Cradle Of The Interstate.
Nanci Griffith.
Album: Falling From Grace (o.s.t.)
Capo: 3

Intro: G Cmaj7 F C
     G                       Cmaj7
It's crystal breaking in the light of day
         F                       C
It's the heat of the moon that's gone it's way
    G                         Em7      Em
And everybody's packing their wings to fly home
F
Leaving me here
       D                        G    Cmaj7  F  C  G
In the cradle of the interstate alone

                           Em7  Cmaj7
Fair weather friends are a damn disease
           F                C       G
They drink my wine and take my money
                                 Cmaj7
Fools are reaching for a dim spotlight shine
            F
If you want that shine
             D                      G         Cmaj7  F  C
You're gonna have to write your own damn lines
           F          C
It turns a warm heart cold
     Bm         C            G  C  Dm C  G  C  F  C
Hey, clear this road, let me by

  G                                C
I got fog in the foothills of Tennessee,
         F#
It's the Catskill mountains,
        C
And the Blue Ridge behind me,
G                     C
Topping my list of all I need,
       Dm
It's a warm cup of coffee,
                D              G  Cmaj7  F  C
And a bottle of whiskey beside me,

  G                       C
I worked so hard to build this living,
     F
In a business of hard lines,
      C
Where nobody's sharing,
G
Fools chase their tails,
           Fmaj7
For that Top 40 flight,
        Dm
Now the only friend that holds me,
       D                           G    C  Dm C
Is the cradle of the interstate at night,
           F          C
It turns a warm heart cold,
G    Bm         C            G  Cmaj7  F  C
Hey, clear this road, let me by,

     G                               Cmaj7
It's crystal breaking in the light of day,
         F                       C
It's the heat of the moon, who's gone his way,
    G                         C
And everybody's packing their wings to fly home
        F              D                         G
Leaving me here in the cradle of the interstate, alone,
     C
Lullaby...
F                      D                        G
Roll me gently in this cradle of the interstate home
     C
Lullaby...
F                      D                        G
Roll me gently in this cradle of the interstate home
     C
Lullaby...
F                      Bm            D          G
Roll me gently in this cradle of the interstate home 
    C        F    C
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh
