   F#m                                  Bm
We made up their minds and they started packing
     C#7                              F#m
They left before the sun came up that day
   F#7                     Bm
An exit to eternal summer slacking
    F#m                       C#7                  F#m
But where were they going without ever knowing the way?

     F#m                               Bm
They drank up the wine and they got to talking
     C#7                              F#m
They now had more important things to say
    F#7                                  Bm
And when the car broke down they started walking
F#m                       C#7                  F#m
Where were they going without ever knowing the way?

E                   A                          E
 Anyone can see the road that they walk on is paved in gold,
    F#m                         C#7
and it's always summer, they'll never get cold,
        D                         A                 E
they'll never get hungry, they'll never get old and grey
                A                 E
You can see the shadows wandering off somewhere
     F#m                         C#7
They won't make it home but they really don't care
     D                          A               E      C#7
They wanted the highway they're happier there today, today

      F#m                                Bm
Their children woke up and they couldn't find them
     C#7                              F#m
They left before the sun came up that day
     F#7                              Bm
They just drove off and left it all behind 'em
    F#m                       C#7                  F#m
But where were they going without ever knowing the way?

E                   A                          E
 Anyone can see the road that they walk on is paved in gold,
    F#m                         C#7
and it's always summer, they'll never get cold,
        D                         A                 E
they'll never get hungry, they'll never get old and grey
                A                 E
You can see the shadows wandering off somewhere
     F#m                         C#7
They won't make it home but they really don't care
     D                          A               E      C#7
They wanted the highway they're happier there today, today
