Long Hard Road

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

----------------------------------------


 DGD
Way back in my memory there's a scene that I recall
 AD
Of a little run-down cabin in the woods
 GD
Where my dad never promised that our blue moon would turn gold
 AD
But he laid awake nights wishin' that it would
 GD
When the world was on our radio hard work was on our minds
 AD
We lived our day-to-day in plain dirt fashion
 GD
With ol' overalls and cotton balls all strapped across your back
 AD
Man, it's hard to make believe there ain't nothing wrong
 BmG
But momma kept the Bible read and daddy kept our family fed
 DA
And somewhere in between I must have grown
 BmG
Cause someday I was dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
 DA
Takes me down the road to where I want to go
 BnAD
Now I know, it's a long hard road
 GD
Sometimes I remember when I stayed up late at night
 AD
When the sun-up came, we got up and went
 GD
In the shadows of a working' day our moonlight hours spent
 AD
Singin' songs along with Gramma's radio
 GD
Now I'm beatin' down a ol' blacktop road sleepin' in a sack
 AD
Livin' in my memories all in vain
 GD
Cause those city lights ain't all that bright compared to what its like
 AD
To see Lightning Bugs go dancin' in the rain
 BmG
Momma played the guitar then and daddy made the saw blade bend
 DA
And raindrops played the tin roof like a drum
 BmG
But I just kept on dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
 DA
Takes me down the road to where my name is known
 BmAD
Now I'm gone, and its a long hard road
 BmAD
Yes, I know,  Its a long hard road.
