Lost Highway Saloon
Recorded by Johnny Bush
Written by Brian Burns

C Em
On a dark deserted highway in the southwest Texas hills
F G7
I grew tired of the journey and the rollin’ of the wheels
C Am
So I pulled off to the roadside there beneath the midnight moon
C F G7 C
By flashing neon remnants that read The Lost Highway Saloon

Em
I walked into the rundown ruins time had left around the bend
F G7
An old man in a worn out hat smiled and said come in
C Am
I dropped a nickel in the jukebox while the old man drew my beer
F G7 C
And I let the sound of the music drown the road noise from my ears

Am Em F C
Hank Williams sang a sad one as I sat back down again
Am F Dm G7
Then I heard a host of other ghostly voices joining in
Am Em F C
There’s was Ernest Webb and Lefty in an old familiar tune
Am F Dm G7 C
Playin’ on the haunted jukebox at the Lost Highway Saloon

Em
There were people all around me where there was no one before
F G7
And the clicking of their boot heels rambled through the old dance floor
C Am C
The room was filled with smoke and laughter Bob Wills fiddle played
F G7 C
Tommy Duncan sang and the Texas Playboys played the night away

Am Em F C
I listened to the songs I knew and a few I’d never heard
Am F Dm G7
As my heroes sang for me that night I hung on every word
Am Em F C
I could smell the whiskey on Hank’s breath and Patsy Cline’s perfume
Am F Dm G7 C
All around the haunted jukebox at the Lost Highway Saloon

Spoken:

Em
Then the music softly faded the laughter slowly died
F G7
And the old man tipped his hat to me as I bid him goodnight
C F Am
He said you’ve come a long way son then he called me by my name
F C F
And he said you’ve still got a long way to go
G7 C
And no two journey’s ever end the same

Am Em F C
Many times I’ve rode that highway lookin’ for that place again
Am F Dm G7
But there’s only hills and open fields and soon the highway ends
Am Em F C
I guess our time is like that open road and our lives are merely tunes
Am F Dm G7 C
Playin’ on the haunted jukebox at the Lost Highway Saloon

Am Em
So if you see that light some lonely night
F C
Stop in and hear the tunes
Am F Dm G7 C
Playin’ on the haunted jukebox at the Lost Highway Saloon
