Long Hard Road, The Sharecropper's Dream
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

   C           F     C
Way back in my memory there's a scene that I recall
   G           C
Of a little run-down cabin in the woods
                  F        C
Where my dad never promised that our blue moon would turn gold
   G              C
But he laid awake nights wishin' that it would
               F        C
When the world was on our radio hard work was on our minds
   G           C
We lived our day-to-day in plain dirt fashion
               F        C
With ol' overalls and cotton balls all strapped across your back
      G              C
Man, it's hard to make believe there ain't nothing wrong
   Am             F
But momma kept the Bible read and daddy kept our family fed
   C              G
And somewhere in between I must have grown
   Am             F
Cause someday I was dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
      C           G
Takes me down the road to where I want to go
   Bn G     C
Now I know, it's a long hard road
            F     C
Sometimes I remember when I stayed up late at night
      G           C
When the sun-up came, we got up and went
                  F     C
In the shadows of a working' day our moonlight hours spent
      G        C
Singin' songs along with Gramma's radio
                  F     C
Now I'm beatin' down a ol' blacktop road sleepin' in a sack
  G            C
Livin' in my memories all in vain
                  F        C
Cause those city lights ain't all that bright compared to what its like
      G           C
To see Lightning Bugs go dancin' in the rain
   Am             F
Momma played the guitar then and daddy made the saw blade bend
      C           G
And raindrops played the tin roof like a drum
   Am          F
But I just kept on dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
      C              G
Takes me down the road to where my name is known
   Am    G     C
Now I'm gone, and its a long hard road
   Am G     C
Yes, I know,  Its a long hard road.
