New Cut Road (Remastered Live Version) - Emmylou Harris

Coleman Bonner was a fiddle playin fool


He's a backwoods rounder and a breaker of mules


Coleman Bonner's got a wore out bow

He's been playin all day down the new cut road


Coleman's little sister said you better act right

Daddy's gone to Louisville he'll be back tonight

He's gonna get another wagon and a good pair of mules

And we gonna move to Texas we just waitin on you


Coleman's daddy pulled up in the yard

He said pack up your lives kids it's gettin too hard


Kentucky's alright but there's too many people

Just the other day I thought I saw a church steeple


Coleman said daddy don't you worry bout me

I'm gonna stay here in Kentucky till the day I d

I'm gonna drink that sourmash and gonna race that mare

And find that woman with the fox red hair


Now you all been movin west since the day you got married


Well I'm gettin off the wagon daddy I'm too old to be carried


Gonna stay here in Kentucky where the bluegrass grow

I'm gonna play it all night down the new cut road


Coleman's daddy said now what's it all comn to


Young people these days are just as stubborn as mules


You can't make him go he's too old for that

It's that damned old fiddle and that bowler hat


Coleman's mama said let the boy stay

He's raised up solid and he can find his own way

But as for me honey I'm with you

I always thought Kentucky was just passin through

Coleman's little sister then she started into a cryi

And his daddy shook his head for the very last time


Coleman's mama said somebody's gotta do it

Wouldn't be no Kentucky less you didn't stick to it


Coleman Booner stood on the porch of that cabin

Watched em all go to Texas in a covered wagon

He pulled out his fiddle and he rosined up his bow

And he played a little tune called the new cut road
