Riding The Danville Pike
(Wayne Taylor/Forty WAT Music, BMI)

Pretty easy stuff. Here we go!

Intro: A | D | A | D | A | E | A

A
Ridin' through the night, on the Danville pike,
D                                 A
Gotta be there by the break of daylight.
                           D
Twenty five miles is all I like,
    A          E        A
I'm ridin' the Danville pike.

Dobro solo: A | D | A | D | A | E | A
 
A
He was the fastest horse anyone had seen,
   D                                 A
he was a Sorrel pony he was tall and lean.
                                             D
He'd meet every challenge if they think they must,
     A                              E        A
he'd leave 'em breathin' heavy in a cloud of dust.


It was just about dark on a Friday night,
      D                                 A
not a cloud in the sky and the moon was bright.
                                                  D
We were bound to do somethin' that had never been done,
        A                             E         A
Make it all the way to Danville on an overnight run.

Banjo solo: A | D | A | D | A | E | A
Mando solo: A | D | A | D | A | E | A

A
Big Jim Grayson was a man of means,
   D                                A
he had more money than a poor boy's dreams.
                                                     D
He said here's five hundred dollars cause I know I'm right,
       A                          E       A
you'll never make Danville by the mornin' light.


Well the watch from my pocket say's it's half past four.
D                                A
Give up the rein and he begs for more.
                                       D
With a whole lot of heart and a little luck,
         A                               E         A
We'll be drinking from the Dan' when the sun comes up.

Intro repeat: A | D | A | D | A | E | A

A
Ridin' through the night, on the Danville pike,
D                                 A
Gotta be there by the break of daylight.
                           D
Twenty five miles is all I like,
    A          E        A
I'm ridin' the Danville pike.

Outro: A | D | A | E | A
