Lyrics: 
 
Fm 
Yeah! His guitar slung across his back 
His dusty boots is his cadillac 
Flamin' hair just a-blowin' in the wind 
ain't seen a bed in so long it's a sin 
C#7/#9 
He left home when he was seventeen 
The rest of the world he was gonna see 
Fm 
And everybody knows the boss 
a rollin' stone gathers no moss 
 
G# 
Now you'd probably a-call him a tramp 
A# 
But it goes a little deeper than that 
Fm 
He's a highway chile 
Highway Chile 
 
Fm 
Some people say he had a girl back home 
who messed around and did her baby wrong 
They tell it kinda hurt him bad  
Kinda made him feel pretty sad 
I couldn't say what went through his mind 
Anyway he left the world behind 
Everybody knows the same old story 
in love or war you can lose your glory 
 
G# 
Now you'd probably a-call him a tramp 
A# 
But I know it goes a little deeper than that 
He's a highway chile 
 
Walk on brother  
 
C#7/#9 
His old guitar slung across his back 
His dusty boots is his cadillac 
Fm 
Flamin' hair just a-blowin' in the wind 
ain't seen a bed in so long it's a sin 
 
G# 
Now you'd probably a-call him a tramp 
A# 
But I know it goes a little deeper than that 
He's a highway chile 
 
Walk on brother 
Don't let no one stop you 
Highway Child
