HITCHIN' A RIDE
written by Murray/Callander
performed by Vanity Fare (a one-hit group)
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 


C / / / 2 / / / 3 / / / 4 /
A thumb goes up, a car goes by
It's nearly 1 AM and here am I
           F     G7           C
Hitchin' a ride,   hitchin' a ride
             F    G7               C
Gotta get me home   by the mornin' light
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/v/vanity_fare/hitchin_a_ride_crd.html ]
Verse 2:
I've got no fare to ride a train
I'm nearly drownin' in the pourin' rain
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to my baby's side
CHORUS:
F           G7               C
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
F           G7               C
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Verse 3:
Long-distance call I got today
She sounded lonely, so I'm on my way
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to keep her satisfied

(instrumental: 2 measures of drum solo, 4 of C, 8 of C7)

(chorus)

Verse 4:
A thumb goes up, a car goes by
Won't somebody stop and help a guy
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Been away too long from my baby's side

(chorus)

(repeat and fade):
C7
Ride, ride

NOTE: The above tab approximates the recording.  However, I like to play it
differently: I substitute the middle instrumental for one patterned after a
verse minus its last line.  Then, instead of the ending coda, I repeat the
chorus and fade.
