The Road It Gives, The Road It Takes Away - Tom Russell


Chord diagramFF		            		Chord diagramBb majorBb  	          			Chord diagramFF
I was walking down a quiet road in Ireland
Chord diagramFF		            		Chord diagramBb majorBb  	         		 Chord diagramC majorC
Out beneath those tough old ancient stars
	       Chord diagramDmDm				           				Chord diagramBb majorBb
When  I thought I heard old Scottish Mike singing Carrick Fergus
		   		 Chord diagramFF				             	 Chord diagramC majorC
As I recalled those wild days in those loud Norwegian bars


Chord diagramFF		            		Chord diagramBb majorBb  	          			Chord diagramFF
He’d sing, “I’m drunk today and I’m rarely sober,
Chord diagramFF		            		Chord diagramBb majorBb  	         		 Chord diagramC majorC
Like a soldier on the road to Mandalay.”
	 Chord diagramDmDm
Well the road it gave him wine
	Chord diagramBb majorBb
and the women fair and fine
 Chord diagramFF						 Chord diagramC majorC
He drunk himself to death, I heard today

Chorus:
Chord diagramC majorC						Chord diagramFF
But we’ll sing hallelujah, sing it in the morning
        Chord diagramBb majorBb		  Chord diagramDmDm		      Chord diagramC majorC
And thank the Lord for giving us one more day
	        Chord diagramFF
And for the one’s that have passed on through
    Chord diagramFF (add Chord diagramG+G)         Chord diagramFsus4Fsus4	        Chord diagramBb majorBb
We’ll sing this one for you
	Chord diagramBb majorBb		         Chord diagramC majorC 	      Chord diagramFF
The road it gives and the road it takes away






Chord diagramFF		            Chord diagramBb majorBb  	          	Chord diagramFF
My baby said she didn’t mind me travelin
Chord diagramFF		            	Chord diagramBb majorBb  	          	Chord diagramC majorC
She enjoyed the time alone when I was gone
 Chord diagramDmDm				           				Chord diagramBb majorBb
Til she looked me in the eyes and said it’s  over
	 Chord diagramFF				             	 Chord diagramC majorC
And I saw the anger buried far too long

Chord diagramFF		            Chord diagramBb majorBb  	          	Chord diagramFF
I picked up my guitar and sang the Dutchman
Chord diagramFF		            Chord diagramBb majorBb  	          	Chord diagramC majorC
About two people whose love had seen kinder days
	 Chord diagramDmDm
But my baby she was gone,
		 Chord diagramBb majorBb
before the song was sung
	 Chord diagramFF				             	 Chord diagramC majorC
Well my music never touched her anyway

Chorus:
Chord diagramC majorC						Chord diagramFF
But we’ll sing hallelujah, sing it in the morning
        Chord diagramBb majorBb		  Chord diagramDmDm		      Chord diagramC majorC
And thank the Lord for giving us one more day
	        Chord diagramFF
And for the one’s that have passed on through
    Chord diagramFF (add Chord diagramG+G)         Chord diagramFsus4Fsus4	        Chord diagramBb majorBb
We’ll sing this one for you
	Chord diagramBb majorBb		         Chord diagramC majorC 	      Chord diagramFF
The road it gives and the road it takes away

	Chord diagramBb majorBb		         Chord diagramC majorC 	      Chord diagramFF
The road it gives and the road it takes away

	Chord diagramBb majorBb		         Chord diagramC majorC 	      Chord diagramFF
The road it gives and the road it takes away
