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
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
