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
So, you walk into this 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
Yeah, most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can
        D
All the same old cliches, is it woman, is it man?
        A                                                    Em
And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand, make your 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 you're 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 echos of the amplifiers ringin' in your head
    A                                                        Em
You smoke the day's last cigarette, remembering what she said, what she said

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
        C  D           Em
There I go, turn that page
        C        D              Em
There I go, yeah yeah, there I go, yeah yeah
D Em         D  Em
    There I go
        D  Em
Here I go
        C     D            Em
There I go, woah, there I go
