Willie Nelson "On the Road Again" Chords and Lyrics

Although I do quite like American country music, including the legendary Willie Nelson, I don't feature too many on my website, perhaps a few on the Folk Songs chords or Golden Oldies chords pages.

I've had a few requests from Facebook friends for Willie Nelson songs, and two specifically for "On the Road Again", so I have worked out the chords and lyrics and added them to the Golden Oldies page ( the song was #1 in the US Charts in 1980, having been written for the soundtrack of the movie "Honeysuckle Rose".)

The original version of the song is in the key of E major, with chords: E, G#m, F#m, A and B. Not the easiest of chord sequences for early learners, so I've transcribed the song to the key of C major, which makes for a much more manageable set of chords: C, Em, Dm, F and G. Put a capo on the 4th fret to bring the key back up to E, if you want to play along with the original - otherwise move the capo until you find the chords are a good fit for your vocals.
