DEAD ON TIME.
KEY: F#
  F#
HE'D DONE THIS RUN FOR A LONG TIME NOW

AND HE DON'T KNOW WHY AND HE DON'T KNOW HOW
              C#7
BUT HE'D NEVER BEEN LATE SO THEY CALLED HIM DEAD ON TIME.

HE PAINTED THE NAME ON THE BONNET IN BLACK

AND THE STATION KIDS ON THE MAILMAN'S TRACK
           F#
WOULD ALL LOOK OUT FOR THE DUST OF DEAD ON TIME.
             C#7                     B                  F#
WOULD ALL LOOK OUT FOR THE DUST OF DEAD ON TIME.

      
I GOTTA BE BACK FOR THE KIDS BIRTHDAY

HE MAILMAN SAID AS HE WAVED HOORAY
                                                 C#7
AND WHELED HIS TRUCK ON THE LONG HAUL HOMEWARD BOUND.

THE  WIFE'S GONNA MAKE HIM A CHOCOLATE CAKE

THEY MADE ME PROMICE THAT I WON'T BE LATE
                               F#
I'LL SEE YOU AGAIN WHEN I COME NEXT TIME AROUND.
      C#7                               B                            F#                 
I'LL SEE YOU AGAIN WHEN I COME NEXT TIME AROUND.

           
BUT DEAD ON TIME RAN OUTTA LUCK

AND HE COULD'T BELIEVE WHEN HIS GOOD OLD TRUCK
                                                         C#7
GROUND TO A HAULT WITH A BURNT OUT BEARINGS WHINE

NOT A TREE IN SIGHT AND THE WATER BAG LOW

NOT A HOPE IN HELL OF GETTING HER TO GO
                                                      A
DIDN'T LOOK TO GOOD AT ALL FOR DEAD ON TIME.
              C#7                          B                    F#
DIDN'T LOOK TO GOOD AT ALL FOR DEAD ON TIME.

       
A BIRTHDAY PARTY AND A CHOCOLATE CAKE

WENT DANCIN ACROSS THE DRY SALT LAKE
                                                                   C#7
WHERE THE MIRAGE MET WITH THE DISTANT TIMBER LINE.

AND THE SILENT TRUCK THREW A MEAGRE SHADE

OVER THE PLEA FOR HELP THAT HE MADE
                                                 B                     F#
SCRATCHED IN THE DIRT ON THE ROAD BY DEAD ON TIME.


             
HE'D DONE THIS RUN FOR A LONG TIME NOW

AND HE DON'T KNOW WHY AND HE DON'T KNOW HOW
                                                                         C#7
BUT HE'D NEVER BEEN LATE SO THEY CALLED HIM DEAD ON TIME.

HE PAINTED THE NAME ON THE BONNET IN BLACK

AND THE STATION KIDS ON THE MAILMAN'S TRACK
                                             B                    F#
STILL LOOK OUT FOR THE DUST OF DEAD ON TIME.

              C#7                                                       F#
YEAH!  STILL LOOK OUT FOR THE DUST OF DEAD ON TIME.
