Travelin’ Light

Travelin’ Light Guitar Chords & Lyrics
In the Key of F#minor/G flatminor
The song starts out in F#minor, you should prefer to listen to the song
 
[Verse 1]
F#m              Amaj
Travelin' light, is the only way to fly
F#m              Amaj
Travelin' light, just you and I
Amaj             F#m
One-way ticket to ecstasy
Amaj         F#m
Way on down, follow me
F#m             Amaj
Travelin' light, is the only way to fly
 
Bridge-There is a slight bridge/break here and after the second verse
It's played like this: B B F#m(x3), then you end on a B while playing it
a few times, then go back into the song playing like the intro, but you
can play a solo there, etc. Try to always make it your own
 
[Verse 2]
Travelin' light, we can go beyond
Travelin' light, we can catch the wind
Travelin' light, let your mind pretend
We can go to paradise
Maybe once, maybe twice
Travelin' light, is the only way to fly

[Verse 1]
G
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
                                 D7
No way to relieve this feeling inside
                      G                         C7
You done gave me them blues and then you took a ride
             G             D7            G   F  C G N.C.

Shame, oh shame, on what you do
                                            D7
Can't you see that I, I, I, been feeling so blue
                G                   C7
Cast a spell on me, then you took a ride

You done gave me them blues, then you took a ride

City girls they're all right
                           E
They just want you for the night
                              B    A
But when the morning comes at dawn
                    E
City girls they all gone

You know the daylight can be sad
                               E
When you feel that you've been had
                           B     A
Only night time brings the price

Can't afford no diamond rings
                         E
Or all those other fancy things
 
E                    A
Only one thing I can give

A song down where you live

I Got The Same Old Blues

I Got The Same Old Blues Guitar Chords & Lyrics

Am
Have you heard that rumour that's going around
          D               Am
You got a man, way across town
                  D                            Am
It's the same old story, tell me where does it end
       G                         F             Am
Yes, I heard the news, it's the same old blues again
 
Am
When I wrote you a letter, you must have read it wrong
                D                    Am
I stood at your doorway, but you was gone
                 D                            Am
It took a lot of courage to let the telephone ring
         G               F              Am
It's the same old blues, same old blues again
 
Am   Am   D   Am   D   Am   G F Am

When you give me the business, you know I don't mind
                         D                              Am
'Cause I've got a lot of patience and I've got a lot of time

Early in the morning, about a quarter to four
G                    A
Me and my girlfriend walkin' out the door 
E                             D
We're heading for the car and we got right in
B                             A
And that's when I noticed the shape she was in
E
She turned to me and said right out
B                      A
Let's steer it awhile, let's steer it about
 
Chorus
D                 A     E
Take the long way home

Well we drove down town and up in the woods

We drove around and around till I understood
E                        D
I was holding the wheel, she was making out
B                        A
And all this time I was driving about
E
She was fondling my hair and hugging my neck
B                              A
And all I was thinking was, oh what the heck

There was two big red lights shining in my eyes
E                  D
I pull over and he drove alongside
    B                  A
And out of his car and up to my right
E
He looked at her and she looked at him
B                               A
And the next thing I noticed he got right in

[Verse 1]
 Am                 G
Downtown L.A. is a depressing place
   D                                        Am
You can see young men with deep lines in their face
  Am                        G
They could all be something if somebody cared
  D                           Am
But nobody knows they're even down there
 
[Bridge 1]
 G                        Am
Old woman walking with a sack on her back
G                     Am
Picking up the garbage people put out back
G                     Am
Men down there trying to walk the line
G                      D            Am
Trading their soul for a bottle of wine
 
[Verse 2]
 Am                    G
In the inner city it ain't no good
   D                        Am
It's a long, long way from Hollywood
  Am                              G
Bad kind of people got a hold of the street
   D                     Am
They got something that the poor people need
 
[Bridge 2]
 G                        Am
At two in the morning they bust your head
G                     Am
Fat chance walking you'll end up dead
G                     Am
It's the law of the jungle with a gun and a knife

If you stay long enough you lose your life

He was sleeping in the street and he couldn't keep from crying
  Am                              G
Said he'd been there for twenty one years
   D                                    Am
Through the bars and the brawls and the blues and the tears
 
[Bridge 3]
 G                Am
Prop up the front the back falls down
G                     Am
All around the canyons of L.A. town
G                     Am
When he asked me for a dollar I looked him in his face

You better move around at night
                  A                C

Threaten your life, take your money
         D7                    A
Make you think you´re there to stay
 
[Chorus]
               D7                 A
And they don´t care about Dallas, Texas

Devil In Disguise

Devil In Disguise Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[Verse 1]
B
From the California shore to New York City
B
The beat don't never stop
E
You can hear it on the radio anywhere you go
B
It's steady as the rhythm of a clock
E
It cuts through the noise of the city life
B
It won't seem to go away
B                             A
It's the devil in disguise I tell you no lies
E                         B
My fingers do the walking everyday
 
[Verse 2]
B
Yonder comes a young girl she wants to take a whirl
B
She thinks it's all a dream
E
She got rock and roll way down in her soul
B
She wants to know where's the limousine
E
Get up honey let your mama sit down
B
You're too young anyway
B                         A
The devil in disguise give her the prize
E                       B
Then you can carry her away
 
[Verse 3]
B
When the road I travel starts to unravel
B
Every which way it goes
E
The beat starts to press on my bullet proof vest
B
And my high turns out to be low
E
Give me my guitar I'm going to go far
B
Let me see it let me hold it in my hand
B                           A
I'm the devil in disguise I tell you no lies
E                             B
I'm playing in a rock 'n roll band

Danger, she walks the streets alone,
E       G       D             E
Danger, all the bars she now knows.
E                A
All the men that look her way, 
E              A
Could be hers, hers today. 
E       G      D           E
Danger, she’s out into the night. 
 
(break)
 
G             A
Locked into a love affair,
G          A
Didn’t see it go nowhere. 
G                   A
With no choice, she thought she might,
G                       A
Rush into the wind, and out into the night.

E       G    D                  E

All the bars she now knows.
G       D             E
All the men that look her way,
G        D       E
Could be hers today.
