Verse 1:
F                                   Bb 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
It's midnight at a liquor store in Texas.
   F                                C7 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Beneath the neon, close up's just begun. 
       F 	  	                           Bb    G    
When a boy walks in the door and points a pistol.
         F               C7                 F 	  	  	  	      
He can't find a job, but man, he's found a gun.

Verse 2:
F                                           Bb 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
But a change of heart before there's confrontation.
          F                                 C7 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Let's the old man live and run out in the street.
       F                                          Bb     G 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
But he knows that soon they'll come with guns a blazing.
      F            C7             F 
And already he can feel a great relief.

Chorus: 	  	  	  	  	  	      
F                         Bb 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Oh how many travlers get weary,
F                                     C7 	  	  	  	     
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
F                                      Bb        G 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
    F               C7             F   	  	  	  	  	  	      
and fly like eagles out among the stars.

Verse 3: 
F                              Bb 	  	  	  	  	      
He pictures the arrival of the cruisers.
          F                           C7 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Sees that old familiar anger in their eyes.
   F                                        Bb     G 	      	  	  	  	  	  	      
He knows that when they're shooting at this loser,
           F              C7                F 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
They'll be aiming at the deamons in their lives.

Chorus: 	  	  	  	  	  	      
F                         Bb 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Oh how many travlers get weary,
F                                     C7 	  	  	  	     
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
F                                      Bb 	  	 G 	  	  	  	  	      
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
    F               C7             F   	  	  	  	  	  	      
and fly like eagles out among the stars.

Verse 4:
F                                    Bb 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
The evening news it carries all the details.
   F                             C7 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
He dies in every living room in town.
    F                                Bb     G 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
And in his home a bottle's thrown in anger.
        F                    C7               F 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
And his father cries, "We'll never live this down."


Chorus: 	  	  	  	  	  	      
F                         Bb 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Oh how many travlers get weary,
F                                     C7 	  	  	  	     
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
F                                      Bb        G 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
    F               C7             F   	  	  	  	  	  	      
and fly like eagles out among the stars.


           F               C7             F 	  	  	  	  	  	  	      
Oh-Oh, and fly like eagles out among the stars.
