******************* OUT AMONG THE STARS *******************
written by A. Mitchell
performed by Waylon Jennings.

Capo on the 1st fret.

Verse 1:
      D                                     G 
	It's midnight at a liquor store in Texas
          D                          A
	Closing time another day is done
                D                                  G     E 
	When a boy walks in the door and points a pistol
                  D        A                   D
	He can't find a job,Lord he's found a gun

	
Verse 2:
      D                                          G
	He pulls it off with no trace of confrontation
                 D                                 A 
	Then he lets the old man run out in the street
               D                                        G     E 
	Even though he knows they'll come with guns a blazing
                D           A                 D   
	And already he can feel that great relief


Chorus:
      D                            C  G 
	Oh how many travelers get weary
         D                                     A 
	Bearing both their burdens and their scars
         D                                       C  G
	Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining
          D              A              D 
	Fly like eagles out among the stars


Verse 3:
      D                                  G
	He pictures the arrival of the cruisers
                  D                           A 
	Sees that old familiar anger in their eyes
             D                                       G    E  
	He knows that when they're shooting at this loser
                   D              A               D
	They'll be aiming at the demons in their lives


Chorus.


Verse 4:
      D                                      G  
	The evening news it carries all the details
            D                            A  
	He dies in every living room in town
                D                        G     E
	At his home a bottle's thrown in anger
                 D          A                       D  
	And his father cries we'll never live this down


Chorus bis:
      D                            C  G
	Oh how many travelers get weary
         D                                     A  
	Bearing both their burdens and their scars
         D                                       C G  
	Don't you think they'd love to start all over
              D              A              D    
	And fly like eagles out among the stars
                         A              G    
	Fly like eagles out among the stars
