Father, let us build a boat and sail a - way, there's nothing for you here,
E              Bm7              C#m7            G#m7 Amaj7                    A/B
  And Brother, let us throw our lot out upon the sea,     it's been done be - fore!


      D/E                   E/A         D/E                       E/A
I'm thinkin' 'bout a broken heart, I'm talkin' 'bout the break of dawn,
        D/E               E/A                D/E              E/A
You've loved me while I'm here, then you can miss me when I'm gone,
 D/E               E/A                D/E                 E/A
Sweet misunder - standing, won't you leave a poor boy a - lone?
        D/E                     E/A               E          D      C#m   D
I'm the one - eyed seed of a tumbleweed, in the belly of a rolling stone,
             C#m7          Bm7   Amaj7
Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah,  
E7sus4       D/E   E/A            D/E           E/A
 Back on the road-----  again!  | /__/  /__/  /  /  |  /   /   /   /  |

  D/E                     E/A         D/E             E/A
I had a little woman in Memphis, she wanted to be my bride,
            D/E                     E/A                   D/E             E/A
She said, "Settle on down, travel - ing man, and you can stay right by my side!"
   D/E              E/A               D/E                  E/A
I tried so hard to please her, but I couldn't hold out too long,
              D/E                  E/A                   E          D     C#m   D
'Cause, one Saturday night, I was laying in bed, and I heard that highway song,
             C#m7          Bm7   Amaj7
Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah,  
E7sus4       D/E   E/A            D/E           E/A
 Back on the road-----  again!  | /__/  /__/  /  /  |  /   /   /   /  |

     D/E                      E/A              D/E                 E/A
Now, one of these days, that highway song will lose it's appeal to me,
           D/E                     E/A
I'm gonna settle on down, like a natural born man, 
          D/E                      E/A 
I'm gonna live my life naturally, (Free and easy!)                                
D/E                  E/A                        D/E                     E/A
Till that day, the thunder's gonna roll, and I notice there's a sign of rain,
     D/E                 E/A                       E           D       C#m   D
So I grab my bags, and I pack my clothes, and I'm back on the road a - gain,
             C#m7          Bm7   Amaj7
Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah,  
E7sus4       D/E   E/A            D/E           E/A
 Back on the road-----  again!  | /__/  /__/  /  /  |  /   /   /   /  |

I'm thinkin' 'bout a broken heart, I've been talkin' 'bout the break of dawn,
        D/E               E/A               D/E              E/A
You've loved me while I'm here, and you can miss me when I'm gone,
             D/E               E/A                D/E                 E/A
And I said, sweet misunder - standing, won't you leave a poor boy a - lone?
               D/E                     E/A               E          D      C#m   D
'Cause I'm the one - eyed seed of a tumbleweed, in the belly of a rolling stone,
             C#m7                 Bm7   Amaj7
Back on the highway, yeah - yeah, yeah, yeah now,  
E7sus4       D/E   E/A            D/E           E/A

Here I am again, Holi - day Inn, same old four walls a - gain,
D/E                  E/A               D/E
Gee, but it's fine to be back home a - gain, woh now,
