** "Songbook" Songbook.CarefreeHighway -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: Gordon Lightfoot, 1973[1][2]


D C G Asus4 A
D A F# Bm
Picking up the pieces of my sweet shattered dream
G D Asus4 A
I wonder how the old folks are tonight
D A F# Bm
Her name was Ann and I'll be damned if I recall her face
G A D
She left me not knowing what to do
 
Chorus
C G A D
Carefree highway, let me slip away on you
C G A
Carefree highway, you've seen better days
Bm A G D/F# Esus4 E
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
D C G Asus4 A D A
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you
 
D A F# Bm
Turning back the pages to the times I love best
G D Asus4 A
I wonder if she'll ever do the same
D A F# Bm
Now the thing that I call living is just being satisfied
G A D
With knowing I got no one left to blame
 
C G A D
Carefree highway, I got to see you my old flame
C G A
Carefree highway, you've seen better days
Bm A G D/F# Esus4 E
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
D C G Asus4 A D A
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you
 
D A F# Bm
Searching through the fragments of my dream shattered sleep
G D Asus4 A
I wonder if the years have closed her mind
D A F# Bm
Well I guess it must be wander lust or trying to get free
G A D
From the good old faithful feeling we once knew
 
C G A D
Carefree highway, let me slip away on you
C G A
Carefree highway, you've seen better days
Bm A G D/F# Esus4 E
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
D C G Asus4 A D A D
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you
 
C G A D
Carefree highway, I got to see you my old flame
C G A
Carefree highway, you've seen better days
Bm A G D/F# Esus4 E
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
D C G Asus4 A D
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you
