F
Lord Mary took to running with a travelin man

Left her momma crying with her head in her hands
       Bb                 F
Such a sad case so broken hearted
F
She say momma I got to go I gotta get out of here

I gotta get out of town

I'm tired of hanging around
        Bb                  F
I gotta roll on between the ditches
F
It's just an ordinary story bout the way things go

Round and round nobody knows
        Bb                 F
But the highway goes on forever
         Bb                F
That old highway rolls on forever
F
Lord she never would have done it if she hadn't got drunk

If she hadn't started running with a traveling man
       Bb                                F
If she hadn't started taking those crazy chances
F
She say daughter let me tell you Bout the traveling kind

Everywhere he's going such a very short time
         Bb                   F
He'll be long gone before you know it
         Bb                   F
He'll be long gone before you know it
        Dm                            C
She say never have I known it when it felt so good
Bb                          F
Never have I knew it when I knew I could
Dm                           C
Never have I done it when it looked so right
Bb
Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight

SOLO

F
This is down in the swampland anything goes

It's alligator bait and the bars don't close
         Bb                     F
It's the real thing down in Louisiana
F
Did you ever a Cajun when he really got mad

Really got trouble like a daughter gone bad
        Bb                     F
It gets real hot down in Louisiana
F
The stranger better move it or he's gonna get killed

He's gonna have to get it or a shotgun will
         Bb                  F
It ain't no time for lengthy speeches
            Bb                   F
There ain't no time for lengthy speeches
        Dm                            C
She say never have I known it when it felt so good
Bb                                  F
Never  have I knew it when I knew I could
Dm                           C
Never have I done it when it looked so right
Bb
Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight
        Dm                            C
She say never have I known it when it felt so good
Bb                                  F
Never  have I knew it when I knew I could
Dm                           C
Never have I done it when it looked so right
Bb
Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight

Fut the highway goes on forever
           Bb                  F
That ain't no way to stop the water

Why would you not simply capo this song on the 1st fret and play E, A, and B? Don't get me wrong. This is good. It's just easier with a capo.

good point... my fault
-guitar013 | 4/21/2009
I really like the song capoed at the third fret; played out of the key of D
...D, G, A, Bm
