[Verse]
[Am]Man walkin‘ long the [Am/G]railroad [Am]tracks
[C]Goin‘ some place there’s no going [G]back
Highway patrol choppers comin‘ up over the ridge
Hot [Am]soup on a campfire [Am/G]under the [Am]bridge
Shelter line stretchin‘ [Am/G]round the [Am]corner
[C]Welcome to the new world [G]order
Families sleepin‘ in their cars in the Southwest
[Am]No home no job no [Am/G]peace no [Am]rest
[Chorus]
[F]The highway is alive tonight
But nobody’s [C]kiddin‘ nobody about [C/B]where it [Am]goes
[G]I’m sittin‘ down here in the campfire light
[Am]Searchin‘ for the [Am/G]ghost of Tom [Am]Joad
[Verse]
[Am]He pulls a prayer book [Am/G]out of [Am]his sleeping bag
[C]Preacher lights up a butt and [G]talks a drag
Waitin‘ for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last
In a[Am] cardboard box neath[Am/G] the under[Am]pass
Got a one-way ticket to [Am/G]the [Am]promised land
[C]You got hole in your [G]belly and a gun in your hand
Sleeping on a pillow of solid rock
[Am]Bathin‘ in the [Am/G]city [Am]aquaeduct
[Chorus]
[F]The highway is alive tonight
Where it’s [C]headed everybody knows [C/B] [Am]

[Am]Now Tom said: "Mom, [Am/G]wherever [Am]there’s cop beatin‘ a guy
[C]Wherever a hungry newborn baby [G]cries
Where there’s a fight gainst blood and hatred in the air
[Am]Look for me Mom I’ll be [Am/G]there [Am]
Wherever there’s [Am/G]somebody [Am]fightin‘ for a place to stand
[C]Or decent job or helping [G]hand
Wherever somebody’s strugglin‘ to be free
[Am]Look in their [Am/G]eyes Mom [Am]you’ll see me"
[Chorus]
[F]Well the highway is alive tonight
But nobody’s [C]kiddin‘ nobody about [C/B]where it [Am]goes
[G]I’m sittin‘ down here in the campfire light
[Am]With the ghost of [Am/G]old Tom Joad [Am]the campfire light
[Am]With the ghost of [Am/G]old Tom Joad [Am]
