One of my favorite songs to play is Key to the Highway by Big Bill Broonzy. An eight-bar blues. A very comfortable progression. Bill Broonzy is certainly one of the greats of the Blues. I first heard Key to the Highway from Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, who were friends of Big Bill, and they always played the song when they performed. If you’ve never heard Bill Broonzy or Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, you should check them out. So, in the tradition of keeping on playing Key to the Highway, here it is again.ย
