Did not find a listing for this, so I
sat down and figured it out.
This is also one of my favorite Kate Wolf songs.
 
Back Roads By: Kate Wolf
From:1976 Album..Back Roads
No capo:  Key of G

Verse 1

G              D                        Am7            D7
I'll take the backroads home through the open country side.
Am                   Bm    C            D7       G
Letting things slip by.......in drawn out time...I'll
            Em                  Bm                C
take the long way home on the backroads of this life
Am7              D7            G      C
..taking time to see what goes by.

Chorus

Bdim       A       A7                   D    E
Coming and going, there's no dividing line. What you're
        B    C                D7   G            Em       
headed for, someone's left behind.....And the shortest road
      Bm          C        Am7           D7               G
ain't always the best. Sometimes let a backroad take you home

Verse 2

G              D                  Am7           D7
A back road is so easy, it just rambles on and on.
Am                Bm   C           D7    G
Take it or leave it,....as rolls along.
          Em               Bm            C          
Drifts through things it cannot change, and doesn't
    Am7                        D7                G      C
even try. Wouldn't that be something for you and I.

Chorus

Bdim       A       A7                   D    E
Coming and going, there's no dividing line. What you're
        B    C                D7   G            Em       
headed for, someone's left behind.....And the shortest road
      Bm          C        Am7           D7               G
ain't always the best. Sometimes let a backroad take you home

Verse 3

G                 D                Am7          D7
Anyplace you're bound, you'll get there someday.
Am                    Bm    C               D7       G
You're the one who chooses...what you see along the way.
      Em          Bm              C               Am7
And when the heartaches seem too much for you to bear.
              D7                     G      C
There's a back road winding everywhere.

Chorus

Bdim       A       A7                   D    E
Coming and going, there's no dividing line. What you're
        B    C                D7   G            Em       
headed for, someone's left behind.....And the shortest road
      Bm          C        Am7           D7               G
ain't always the best. Sometimes let a backroad take you home
