Chords: C, F, Em, G, Dm, Bb, Gb, B, Db, Ab, Fm, Ebm, D, A, Gbm
I sell a line of plastics
      F             C
And I travel on the road
      F              Em
And I have a case of samples
        F             G
Which believe me is a load 

Every night a strange cafe
  F                 C
A strange hotel and then
F            Em
Early in the morning
     F      G    C
I am on the road again 

When the season's over
And my lonesome journey ends
           Dm          Em
That's the only time I see
   Dm            G
My family and my friends 

I drive up Ocean Parkway
      F               C
And before I stop the car
   F                Em
My ma leans out the window
        F              G  C
And she hollers, "Here we are!" 

Shake hands with your Uncle Max, mein boy
    F                   C
And here is your sister Shirl
    F                   Em
And here is your cousin Isabel
       Dm              G
That's Irving's oldest girl
And do you remember the Tishman twins
F            C
Gerald and Jerome
   F               C
We all came out to greet you
       F        G       C
And to wish you welcome home

And here is your cousin Yetta
      Ebm           Ab
Who expects another kid 

Whenever you're on the road mein boy
    Gb           Db
Wherever you may roam
      Gb               Fm
We'll all be here when you come back
   Gb       Ab      Db
To wish you welcome home

Note: personally, I prefer to go up a full step, not a half step,
      at the "Smallowitz" key change it makes it easier to play.
      For that version, the chords for the final three stanzas are:
         G / C / D / G / C / G
         A / D / G / D / G / Gbm / Em / A
         D / G / D / G / Gbm / G / A / D
