The Road You Leave Behind You
The Road You Leave Behind
by David Lee Murphy
transcribed by Evan

Intro   E B A     E   A

E                                        A
I remember the night my dad stopped the car
                     B
And got out in the rain
 E                             
Changed a blown out tire on a car
        A                        B
For a family with out of state plates
B                  C#m           
I said dad did we know those folks
         F#m                     B
As they waved and drove out of site
B                     C#m                 
He just smiled as he started the car
         F#m                 A   B
He said son not 'til tonight

Chorus
             E                B 
You see the road you leave behind you 
        A                                        E
Is another road you're gonna have to come back down
                        B                     G#m
It's just the way this big old world turns 'round
         A               B        E         A
You'll find somehow somewhere someplace sometime
           A                B                E
You gotta go back down the road you leave behind

Fill In   E  B  A

E 
Stuck out on the highway one night
 A               B
Many years gone by
 E       
Had the hood of my truck pulled up
        A            B
My ol' gas tank was dry
  B                   C#m      
Some ol' guy gettin' off on the night shift
  F#m                 B
Pulled up to check on me
  B                      C#m
He said I been in your shoes before son
 F#m                     A  B
And it's no place to be

Chorus 
             E                 B
You see the road you leave behind you 
       A                                        E
Is another road you're gonna have to come back down
                        B                    G#m
It's just the way this big old world turns 'round
         A             B         E          A
You'll find somehow somewhere someplace sometime
           A                 B                E
You gotta go back down the road you leave behind

G#m              A                         E                   B
I said what do I owe you friend you could easily have passed me by
 G#m                   A              F#m                    A  B
He said next time it might be me son you don't owe me a dime

Chorus
            E                B
You see the road you leave behind you
      A                                         E
Is another road you're gonna have to come back down
                        B                    G#m
It's just the way this big old world turns 'round
        A               B         E         A
You'll find somehow somewhere someplace sometime
          A                  B                E
You gotta go back down the road you leave behind

Outro  
E  B  A 
         Down the road you leave behind
E  B  A
         The road you leave behind
E  B  A  
         It's that old road you leave behind
 Fade Out
