Itís a long, long ††way, ††††††††††††to reach the end of your working day

The week drags on and on ††††††††††††††††††it saps the strength that you need to play

††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

The boss makes her daily ungodly demands

†††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Thereís no wisdom in the litany of her commands

You seek to see the stars, ††††††††††††††††††but get stuck in a prison of cars

††††††††† G††††††††††† D/F#†† Em†††† G/D†††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Crawl north on thirty†† five, ††praying youíll get past the bridges alive

(IN TEMPO)††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

††††† ††††††††††††††††You break out on a side road and youíre free

†††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

After the falls youíre driviní effortlessly

C†††† †††††††††††††††††††D

The air is clean, scenery free

††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D†††† D7

Getaway day marks the time to play, the lake beckons you from far away

Getaway day starts the end of the week, you escape to find the Zen that you seek

You make a quick stop in town, see the lake by sundown

 

C†††††††† G††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Sunset hues, ripples swirl pinks and blues

Sail or Ski? Depends on the strength of the breeze

You trudge out through the snow, †††††††††††to hear musicians that have come to play
