Highway Forty Blues recorded by Ricky Skaggs written by Larry Cordle
G Am Well these Highway Forty blues D7 G I've walked holes in both my shoes Am Counted the days since I've been gone D7 G And I'd love to see the lights of home
C Wasted time and money too D7 G Squandered youth in search of truth Em Am But in the end I had to lose D7 Lord above I've paid my dues G Got the Highway Forty blues
Am The highway called when I was young D7 G Told me lies of things to come Am Fame and fortune lies ahead D7 G That's what the billboard lights had said
C Shattered dreams my mind is numb D7 G My money's gone stick out my thumb Em Am My eyes are filled with bitter tears D7 Lord I ain't been home in years G Got the Highway Forty blues
Am You know I've rambled all around D7 G Like a rolling stone from town to town Am Met pretty girls I have to say D7 G But none of them could make me stay
C Well I've played the music halls and bars D7 G Had fancy clothes and big fine cars Em Am Things a country boy can't use D7 Dixieland I sure miss you G Got the Highway Forty blues
