Highway To Hell - AC/DC - ukulele chords

Started jamming this with the band the other night, so couldn't resist getting up here - ukulele chords for Highway To Hell by AC/DC.

Now, the chords I've put with the lyrics below are the general chords, but this song is all about the riff. It loops through the verses but takes a bit of work.

To play the riff I've have bowed to pressure and can give you this strumming pattern (not a fan of strum patterns, but with this song it's kind of essential)

PATTERN (Chord letters are the chords, / indicates a repeat strum, and M a muted strum)

A/ /   (M / ), D / G (M / ) , D / G, DGDA / , and repeat it. And here is a soundcloud!

The end line of the verse ends on the E7 rather than the two A chords. So we have

A / / (M /), D / G (M /), D /G, DGDE7

The chorus is just a standard rock turnaround with the same chords, so less of a riff. This isn't a perfect interpretation, I'm not Malcolm Young, but this should get you going!

Living easy, living free
Season ticket on a one-way ride
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don't need reason, don't need rhyme
Ain't nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there too

I'm on the [A]highway to [D] hell [G] [D]
[A] Highway to [D] hell [G] [D]
[A] I'm on a highway to [D] hell [G] [D]
[A] Highway to hell [D].....

No stop signs, speed limit
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Like a wheel, gonna spin it
Nobody's gonna mess me round
Hey Satan, payed my dues
Playing in a rocking band
Hey Momma, look at me
I'm on my way to the promised land

I'm on the [A]highway to [D] hell [G] [D]
[A] Highway to [D] hell [G] [D]
[A] I'm on a highway to [D] hell [G] [D]
[A] Highway to hell [D].....

End with lead licks and fade out


  1. Thanks so much for this! Now I just need to learn the solo :-)
