Intro: E A E

 

E                             C#m                            A                            E

Did you see the morning looked so different today?

C#m                            E/B                             F#                                                        B7

I’ve a mind to let all fortune’s chips fall where they may

  E                            E7                             A                                          F#

Put my future in the hands of fate and see what comes along

              E                            C#m                                          A               B                E

So don’t ask for me tomorrow man cos tonight I’m moving on

 

I tried to make a difference but it turned out just the same

I understood the rules but not the nature of the game

I tried my best to do it right, but that’s where it all went wrong

So don’t ask for me tomorrow man cos tonight I’m moving on

 

A                                                        E

There’s not a thing I have I couldn’t stand to lose

F#m                                                                                                                              B7

So I’m gonna leave this city, all its troubles and cares to the rats and the roaches and the millionaires

 

When I was a younger man, they promised me the world

Spun me tales of new york dolls and California girls

Sure enough my moment came but it didn’t hang around too long

So don’t ask for me tomorrow man cos tonight I’m moving on

 

(Instrumental)

 

There’s not a thing I have I couldn’t stand to lose

So I’m gonna leave this city, all its troubles and cares to the rats and the roaches and the millionaires

 

I won’t spare a thought for all the things that might have been

When I’m laying in the sun upon a field of perfect green

Maybe given time they’ll come to miss me when I’m gone

just don’t ask for me tomorrow man cos tonight I’m moving on

 

I’m headed for some other town, I’m headed for the sea

Packing up the tears and laughter and I’m taking them with me

If you can stand to travel light, then why don’t you come along?

And see where luck may take us, man, tonight we’re moving on
