  • Yeah, his guitar slung across his back
    His dusty boots is his cadillac
    Flamin’ hair just a blowin’ in the wind
    Ain’t seen a bed in so long it’s a sin
    He left home when he was seventeen
    The rest of the world he had longed to see
    But everybody knows the boss
    A rolling stone who gathers no moss

    But you’d probably call him a tramp
    But it goes a little deeper than that
    He’s a highway chile, yeah

    Now some people say he had a girl back home
    Who messed around and did him pretty wrong
    They tell me it kinda hurt him bad
    Kinda made him feel pretty sad
    I couldn’t say what went through his mind
    Anyway, he left the world behind
    But everybody knows the same old story,
    In love and war you can’t lose in glory

    Now you’d probably call him a tramp
    But I know it goes a little deeper than that
    He’s a highway chile

    Walk on brother, yeah
    One more brother

    His old guitar slung across his back
    His dusty boots is his cadillac
    Flamin’ hair just a blowin’ in the wind
    Ain’t seen a bed in so long it’s a sin

    Now you may call him a tramp
    But I know it goes a little deeper than that
    He’s a highway chile

    Walk on brother
    Don’t let no one stop you
    Highway chile
    Yeah yeah yeah
    Highway chile
    Go on down the highway
    Highway chile
    Yeah yeah yeah
    Highway chile
