8-bar blues in A

In A, another favorite key for this progression, it will be:

A E7 D(7) D(7)
A E7 A E7

Key to The Highway

The next song, Key to The Highway is probably written by Big Bill Broonzy, but is recorded by numerous other musicians. It is the same theme as in E, and it is very much the same "chords" played in different positions.


I've got the key to the highway, billed and bound to go.
I'm gonna leave here running, walking is far too slow.

I'm goin' back to the border, where I'm better known.
Though you haven't done nothin', drove a good man away from home.

Oh gimme one more kiss, Mama, just before I go.
'Cause when I leave this time, I won't be back no more.

8-Bar Blues

Written by Dave Rubin

Although the term 12-bar is usually the first form one thinks of when hearing the word blues, a surprising number of songs make use of another popular form: the 8-bar. This book/CD pack is solely devoted to providing you with all the technical tools necessary for playing 8-bar blues with authority. Includes: a CD with 44 full-band tracks; a history of the 8-bar blues form; instruction on boogie, shuffle, and jazz-blues progressions, including minor keys; rhythm patterns and solos; and much more.
