OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Picking up the pieces of my sweet shattered dreams
I wonder how the old folks are tonight

Walk all around your corner, see saw around your girl
Allemande left and weave the ring
Carefree highway, takes me back to my old friends
Swing your girl and promenade
Carefree highway, makes me slip away
Slip away on you


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Walk right in and square thru 4
Right & left thru my friend
Veer left, circulate, half tag
Follow your neighbor and spread
Swing your corner and promenade
Carefree highway, lets me slip away
Slip away on you


TAG

It makes me slip away on you

Carefree Highway
 
 

Pickin' up the pieces of my sweet shattered dream
I wonder how the old folks are tonight
Her name was Ann and I'll be damned if I recall her face
She left me not knowin' what to do

Carefree highway, let me slip away on you
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The mornin' after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away
Slip away on you

Turnin' back the pages to the times I love best
I wonder if she'll ever do the same
Now the thing that I call livin' is just bein' satisfied
With knowin' I got no one left to blame

Carefree highway, got ta see you my old flame
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The mornin' after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away
Slip away on you

Searchin' through the fragments of my dream-shattered sleep
I wonder if the years have closed her mind
I guess it must be wanderlust or tryin' to get free
From the good old faithful feelin' we once knew

Carefree highway, let me slip away on you
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The mornin' after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away
Slip away on you
Let me slip away on you

Carefree highway, got ta see you my old flame
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The mornin' after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away
Slip away on you

Lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot.
Recorded by Gordon Lightfoot.
