    Intro:  / G - - - / - - - - / D - C - / G - - - /

     

    G (2)                             C                   G

    Just about a year ago  I set out on the road

      G                             Em              C                          D

    Seekin' my fame and fortune  And looking for a pot of gold

        G                     Em                      C                            G

    Things got bad,  Things got worse  I Guess you know the tune

      G            D                 C     G     

    Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again  

     

        G (2)                                       C                   G

    I rode in on a Greyhound  I'll be walking out if I go

    G                             Em                  C                          D

    I was just passing through  Must be seven months or more

    G                              Em      C                                 G

    Ran out of time and money  Looks like they took my friends

    G              D                  C     G

    Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again 

     

    / G - - - / - - - - / C - - - / G - - - /

    / G - - - / - - - - / D - C - / G - - - /

     

            G (2)                             C                        G

    The man from the magazine  Said I was on my way

     G                             Em        C                           D

    Somewhere I lost connection  Ran out of songs to play

     G                            Em                     C                                  G

    Came into town on a one night stand  Looks like my plans fell through

    G              D                  C     G

    Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again

     

    Key Change:

    / D (hold) - - - / A (hold) - - - / E (hold) - - - / A - - - / - - - - /

     

    A                                  D                  A

    If I only had a dollar  For every song I sung

            A                 F#m                   D                       E

    And everytime I had to play  While people sat there drunk

              A                        F#m         D                   A

    You know I'd catch the next train  Back to where I live

      A           E                    D   A           

    Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again         

      A            E                   D   A           

    Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again
