"Highway Girl" - The Tragically Hip
>From the EP THE TRAGICALLY HIP, 1987, MCA Records.
 
Wow, I didn't plan on doing this much tab but once I got started I
couldn't stop - even a solo for ya! I've never tabbed a solo
before and I'm playing on an acoustic so I'm not sure if
it's totally accurate. Corrections/comments are welcome.

 LYRICS:
=========
Well I'm going down to see my Highway Girl
Yeah, she just got back from around the world
I'm gonna get me a gun I'm gonna stand on guard
In a little white booth in her front yard
 
Throwing rocks at her window what could she do
If you throw enough rocks one might break through
Well she looked out her window when the police came
Yeah, to see a big tin man dancing in the rain
 
CHORUS:
 
Ohhhhhhhhh, my little Highway Girl
Ohhhhhhhhh, my little Highway Girl
 
Yeah...
 
SOLO
 
Don't you think babe you push a bit too fast
I said slowing down don't make it last
Yeah, she said a memory's never gonna set you free
Ohhhhh, go out and see that world and bring it home to me
 
CHORUS
 
Duncan Koerber
