Long Hard Road  Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

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



Way[D] back in my [G]memory[D] there's a scene that I recall
Of [A]a little run[D]-down cabin in the woods
Where my dad never[G] promised[D] that our blue moon would turn gold
But[A] he laid awake [D]nights wishin' that it would
When the world [G]was on ou[D]r radio hard work was on our minds
We [A]lived our da[D]y-to-day in plain dirt fashion
With ol' overal[G]ls and co[D]tton balls all strapped across your back
Man, i[A]t's hard to mak[D]e believe there ain't nothing wrong
But[Bm] momma kept the[G] Bible read and daddy kept our family fed
And[D] somewhere in b[A]etween I must have grown
Cau[Bm]se someday I wa[G]s dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
Takes [D]me down the [A]road to where I want to go
Now[Bn] I [A]know, [D]it's a long hard road
Sometimes I [G]rememb[D]er when I stayed up late at night
When t[A]he sun-up ca[D]me, we got up and went
In the shadows of [G]a work[D]ing' day our moonlight hours spent
Singin[A]' songs a[D]long with Gramma's radio
Now I'm beatin' do[G]wn a o[D]l' blacktop road sleepin' in a sack
Li[A]vin' in my me[D]mories all in vain
Cause those city l[G]ights ain[D]'t all that bright compared to what its like
To see[A] Lightning B[D]ugs go dancin' in the rain
Mom[Bm]ma played the g[G]uitar then and daddy made the saw blade bend
And ra[D]indrops play[A]ed the tin roof like a drum
But[Bm] I just kept[G] on dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
Takes [D]me down the roa[A]d to where my name is known
Now[Bm] I'm g[A]one, a[D]nd its a long hard road
Yes[Bm], I[A] know,[D]  Its a long hard road.
