My Road Is Rough and Rocky (How Long, How Long?)

This song is by Sam Collins and appears on the album Sam Collins (1927-1931) (1991).

You don't b'lieve I'm travelin' on the road somewhere
Get your book and pencil and count the days I'm gone
I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way

You can go to Memphis, find me there
Catch the first train smokin' find me on the road somewhere
And I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way

You've been talkin' 'bout your brickhouse but you ought to see mine
It ain't so pretty but it's built up fine
I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way

I got up this mornin' looked at the risin' sun
Can't nobody run me like them bloodhounds done
And I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way

I got up in my stockings, tippin' 'cross the floor
Heared them bloodhounds a-rappin' upon my door
And I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way

I have chickens on my back and there's the hounds on my track
I dropped my hat1 'n' I couldn't stop to look back
And I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way

I could hear them pistol balls zoomin' by my head
I b'lieve to my soul they gonna kill me dead
And I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way

I got up this mornin' just about the break of day
I could hear them there bloodhounds a-comin' down my way
And I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way

I got up this mornin', fell down 'cross my bed
I could hear somethin' perchin' all around my head
And I am gone, I'm long gone
My road is rough and rocky on my way
