Ricky Skaggs - Highway 40 Blues Lyrics

  • Well, these Highway Forty 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've paid my dues.
  • Got the Highway Forty 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 Forty blues.
  • --- Instrumental ---
  • 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 Forty blues...
