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 
Her name was Ann and I'll be damned if I recall her face
G               A               D
She left me not knowing what to do.

         C       G       A            D
Carefree highway, let me slip away on you
         C       G            A 
Carefree highway, you've seen better days
    Bm            A             G         D/F#  Esus4 E
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
D        C       G       Asus4     A
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you

D C G Asus4 A D C G Asus4 A

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

Carefree highway, 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 highway, let me slip away, slip away on you

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

Carefree highway, 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 highway, let me slip away, slip away on you
Let me slip away on you

Carefree highway, 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 highway, let me slip away, slip away on you
