[Lyrics]
Fm
Yeah! His guitar slung across his back
His dusty boots is his cadillac
Flamin' hair just a-blowin' in the wind
ain't seen a bed in so long it's a sin
C#7#9
He left home when he was seventeen
The rest of the world he was gonna see
Fm
And everybody knows the boss
a rollin' stone gathers no moss

G#
Now you'd probably a-call him a tramp
A#
But it goes a little deeper than that
Fm
He's a highway chile
Highway Chile

Fm
Some people say he had a girl back home
who messed around and did her baby wrong
They tell it kinda hurt him bad
Kinda made him feel pretty sad
I couldn't say what went through his mind
Anyway he left the world behind
Everybody knows the same old story
in love or war you can lose your glory

G#
Now you'd probably a-call him a tramp
A#
But I know it goes a little deeper than that
He's a highway chile

Walk on brother

C#7#9
His old guitar slung across his back
His dusty boots is his cadillac
Fm
Flamin' hair just a-blowin' in the wind
ain't seen a bed in so long it's a sin

G#
Now you'd probably a-call him a tramp
A#
But I know it goes a little deeper than that
He's a highway chile

Walk on brother
Don't let no one stop you
Highway Child

You're right Lincoln - except it's "Are You Experienced." This is truly one of those hidden gems on that album that gets outshined by the other songs.

You're both right i have 'war heroes' and 'are you experienced', and its on both but war heroes version is better.
