      JAMES TAYLOR - COUNTRY ROAD: From SWEET BABY JAMES album.
                     Released 1970.

---------------------------------------------------------------

      Tabbed by:PJVillanueva







Take to the highway, won't you lend me your name?
Your way and my way seem to be one and the same.
Mamma don't understand it, she wants to know where I've been.
I'd have to be some kind of natural born fool 
to want to pass that way again,
But you know I could feel it on a country road.

Sail on home to Jesus, won't you good girls and boys?
I'm all in pieces, you can have your own choice.
But I can hear a heavenly band full of angels 
and they're coming to set me free.
I don't know nothing 'bout the why or when 
but I can tell you that it's bound to be,
because I could feel it, child, yeah, on a country road.

I guess my feet know where they want me to go 
walking on a country road.

Take to the highway, won't you lend me your name?
Your way and my way seem to be one and the same, child
Mamma don't understand it, she wants to know where I've been.
I'd have to be some kind of natural born fool 
to want to pass that way again,
But I could feel it on a country road.

Walk on down, walk on down, walk on down, 
walk on down, walk on down a country road.
Na na na na na na na na na na na, country road, 
yeah, walking on a country road.

The "G" chord should be 5-x-x-4-3-3 not 5-x-x-0-0-3, and the Bm chord is actually Bm7.
