Long Hard Road (The Sharecropper's Dream) - Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

Way back in my memory there's a scene that I recall

 

Of a little run down cabin in the woods

 

Where my dad never promised that our blue moon would turn gold

 

But he laid awake nights wishin' that it would

 

When the world was on our radio hard work was on our minds

 

We lived our day to day in plain dirt fashion

 

With ol' overalls and cotton balls all strapped across your back

 

Man it's hard to make believe there ain't nothing wrong

 

But momma kept the Bible read and daddy kept our family fed

And somewhere in between I must have grown

 

Cause someday I was dreamin' that a song that I was singin'

Takes me down the road to where I want to go

 

Now I know it's a long hard road

 

Sometimes I remember when I stay up late at night

 

When the sun up came we got up and went

 

In the shadows of a working' day our moonlight hours spent

 

Singin' songs along with Gramma's radio

 

Now I'm beatin' down a ol' blacktop road sleepin' in a sack

 

Livin' in my memories all in vain

 

'Cause those city lights ain't all that bright compared to what its like

To see lightning bugs go dancin' in the rain

 

Momma played the guitar then and daddy made the saw blade bend

And raindrops played the tin roof like a drum

 

But I just kept on dreamin' that a song that I was singin'

Takes me down the road to where my name is known

 

Now I'm gone and its a long hard road

 

Yes I know Its a long hard road
