A Tomebstone Every Mile Dick Curless
[G7] All you [C] big and burly men who roll the trucks along
Better listen, you'll be thankful, when you [G7] hear my song
You have [C] really got made, if you're [F] haulin' goods
[C] Any place on earth, but those [G7] Haynesville [C] Woods.
[C] It's a stretch of road, up [F] north in Maine
That's [C] never ever, ever seen a [G7] smile
If they [C] buried all the trucker's [F] lost in them woods
There'd be a [C] tombstone [G7] ev'ry [C] mile
Count 'em [F] off, there'd be a [C] tomb-stone [G7] ev'ry [C] mile.[G7]
[G7] When you're [C] loaded with potatoes and you're headed down
You gotta drive the Woods to get to [G7] Boston town
When it's [C] winter up in Maine, better [F] check it over twice
That [C] Haynesville Road is just a [G7] ribbon of [C] ice.
[G7] When you're [C] talkin' to a trucker that's been haulin' goods
Down the stretch of road in Maine, they call the [G7] Haynesville Woods
He'll [C] tell you that dyin' and [F] goin' down below
Won't be [C] half as bad as drivin' on that [G7] road of ice and [C] snow.
