Me and This Road  Chris Knight

By Chris Knight
Written by Chris Knight
CD The Jealous Kind
Capo 1
An old [G]county road runs [D/F#]by my house and [Em]ends on the river [Cadd9]bank
In '[G]73 they [D/F#]shut the ferry [Cadd9]down
[G]Back up the road there's a [D/F#]church and a store with a [Em]bench full of lying old [Cadd9]men
In the [G]middle of a wide [D/F#]spot they call a [Cadd9]town
I'm just a young man living to make me old plowing these fields by the river road
Where hopes dreams and my granddaddy lived and died
They go as far as my eyes can see but they ain't far enough for me
When I drive to the river and I look at the other side
Me and this [G]road[Cadd9], we ain't been [G]nowhere[Cadd9]
As far as I [G]know[Cadd9] this whole [D]world's just a county fair
But [Cadd9]somewhere there's a [D]bridge that'll [Em]take us out of [Cadd9]here
[G]Free as a river [D/F#]flows me and this [Cadd9]road
We'll find a long stretch of blacktop where there ain't no dead-end signs
And leave these fences fields and farms behind
There's a bigger town on a bigger road fame and fortune I've been told
And across that river we'll search 'til i find mine
Well I shook my father's hand now I'm off to find the promised land
And I hope I bring him back a little gold
You know his dream was the same as mine but it got lost somewhere in time
In a dusty field along that river road
