    Intro Riff x2

     

                     G (2)                           D (2)

    Now and then, it keeps you runnin', never seems to die.

    Bm (2)                                            C (2)

          Trail spent with fear and not enough livin' on the outside.

    G (2)                                         D (2)

       Never seem to get far enough, stayin' in between the lines,

    Bm (2)                                       C        C/B                       C

    Hold on to what you can, waitin' for the end, not knowin' when,

     

    Chorus:

    G (2)

    May the wind take your troubles away

                   D (2)

    may the wind take your troubles away

              C                              G

    Both feet on the floor, two hands on the wheel

    D                                                  G

    May the wind take your troubles away.

     

    Instrumental Chorus

     

     

     

    D (2)                                   C                           G

    Try and make it far enough, to the next time zone

    D (2)

    Few and far between past the midnight hour,

    C                         G                                 Em (hold 2 measures)

       you never feel alone, you're really not alone.

       G (2)                 D (2)

    Switch it over AM, searchin' for a truer sound

                Bm (2)                               C (2)

    can't recall the call letters, steel guitar and settle down

    G (2)                                       D (2)

          catchin' an all night station, somewhere in Louisiana

    Bm (2)                     C          C/B               C

    Sounds like 1963 but for now, sounds like heaven.
