Band: Coldplay
Song: Lost Highway
Live in Toronto 6th May 2001
Words & Music: Hank Williams, Sr.
From: Zachary
E-mail: cicak_cobing@yahoo.com

Note: I have a strong feeling that both acoustic & electric guitars is
      not Standard Tuning or maybe only the acoustic guitar. But anyway
      if you think it is other tunings then do so & change the chords
      notation given below. So that it will sound almost the same.

Standard Tuning: EADGbe

Chords Used:

  Cmaj Fmaj Gmaj A7
e| 0    1    3    0
b| 1    1    3    2
G| 0    2    0    0
D| 2    3    0    2
A| 3    3    2    0
E| 0    1    3    X

Note: Verse 1 & Verse 2 don't really have lots of guitaring but anyway
      here is the chords.

Verse 1:

Cmaj                              Fmaj
I'm a rollin' stone all alone and lost,

              Gmaj                A7
For a life of sin I have paid the cost,

   Fmaj                     Gmaj
As I walk by all the people say,

             A7              Fmaj    Cmaj
Just another guy on the lost highway,

Verse 2:

Cmaj                              Fmaj
Just a deck of cards and a jug of wine,

              Gmaj                   A7
And a woman's life makes a life like mine,

   Fmaj                    Gmaj
On the day we met, I went astray,

          A7                   Fmaj    Cmaj
I started going down that lost highway,

Note: You just got to listen to the song to understand this part. This
      is a acoustic part done by Chris while Jonny is on the electric
      in the 3rd & 4th verse. For those who don't know, p is pull off
      or drag to another barr in 1 strike, h is hammer or hit your
      finger on 1 barr with 1 finger on the lower barr in 1 strike, r
      is release your finger on a higher barr with another finger on
      the lower barr in 1 strike. So below you'll see that I've mixed
      in both plucking & struming into a tab chart.


   G A B  Ebsus46      Emin Ebmin C#min       Ebsus46

     Ebsus46          Ebaug5 Dadd9b5 Ebsus46

  Ebmin7 C#min7  Bsus46  Bbsus46  Absus46 Dsus46 A Ab F# Ebsus46 F
   Fmaj7 Cmaj

Note: Here the music gets hotter. So just play it on all the way.

Verse 3:

Cmaj                          Fmaj
I was just a lad, only twenty two,

                 Gmaj                 A7
Neither good nor bad, just a kid like you,

   Fmaj                             Gmaj
On the day we met, it's too late to pray,

          A7                   Fmaj    Cmaj
I started going down that lost highway,

Verse 4:

Cmaj                             Fmaj
Now boys don't start to ramblin' round,

                Gmaj                 A7
On this road of sin are you sorrow bound,

     Fmaj                          Gmaj
Take my advice or you'll curse the day,

            A7                     Fmaj    Cmaj
You started rollin' down that lost highway,

            A7                   Fmaj    Cmaj
You started goin' down that lost highway,

      A7             Fmaj    Cmaj
Goin' down that lost highway,

      A7             Fmaj    Cmaj
Goin' down that lost highway,

Note: I guess everything is not lost here, maybe for the instrumental
      part I might miss some stuff there cause I can't trace every
      single thing that Chris do. So enjoy the song!

This is not actually a Coldplay song. The version I know is by Jeff Buckley and he died before Coldplay probably started so theres no way he coppied them so I think he might have written it but correct me if it was someone else. I'm so glad that they did a cover of it as Coldplay and Jeff Buckley are 2 of my favourite artist/bands.

You stupid faggots, this is a Hank Williams Sr song, do your research.

Damn people are stupid on here. Coldplay covered this song as well as alot of other artists. If you look hard enough you will find that coldplay performed this at a concert. The recording is all over the p2p networks. So go look for it if you don't belive me.
