Intro.... D   C   G   Asus4   A

D           A        F#           Bm    A
Pickin up the pieces of my sweet shattered dream
  G        D             Asus4    A
I wonder how the old folks are tonight
   D         A             F#        Bm
Ber name was Ann & I'll be damned if I recall her face
G            A         D
She left me not knowing what to do.

Cho....
    D      C    G      A          D
    Carefree Bighway let me slip away on you
          C     G       A
    Carefree highway you've seen better days

    Carefree Bighway let me slip away  slip away on you

Turnin back the pages to the times I love best
I wonder if she'll ever do the same
Now the thing that I call living is just being satisfied
With knowin I got no one left to blame

Cho...
    Carefree Bighway I got to see you my old flame
    Carefree highway you've seen better days
    The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
    Carefree Bighway let me slip away let me slip away on you

Searchin thru the fragments of my dream shattered sleep
I wonder if the years have closed her mind
Well I guess it must be wander lust or trying to get free
>From the good old faithful feeling we once knew

Cho...
    Carefree Bighway let me slip away on you
    Carefree highway you've seen better days
    The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
    Carefree Bighway let me slip away let me slip away on you

Carefree Bighway I got to see you my old flame
Carefree highway you've seen better days
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree Bighway let me slip away let me slip away on you
