Hitchiker chords By John Denver Guitar Chords
F Gm If you're riding down the road and you come across an old man C7 F holding out his thumb in the wind. Gm Dm Clothes are old and dirty, that doesn't matter, G7 C it's his eyes that tell you where he's been. F Gm If you're not afraid to take your chances on a stranger, C7 F he might have some company to lend. Gm Dm Pull off to the side, let the old man have a ride. G7 C He'll tell you all the crazy things he's seen. G# D# F C I'm an old hitchhiker, highway is the only home I know. G# D# Where you headed, I don't mind. I ain't been there in some time, G7 C but it's just exactly where I wanna go. C Gm I can tell you how I started in the circus as a barker C7 F calling people in from far and wide. Gm Dm They never did regret the dollar that it cost them, G7 C we always left 'em feeling good inside. F Gm We were headed for Montana when we hired us a dancer, C7 F her beauty it was more than I can say. Gm Dm Then one summer night she set my soul on fire, G7 C Lord, I wish that she was here with me today. G# D# F C I'm an old hitchhiker, wonder what's awaiting round the bend. G# D# I don't know what I might see, I don't need no guarantee, G7 C just a ride from here to there and back again. F Gm I was only seventeen when I took the open highway, C7 F took it for my teacher and a friend. Gm Dm I've been thirty years of thumbing, some might call it bumming, G7 C it's better than just crying in the wind. F Gm If you're driving down the road and you come across an old man, C7 F holding out his thumb in the rain. Gm Dm You can pull off to the side, let the poor boy have a ride, G7 C he can tell you all the crazy things he's seen. G# D# F C I'm an old hitchhiker, looking to the far side of the hill. G# D# Some people say I'll settle down, build a home in some small town. G7 C But in my heart I know I never will, G# D# F C F I'm an old hitchhiker.
