CAPO 1

[G5] [F]

Every [C] road 
Has a [F] story to [C] tell
Of [F] dreams that have [C] soared
And [F] dreams that [F] fell

That says [F] out of con[C]trol
[F] Prospecting [C] riches 
That re[F]side in the [C] soul

CHORUS (abbreviated)
Throw this [F] love down the [C] highway
[F] See where it [F] turns
[F] Life is a [C] shell game
Lessons [F] lost, lessons [C] learned

[F]

There will never be a [C] time
Like the [F] time that is [C] now
To [F] reach for the [C] promise
Of [F] melody on the [F] bough

Break up the [C] silence
Make it [F] clear, make it [C] last
[F] Forgiveness [C] given
Break [F] away from the [C] past

CHORUS (full)
Throw this [F] love down the [C] highway
[F] See where it [F] turns
[F] Life is a [C] shell game
Lessons [F] lost, lessons [F] learned
There’s a [F] world of [C] wisdom in[F]side a fiddle [F] tune
Throw this [F] love down the [C] highway
[F] See where it takes [C] you

While the [C] mortar and [F] bricks may [C] crumble
[F] Time moves [C] along with a [F] dance-step [F] stumble

Throw this [F] love down the [C] highway
[F] See where… it takes [C] you
