Artist, Johnny Cash

Lyrics Chord: Johnny Cash – Out Among The Stars


E A
It’s Midnight at a liquor store in Texas
E B7
Closing time another day is done
E A
When a boy walks in the door and points a pistol
E B7 E
He can’t find a job but Lord he’s found a gun

A
He pulls it off with no trace of confrontation
E B7
That he lets the old man run out in the street
E A
Even though he knows they’ll come with guns a blazing
E B7 E
already he can feel that great relief

D A
Oh how many travelers get wear-y
E B7
Bearing both their burdens and their scars
E A
Don’t you think they’d love to start all over
E B7 E
And fly like eagles out among the stars

A
He pictures the arrival of the cruisers
E B7
Sees that old familiar anger in their eyes
E A
He knows that when they’re shooting at this loser
E B7 E
They’ll be aiming at the demons in their lives

Repeat #3

A
Evening news it carries all the details
E B7
He dies in every living room in town
E A
And in his own a bottle’s thrown in anger
E B7 E
And his father cries we’ll never live this down

D A
Oh how many travelers get wear-y
E B7
Bearing both their burdens and their scars
E A
Don’t you think they’d love to start all over
E B7 E
And fly like eagles out among the stars

B7 E
And fly like eagles out among the stars
