G / / / |C / G / | I once had a darling wife, kind true and sweet, G / / / |/ / |D / / / Life was so bright and gay every-thing com-plete, |G / / / |C / G / I fell for a-nother - who led my life a-stray, |G / / / |D / |G / / / And now I live in sorrow - 'til my dying day.

chorus:

|G / / / |C / |G / Down the High-way of Sorrow - I’m trave-ling a-lone, |G / / / |/ / |D / / / I’ve lost all my children, I’ve lost a happy home, |G / / / |C / |G / I’m headed for de-struction, I’m on the wrong track, |G / / / |D / |G / / / | Down the High-way of Sorrow - there’s no turning back.

I went back to my darling and I got down on my knees, I begged her with tear dimmed 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.
