Verse 1:(Kris Kristofferson)
          D
 	 Sherry was a waitress

 	 At the only joint in town
             G
 	 She had a reputation
                                
 	 As a girl who'd been around
          D
 	 Down main street after midnight
                        
 	 Brand new pack of cigs
            G              
 	 A fresh one hanging from her lips
                
 	 A beer between her legs
            A    
 	 She'd ride down to the river
                         
 	 And meet with all her friends


Chorus:(all together)
             G
 	 The road goes on forever
                             D
 	 And the party never ends


Verse 2:(Willie Nelson)
          D 
 	 Sonny was a loner

 	 Bolder than the rest
            G
 	 He was goin' in the Navy

 	 But he couldn't pass the test
            D
 	 So he hung around town

 	 He sold a little pot
             G
 	 The law caught wind of Sonny

 	 One day he got caught
            A    
 	 But he was back in business
                                
 	 When they set him free again


Chorus.


Verse 3:(Waylon Jennings)
          D 
 	 Sonny's playin' eight ball

 	 At the joint where Sherry works
          G  
 	 When some drunken out of towner

 	 Put his hand up Sherry's skirt
          D
 	 Sonny took his pool cue

 	 Laid the drunk out on the floor
          G
 	 Stuffed a dollar in her tip jar

 	 Walked on out the door
           A
 	 She's runnin' right behind him

 	 Reachin' for his hand


Chorus.


Verse 4:(Johnny Cash)

          D
 	 They jumped into his pick-up

 	 Sonny jammed her down in gear
          G 
 	 Sonny looked at Sherry

 	 Said,"Let's get out of here"
              D
 	 The stars were high above them

 	 The moon was in the east
             G
 	 The sun was setting on them

 	 When they reached Miami Beach
              A
 	 They got a motel by the water

 	 And a quart of Bombay Gin


Chorus.


Verse 5:(Kris Kristofferson)
          D
 	 They soon ran out of money

 	 But Sonny knew a man
             G
 	 Who knew some Cuban refugees

 	 Who dealt in contreband
          D
 	 Sonny met the Cuban

 	 In a house just off the route
          G
 	 With a briefcase full of money

 	 And a pistol in his boot
              A
 	 The cards were on the table

 	 When the law came bustin' in


Chorus.


Verse 6:(Willie Nelson)
             D  
 	 The Cubans grabbed the goodies

 	 And Sonny grabbed the jack
            G
 	 He broke the bathroom window

 	 And climbed on out the back
           D 
 	 Sherry drove the pick-up

 	 Through the alley on the side
          G 
 	 Where the lawman tackled Sonny

 	 And was reading him his rights
            A  
 	 She stepped out in the alley

 	 With a single shot four-ten


Chorus.


Verse 7:(Waylon Jennings)
          D
 	 They left the lawman dyin'

 	 They made their get away
          G
 	 Got back to the motel

 	 Just before the break of day
           D
 	 Sonny gave her all the money

 	 And he blew a little kiss
             G
 	 If they ask you how this happened

 	 Say i forced you into this
              A 
 	 She watched him as his tail lights

 	 Disappeared around the bend


Chorus.


Verse 8:(Johnny Cash)
          D 
 	 There's main street after midnight

 	 Just like it was before
           G
 	 Twenty-one months later

 	 At the local grocery store
           D
 	 Sherry buys a paper

 	 And a cold six pack of beer
              G
 	 The headlines read that Sonny

 	 Is going to the chair
              A
 	 She pulls back onto main street

 	 In her new Mercedes-Benz


Chorus.
