Intro: C   Dm   F    G 

C                           Dm 
Alice works the desk at the East Bay Hotel 
   F                  G 
In Grand Marais, Minnesota 
C                                 Dm 
I came in one night, she said, 'I loved your show' 
   F                     G       C 
We sat and talked on the sofa 


             F             G                     C 
She's on her own since her husband passed away 
             F                   G                     
Some surgeon screwed up, there's nothing left to say 
        C                                Dm 
Now she works this desk at night and the campground by day 
     F                              G 
In a trailer by the lake, until the summer blows away 


    C                       Dm 
She read about the job in a camping magazine 
    F                 G 
And home was just a reminder 
       C                     Dm                      F 
So she took the cat and dog, stored away her things 
                     G         C 
Left the bleakness behind her 


     F               G                     C 
Even now through the ache of missing him 
                  F          G                     
She's filled with wonder and far from giving in 
         C                        Dm 
She sees magic on the lake in the early morning light 
    F                                   G 
And talking books and telling tales, we sat there half the night 

  
C F And she said, 'The more I travel, the more I wanna see G C My kids want some settled life for me A Dm Dsus2 I don't wanna move somewhere and grow old quietly G F C And the more I travel, the more I wanna see'
C Dm Well, it's time to make a change, with winter in the wings F G And the East Bay Hotel made an offer C Dm But she doesn't really know, 'cause there's everywhere to go F G C And there's everything that travelling has taught her F G C Moving marches down busy city streets F G Fantastic people she's privileged to meet C Dm And she dreams about Alaska, the snow so deep and white F G And that little town in Texas, where there's dancing every night
C F She says, 'The more I travel, the more I wanna see G C My kids want some settled life for me A Dm Dsus2 I don't wanna move somewhere and grow old quietly G F C And the more I travel' F 'The more I travel, the more I wanna see G C My kids want some settled life for me A Dm Dsus2 I don't wanna move somewhere and grow old quietly G F C And the more I travel, the more I wanna see' G C The more I wanna see'
