    This song has been done by dozens of singers, most recently by Bill Stains. It was written by Harvery Reid and originally published by Quahog Records of Maine. I have written to them to ask for the tab and have gotten no response.

    I found a the lyrics and a short clip of Bill Staines singing it and put in the chords I heard from the clip. If you can get the whole song and send it to me I'll do the rest. At least it's a start, lol.
    The clip is at: http://www.amazon.com/Show-Me-The-Road/dp/B000S40D2S


    Update: 22Dec11: Thanks for the mp3 Sparky.

    Here is how I hear it. You can leave out the D7 in each 3rd line if you like. I prefer it with the D7.
    If you notice any words that are not correct let me know and I'll fix them.

    Show Me The Road - Bill Staines

    Intro: Follow pattern of first verse

    [D] Too many miles I have [G] traveled all al-[D]-one
    Show me the road that [G] leads [D] to my [A] home,
    [D] Strangers, [D7] strangers, [G] everywhere I [D] roam
    Show me the road [G] that [D] leads [A] to my [D] home

    [D] Trouble, trouble, [G] trouble on my [D] mind
    Show me the road that [G] leads [D] to my [A] home,
    Finding [D] precious little [D7] peace, and [G] losing precious [D] time
    Show me the road [G] that [D] leads [A] to my [D] home // // [D7]// //

    Chorus
    [G] Show me a sign, [D] tell me a reason
    Cold winds have scattered the [G] seeds [D] I've [A] sown
    [D] Oh, just let me [D7] live to [G] see another [D] morning
    And show me the road [G] that [D] leads [A] to my [D] home

    Break: Follow pattern of first verse

    [D] Such a long, long journey it [G] seems we've traveled [D] on
    Show me the road that [G] leads [D] to my [A] home,
    Such a [D] short time here [D7] friends, and a [G] long time [D] gone
    Show me the road [G] that [D] leads [A] to my [D] home // // [D7]// //

    Chorus

    Break: Follow pattern of first verse

    [D] Rememberin' just the good times and [G] feeling just the [D] pain
    Show me the road that [G] leads [D] to my [A] home,
    I've been [D] hearing just the [D7] sad songs and [G] singing just the [D] bad
    Show me the road [G] that [D] leads [A] to my [D] home // // [D7]// //

    Chorus x 2

    [D] Oh, just let me [D7] live to [G] see another [D] morning
    And show me the road [G] that [D] leads [A] to my [D] home
    Show me the road [G] that [D] leads [A] to my [D] home
    Show me the road [G] that [D] leads [A] to my [D] home
