[Chorus] (x2)
  Em7           G                 C
Oh, I dream a highway back to you love
     Em7     G            C
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
   Em7     G              C
A silver vision come and rest my soul
   Em7      G            C
I dream a highway back to you.

[Verse]
John he's kicking out the footlights
The Grand Ole Opry's got a brand new band
Lord, let me die with a hammer in my hand
I dream a highway back to you.
I think I'll move down into Memphis
And thank the hatchet man who forked my tongue
I lie and wait until the wagons come
And dream a highway back to you.
The getaway kicking up cinders
An empty wagon full of rattling bones
Moon in the mirror on a three-hour jones
I dream a highway back to you.

[Chorus]
  Em7           G                 C
Oh, I dream a highway back to you love
     Em7     G            C
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
   Em7     G              C
A silver vision come and rest my soul
   Em7      G            C
I dream a highway back to you.

[Verse]
Which lover are you, Jack of Diamonds?
Now you be Emmylou and I'll be Gram
I send a letter, don't know who I am
I dream a highway back to you.
I'm an indisguisable shade of twilight
Any second now I'm gonna turn myself on
In the blue display of the cool cathode ray
I dream a highway back to you.
I wish you knew me, Jack of Diamonds
Fire-riding, wheeling when I lead 'em up
Drank whisky with my water, sugar in my tea
My sails in rags with the staggers and the jags
I dream a highway back to you.

[Chorus]
  Em7           G                 C
Oh, I dream a highway back to you love
     Em7     G            C
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
   Em7     G              C
A silver vision come and rest my soul
   Em7      G            C
I dream a highway back to you.

[Verse]
Now give me some of what you're having
I'll take you as a viper into my head
A knife into my bed, arsenic when I'm fed
I dream a highway back to you.
Hang overhead from all directions
Radiation from the porcelain light
Blind and blistered by the morning white
I dream a highway back to you.
Sunday morning at the diner
Hollywood trembles on the verge of tears
I watched the waitress for a thousand years
Saw a wheel within a wheel, heard a call within a call
I dreamed a highway back to you.

[Chorus]
  Em7           G                 C
Oh, I dream a highway back to you love
     Em7     G            C
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
   Em7     G              C
A silver vision come and rest my soul
   Em7      G            C
I dream a highway back to you.

[Verse]
Step into the light, poor Lazarus
Don't lie alone behind the window shade
Let me see the mark death made
I dream a highway back to you.
I dream a highway back to you.
What will sustain us through the winter?
Where did last years lessons go?
Walk me out into the rain and snow
I dream a highway back to you.

[Chorus]
  Em7           G                 C
Oh, I dream a highway back to you love
     Em7     G            C
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
   Em7     G              C
A silver vision come and rest my soul
   Em7      G            C
I dream a highway back to you.

i think this is really close. the final "C" might have a slight variation, but i think you're mostly on it. Thanks for taking the time to do this. Gratitude!

I think it's in B. Try B, E, G#m. Or capo 2 A, D, F#m.

I saw an arrangement on Heartwood guitar (http://www.heartwoodguitar.com/chords/gillian-welch-i-dream-a-highway/). They have it as capo 4 Em, G, C/G. Love this song.
