      About "Hillbilly Highway"

      Lyrics for Ricky Skaggs - "Hillbilly Highway"

      My grandaddy was a miner
      But he finally saw the light
      He didn't have much
      Just a beat-up truck and a dream about a better life
      Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye
      You never heard such a lonesome sound.

      Pretty soon the dirt road turned
      Into blacktop, Detroit City bound
      Down that hillbilly highway
      On That hillbilly highway
      That old hillbilly highway
      Goes on and on.

      Now he worked and saved his money
      So that one day he might send
      My daddy off to college
      To use his brains and not his hands
      Grandmama cried when she waved goodbye
      Never heard such a lonesome sound.

      But daddy had himself a good job in Houston
      One more rollin' down
      Down that old hillbilly highway
      That old hillbilly highway
      That old hillbilly highway
      Goes on and on.

      Now granddaddy rolled over in his grave
      The day that I quit school
      I just sat around the house playin' my guitar,
      Daddy said I was a fool
      My mama cried when I said goodbye,
      I never heard such a lonesome sound.

      Now I'm standin' on this highway
      And if you're going my way
      You know where I'm bound
      Down that old hillbilly highway
      That old hillbilly highway
      That old hillbilly highway
      Goes on and on
