VERSE 1:

D                       G  A
I found me a new way to go
D                              G  A
I got sick of walking on the road
D                                 G  A
Those dead end streets I couldn't see
D                         G            A 
Was this the life to live was I really free
D                               G               A
I tried to think and understand why I felt this way
D                                  G               A
But something kept on bugging me I need some truth today
D                          G     A
I started yelling out your name
D                          G     A
Waiting for you to cure my pain

CHORUS:

Bm                      G           A 
You picked me up on the side of the road
Bm                             G             A
You asked me where I'm heading said I didn't know
Bm                       G        A
You said hop on in we'll go for a ride
Bm                    G    A   D
I am the one and only Taxi Cab Guy

VERSE 2:

D                      G     A
You saw me walking all alone
D                          G     A
You pulled on up along the side
D                         G     A
You asked me if I'm going home
D                      G      A
I hung my head with no reply
D                G                A
I said hey cabby how much does it cost
D                    G              A
I got no money and I guess I'm kind lost
D                         G     A
You told me that it'll be okay
D                           G        A
The price has been paid for anyway

CHORUS

BASS SOLO:

The tuning is a bit high for Tim's bass for some reason. 

A---5-7-5-------5---
E-5-------5-5-7---5- 2x

Then

G-7-7-7-9-7------------7----------------------------
D------------9-9-9-9-9---7--------------------------
A---------------------------5-5-5-7-5-----------5---
E-------------------------------------7-7-7-7-7---5- 2x

Then

A---5-4-2-1----------------------5-6-5-6-
E-----------5(hit several times)---------

VERSE 3:

D                    G      A
So here I am cruisen today
D                     G             A 
You telling strangers all along the way
D                         G     A
I ask them if they need a ride
D                        G                       A
They look at the car and think they'll never fit in
D                               G           A
But the car will never get full it'll never end
D                         G    A
Some ask me why I go this way
D                            G         A
Cause He's the only one that knows the way
D                             G      A
And remember it's a real ruff ride 
D                            G               A
So put your seat belt on and don't back seat drive
D                                   G     A
And another thing you might need to know
D                G      A
We only take the narrow road

CHORUS

The End!

There is a misconception on the Chorus. It Goes,

Bm D A
You picked me up on the side of the road
Bm G A
You asked me where I'm heading said I didn't know
Bm D A
You said hop on in we'll go for a ride
Bm G A D
I am the one and only Taxi Cab Guy
