KEY: F# 
  F# 
HE?D DONE THIS RUN FOR A LONG TIME NOW 
 
AND HE DON?T KNOW WHY AND HE DON?T KNOW HOW 
                                                                                                          C#7 
BUT HE?D NEVER BEEN LATE SO THEY CALLED HIM DEAD ON TIME. 
 
HE PAINTED THE NAME ON THE BONNET IN BLACK 
 
AND THE STATION KIDS ON THE MAILMAN?S TRACK 
                                                                                          F# 
WOULD ALL LOOK OUT FOR THE DUST OF DEAD ON TIME. 
             C#7                                                      B                  F# 
WOULD ALL LOOK OUT FOR THE DUST OF DEAD ON TIME. 
 
       
I GOTTA BE BACK FOR THE KIDS BIRTHDAY 
 
HE MAILMAN SAID AS HE WAVED HOORAY 
                                                                                                        C#7 
AND WHELED HIS TRUCK ON THE LONG HAUL HOMEWARD BOUND. 
 
THE  WIFE?S GONNA MAKE HIM A CHOCOLATE CAKE 
 
THEY MADE ME PROMICE THAT I WON?T BE LATE 
                                                                                   F# 
I?LL SEE YOU AGAIN WHEN I COME NEXT TIME AROUND. 
      C#7                                                  B                            F#                  
I?LL SEE YOU AGAIN WHEN I COME NEXT TIME AROUND. 
 
            
BUT DEAD ON TIME RAN OUTTA LUCK 
 
AND HE COULD?T BELIEVE WHEN HIS GOOD OLD TRUCK 
                                                                                             C#7 
GROUND TO A HAULT WITH A BURNT OUT BEARINGS WHINE 
 
NOT A TREE IN SIGHT AND THE WATER BAG LOW 
 
NOT A HOPE IN HELL OF GETTING HER TO GO 
                                                                                           A 
DIDN?T LOOK TO GOOD AT ALL FOR DEAD ON TIME. 
              C#7                                           B                    F# 
DIDN?T LOOK TO GOOD AT ALL FOR DEAD ON TIME. 
 
        
A BIRTHDAY PARTY AND A CHOCOLATE CAKE 
 
WENT DANCIN ACROSS THE DRY SALT LAKE 
                                                                                            C#7 
WHERE THE MIRAGE MET WITH THE DISTANT TIMBER LINE. 
 
AND THE SILENT TRUCK THREW A MEAGRE SHADE 
 
OVER THE PLEA FOR HELP THAT HE MADE 
                                                                                        B                     F# 
SCRATCHED IN THE DIRT ON THE ROAD BY DEAD ON TIME. 
 
 
              
HE?D DONE THIS RUN FOR A LONG TIME NOW 
 
AND HE DON?T KNOW WHY AND HE DON?T KNOW HOW 
                                                                                                          C#7 
BUT HE?D NEVER BEEN LATE SO THEY CALLED HIM DEAD ON TIME. 
 
HE PAINTED THE NAME ON THE BONNET IN BLACK 
 
AND THE STATION KIDS ON THE MAILMAN?S TRACK 
                                                              B                    F# 
STILL LOOK OUT FOR THE DUST OF DEAD ON TIME. 
 
              C#7                                                                            F# 
YEAH!  STILL LOOK OUT FOR THE DUST OF DEAD ON TIME.
