Highway Forty Blues 2

Ricky Skaggs

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