difficulty: expert



                                  G

I always take the back roads

          G

Leave the traffic to everyone else

Em      D        C

I can't take the clamor of the crowd

     C        C/B    D

I'll take the scenic route

             G

Talkin' on tomorrow

G

Tonight's only halfway done

  Em        D     C        

I never was to be hurried about

C       C/B       D

Please, just slow down

      C                 C/B            Am

And I know we all start out with bad directions

C                   C/B               Am

Don't give up, 'til now we've made it through

          Bm                  Em

'Cause it makes you more like them

        Bm                   Em

When you give them what they want

    Bm      A#m    Am

The need to please them

      D

Is to belong

                G

Boom box on the dashboard

    G

St. Christopher on a chain

Em      D           C  

Head up north, back east, down south

    C          C/B     D

Out West we'll drive it down

              G

Roads turn to gravel

G       

Some are paved quite well

         Em      D               C

Some are even at odds with their address now

C           C/B   D

Caught in a roundabout

      C                 C/B            Am

And I know we all start out with bad directions

C                   C/B               Am

Don't give up, 'til now we've made it through

          Bm                  Em

'Cause it makes you more like them

        Bm                   Em

When you give them what they want

    Bm      A#m    Am

The need to please them

                  D

Is just what they want

Solo:

G     G    G    G

Em    D    C

C     C/B  D

                   G

Take the road less traveled

    G

And fold all the maps away

       Em          D          C

Put it all in that unfinished novel someday

  C        C/B D

A postcard, anyway

D

Anyway...

      C                 C/B            Am

And I know we all start out with bad directions

C                C/B            Am

We get lost, somehow we make it through

         C               C/B

'Cause I may not know my streets

              Am

But I know my directions

     C                 C/B            D

Come on, we'll go out across these avenues

End on:
