It's long I ride for the little I gain.

[Verse 1]
     G    C            G                Em             C
Its rye grass in the winter time, and flowers in the spring,
      G            C       D         G
But Texas in the summer is my own suffering.
G      C        G               Em          C
I went up on Jackson hill at a diner I sat down,
        G               C               D             G
And I waved at every stranger, just to move the air around.
     G      C           G              Em                C
Hey when I left that Brooklyn girl, I never thought it through,
         G                     C            D                  G      
She had silk brocade in the bedroom, and a job that payed for two.
         G        C         G             Em              C
I think I'll get down that old guitar and see what I may find,
         G               C             D           G
made a dollar off some lawyer on the number seven line.

[Chorus]
            Em           D        G
Its long I ride for the little I gain.

[Verse 2]
       G         C          G                       Em             C
These New York Folks will treat you kind, If your wallets in your hand,
       G                     C               D                   G
But a six string on your shoulder, might as well be the devils brand.
           G      C        G                Em                  C
Well they put themselves above you, but for all that strut and brag,
      G                    C            D                  G
I'd trade every brig on wall street for one black mountain rag.

[Verse 3]
   G        C        G        Em           C              G               C     
I rode back to my boyhood, If I could only go, Theres a little girl that stole
                   D                  G
my heart and I'd think she'd like to know. 
          G       C        G                Em            C
Well the road it goes but one way, and the only goal in sight,
       G                         C             D                 G
Is to make a little more in the day time, then I drank down at night. 
            Em             D       G
Its long I ride, for the little I gain.

[Bridge]
      G                                                 Em
They say the ? girls are fair, and they all sing right on key,
                                              D              G
But I went down and I never found, one that sings as good as me.

[Verse 4]
      G           C        G                Em                C
They say thats theres a wondrous land for any good man that dies,
        G                 C          D               G
and if its got drinking women, well then I'll be surprised.

[Chorus] 
             Em             D        G
It's long I ride, for the little I gain,
             Em             D        G
It's long I ride, for the little I gain,
            Em    D      G
It's long I ri-i-ide.
