Key: 

  			
Intro 
Dm  C  Bb  Em  E/G#  Am 

verse 1 
Am                                Dm    C 
Your life stepped lightly out our hands 
     Bb               C                 F  Em E/G# Am 
When no one's looking out you understand 
                                             Dm    C 
Your world was a wheel but the cog ceased to turn 
    Bb                      F/A         Gm7      C 
The bottom fell out and our fingers got burned 

    A7/C#     Bb7                   Bb7/C Dm7                Dm7 
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down 
          Bb7                  Bb7/C  Dm7             Dm7/C 
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground 
        Gm7               Gm7/C#  Am7       Dm  Dm/C 
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend 
       F                            Bb             F/A  Gm7 
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end 

Em E/G#  Am 

verse 2 

Am                               Dm   C 
Every new version of the way of life 
           Bb                         C                 F  Em E/G# Am 
Leaves you reckless and searching for stars in the night 
Am                                        Dm   C 
But whose kid are you when they finally decide 
    Bb                     F/A             Gm7  C 
The lifestyle you led and the way that you died 


    A7/C#     Bb7                   Bb7/C Dm7                Dm7 
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down 
          Bb7                  Bb7/C  Dm7             Dm7/C 
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground 
        Gm7               Gm7/C#  Am7       Dm  Dm/C 
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend 
       F                            Bb             F/A  Gm7 
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end 

verse 3 

F                 Dm  F    Bb                       Bb7 
But they're oh so simple, they're still trying to tell 
     G/B                       C          F   Em E/G# 
The difference for you between heaven and hell 
Am                         Dm            Dm/C 
To glorify something, your legends are found 
G/B                           C           C/Bb   C/A  Em E/G#  Am 
But all they bought you was a hole in the ground 

verse 4 

Am                           Dm   C 
Years rolling by just like a dream (ooh) 
Bb                       C         F     Em E/G# Am 
I'm partly human and I'm partly machine 
                                               Dm   C 
They've lost you and fate put your name on a stone (ahh) 
   Bb                            F/A            Gm7  C 
Perhaps now my friend they might leave you alone (ahh) 

    A7/C#     Bb7                   Bb7/C Dm7                Dm7 
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down 
          Bb7                  Bb7/C  Dm7             Dm7/C 
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground 
        Gm7               Gm7/C#  Am7       Dm  Dm/C 
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend 
       F                            Bb             F/A  Gm7 
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end
