Highway 40 Blues - Ricky Scaggs
Well these Highway 40 [F#m]Blues[B]
I've walked holes in both my [E]shoes
counted the days since I've been [F#m]gone[B]
and I'd love to see the lights of [E]home
Wasted time and money [A]too[B]
squandered youth in search of [E]truth[B] [C#m]
but in the end I had to [F#]lose
Lord above me paid my [B]dues
E E D A D (slide up to) E
got the Highway 40 Blues
The highway called when I was young
told me lies of things to come
fame and fortune lies ahead
it's what the billboard light had said
Shattered dreams, my mind is numb
my money's gone, stick out my thumb
my eyes are filled with bitter tears
Lord I ain't be home in years
Got the Highway 40 Blues
Ya know, I've rambled all around
like a rolling stone from town to town
met pretty girls I have to say
but none of them could make me stay
well, I've played the music halls and farm
had fancy clothes and big fine cars
things a country boy can't use
Dixie Land, I sure miss you
Got the Highway 40 Blues
