Long Long Texas Road

Song Author Dennis Linde Performer: Roy Drusky Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I've been up and [F]I've been down
I've [C]worked the fields [F]I've plowed the ground
[C]I've taken strain and [F]pressure
Till I thought I might [G7]explode

[C]Now I yearn for [F]childhood days
Of [C]model planes and [F]lemonade
[C]When the day stretched out before me
Like a [G7]long long Texas [C]road

Yes a [F]long long Texas road bout a [C]million miles or [Am]so   
When [F]you're just a child [G7]there ain't no time but [C]now  
Must have [F]left that long old road [C]seven hundred years [Am]ago   
And I'd [F]find it once [G7]again if I knew [C]how  

I've worked in city [F]factories
Their [C]plastic dirt still [F]clings to me
[C]Monotony near killed me [F]Lord
It was a heavy [G7]load   

[C]Now I dream of [F]comic books
And [C]horny toads and [F]fishing hooks
[C]When the day stretched out before me
Like a [G7]long long Texas [C]road

I've worked in city [F]factories
Their [C]plastic dirt still [F]clings to me
[C]Monotony near killed me [F]Lord
It was a heavy [G7]load   

So I watch the [F]children play
And [C]dream my dreams of [F]yesterday
[C]Don't tell them to be [F]grateful
I'm sure that they've been [G7]told   


[C]If I knew then what I [F]know now
That [C]would have messed it up [F]somehow
[C]When the day stretched out before me
Like a [G7]long long Texas [C]road

I've worked in city [F]factories
Their [C]plastic dirt still [F]clings to me
[C]Monotony near killed me [F]Lord
It was a heavy [G7]load   


I've been up and I've been down
I've worked the fields I've plowed the ground
I've taken strain and pressure
Till I thought I might explode

Now I yearn for childhood days
Of model planes and lemonade
When the day stretched out before me
Like a long long Texas road

Yes a long long Texas road bout a million miles or so
When you're just a child there ain't no time but now
Must have left that long old road seven hundred years ago
And I'd find it once again if I knew how

I've worked in city factories
Their plastic dirt still clings to me
Monotony near killed me Lord
It was a heavy load

Now I dream of comic books
And horny toads and fishing hooks
When the day stretched out before me
Like a long long Texas road

I've worked in city factories
Their plastic dirt still clings to me
Monotony near killed me Lord
It was a heavy load

So I watch the children play
And dream my dreams of yesterday
Don't tell them to be grateful
I'm sure that they've been told

If I knew then what I know now
That would have messed it up somehow
When the day stretched out before me
Like a long long Texas road

I've worked in city factories
Their plastic dirt still clings to me
Monotony near killed me Lord
It was a heavy load
