          D                             G                 D
From the hills of Casey Wyoming Where life's wooley and wild
        D                                    E7       A   
Came a navy brat in a cowboy hat And that Copenhagen smile
          D                                  G            G   F#    E
And from bucking broncos to honky tonks He always sang a cow-boy's song
             D                    B7              G       A     D    
And we were much too young having too much fun As we all sang along

CHORUS (key of D):
        G             D   
And he sang Life's a Highway
              G                         D
There's only one way you're gonna get through it
           G                 D         B7  
When she starts to twist be more like Chris
          E7                 B  n.c.
Pull your hat down tight and    just LeDoux it
            D
When that whistle blows and the crowd explodes
           G            G s F#    E       (s=slide use F form of both chords helps.)
And them pickup men are at your side
                D         A          D                     D A7 D key change E
They tell you good ride cowboy Good ride  1.)"take a ride"


            E                            A                    E
From gold buckles to gold records Once again he was spinning round
      E                                               F#            B
Took the whole world on And he turned us on to that Western Under-ground
            E                                
And from Bareback Jack to This Cowboy's Hat 
      A                   A s G#   F#m 
The songs were stronger than  his pain
              E                  C#7                         
And he would not slow down from town to town 
               A        B          E
Like children running through the rain

CHORUS (key of E):
         A             E         
And he sang Life's a Highway
              A                         E  
There's only one way you're gonna get through it
            A                E          C#7
When she starts to twist be more like Chris
          F#7                B n.c.    
Pull your hat down tight and    just LeDoux it
             E
When that whistle blows and the crowd explodes
           A             A s G# F#m  
And them pickup men are at your side
                E         B          E    
They tell you good ride cowboy Good ride

to chorus

ENDING: easier to play if A=002220 and G#=001110
E                                         A             A   G#   F#m
I bet he crossed that river Jordan With Saint Peter on the other side
          E         B          E   A      E          B          E   F#  
Singing good ride cowboy good Ride   Say good ride cowboy good Ride
