Traveling Poor Boy
By Brent Cobb
Written by Brent Cobb
Album: Shine On Rainy Day (2016)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

Capo 2

Old man in the moon, shining in my rearview
G            A         D
Leaving that Tennessee town
       G             A                   D        D/C#    Bm 
You're all I have to talk to, don't know where my dog ran off to
         E7                         A         A/G  A/F#
But he's gone and he has been for a while now

Where I'm bound, well I haven't figured it out
I'm sure I'll find my usual old wrong way
The cost to leave ain't cheap, I don't need no eat or sleep
Even if I did, I lost my job, so I don't got much pay but it's okay

         G                 A          D
Cause anymore would burn a hole in my pocket
               G            A        D
Lord I can't afford to be a poor boy broke
                     G          A            D       D/C#   Bm 
Besides this pair of jeans is already pretty tearin' at the seams
    E7                    A
The last that I need is a pant stain from a smoke
      G             A          D  
Gonna ride until my ride quits riding
               G             A          D
Then I'm gonna walk until my boots walk off
                  G                A           D       D/C#     Bm
Yes sir I'll be a sight when I get where their looking mean and light
      E7                                   A                                 D    
But tonight I'm feeling free and friendly, barely scraping change, waving goodbye

Say, old man in the moon, I hear that you get blue too
It must be lonesome way up in the sky
The stars seem mighty proud if I were you I'd hate a cloud
All they ever do is hang around and cry

Guess it ain't a shame to be rolling like a slow train
Or glowing like only you do, I'll tell you what
I'll keep right on track, if you keep shining bright like that
I bet before we know it, this journey will be through and the hard times too


Waving goodbye
