KEY TO THE HIGHWAY


Big Bill Broonzy


[A][E][D][D7][A][E][A][A7][D][Dm][A][E7]


I got the [A] key to the [E] highway,

[D] I'm billed out and bound to [D7] go,

I'm gonna [A] leave here running,

[E] I won’t be back no [A] more [A7][D][Dm][A][E7]


I'm going [A] back to the [E] border,

[D] Where I'm better [D7] known,

[A] You didn’t do nothin’

[E] But drive a good man away from [A] home [A7][D][Dm][A][E7]


[A][E][D][D7][A][E][A][A7][D][Dm][A][E7]


So give me [A] one more kiss, [E] mama,

[D] Just before I [D7] go,

When I [A] leave this time

[E] I won’t be back no [A] more [A7][D][Dm][A][E7]


Now, when the [A] moon creeps over the [E] mountain,

[D] I'll be on my [D7] way

I'm gonna [A] walk, walk this ol' [E] highway,

Until the break of [A] day [A7][D][Dm][A][E7]


[A][E][D][D7][A][E][A][A7][D][Dm][A][E7]


I got the [A] key to the [E] highway,

[D] I'm billed out and bound to [D7] go,

I'm gonna [A] leave here running,

[E] I won’t be back no [A] more [A7][D][Dm][A][E7][A]
