Long Hard Road, The Sharecropper's Dream
----------------------------------------
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
                  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
               G        D
When the world was on our radio hard work was on our minds
   A           D
We lived our day-to-day in plain dirt fashion
               G        D
With ol' overalls and cotton balls all strapped across your back
      A              D
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
   Bn A     D
Now I know, it's a long hard road
            G     D
Sometimes I remember when I stayed up late at night
      A           D
When the sun-up came, we got up and went
                  G     D
In the shadows of a working' day our moonlight hours spent
      A        D
Singin' songs along with Gramma's radio
                  G     D
Now I'm beatin' down a ol' blacktop road sleepin' in a sack
  A            D
Livin' in my memories all in vain
                  G        D
Cause those city lights ain't all that bright compared to what its like
      A           D
To see Lightning Bugs go dancin' in the rain
   Bm             G
Momma played the guitar then and daddy made the saw blade bend
      D           A
And raindrops played the tin roof like a drum
   Bm          G
But I just kept on dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
      D              A
Takes me down the road to where my name is known
   Bm    A     D
Now I'm gone, and its a long hard road
   Bm A     D
Yes, I know,  Its a long hard road.

Where my daddy never promised that our blue moon would turn gold

D G
But he lay awake nights wishing that it would
C G
When the world was on our radio hard work was on our minds
D G
We lived our day to day in plain dirt fashion
C G
With old overalls and cotton balls all strapped across your back
D G
Man it’s hard to make believe there ain’t nothing wrong

Singing songs along with grandmas radio

Now I’m beating down an old black-top road sleeping in a sack

Living in those memories all in vain

Cause those city lights ain’t all that bright compared to what
G
it’s like
D G
To see lightning bugs go dancing in the rain

CHORUS 2:

Em C
Momma played the guitar then and daddy made the saw-blade bend

And raindrops played the tin roof like a drum
Em C
But I just kept on dreaming that a song that I was singing

Takes me down the road to where my name is known
Em D G
Now I’m gone, and it’s a long hard road
