[Intro] 
D

[Verse 1]
D                                          G
Way back in my memory there's a scene that I 
  D         A                            D
recall of a little run-down cabin in the woods.
D                                G
My daddy never promised that our blue moon 
           D           A
would turn gold but he lay awake nights wishin'
        D
that it would.

[Verse 2]
D                                     G
When the world was on our radio, hard work was on 
    D
our minds.
   A                                  D
We lived our day-to-day in plain dirt fashion.
D                                      G
With old overalls and cotton balls all strapped across 
     D               A
your back, man, it's hard to make believe ain't nothing 
D
wrong.

[Verse 3]
    Bm                            G
But mama kept the Bible read, and daddy kept our family 
        D                                A
fed 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.
       Bm    A                 D
Now, I know, it's a long, hard road.

[Interlude] 
D G D A D 

[Verse 4]
D                            G               D
Sometimes, I remember when I stay up late at night,
         A                          D
when the sun-up came, we got up and went.
D                                    G
In the shadows of a working day, our moonlight hours 
D              A                          D
spent, singin' songs along with grandma's radio.

[Verse 5]
D                                           G
Now, I'm beatin' down an old blacktop road, sleepin' 
     D     A                            D
in a sack, livin' in my memories all in vain.
D                                              G
Cause those city lights ain't all that bright, compared 
             D            A
to what it's like, to see lightning bugs go dancin' in 
    D
the rain.

[Verse 6]
Bm                               G
Mama played the guitar then, and daddy made the saw blade 
         D                                    A
bend 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 it's a long, hard road.

[Outro]
       Bm    A                 D    
Yes, I know, it's a long, hard road..
G D A D G D A D
