G / D / |B / Em D | Picking up the pieces of my sweet shattered dream, C / G / |Dsus4 / D / I wonder how the old folks are to-night, G / D / |B / Em / Her name was Ann and I'll be damned if I re-call her face, C / D / |G She left me not knowing what to do.

2.

Turning 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 knowing I got no one left to blame.

chorus 2:

Carefree highway, 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.

bridge:

3.

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

chorus 1:

F / |C / D / |G / F / |C / D / | 2x
