HI'WAY SONGS (Gordon Lightfoot) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1972 When I walk the hills so high Around the town where I was born New York seems so far away Though I was there just yesterday. I have played on my guitar In coffeehouses, halls and bars Everyone that I call friend Knows they will not be forgot. Trains and planes and rented cars Singers, saints, and other stars I suspect them everyone They'll never change it's too much fun. Just for now I'd like to rest In the shade of a maple tree To the blue Canadian sky I'll say a prayer for the world out there. When I stand on my own sod It feels so good to be home, by God The winter wind has turned my head But I always came up warm somehow. Bottles, beads, and cigarettes And lovers that I ain't found yet Picking with a friend 'til dawn Singing all those hi'way songs. (bridge) Just for now I'd like to rest In the shade of a maple tree To the blue Canadian sky I'll say a prayer for the world out there. When I walk the hills so high Around the town where I was born New York seems so far away Though I was there just yesterday. I would travel all my life If loneliness was not the price Heading north across that line's Is the only time I'm flyin'. (Transcribed by David Story - March 2013)
