Verse 1
CTravelin' now on the low highway, three thousand miles to the Frisco Bay
Across the rivers wild and the lonesome plains Up the coast and down and back again

Am -0-0-----------------0--|And the ghost of America watching me ------------------------|
Through the broken windows of the factories
F C Am CPickin' bones of a better day as I roll down the low highway
Interlude (C*) | | | || Verse 2
CTravelin' now on the low highway by the yellow moon and the light of day
Snow white crown of the mountain tall To the valley down where the shadows fall
Am Met a man with a rifle in his hand
CBeen away to battle in a distant land
AmTaught him to hate taught him to kill
Now he's out on the road with a hole to fill
F C Nobody knows the price he paid
Am C G/BSo he's taken his toll on the low highway
Interlude Am | | | ||x2 C | C G/B|Am |C || Verse 3
CTravelin' now on the low highway, windows down, listenin'
Wheels turnin' round on the asphalt sayin' Every sound is a prophecy
AmHeard an old man grumble and a young girl cry
CBrick wall crumble, white dove fly
AmThe call for justice and the cry for peace
And the voice of reason and the roar of the beast
F C Am CAnd every mile was a prayer I prayed as I rolled down the low highway
