[Intro]
Em


[Verse]          
     Em
On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha
        D
You can listen to the engine

moanin' out his one note song
        A
You can think about the woman
                                 Em
or the girl you knew the night before
Em
But your thoughts will soon be wandering

the way they always do
            D
When you're ridin' sixteen hours

and there's nothin' there to do
        A
And you don't feel much like ridin',
                                   Em
you just wish the trip was through


[Chorus]
(Em)       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 the star again
        C  D         Em
there I go, turn the page


[Verse]
         Em
Well you walk into a restaurant,

strung out from the road
        D
And you feel the eyes upon you

as you're shakin' off the cold
    A
You pretend it doesn't bother you
                             Em
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
And you always seem outnumbered,
                            Em
you don't dare make a stand


[Chorus]
(Em)   D          Em
Here I am, on the road again
        D              Em
there I am, up on the stage
       D                A
here I go, playing the star again
        C  D         Em
there I go, turn the page


[Interlude]
Em


[Verse]
Em
Out there in the spotlight

you're a million miles away
D
Every ounce of energy

you try to give away
       A
As the sweat pours out your body
                             Em
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
You smoke the day's last cigarette,
                          Em
rememberin' what she said


[Chorus]
(Em)   D          Em
Here I am, on the road again
        D              Em
there I am, up on the stage
       D                A
here I go, playing the star again
        C  D         Em
there I go, turn the page


[Chorus]
(Em)   D          Em
Here I am, on the road again
        D        Em
there I am, up on the stage
       D                A
here I go, playing the star again
        C  D        Em
there I go, there I go
