Hitchhiker Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
G C G I don't know why it is every time I take a trip D7 G It's always rainin' somewhere down the line C G This particular night it was in Prestonsburg Kentucky C D7 G I stopped to give a country boy a ride
C G I saw him runnin' toward the car he carried an old suitcase D7 G A cigarette was dangling from his lips C G He threw the suitcase in the back and as he got inside C D7 G He said I'm sorry but I'm awful wet
C G I said where are you headed kid and he said to Louisville D7 G Said he had an uncle there who ran a store C G Said his daddy died three weeks ago and they didn't own the place C D7 G And they said he couldn't live there anymore
C G He said his education was that he could read and write D7 G He quit school the time his dad got hurt C G Ain't much goes on in Prestonsburg when he was seventeen C D7 G And he had to go someplace to find some work
C G He talked about the girl whose father had a lotta money D7 G He said he'd send and get her if he could C G His daddy taught him all there was about tobacco farmin' C D7 G And he said he played the banjo pretty good
C G We stopped to get a sandwich and the waitress brought the menu D7 G And I noticed that he read the prices first C G He ordered him a hotdog with a lot of table ketchup C D7 G And water seemed to satisfy his thirst C G Well it took a while but I insisted that I pay the ticket D7 G Excused myself and went out to the car C G He came out and got in the car and he handed me a quarter C D7 G He said you left this layin' on the bar
C G I dropped him off in Lexington and drove down to Bowling Green D7 G And I thought boy you'll never make without help C G And then I got to thinkin' about the days when I was younger C D7 G And I started out the same darn way myself
C G I don't know why it is every time I take a trip D7 G It's always rainin' somewhere down the line
