The Promised Land

G
I left my home in norfolk virginia
C
California on my mind
D
I boarded that greyhound,
G
Rode in into raliegh on across caroline
G
Stopped in charlotte to by pass rockhill
C
We never was a minute late
D
We were ninty miles out of atlanta by sundown
G
Rollin' out of georgia state
G
We had motor trouble that turned into a struggle
C
Halfway across alabam
D
And that bow broke down
G
And left us stranded in downtown birmingham
G
Right away i bought a through train ticket
C
Got across mississippi clean
D
And i was on that midnight flyer out of birmingham
G
Smokin' into new orleans
G
Somebody help me get out of louisiana
C
Help me get to houston town

Strum

D
There are people there who care a little 'bout me
G
And won't put the poor boy down
G
Georgia born, they bought me a silk suit
C
And put luggage in my hand
D
And woke up high over albuquerque
G
On a jet to the promised land
G
Workin' on a t-bone ala cartee
C
Flyin' over to the golden state
D
When the pilot told us in thirteen minutes
G
He would set us at the terminal gate
G
Swing low chariot, come down easy
C
Taxi to the terminal door
D
Cut your engines and cool your wings
G
And let me make it to the telephone
G
Los angeles, give me norfolk virginia
C
Tidewater four ten o nine
D
Tell all the folks back home

It's the promised land callin'
G
And the poor boy is on the line
