Intro:
    AbAb chord  BbBb chord  CmCm chord  GmGm chord     
    AbAb chord  BbBb chord  EbEb chord  GmGm chord     

Verse:
   FmFm chord                     BbBb chord
I think about that day I left him at a Greyhound station
EbEb chord                CC chord 
West of Sante Fe, we were seventeen
            FmFm chord                         BbBb chord                 EbEb chord    
but he was sweet and it was true, still I did what I had to do
       CmCm chord 
'Cuz I just knew
FmFm chord                        BbBb chord
Summer Sunday nights we'd sink into our seats
             EbEb chord    
Right as they dimmed out all the lights
    CC chord                             FmFm chord 
The Technicolor world made out of music and machine
   BbBb chord                       EbEb chord    
It called me to be on that screen
         CmCm chord                 
And live inside its sheen

Pre-Chorus:
    AbAb chord
Without a nickel to my name
BbBb chord
Hopped a bus, here I came
CmCm chord
Could be brave or just insane
GmGm chord       
We'll have to see
AbAb chord    
'Cuz maybe in that sleepy town
BbBb chord
He'll sit one day, the lights are down
      EbEb chord                              GG chord 
He'll see my face and think of how he used to know me

Chorus:
   AbAb chord                   BbBb chord              CmCm chord 
Climb these hills I'm reaching for the heights
     FmFm chord              BbBb chord         EbEb chord    
And chasing all the lights that shine
    CmCm chord                 BbBb chord
And when they let you down -it's another day of sun-
       CmCm chord              BbBb chord
You'll get up off the ground -it's another day of sun-
   CmCm chord             BbBb chord                           EbEb chord       GG chord 
As morning rolls around and it's another day of sun

Verse:
  FmFm chord                      BbBb chord                              EbEb chord
I hear 'em ev'ry day, the rhythms in the canyons that'll never fade away 
CC chord                                   FmFm chord
The ballads in the barrooms left by those who came before
BbBb chord                           EbEb chord
They say "you gotta want it more"
     CmCm chord
So I bang on ev'ry door

Pre-Chorus:
    AbAb chord
And even when the answer's "no"
BbBb chord
Or when my money's running low
CmCm chord
The dusty mic and neon glow
GmGm chord
Are all I need
AbAb chord
And someday as I sing my song
BbBb chord
AA chord small-town kid'll come along
EbEb chord                                   GG chord
That'll be the thing to push him on and go go

Chorus:
   AbAb chord                   BbBb chord              CmCm chord 
Climb these hills I'm reaching for the heights
     FmFm chord              BbBb chord         EbEb chord    
And chasing all the lights that shine
    CmCm chord                 BbBb chord
And when they let you down -it's another day of sun-
       CmCm chord              BbBb chord
You'll get up off the ground -it's another day of sun-
   CmCm chord             BbBb chord                           EbEb chord       GG chord 
As morning rolls around and it's another day of sun

Interlude:
FmFm chord       BbBb chord            EbEb chord
And when they let you down
CC chord           FmFm chord    BbBb chord
The morning rolls around

Outro:
                     AA chord  BB chord
It's another day of sun

                    DbmDbm chord BB chord
It's another day of sun
