LYRICS/CHORDS

Hi' Way Songs

(D)  (A)  (C)  (G)  (D)

When I walk the (A) hills so high a(C)round the (G) town where (D) I was born
New York seems so (A) far away though (C) I was (G) there just (D) 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

(A) Just for now I'd (E) like to rest (G) in the shade of a (D) maple tree
(A) To the blue (E) Canadian sky
I'll (G) say a prayer for the (D) world out there (E) (A) (E) (A)

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

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 the only time I'm flying
