Sorrow Is a Highway

Written By: Jeff Austin
Appears on: Town by Town

Key of E minor

Em    G   C D   G

Verse 1:
My heart is like the white line
C             D             C        D    G
Divided, separated in these feelings over you
My mind, it is also like the white line      when without a bassist,
C         D            C       D     G       walk down G G/F# G/F
Endlessly searching, a man without a clue

Em                               G           D
You've got me thinking there's a fire down below
C                    G             D            G   
'Round and 'round in circles is as far as I can go
C                            G      G/f# Em
Same old repetition, feeling up and down again
G           C   D*
Sorrow is a highway
  C     D        G
It never seems to end

Verse 2:
Another day, it is ending
  C              D
I feel my feet upon the ground
   C         D    G
And know they walk alone
What do I care now though if another day is ending
   C               D              C         D      G
The days will end until my name is carved in stone alone

[ Chorus ]

Verse 3:
The time has come for leavin'
   C             D            C      D         G
The time to fall away like the pedals leave the rose
But what good does this leavin'
     C                   D
I can still hear my heart breakin'
   C        D     G
the sound it never goes

[ Chorus ]

   C                           G      G/f# Em
The same old repetition feelin' up and down again
G          C   D*
Sorry is a highway
  C     D        G
It never seems to end

Outro: Intro chords

*The riff played runs down G Aeolian starting at A on the 3rd string after the D
chord. I just mess around with it, Adam is too fast.
