INTRO



             D
They learned readin', rightin', Route 23,
       G                                            D
To the jobs that laid waiting in those cities' factories.
            A
They didn't know that that old highway          
      G                           D                               
Could lead them to a world of misery.  (FILL*1)



         D
Have you ever been down Kentucky way,

Say south of Prestonsburg?

Have you ever been up in a holler,

Or have you ever heard
  G
A mountain man cough his life away,
                                           D
       C    
If you had you might just understand
    G                              D                                     
The reason that they left it all behind.  (FILL*2)



                          
                                       
                    D
'Cause they learned readin', rightin', Route 23,  (with FILL*3)
       G                                            D
To the jobs that laid waiting in those cities' factories.
                                                    
They learned readin', rightin', roads to the north,  (with FILL*3)
       G                                       D
To the luxury and comfort a coal miner can't afford.

They thought readin', rightin', Route 23,  (with FILL*3)
      G                                              D
Would take them to the good life that they had never seen.  (FILL*1)
            A
They didn't know that that old highway
      G                           D
Could lead them to a world of misery.

         D
Have you ever seen 'em put the kids in the car after work on Friday night?

Pull up in a holler about 2 a.m. and see a light still burnin' bright.
      G
Those mountain folks sat up that late,
                                        D
To hold those little grandkids in their arms, in their arms.
        C     
And I'm proud to say that I've been blessed,
    G                                D
And touched by their sweet hillbilly charm.  (FILL*4)



                 D
But they learned readin', rightin', Route 23,  (with FILL*3)
       G                                            D

Yeah, it turns out that that old highway
      G                          D
Could lead you to a world of misery.  (FILL*6)
