Tom: Am
The chords shown are the proper fingerings, however, the recording is played with a capo on the second fret.

G   
HIGHWAY PATROL CHOPPERS COMIN' UP OVER THE RIDGE

    F   
THE HIGHWAY IS ALIVE TONIGHT   
         C                    G       Am  
NOBODY'S KIDDIN' NOBODY ABOUT WHERE IT GOES   
    G   
I'M SITTIN' DOWN HERE IN THE CAMPFIRE LIGHT    
Am                G        Am   
SEARCHIN' FOR THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD   
He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping bag  
Preachers lights up a butt and takes a drag  
Waitin' for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last  
In a cardboard box 'neath the underpass  
Got a one-way ticket to the promised land  
You got a hole in your belly and a gun in your hand  
Sleeping on a pillow of solid rock  
Bathin' in the city aqueduct  

The highway is alive tonight  
Where it's headed everybody knows  
I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light  
Waitin' on the ghost of Tom Joad  

Now Tom said, 'Mom, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy  
Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries  
Where there's a fight 'gainst the blood and hatred in the air  
Look for me Mom I'll be there  
Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a place to stand  
Or a decent job or a helpin' hand  
Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free  
Look in their eyes Mom you'll see me.'  

Well the highway is alive tonight  
But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes  
I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light  
With the ghost of old Tom Joad
