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
