Ricky Skaggs
Hillbilly Highway

(Jimbeau Hinson - Steve Earle)

My grandaddy was a miner
But he finally saw the light
He didn't have much just a beat-up truck
And a dream about a better life.

Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye
You never heard such a lonesome sound
Pretty soon the dirt road turned
Into blacktop, Detroit City bound.

Down that hillbilly highway
On That hillbilly highway
That old Hillbilly highway
Goes on and on.

Now he worked and saved his money
So that one day he might send
My daddy off to college
To use his brains and not his hands.

Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye
Never heard such a lonesome sound.
But daddy had himself a good job in Houston
One more rollin' down.

Down that old hillbilly highway
That old hillbilly highway
That old Hillbilly highway
Goes on and on.

--- Instrumental ---

Now grandaddy rolled over in his grave
The day that I quit school
I just sat around the house playin' my guitar,
Daddy said I was a fool.

My mama cried when I said goodbye,
I never heard such a lonesome sound.
Now I'm standin' on this highway
And if you're going my way
You know where I'm bound.

Down that old hillbilly highway
That old hillbilly highway
That old Hillbilly highway
Goes on and on...

--- Instrumental ---

Hillbilly highway, hillbilly highway
Hillbilly highway...


Mirror lyrics:

Hillbilly highway...
Hillbilly highway, hillbilly highway

--- Instrumental ---

Goes on and on...
That old Hillbilly highway
That old hillbilly highway
Down that old hillbilly highway

You know where I'm bound.
And if you're going my way
Now I'm standin' on this highway
I never heard such a lonesome sound.
My mama cried when I said goodbye,

Daddy said I was a fool.
I just sat around the house playin' my guitar,
The day that I quit school
Now grandaddy rolled over in his grave

--- Instrumental ---

Goes on and on.
That old Hillbilly highway
That old hillbilly highway
Down that old hillbilly highway

One more rollin' down.
But daddy had himself a good job in Houston
Never heard such a lonesome sound.
Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye

To use his brains and not his hands.
My daddy off to college
So that one day he might send
Now he worked and saved his money

Goes on and on.
That old Hillbilly highway
On That hillbilly highway
Down that hillbilly highway

Into blacktop, Detroit City bound.
Pretty soon the dirt road turned
You never heard such a lonesome sound
Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye

And a dream about a better life.
He didn't have much just a beat-up truck
But he finally saw the light
My grandaddy was a miner

(Jimbeau Hinson - Steve Earle)

another yesterday

on the tray (seven years)

forevermore

who's kissing you tonight

too many dirty dishes

maldito rocanrol

grace and gratitude

lover's lie

romania nico & vlad pe o margine de lume

love's looking for you

your name is holy

four words from a heartbreak

i'll be home for christmas

i can't stop the rain

vicky is da best

the simple truth (a child is born)

don't wanna think

clăƒâ˘vame tu amor

like spinning plates

preciosa
