Down The Road

Song Author Mac McAnally Submitted by: Anonymous
[E]When I was a [A]boy  

[E]Four houses [B]down from [E]me was a [A]family with an [E]only [B]child
[E]She was the [A]only [E]girl in [A]this whole world that could [E]make me [B]smile [A]    
Down the [B]road, [A] I made up rea[B]sons to [E]go [A] down the [B]road [E]    

[E]Somewhere in[B]side of [E]me, there was [A]something she took a [E]liking [B]to  
[E]And I asked her to [A]marry [E]me and [A]she said she really [E]wanted [B]to [A]    
Down the [B]road, [A] and see what l[B]ife's gonna [E]hold, [A] down the [B]road [E]    [B]    

[C#m]Her mama wants to k[G#m7]now am I washed in the [A]blood or just in the [E]wa  [B]ter  
[C#m]Her daddy wants to k[G#m7]now if I make en[A]ough to take his [E]daugh[B]ter [A]    
Down the [B]road, [A] before he can [B]let her [E]go [A] down the [B]road [E]    

[E]    [A]    [B]    [A]    [B]    [E]    [A]    [B]    [E]    
[E]Now down the [B]street from [E]here, there's an [A/B]engineer with an [E]only [B]son  
[E]And our baby [A/B]girl     [E]says she be[A/B]lieves that he is the [E]only [B]one, [A] down the [B]road

[C#m]Her mama wants to k[G#m7]now is he washed in the [A]blood or just in the [E]wa  [B]ter  
[C#m]And I want to k[G#m7]now that he makes en[A]ough to take my [E]daugh[B]ter [A]    
Down the [B]road, [A] when it comes [B]time to [E]go [A] down the [B]road [E]    [A]    
Down the [B]road, [A] you know I want to [B]help her [E]go [A] down the [B]road [E]    

When I was a boy

Four houses down from me was a family with an only child
She was the only girl in this whole world that could make me smile
Down the road, I made up reasons to go down the road

Somewhere inside of me, there was something she took a liking to
And I asked her to marry me and she said she really wanted to
Down the road, and see what life's gonna hold, down the road

Her mama wants to know am I washed in the blood or just in the water
Her daddy wants to know if I make enough to take his daughter
Down the road, before he can let her go down the road


Now down the street from here, there's an engineer with an only son
And our baby girl says she believes that he is the only one, down the road

Her mama wants to know is he washed in the blood or just in the water
And I want to know that he makes enough to take my daughter
Down the road, when it comes time to go down the road
Down the road, you know I want to help her go down the road
