INTRO: A

    A
I'm tired of walkin' down that lonesome road
    D                                   A
I'm tired of walkin' down that lonesome road
       E                                 A
It's a-mighty hard travelin' and a heavy load

  A
I swing that hammer and I draw a low straight line
  D                                           A
I swing that hammer and I draw a low straight line
       E                                 A
It's a forty-hour livin' for that gal of mine


Well the foreman asked me what might be my say
Oh the old foreman asked me what might be my say
I say just a drink of water, a favor on Judgment Day
I'm tired of walkin' down that lonesome road, yeah I'm tired of walkin' down that lonesome road It's a-might hard travellin' and a heavy load SOLO Well I roll the lucky dice and I draw winnin' hand I roll the lucky dice and I draw a winnin' hand But where my money goes I don't understand Well it's the king of memphis poppin' four-bit shives It's the king of memphis poppin' four-bit shives I'm up here in Kentucky, slave to this ol' mine Everytime it thunders I hear them sad old taps Oh, everytime it thunders I hear them sad old taps And if this mountain shaves it's gonna fall right in my lap SOLO Yeah, I'm tired of walkin' down that lonesome road I'm tired of walkin' down that lonesome road It's a-mighty hard travelin' and a heavy
