Two Highways

Ricky Skaggs

            G                         A               D       

1. Two highways lay before me. Which one would I choose?

2. Perils today are many as I set out on my way

3. Wishing now that you had found a word or two to say


             G                             A                                 D

1. Down one lane I'd find happiness and down the other I would lose

2. If I lose your love, I know that I can't call it back someday

3. But the morning came and we both knew my eyes gave it away


             G                     A                    Bm               G

1. There is no one that I can trust; I must decide alone

2. Rambler, lonely rambler just calls any place his home

3. As I kissed your cheeks and said goodbye, I thought only time will tell


             G                                               Em                       A

1. My decision is an awful one. Which road will take me home?


             G                                  Bb       A       D

2. But Nashville's lights, how beautiful you shine

3. And you can't draw water from an empty well



                    G                            A                                 D

In the morning, would I wake to find down the wrong road I had gone?

  G                       A                   D

Will I hear the melodies I've searched for oh-so long?

   G                    A                 Bm                    E

Only time will tell if I have made a loser's choice

          G                                                            Bb         A            D

Hello sadness, cries my inner soul. Goodbye lover, moans my voice
