Turn The Page

Coversong originally made famous by Bob Seger
Later mutilated by Metallica
Written by Bob Seger

(Em) On a long and lonely highway east of Omaha
You can (D) listen to the engines, moanin’ out as one long song
You can (A) think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night (Em) before
(Em) Well your thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
When you’re (D) riding sixteen hours and there’s nothing much to do
And you (A) don’t feel much like ridin’, you just wish the trip was (Em) through

Here I (D) am, on the (Em) road again
There I (D) am, up on (Em) stage
Here I (D) go, playing the (A) star again
There I (C) go, (D) turn the (Em) page

(Em) When you walk into a restaurant, strung out from the road
And you (D) feel the eyes upon you, as you’re shaking off the cold
You (A) pretend it doesn’t bother you, but you just want to (Em) explode
(Em) Most times you can hear ’em talk’, other times you can’t
All the (D) same old cliches is that a woman or a man
And you (A) always seem outnumbered, you dare not make a (Em) stand


(Em) Out there in the spotlight, you’re a million miles away
(D) Every ounce of energy you try to give away
As the (A) sweat pours out your body like the music that you (Em) play
(Em) Later in the evening, as you lie awake in bed
With the (D) echoes from the amplifiers ringin’ in your head
You (A) smoke the day’s last cigarette, remembering what she (Em) said
