There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
There's a riff he does in this song before he goes back to the F#m, so for all intensive 
purposes, this will be called riff. 

     A                      F#m


F#m                     D        A Riff
Riding out past all the places
F#m                   D         A [Riff]     
That I've a reason to go
F#m                D        A [Riff]
Kentucky hills and fences
F#m                     D        A [Riff]
Fields cleared of their stones
F#m                      D        A [Riff]
Gonna find me a crossroad
F#m                     D        A [Riff]
Ask a stranger where to go
F#m                            D        A [Riff]
Gotta find a clear view of the sky
F#m               D        A [Riff]
Out past the open road


F#m                     D        A [Riff]
'Bout half way to Jellico
F#m                         D        A [Riff]
All the lines wore off the road
F#m                    D        A [Riff]
Some old man patching holes with his bare hands
F#m                          D        A [Riff]
Working as hard as I've ever seen
F#m                     D          A [Riff]
He had no taste for the touch screens
F#m                                  D        A [Riff]
'Cause they ain't nothing like the real thing
F#m                      D        A [Riff]
He used those simple machines
F#m                     D
He knew how to make the hammer ring


He said, "I want it as bad as you do.
D                       A            G        D
I just ain't willing to take it from somebody else...
             Bm      C#m     D
'Cause on my way to happiness
I wound up paving the road."


F#m                  D       A [Riff]
When I came back home,
F#m                      D       A [Riff]
My family was waiting for me.
F#m                    D       A [Riff]
I looked into my son's eyes,
F#m                         D       A [Riff]
and they were wild as the sea.
F#m                             D       A [Riff]
Oh, he asked me a simple question...
F#m                D       A [Riff]
why do I have to leave.
F#m                        D       A [Riff]
Oh, son because it's a chance to make a living...
F#m                             D        
that don't make other folks bleed.


Yeah...you know I want it as bad as you do.
D                       A            G        D
I just ain't willing to take it from somebody else.
             Bm       C#m     D
'Cause on my way to happiness,

I met a poor man paving the road
