Hillbilly Highway-crd

Ricky Skaggs

 A
 My grandaddy was a miner
But he finally saw the light
He didn't have much
Just a beat-up truck and a dream about a better life
Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye
You never heard such a lonesome sound
Pretty soon the dirt road turned into blacktop, Detroit City bound
 A
 Down that hillbilly highway
On Ttat hillbilly highway
 D7
That old   Hillbilly highway
 A
Goes on and on
 A
 Now he worked and saved his money so that one day he might send
My daddy off to college
To use his brains and not his hands
Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye
Never heard such a lonesome sound
But daddy had himself a good job in Houston
One more rollin' down
 A
 Down that old hillbilly highway
That old hillbilly highway
 D7
That old Hillbilly highway
 A
Goes on and on
SOLO
 A
 Now grandaddy rolled over in his grave the day that I quit school
I just sat around the house playin' my guitar,
Daddy said I was a fool
My mama cried when I said goodbye,
I never heard such a lonesome sound
Now I'm standin' on this highway and if you're going my way
You know where I'm bound
Down that old hillbilly highway
That old hillbilly highway
 D7
That old Hillbilly highway
 A
Goes on and on
