Am 002210
On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha 
        G 320033
You can listen to the engine moanin' out his one long song 
        Dsus2 x00230
You can think about the woman
                                 Am
or the girl you knew the night before
         Am 
But your thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
            G
When you're ridin' sixteen hours and there's nothin' much to do
        Dsus2
And you don't feel much like ridin',
                           Am
you just wish the trip was through

       G          Am                  G             Am
Here I am, On the road again, There I am, Up on the stage 
       G           Dsus2               F            Am
Here I go, Playin' star again, There I go, Turn the page

Am 
So you walk into this restaurant, strung out from the road 
        G
And you feel the eyes upon you, as you're shakin' off the cold
       Dsus2                                             Am 
You pretend it doesn't bother you but you just want to explode
Am 
Most times you can't hear them talk, other times you can 
        G
All the same old clich├ęs, Is that a woman or a man?
        Dsus2                                             Am
And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand 

       G          Am                  G             Am
Here I am, On the road again, There I am, Up on the stage 
       G           Dsus2               F            Am
Here I go, Playin' star again, There I go, Turn the page

Am 
Out there in the spotlight, you're a million miles away 
      G
Every ounce of energy, you try to give away 
       Dsus2                                                Am
As the sweat pours out your body, like the music that you play
Am
Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed 
         G
With the echoes of the amplifiers ringin' in your head 
    Dsus2                                                  Am
You smoke the day's last cigarette, rememberin' what she said

           G          Am                  G             Am
Ah, Here I am, On the road again, There I am, Up on the stage
       G           Dsus2               F            Am
Here I go, Playin' star again, There I go, Turn the page
           G          Am                  G             Am
Ah, Here I am, On the road again, There I am, Up on the stage
       G           Dsus2               F    G          Am
Here I go, Playin' star again, There I go,     There I go
