You’ve been [C]sleeping in the [G]rai[D(F#)]n,
[G] [G(F#)] [C] [G]
Your [C]clothes are [G]smeared and [D(F#)]stained,
But the [G]dirty [G(F#)]words and [C]muddy [G]cells
Will [C]soon be [G]hid in [D(F#)]shame
So [G]only stop to [C]rest [G]yourself
Till [Am]you are [Am(G)]off ag[D(F#)]ain[D(G)][D(E)]


So [G]take off your [C]thirsty boots
and [G]stay for a [C]while,
Your [G]feet are hot and [G(F#)]weary,[Em]
[Am]from[Am(G)] a dusty [D(F#)]mile,
And [G]maybe I can [C]make you laugh,
[G]maybe I can [C]try,
I’m just [G]looking for the [G(F#)]evening,
the[Am] mo[Am(G)]rning [D(F#)]in your [G]ey[C]e.[D7][G][C][D7]

So tell me of the ones you saw
As far as you could see
Across the plain from field to town
A-marching to be free
And of the rusted prison gates
That tumbled by degree
Like laughing children, one by one,
They look like you and me


(Harmonica interlude).

I know you are no stranger down
The crooked rainbow trails
Of slandered, shackled jails
For the voices drift up from below
As the walls they’re being scaled
Yes, all of this, and more, my friend,
Your song shall not be failed.


Yes, you’ve long been on the open road
You’ve been sleeping in the rain
Your clothes are smeared and stained
But the dirty words, the muddy cells,
They’ll soon be judged insane
So only stop to rest yourself
’til you are off again.
