Gordon Lightfoot - Hi'way Songs


CAPO: 3rd Fret




[INTRO:] D   A  C  G  D  (4x)

[VERSE 1:]
                A
When I walk the hills so high
 C         G                D
Around the town where I was born
                  A
New York seems so far away
       C     G                D     A  C  G  D
Though I was there just yesterday 


[VERSE 2:]
                 A
I have played on my guitar
   C     G                 D
In coffeehouses, halls and bars
              A
Everyone that I call friend
C          G              D     A  C  G  D
Knows they will not be forgot 


[VERSE 3:]
                      A
Trains and planes and rented cars
C        G                D
Singers, saints and other stars
               A
I suspect them every one
        C     G                     D
They'll never change, it's too much fun 


[CHORUS:]
A                E
Just for now I'd like to rest
G                 D
In the shade of a maple tree
A             E
To the blue Canadian sky
     G                    D                 E  A    E  A
I'll say a prayer for the world out there 


[VERSE 4:]
D               A
When I stand on my own sod
   C        G                   D
It feels so good to be home, by god
                    A
The winter wind has turned my head
      C      G                D     A  C  G  D
But I always came up warm somehow 


[VERSE 5:]
                   A
Bottles, beads and cigarettes
    C      G                  D
And lovers that I ain't found yet
               A
Picking with a friend till dawn
    C       G                D
And singing all those hi'way songs


[INTERLUDE:] A  C  G  D    A  C  G  D


[CHORUS:]
A                E
Just for now I'd like to rest
G                 D
In the shade of a maple tree
A             E
To the blue Canadian sky
     G                    D                 E  A    E  A
I'll say a prayer for the world out there 


[VERSE 6:]
D               A
When I walk the hills so high
 C         G                D
Around the town where I was born
                  A
New York seems so far away
       C     G                D
Though I was there just yesterday 


[VERSE 7:]
               A
I would travel all my life
   C     G                D
If loneliness was not the price
                     A
While heading north across that line's
    C    G        D
The only time I'm flying


[OUTRO:]     (## repeat and fade to end ##)
         D    A  C  G  D
