Key: Am
Am      G        F 
  Here along the roadside 
          Am        G        F 
I brought nails and wood and paint 
     Am    G      F 
I've had a little trouble 
  Am     G    F 
Deciding on a saint 
Am        G         F 
  A cross from Ensanada 
       Am          G         F 
In the dark it's supposed to glow 
     Am      G         F 
Some beads I bought in Garberville 
 Am     G    F 
Another life ago 

G               F 
Out here on the highway 
             G             F 
I build your altar in your box 
     G                F 
Some shelter when its raining 
     Am                 G 
Some shade for when its not 
     Am    G    F 
It's not 

       Am        G        F 
Though red would probably suit you 
        Am        G        F 
I think I'll just paint it white 
         Am    G      F 
It's the color of the virgin 
         Am     G      F 
She's my beacon in the night 
Am         G      F 
  A statue of St. Francis 
   Am      G      F 
He holds a little lamb 
    Am      G    F 
And answers to a question 
        Am     G      F 
So much bigger than I am 

G               F       
Out here on the highway 
          G             F 
It's your altar in your box 
     G                F 
Some shelter when its raining 
     Am                 G 
Some shade for when its not 

        F     C       G 
At your altar in your box 
        F     C       G 
At your altar in your box 
    F     C          G 
The women throw Hail Mary's 
        C     Am      G 
At your altar in your box 

   Am          G      F 
At last I will hang a rosary 
        Am     G       F 
That my father gave to me 
     Am    G        F 
From olive trees in Lebanon 
     Am       G     F 
Some personal history 
Am            G            F 
  And I won't include your photograph 
   Am         G       F 
Or carve your name in stone 
       Am    G         F 
So the women who bring flowers 
    Am        G         F 
Can make your box their own 

G               F       
Out here on the highway 
          G             F 
It's your altar in your box 
     G                F 
Some shelter when its raining 
     Am                 G 
Some shade for when its not 

    G              F 
And I will light a candle 
    G                F 
And say a prayer for you 
        G               F 
So that I will not feel guilty 
       Am                  G 
On the nights that I drive through 

        F     C       G 
At your altar in your box 
        F     C       G 
At your altar in your box 
    F          C       G 
The big wheels keep on rolling 
        C     Am      G 
By your altar in your box 

        F     C       G 
At your altar in your box 
        F     C       G 
At your altar in your box 
    F        C     G 
The truckers all salute you 
        C     Am      G 
In your altar in your box 

        F     C       G 
At your altar in your box 
        F     C       G 
At your altar in your box 
    F          C       G 
You just might find me kneeling 
        C     Am      G 
By your altar in your box 

     Am  G  F 
As I sit      beside the water 
    Am        G        F 
And watch the men rake rocks 
  Am         G         F 
I trust that you'll be happy 
        Am    G       F 
In your altar in your box
