Dave Gunning - New Highway


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: C   F  G  (4x)

   C              F         G
My father came to Westville
    C                        F  G
And helped to build the town
     F                     C
They damn near broke their backs
Dm7                 G
Trying to break the ground
         C                  F        G
But some dreams are not for catching
     C               F  G
They seldom ever stay
     F                C
They run like a river of our tears
G                C    F  G  C   F  G
Down the new highway


   C            F      G
My mother was a tailor
    C                  F     G
She fashioned all my clothes
  F                 C
I wore those burlap britches
       Dm7          G
Down a dozen dusty roads
        C               F          G
But she passed away in 'Sixty-Nine
      C              F   G
Thank god before the day
    F              C
She didn't have to watch our dreams go
G                C     
Down the new highway


        Am            G        C
Now the main street's dark and silent
      F                 C
Not a shadow or a sound
    Am       G          C
But midnight brings the spirits out
         Dm7                    G
From the coal mines in the ground
      C                    F          G
In my dreams they all come back again 
    C                 F   
The good folks of the day
G           F                  C
They're all trying to save the life they knew from going 
G                C     
Down the new highway


INTERLUDE: C   F  G  (4x)


   C             F         G
My brother was a millwright
   C                  F    G
He helped to build my home
        F               C
But the work ran out as did my wife
    Dm7             G
And now I'm all alone
    C            F      G
Without a steady income
           C              F    G
I couldn't ask for her to stay
     F                   C
So I sent my love and my two young kids
G                C     
Down the new highway


INSTRUMENTAL: Am  G  C   F  C   Am  G     C   Dm7  G
              C   F  G  C   F  G  C   F  G


    C             F         G
I remember Freddy Landsburg
       C                F   G
At the farm beside the road
     F             C
He'd wave to every passing car
   Dm7            G
He never was alone
        C               F          G
But the 4-lane left him breathless
        C              F    G
When it took his view away
        F                 C                    
Now his spirit haunts the old roadside 
         G                 C 
Where it meets the new highway


    Am         G       C
But all things come to pass
           F                 C
You see it everywhere you turn
     Am              G      C
It's just a big race to the finish line
   Dm7                   G
I hope someday we'll learn
         C                  F        G
But some dreams are not for catching
     C              F  G
They seldom ever stay
     F                C                    
They run like a river of our tears 
G                C 
Down the new highway


                        F        G
Some dreams are not for catching
     Am          C
They seldom ever stay
     F                C                    
They run like a river of our tears 
G                C     F  G  C
Down the new highway
F                C     F  G  C
Down the new highway
F                C      F     C
Down the new highwaaaay-yay-e-yay
F                C   
Down the new highway


OUTRO: F  G  C    F  G  C
