( C  G  C  Am  F  C ) 

  C      C      G        C 
A million miles our   vagabond heels 
    Am   F          C    C 
Clocked up     beneath the clouds 
     G      G     C     F 
They're counting down to show time 
   C       C           F     F 
When we do it for real with the crowds 
G          G         C         F 
Air miles are owing but they don't come for free 
      C          C    F    F 
And they don't give you any for pain 
C           C       G     C 
But if it's all for nothing, all the 
   Am     F       C  C   G  C Am F C C 
Roadrunning's   been in vain 

  C         C     G      C 
The rimshots come down like   cannon fire 
  Am    F         C    C 
And thunder   off the wall 
       G   G     C    F 
There's a man in every corner 
  C       C        F    F 
And each one is giving his all 
G       G     C         F 
This is my piper, this is my drum 
    C      C         F    F 
So you never will hear me complain 
C          C       G      C 
And if it's all for nothing, all the 
   Am     F        C 
Roadrunning's    been in vain 

F         G     G  G    F           C   C  C C 
All the roadrunning          All the roadrunning 

   C           C      G         C 
Well, if you're inclined to go up on the wall 
      Am    F         C   C 
It can only be   fast and high 
  G       G         C     F 
And those who don't like the danger 
       C     C         F   F 
Soon find something different to try 
  G        G      C           F 
And when there is only a ringin' in your ears 
    C      C   F  F 
And an echo down memory lane 
C          C       G      C 
Then if it's all for nothing, all the 
   Am     F       C 
Roadrunning's   been in vain 

F         G     G  G    F           C   C  C 
All the roadrunning          All the roadrunning 
F         G     G  G    F           C   C  C C 
All the roadrunning          All the roadrunning 

   C        C   G        C 
The show's packing up, I   sit and watch 
   Am   F        C   C 
The convoy   leaving town 
 G         G     C       F 
There's no pretending, I'm not a fool 
   C      C      F   F 
For riding around and around 
       G          G     C        F 
Like the pictures you keep of your old wall of death 
   C       C      F    F 
You showed me one time on a plane 
C           C       G     C 
But if it's all for nothing, all the 
   Am     F       C  C   G  C Am F C C 
Roadrunning's   been in vain 

  C      C     G        C 
A million miles of   vagabond sky 
    Am   F        C     C 
Clocked up    above the clouds 
G            G        C     F 
I'm still your man for the roaming 
     C          C       F   F 
For as long as there's roamin' allowed 
 G         G        C        F 
There'll be a rider and there'll be a wall 
  C        C      F  F 
As long as the dreamer remains 
C          C       G      C 
And if it's all for nothing, all the 
   Am     F        C 
Roadrunning's    been in vain
