HIGHWAY OF SORROW (Bill Monore, Pete Pyle)
from "True Life Blues, The Songs Of Bill Monroe" (Sugar Hill, SHCD-2209)

[ Tab from: ]
   G                                C                    G
I once had a darling, was kind, true and sweet.
G                                                         D
Life was so bright and gay, everything to please.
   G                          C                 G
I fell for another, who led my life astray.
               G                    D                 G
And now I live in sorrow, ?till my dying day

            G                               C              G
Down a Highway of Sorrow, I?m traveling along.
       G                                                       D
I?ve lost all my true friends, I?ve lost a happy home.
       G                                   C                   G
I?m headed for destruction, I?m on the wrong track.
             G                                     D              G
Down a Highway of Sorrow, there?s no turning back.

I went back to my darling, and I got down on my knees.
I begged here with tears and eyes, to give my poor heart ease.
But she was hurt so deeply, she could not forgive.
Now I live in sorrow, as long as I live
