[E] And Brother, [Bm7]let us throw our [C#m7]lot out upon the[G#m7] sea,[Amaj7] it's been done be - [A/B]fore!
I'm th[D/E]inkin' 'bout a broken [E/A]heart, I'm t[D/E]alkin' 'bout the break of [E/A]dawn,
You've l[D/E]oved me while I'm [E/A]here, then you can [D/E]miss me when I'm [E/A]gone,
S[D/E]weet misunder - st[E/A]anding, won't you l[D/E]eave a poor boy a - [E/A]lone?

I [D/E]had a little woman in Me[E/A]mphis, she w[D/E]anted to be my b[E/A]ride,
She said, "S[D/E]ettle on down, travel - [E/A]ing man, and you can s[D/E]tay right by my [E/A]side!"
I t[D/E]ried so hard to p[E/A]lease her, but I c[D/E]ouldn't hold out too [E/A]long,
'Cause, one Sa[D/E]turday night, I was l[E/A]aying in bed, and I he[E]ard that hi[D]ghway [C#m]song,[D]

Now, [D/E]one of these days, that h[E/A]ighway song will [D/E]lose it's appeal to [E/A]me,
I'm gonna s[D/E]ettle on down, like a na[E/A]tural born man,
I'm gonna [D/E]live my life naturally, ([E/A]Free and easy!)
[D/E]Till that day, the th[E/A]under's gonna roll, and I n[D/E]otice there's a sign of [E/A]rain,
So I [D/E]grab my bags, and I [E/A]pack my clothes, and I'm b[E]ack on the r[D]oad a - [C#m]gain,[D]
Back on the h[C#m7]ighway, yeah, [Bm7]yeah, [Amaj7]yeah,
