    Well I was found in the transit lounge of a dirty airport town
    Em			D			Em	    F#m
    What was I doing on the road to ruin, where my mama laid me down?
    Em		D
    My mama laid me down
    
    Em		    D			Em	      D
    Round my hand was a plastic band with a picture of my face

    I'm passing through, no fixed abode
    Em
    And that is why
    
    I need to try
    
    Em
    To hold on (to hold on)
    
    Got to hold on

    Was it planned as a one-night stand, or did she leave in disgrace?
    Em	      D		  Em		  F#m
    Well I never, will I ever see my father's face?
    Em		 D  A  E
    See my father's face
