
        C  D         Em
There I go, turn the page

Em
Out there in the spotlight your a million miles away
D
Every ounce of energy you try to give away
       A                                                     Em
As the sweat pours out your body like the music that you play
Em
Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed
         D
With the echoes from the amplifiers ringin' in your head
    A                                                       Em
You smoke the day's last cigarette remembering what she said

       D          Em
Here I am, on the road again
        D             Em
There I am, up on the stage
       D             A
Here I go, playing star again
        C  D         Em
There I go, turn the page
       D          Em
Here I am, on the road again
        D       Em
There I am, up on the stage
       D             A
Here I go, playing star again
        C  D        Em
There I go, there I go
