HEADING FOR THE LIGHT- The Traveling Wilburys

G  A  C  D
  G                                           A
I've wandered around with nothing more than time on my hands
        C                         D
I was lost in the night with no sight of you
         C                        D
And at times it was so blue and lonely
                  G   C D
Heading for the light

Been close to the edge, hanging by my fingernails
I've rolled and I've tumbled through the roses and the thorns
And I couldn't see the sign that warned me, I'm
Heading for the light
[ Tab from: ]
riff  Em      D             C                        G
     Ooh, I didn't see that big black cloud hanging over me
riff Em            D                    C
     And when the rain came down I was nearly drowned
    A                            G
I didn't know the mess I was in

My shoes are wearing out from walking down this same highway
I don't see nothing new but I feel a lot of change
And I get the strangest feeling, as I'm
Heading for the light ...SOLO

Ooh, my hands were tied by jokers and fools on either side
But still I kept on till the worst had gone
Now I see the hole I was in


I see the sun ahead, I ain't never looking back
All the dreams are coming true as I think of you
Now there's nothing in the way to stop me
Heading for the light
      C                             D                        G
Now there's nothing in the way to stop me, heading for the light
