The Road  Waylon Jennings

Here is a Waylon Jennings song "The Road" off of the newly re-released album
"Love Of The Common People."
The Road
[G]Back home, The [C]familys eating [G]dinner.
Theres a fire, in the [C]fireside warm and [G]bright
But I won't be there today, cause I [Am]got a debt to [C]pay
And they [Am]dont let black sheep [D]stray from the [Em]road
No they [Am]dont let black sheep [D]stray from the [G]road
[G]My throat is [C]crying out for [G]water
Lord that [C]wind is blowing [G]cold
That guard is watching me, like a [Am]hawk up in a [C]tree
And I'm [Am]longing to be [D]free, from the [Em]road
Yes I'm [Am]longing to be [D]free, from the r[G]oad
[G]Every bone, [C]inside my body's [G]aching
And that guard dont [C]care if I live or [G]die
He told me yesterday, son dont [Am]try to get [C]away,
Or I'll [Am]lay you down to [D]stay, by the [Em]road
Yes I'll [Am]lay you down to [D]stay, by the [G]road.
