          Memories are good
                                   G
          The hardwood floor neath your kitchen door
                   Asus4               D
          Where you taught me all your dirty words
                                             G
          When we first made love under your ivory cross
                   Asus4        D
          It was a rainy Easter Sunday
                                                G
          And we were drinking champagne in the Mulholland hills

          When I finally felt that stone roll away

               Asus4                 D
          Even though you're getting old
                                       G
          It's a long, long way to the middle
              Asus4         D
          The middle of the road
                              G
          But I still love you baby
              Asus4             D
          Why don't you come on home?
              G     Asus4       D
          Why don't you come on...

          D                   G
Verse 3:  Well happy birthday baby
                      Asus4        D
          Hope you're getting realistic
                                   G                   Asus4            D
         You're two months and two years away from the same old sad statistic
                             G
          To live out in the wilderness
                    Asus4             D
          You gotta learn to start a fire
                                                G
          But you can stand out there with your fist in the air
                    Asus4                      D
          While the rest of us get on with our lives

          D                            G
Chorus:   It's a long, long way to the middle
              Asus4         D
          The middle of the road
                                     G
          But don't you listen to me baby
          Asus4                D
          I've been bought and sold
                                       G
          It's a long, long way to the middle
              Asus4         D
          The middle of the road
                               G
          But I still love you baby
              Asus4             D
          Why don't you come on home?
              G     Asus4        D
          Why don't you come on...

About the artist behind Middle Of The Road Chords:

Johnathan Rice is a singer/songwriter. His first album Trouble Is Real was released on April 26, 2005. Born in Alexandria, Virginia on 27 May 1983, he is a graduate of Gonzaga College High School in Washington, DC. He also played Roy Orbison in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line. He is currently signed to Warner Bros. Records.

Rice spent the early years of his life growing up in an affluent neighborhood of suburban Glasgow (Scotland) called Bishopbriggs. After graduating from high school in Washington, D.C. Rice moved to New York where he began work on his debut album.

Shortly after arriving in the city, the World Trade Center was destroyed and this, along with other themes of war can be heard in his lyrics in songs such as "City on Fire", "Put Me in Your Holy War" and "Stay at Home". The album was recorded several times before Rice was happy with it, finally settling with Bright Eyes producer Mike Mogis, creating a rich, diverse sound with most tracks leading into one another as a single "work" of music.

Rice has cited Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Beatles, and country legend Gram Parsons as influences on his work.

One of Rice's friends and prodigies is singer/songwriter Paul Watson of the band The Gui Lows. The pair grew up in towns only miles apart, and playing 'indie-folk'.

He is currently dating Jenny Lewis and was one of the main support acts during her solo 2006 Rabbit Fur Coat tour. He has also supported - and been lauded by - R.E.M., during their 2005 tour, with his harmony and lap steel band Death Valley. Later that year he also appeared at the "V Festival", performing a solo acoustic set. His autumn tour of Europe that followed featured Death Valley as a coruscating rock band, putting a hard-edged take on the songs from his debut album.

Further North was released in US, through Reprise Records, on September 11th. The first single taken from the album was "We're All Stuck Out In The Desert (And We're Gonna Die)".
