Traveller chords – Chris Stapleton

 Chris Stapleton

Capo 3

 D  -  Bm7 

*The intro riff is the same basic riff used throughout the song. Hammer on and off the E string
on the D chord (alternating between D and Dsus2), and hammer on the D string on the Bm7 as soon 
as you make the chord, then hammer on and off on the B string (alternating between Bm7 and B7sus2).

Here's the basic idea, as well as the weird way he plays the Em7 in the final line of each verse
        Bm7    Em7*

Verse 1
 D Bm7 
I see the sunrise creeping in
 D Bm7 
Everything changes like the desert wind
Em7*                            A
Here she comes and then she's gone again

 D Bm7 
I'm just a traveller on this earth
 D Bm7 
Shut my heart behind the pocket of my shirt
 G Em7 
I just keep rolling till I'm in the dirt
 D Bm7 
‘Cause I'm a traveller, oh, I'm a traveller
 D Bm7 
I couldn't tell you honey, I don't know
 D Bm7 
Where I'm going but I've got to go
 G Em7 
‘Cause every turn reveals some other road
           D Bm7 
And I'm a traveller, oh, I'm a traveller

Verse 2
My heartbeat's rhythm is a lonesome sound
Just like the rubber turning on the ground
Always lost and nowhere bound


When I'm gone
 Em7 G 
Somebody else will have to feel this wrong
 Em7 G 
Somebody else will have to sing this song
 Em7 A 
Somebody else will have to sing along, sing along
