Shamelessly take from Guitar World Magazine February 1991.

Well, I finally finished it! This is an incredible song with
one of the best solo's ever written by Ritchie Blackmore. I have
tried to include as much of the original information as I could
while keeping to the ASCI text format. I tried to match up the
lyrics with the notes thus keeping the timing correct. As always,
listen to the recording to get the timing.
I would like to have the following tabs: "Echoes" by Pink
Floyd (the first half of the song), "Astronomy Domine" by Pink
Floyd (preferably the version on Ummagumma), and the rythem's to
Blue Oyster Cult songs.

Tunning: Nashville (E A D G B E)
Band: Deep Purple
Song: Highway Star
Album: Machine Head
Tabbed By: Jack

This is one of my all time favorites from Deep Purple
I almost certain this is 100% correct
