These Highway 40 blues I've walked holes in both my shoes Counted the days since I've been gone And I'd love to see the lights of home Wasted time and money too Squandered youth in search of truth But in the end I had to lose Lord above, I paid my dues Got the Highway 40 blues The highway called when I was young Told me lies of things to come Fame and fortune lies ahead That's what the billboard lights had said Shattered dreams, my mind is numb My money's gone, stick out my thumb My eyes are filled with bitter tears Lord, I ain't been home in years Got the Highway 40 blues (Instrumental Break) You know I've rambled all around Like a rolling stone from town to town Met pretty girls, I have to say But none of them could make me stay Well, I've played the music halls and bars Had fancy clothes and big fine cars Things a country boy can't use Dixieland, I sure miss you Got the Highway 40 blues (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2011)
