Hillbilly Highway
Perofrmed by Warren 'Potsie' Weber

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, never heard such a lonesome sound,
Pretty soon the dirt road turned into blacktop, Detroit City bound

Down that hillbilly highway,
That hillbilly highway,
Hillbilly highway
Goes on and on

He worked and saved his money so that one day he might send
My old man 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 hillbilly highway,
That hillbilly highway,
Hillbilly highway
Goes on and on

Grandaddy 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
