Key To The Highway

Skip James

I got the [A]key to the [E]highway, 

[D7]Billed out and bound to go. 

I’m gonna [A]leave here running; 

[E]Walking’s much too [A]slow. [D] [A] [E]


I’m going [A]back to the [E]border 

[D7]Woman, where I’m better known. 

You know you [A]haven’t done nothing, 

[E]Drove a good man from [A]home. [D] [A] [E]


When the [A]blue peeks over the [E]mountains 

[D7]I’ll be on my way. 

I’m gonna [A]roam this old highway 

[E]Until the break of [A]day. [D] [A] [E]


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

[D7]Just before I go, 

‘Cause when I [A]leave this time you know I, 

[E]I won’t be back no [A]more. [D] [A] [E]
