From the recording Ride the Open Road

Lyrics

Chorus
A E A
We took a road trip across the country
A E A
We started out in Philadelphia, PA
D A
The road took us all the way to Seattle
A E A
Moving my baby girl out that way.


(1)
E A
She was 27 and she wanted a change
E A
So she decided to head way out west
D A
So we packed the car and started down the highway
E A
Deep in my heart I knew it was for the best.


(2)

E A
3000 miles to go on our journey
E A
3000 miles to drive we had
D A
Lots of sights to see along the way
E A
But still making this trip made me sad.

Chorus

A E A
We took a road trip across the country
A E A
We started out in Philadelphia, PA
D A
The road took us all the way to Seattle
A E A
Moving my baby girl out that way

G D A
Was it really time for her to go?
G D A
I think that I really know
G D A
Sometimes you gotta let go
G A D
Change is often good for the soul.


(3)
E A
We finally made it out to Washington
E A
Starting out in old Spokane
D A
Before heading west to Seattle
E A
We somehow made it across the land.


Chorus

A E A
We took a road trip across the country
A E A
We started out in Philadelphia, PA
D A
The road took us all the way to Seattle
A E A
Moving my baby girl out that way
