The bluegrass tune? Not familiar w/ OAITW doing it, but I'm pretty sure it's a Bill Monroe original.

something like this?
Code: Select all
D                   G               D
Traveling down this long lonesome highway
                        A
I'm so lonesome I could cry
D                  G                D
Memories of how we once loved each other
                A          D
And now we are saying good-bye.

On and on I'll follow my darling
And I wonder where she can be
On and on I'll follow my darling
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me.

I've cried I've cried for you little darling
It breaks my heart to hear your name
My friends they also love you my darling
And they think that I am to blame.

I have to follow you my darling
I can't sleep when the sun goes down
By your side is my destination
The road is clear and that's where I'm bound.

Thanks!, thats just what i was looking for. OAITW play it on breakdown. I know there are a few versions of that record so maybe its not on all of them. Thanks again.

Yeah, you can play it like that or you can play it in the key of A - Capo 2nd fret.


G C
Traveling down this long lonesome highway
G D
I'm so lonesome I could cry
G C G
Memories of how we once loved each other
D G
And now we are saying good-bye.

Both ways are great, just switching it up a little bit. Pretty sure that how O&ITW played it.

And yes, they played a bunch of Monroe tunes.
Hey, how do you think jerry would feel about the world today???
