Rocky Road Blues

Rocky Road Blues

New lyrics © 2011 by Wayne Erbsen, Fracas Music (BMI).

A woman like that, all she do is fuss,
A woman like that, all she do is fuss.
I’m goin’ back to Texas on the Greyhound bus.

Chorus:
Oh, the road is rocky, but it won’t be rocky long,
The road is rocky, but it won’t be rocky long.
Been catchin’ the devil since my gal’s been gone.

When you go fishin’ take a worm and a line,
When you go fishin’ take a worm and a line.
And when you go courtin’ just ask her to be mine. (Chorus)

I got to buy myself a brand new pair of shoes,
I got to buy myself a brand new pair of shoes.
I’m leaving you honey, gonna walk off all my blues. (Chorus)

Yes, I’ll walk the streets with my suitcase in my hand,
I’ll walk the streets with my suitcase in my hand.
I’m lookin’ for that woman who ain’t got no man. (Chorus)

Yes I’m goin’ to town with my Stetson on my head,
Yes I’m goin’ to town with my Stetson on my head.
Try to take my hat and you’ll sure enough be dead. (Chorus)
