Hillbilly Highway
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs
Written by Jimbeau Hinson and Steve Earle

G C G
My granddaddy was a miner but he finally saw the light

He didn't have much just a beat up truck
C G
And a dream about a better life

Grandma cried when she waved goodbye
C G
I never heard such a lonesome sound
C G
Pretty soon the dirt road turned into blacktop Detroit City bound

C G C G C G C G
Down that h-illbilly highway on that h-illbilly highway
C G C G
That old h-illbilly highway goes on and on

C G
Now he worked and saved his money so that one day he might send
C G
My daddy off to college to use his brains and not his hands

Grandma cried when he said goodbye
C G
I never heard such a lonesome sound
C G
But daddy had himself a good job in Houston one more rolling down

Repeat #2 That old hillbilly...

C G
Now granddaddy's rolled over in his grave the day that I quit school
C G
I just sat around the house playin' my guitar daddy said I was a fool
C G
My mama cried when I said goodbye I never heard such a lonesome sound

Now I'm standin' on this highway and if you're goin' my way
C G
You know where I'm bound

Repeat #2 x2 That old hillbilly...
