Long Hard Road
By The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

D                               G            D
Way back in my memory there's a scene that I recall
     A                            D
Of a little run-down cabin in the woods
         D                           G                    D
Where my dad never promised that our blue moon would turn gold
       A                                 D
But he laid awake nights wishin' that it would

When the world was on our radio hard work was on our minds
We lived our day-to-day in plain dirt fashion
With ol' overalls and cotton balls all strapped across your back
Man, it's hard to make believe there ain't nothing wrong

    Bm                            G
But momma kept the Bible read and daddy kept our family fed
    D                                A
And somewhere in between I must have grown
      Bm                            G
Cause someday I was dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
         D                                A
Takes me down the road to where I want to go
      Bm    A                D
Now I know, it's a long hard road

Sometimes I remember when I stayed up late at night
When the sun-up came, we got up and went
In the shadows of a working' day our moonlight hours spent
Singin' songs along with Gramma's radio
Now I'm beatin' down a ol' blacktop road sleepin' in a sack
Livin' in my memories all in vain
Cause those city lights ain't all that bright compared to what its like
To see lightning Bugs go dancin' in the rain

Second Chorus:
Momma played the guitar then and
Daddy made the saw blade bend
And the rain played the tin roof like
a drum.
And I just kept on dreamin' that a
Song that I was singin'
Takes me down the road to where I want
to go.
Now I'm gone, it's a long hard road
