Rocky Road Blues

Lyrics: Bill Monroe
Music: Bill Monroe

Played by David Nelson with Phil Lesh & Friends and with the New Riders of the Purple Sage.

Chorus
Now the road is rocky, but it won't be rocky long
Now the road is rocky, but it won't be rocky long
Because another man has got my woman and gone

I got the blues and I'm wearing out the soles of my shoes
I got the blues and I'm wearing out the soles of my shoes
My baby's left me with these doggone blues

[chorus]

You don't miss your water til that well run dry
You don't miss your water til that well run dry
You don't miss your baby till she say goodbye

[chorus]

I wish to the Lord to bring my baby back home
I wish to the Lord to bring my baby back home
Oh I got lonesome, just don't want to be alone

[chorus]

[chorus]
