Capo 2nd fret (sounding key A major)


G              Am 
 I have been a rover
D               G     C/g G
 I have walked alone
                Am
Hiked a hundred highways
D              G     /f#
 Never found a home
Em                Bm
 Still in all I'm happy
C                   Am7-5
 The reason is, you see
G         Am     C        Am7-5
Once in a while along the way
G           D       G
Love's been good to me
            Am      D
There was a girl in Denver
Am           D      G       /f#
  Before the summer storm
Em                 Bm
 Oh, her eyes were tender
C                  D
 Oh, her arms were warm
              G      B7      Em      G7
And she could smile away the thunder
C             Am7-5
Kiss away the rain
    G    Am           C     Am7-5
And even though she's gone away
    G          D     G
You won't hear me complain
I have been a rover
I have walked alone
Hiked a hundred highways
Never found a home
Still in all I'm happy
The reason is, you see
Once in a while along the way
Love's been good to me
There was a girl in Portland
Before the winter chill
We used to go a-courtin'
Along October hill
And she could laugh away the dark clouds
Cry away the snow
It seems like only yesterday
As down the road I go
I've been a rover
I have walked alone
Hiked a hundred highways
Never found a home
Still in all I'm happy
The reason is, you see
Once in a while along the way
Love's been good to me
