Intro C  F  C  F

C                                            F
Don't know why they even bother putting this highway on the map
C                                      F             
Everybody that's ever been on it knows exactly where they're at
Hells on both ends of it
And no where's in between
                  C    F
This highway's mean

C                                     F
Seems like it's always hot down here, no matter when you come
C                                           F            
It's the kind of heat that holds you like a mama holds her son
G                            F 
Tight when he tries to walk, even tighter if he runs
It's a mean old dusty highway
F                                          G
But it's the only one that'll get you there
Am F
That'll get you there

Mean old highway
F            C                  Am
Stuck to the ground in Mississippi
         F                C 
It's the one'll set me free
It's the same one that I see
G                                          F 
Being ripped up off the ground and wrapped around me
G                                       C 
Don't let it fool you this highway's mean

C                              F     
I don't need a map to tell me where I am today
C                            F
This feeling that I have has always led the way
Down here, you're running from a broken heart
F                                       C 
Or to a heart that you have to break on this mean old highway
