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...
