Highway Forty Blues
Ricky Skaggs

Intro E  F#m  B  E  G D A E

                         F#m    B                             
Well these Highway Forty Blues,  
                             E
I've walked holes in both my shoes.
                                 F#m   B                                 
Counted the days since I've been gone,  
                                  E
And I'd love to see the lights of home.
 E7                   A    B                              E     B
Wasted time and money too,  Squandered youth in search of truth,
C#m                     F#                           B
But in the end I had to lose Lord above I've paid my dues
                      E       G D A E
got the Highway Forty Blues.

                              F#m   B                          E
The highway called when I was young, Told me lies of things to come.
                      F#m    B                                    E   
Fame and fortune lies ahead, That's what the billboard lights had said.
E7                          A    B                              E    B
Shattered dreams my mind is numb, My money's gone stick out my thumb.
C#m                            F#                               B
My eyes are filled with bitter tears, Lord I ain't been home in years,
                      E      G D A E
Got the Highway Forty Blues.

(chords played while steel guitar riff played)

A  B  E  B  C#m  F#m  B  E   G D A E

                          F#m     B
You know I've rambled all around, 
                                  E
Like a rolling stone from town to town.
                           F#m   B
Met pretty girls I have to say, 
                               E
but none of them could make me stay.
          E7                         A     B      
Well I've played the music halls and bars, 
                               E    B
Had fancy clothes and big fine cars,
C#m                        F#                          B
Things a country boy can't use, Dixie Land I sure miss you,
                      E      G A D E
Got the Highway Forty Blues.
