Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††† Em

Oh Lord, I am a traveling man, and my Daddy, so was he

††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

And everyday, when the sun goes down, oh my Lord, I just gotta be free

††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† B7

Listen to the sound of the falling rain; Listen to the wail of the south-bound train

††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††Am††††††††††††††††††† Em

Thatís a lonely sound; Thatís a lonely sight; Iím a lonely man in a lonely time

 

††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††† Em

A rich man has no use for me; nor have I any for he

††††††††††† †††††††††Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

Heíll judge a man by the clothes he wears; judge I a man by the burden he bears

††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††† †††††††††C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† B7

Ha Ha Rich Man! The laughís on you; You live and die by another manís rules

†††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††† Em

And when we both are dead and gone; The legend of my kindíll live on

 

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

Go play with your houses of white and wood; and live your life like you think you should

†††††† ††††††††††††††††Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

Iíll ride these rails until I die; and if I get lonesome, I just have to ride

††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††B7

Listen to the sound of the falling rain; Listen to the wail of the south-bound train

††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††† Em

Thatís a lonely sound; Thatís a lonely sight; Iím a lonely man in a lonely time
