There’s  
G

dropping 
 
a
D 
nother string

G 
pushed the last  
Am7 
pot to the

ocean floor, And  
C 
I made my  
D 
way to the  
G/E

Seems the  
C 
cruelest of  
G/B 
waves had crashed  
Am7 
back on the  
G 
shore,
D/F# 
Back where my  
G/E 
Chelsea Dawn  
D 
lives…

I

Well she’s  
G 
thirty-seven years to
Cadd9 
day.
G 
Cadd9 
And 
 
 
G 
all she ever seemed to  
Cadd9 
say…
G 
Cadd9 
 
She said  
Em 
”I… 
 
 
C 
I could have  
G 
been someone,” “You know  
D/F# 
but 
 
 
Em 
I…
C 
I was  
G 
staring into the  
D 
sun.”

Chorus
 
AND SHE SAID,  
Em 
”YOU COULD FIND THE  
C 
HARD WAY OF DOING  
G 
ANYTHING”
Em 
”YOU COULD TRY TO  
C 
MAKE IT ON YOUR  
G 
O—
D 
OWN”
 
AND SHE SAID  
Em 
”YOU COULD FIND THE  
C 
HARD WAY OF DOING  
G 
ANYTHING”
C 
”BUT YOU MAY NEVER  
G 
MAKE IT ALL A
D 
LONE.”

 
So she  
G 
ordered up another  
Cadd9 
round,
G 
Cadd9 
And she said,  
G 
”Well I don’t mean to bring you  
Cadd9 
down.”
G 
Cadd9 
 
“But on the  
Em 
road that we must  
C 
travel.., take  
G 
care.”
 
“Before the  
EM 
yellow brick turns to  
C 
gravel, You got to  
G 
hurry up and take your  
D 
share!”

Chorus

Bridge
C 
”WHATEVER YOU DO WITH YOUR LIFE, LEAVE A  
G 
TRAIL!”
 
“DON’T YOU KNOW,  
B7 
SOMETIMES SOME THINGS IN LIFE, WELL YOU  
C 
JUST CAN’T HELP!”
G/B 
Am7 
”BUT I SEE BIG THINGS IN YOUR  
D 
FUTURE,”
D7 
 
“ONCE YOU  
Am7 
SHINE YOUR LIGHT DOWN THE LINE THAT  
D 
SUITS 
 
YA’…
D7

Am7 
…”OR YOU CAN FIND THE HARD WAY!”

So she  
G 
lit another ciga
Cadd9 
rette,
G 
Cadd9 
And through her  
G 
smoke came a passion I’ll  
Cadd9 
never 
 
forget.
G 
Cadd9 
 
She said, “De

”And

”When
