Son Of Hickory Hollers Tramp

Kenny Rogers

 DGD
The / corn was dry, the / weeds were high when / Daddy took to / drinkin'                    
 DGA7
When / him and Lucy / Walker, they took / up and run a - / way.                     
 DGD
 Mama cried a / tear and then she / promised fourteen / children,              
 GA7D
"I / swear you'll never / see a hungry / day."       

Chorus:

 DGD
Oh, the / path was deep and / wide, from footsteps / leading to our / cabin,                     
 GA7D
A - / bove the door there / burned a scarlet / lamp, and     
 DGD
 Late at night, a / hand would knock and / there would stand a / stranger,                 
 GA7D
 I'm the son of / Hick'ry Holler's / tramp.  

 DGD
 Mama sacri - / ficed her pride, and / neighbors started / talkin',             
 DGA7
But / I was much too / young to under - / stand the things they / said,                    
 DGD
The / things that mattered / most of all was / Mama's chicken / dumplin's, and            
 GA7D
A / goodnight kiss be- / fore we went to / bed.          

 DGD
When / Daddy left, and / destitution / came upon our / fam'ly,               
 DGA7
 Not one neighbor / volunteered to / give a helpin' / hand,            
 DGD
So / let 'em gossip / all they want; she / loved us and she / raised us.            
 GA7D
The / proof is standing / here, a full grown / man.         

 DGD
Last / summer Mama / passed away and / left the ones who / loved her,                   
 DGA7
 Each and ev'ry / one is more than / grateful for his / birth,            
 DGG
Each / Sunday she receives a / fresh bou - / quet of fourteen / roses, and              
 GA7D
A / card that says, " To the / greatest Mom on / earth."
