Steve Earle
Hillbilly Highway

My Grand Daddy 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
Grand Mama waved goodbye you never heard such a lonesome sound
Pretty soon the dirt road turned into blacktop
Detroit City bound

[Chorus]
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 old man off to college
To use his brains and not his hands
Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye
You never heard such a lonesome sound
But Daddy had himself a good job in Houston; one more rolling down

[Repeat Chorus]

On and on and on.... here we go

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
Ya never heard such a lonesome sound
Now I'm standin' on this highway, and if you're goin' my way
You know where I'm bound

[Repeat Chorus]

Mmmmm yeah, that's the road I'm on

Hiiiiiiillllll billy highway
Hiiiiiiillllll billy highway


Mirror lyrics:

Hiiiiiiillllll billy highway
Hiiiiiiillllll billy highway

Mmmmm yeah, that's the road I'm on

[Repeat Chorus]

You know where I'm bound
Now I'm standin' on this highway, and if you're goin' my way
Ya never heard such a lonesome sound
My Mama cried when I said goodbye
I just sat around the house playin' my guitar, Daddy said I was a fool
Now Grandaddy rolled over in his grave the day that I quit school

On and on and on.... here we go

[Repeat Chorus]

But Daddy had himself a good job in Houston; one more rolling down
You never heard such a lonesome sound
Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye
To use his brains and not his hands
My old man off to college
Now he worked and saved his money so that one day he might send

Goes on and on
That old hillbilly highway
On that hillbilly highway
Down that hillbilly highway
[Chorus]

Detroit City bound
Pretty soon the dirt road turned into blacktop
Grand Mama waved goodbye you never heard such a lonesome sound
And a dream about a better life
He didn't have much, just a beat up truck
My Grand Daddy was a miner, but he finally saw the light

happy ever afternoon

life is so peculiar

broken hearted
