Hillbilly Highway2-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,
Tturned into blacktop, Detroit City bound,
(chorus)
 A
 Down that hillbilly highway,
On that hillbilly highway,
 D7
That old Hillbilly highway,
 A
Goes on and on,
(verse 2)
 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,
(chorus)
 A
 Down that old hillbilly highway
That old hillbilly highway
 D7
That old Hillbilly highway
 A
Goes on and on
(verse 3)
 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
Aand if you're going my way,
You know where I'm bound,
(chorus)
 A
 Down that old hillbilly highway,
That old hillbilly highway,
 D7
That old Hillbilly highway,
 A
Goes on and on,
