Down the Road by the Way
written by Billy Joe Shaver
Album: "The Real Deal"
2/24/06


INTRO: G

          C                 D               G               Cadd9
Well it's down the road and up the hill and just around the bend
                              G           D
Pick 'em and put 'em down and pick 'em up again
       C             D                  G          Cadd9
And it sets me into wonderin' what it's really all about
                                      G          D        G
Fightin' for the things we know we'll always be without
 
                     C
Down the road by the way
                          G
Where the laughin' waters play
                         D
'Cross the ribbon-wavin' sand
                      G
We go walkin' hand in hand

                        C
Nothin' old and nothin' new
                         G
Nothin' special there to do
                        D
In those good old yesterdays
                     G
Down the road by the way

          C                 D            G               Cadd9
Well it's light and lovely Brenda comin' cool across the waves
                                 G            D
Floatin' over rows she helped me hoe in yesterdays
         C                D                G                  Cadd9
And it's me whose thirsty now for all that sweet milk gone to waste
                            G               D
Somewhere on the road of no returnin' yesterdays

           C                D               G              Cadd9
Well it's down the road and up the hill and just about the bend
                               G           D
Pick 'em and put 'em down and pick 'em up again
       C             D                  G          Cadd9
And it sets me into wonderin' what it's really all about
                                      G            D
Fightin' for the things we know we'll always be without
