There's a road in Oklahoma
F C G
Straighter than a preacher longer than a memory
And it goes forever onward
F C G
It's been a good teacher for a lot of country boys like me
I push that load from here to someday
I push it as long as I'm alive and I don't know how long I'll last
Oh it's just a road it ain't no highway
Goin' by the double-five, know I'm goin' way too fast
D C G
I been down this road just searchin for the end
D C G D
And it don't go nowhere it just brings you back again
Leaves ya lonely and cold standin' on the shoulder
F C G
But you've come too far to go back home so you're walkin' on the nowhere road
Some folks say if you keep rollin'
And you keep it in the yellow line it'll take you to the big highway
But there's a toll to pay so if you're goin'
Keeper at the gates is blind so you better be prepared to pay

|Something doesn't look quite right - I will take a listen to the |
Steve Earle version because that C doesn't seem right - I think it
could be an F instead then to C instead of C/B.
