This Old Road
By The Cruzaros



                      G               C         G
It rains a lot around here, drives me crazy sometimes
          D                                                G
But I was born here, and I got roots, all the way down the line
                    G                  C      G 
I guess we could do better, yeah if we moved away
            D                                              G
But thereís things here that money canít buy, thatís why I stay


Chorus 1:
            G              C        G
On this old road it always takes me home
            G                                            D
Well, I got credit at the general store and a party line phone
          G                C   G
All of my friends are like family
              D                            G 
Well this old road has always been good to me


My grandfolks were together about 65 years
Crossed the ocean a long time to start a new life here
She passed away on a Sunday, he said thereís nothing left for me
Well 3 days later he joined her forever and thatís the way it should be

Chorus 2:
We took him down the old road and we took him 
Past the general store and the corner payphone
All of his friends, they lined up on the side
While the fifers played farewell, we all said good bye

Solo

Bridge:
D        C                    D
One time daddy once towed his truck up the hill and I was in it
D                       C               D 	    
The chain broke, I went over the edge, man that was a long minute


We hit a tree and I was all right
Oh my momma was mad
Mustíve been a week or two 
Before she talked to my Dad

Chorus 3:
Memories of this old road they always take me home
Well, I got credit at the general store and a party line phone
All of my friends are like family
Well this old road always been good to me
