Life is a Highway by Tom Petty/Rascal Flatts

Intro: Dm C Bb F C Bb C (2x)

Verse 1
Life’s like a road that you travel on
There’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend; sometimes you stand; sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar come ride with me to the distant shore
Dm		    C
We won’t hesitate to break down the garden gate
Bb                                      G
There’s not much time left today

Dm  C    Bb                      F                         C    Bb   C       
Life is a highway I wanna ride it all night long
Dm-C              Bb		  F		      C  Bb C
If you’re going my way, I wanna drive it all night long

Verse 2 (same as verse 1 chords)
Through all these cities and all these towns
It’s in my blood and it’s all around 
I loved you now like I loved you then this is the road and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver’s lights
Knock me down and up again you’re in my blood I’m not a lonely man
There’s no load I can hold 
Road’s so rough I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ‘em we’re survivors

Gm              Bb                       Dm       C                                    Gm
There was a distance between you and I (echo: between you and I)
		       Bb				      C
A misunderstanding once, but now we look it in the eye
(Solo: Adam…. While band plays intro)
(Last part, sing and play last part of verse two “There’s no load…..)

Think the tab is great! And is quite similar to the song. Don't actually see why the earlier comments are so negative! Of Course it don't sound like the song, when you don't play it with the same rhythm, i played it on piano sound quite right!

I want to post or [tab]
