     Livin' easy,        livin' free,
D D/F# G       D/F#    A A
     Season ticket on a one way ride
A A A           D D/F# G             D D/F# G

     Takin' ev'rythin' in my stride.



     Don't need reason, don't need rhyme,
     Ain't nothin' i'd rather do.
     goin' down, party time.        E5  <-----instead of an A.
     my friends are gonna be there too.


Chorus
             A    A  A   D/A      G   --†
    i'm on a highway to hell             Repeat

    on the   highway to hell          --†


Additional verses

    no stop signs, speed limit,
    nobody's gonna slow me down.
    like a wheel, gonna spin it.
    nobody's gonna mess me around.

    Hey, satan, pay'n' my dues,
    playin' in a rockin' band.
    hey, momma, look at me.
    I'm on my way to the promised land.

Another version:
---------------------


                        Highway to Hell
                        ---------------
                           AC/DC

                            

As has been posted already the main riff goes like:

E ---------------|----------------|----------------|----------------
B ---2---2---2---|---3---3---3----|---3---3---3----|---3---3---3----
G ---2---2---2---|---2---2---0----|---2---2---0----|---2---2---0----

E -----------|-------
B -------2---|---2---
G ---2---2---|---2---
D ---0---2---|---2---
A -------0---|---0---
E ---2-------|-------
 
 
The chorus then goes like this:

   on the    high - way   to hell

E ----2---|-------------------2----|--
B ----3---|---2---2---2---2---3----|--
G ----2---|---2---2---2---2---2----|--
