Year: 1976 - Album: Chronicle, Vol. 1: The 20 Greatest Hits
I got the version from the "Chronicle", but there's also a live-version on "Live in Germany" VERSE: D G Was Ridin' along side the highway, rollin' up the country side. D G Thinkin' I'm the devil's heatwave, what you burn in your crazy mind? D C G Saw a slight distraction standin' by the road; C A She was smilin' there, yellow in her hair; D Do you wanna, I was thinkin', would you care. CHORUS: A Sweet Hitch-a-Hiker, G D We could make music at the Greasy King. A Sweet Hitch-a-Hiker, G Won't you ride on my fast machine? VERSE: D G Cruisin' on thru the junction, I'm flyin' 'bout the speed of sound, D G Noticin' peculiar function, I ain't no roller coaster show me down. D C G I turned away to see her, Woah! she caught my eye, C A But I was rollin' down, movin' too fast; D Do you wanna, She was thinkin' can it last. CHORUS SOLO during D C G C A D VERSE: D G Was busted up along the highway, I'm the saddest ridin' fool alive. D G Wond'ring if you're goin' in my way, won't you give a poor boy a ride? D C G Here she comes a ridin', Lord, She's flyin' high. C A But she was rollin' down, movin' too fast; D Do you wanna, She was thinkin' can I last. Then repeat the chorus 3 times and fade out. Dat's it. Enjoy!
