Chords and lyrics

difficulty: beginner



                [INTRO] Am Em Am Em Am Em D Em

[Verse]

Am                                         Em

Used to have a town but the factory moved away

Am                                            Em

Down to Mexico where they work for hardly any pay

Am                                               Em

Used to have a country but they sold it down the river

          D                                          Em

Like a repossessed farm auctioned off to the highest bidder

[Chorus]

        G                                Em     D               Em 

Mighty trucks of midnight moving on...       ....Moving on

        G                                Em     D               Em 

Mighty trucks of midnight moving on...       ....Moving on

[Verse]

       Am                                                     Em

Wave a flag, wave the bible, wave your sex or your business degree

Am                                               Em 

Whatever you want -- but don't wave that thing at me

    Am                                 Em 

The tide of love can leave your prizes scattered

             D                                          Em 

But when you get to the bottom it's the only thing that matters

[Chorus]

        G                                Em     D               Em 

Mighty trucks of midnight moving on...       ....Moving on

        G                                Em     D               Em 

Mighty trucks of midnight moving on...       ....Moving on

[Verse]

      Am                                            Em

I believe it's a sin to try and make things last forever

     Am                                              Em 

Everything that exists in time runs out of time some day

Am                                        Em 

Got to let go of the things that keep you tethered

D                                              Em
