DON'T THIS ROAD LOOK ROUGH AND ROCKY
Writers Lester Flatt, earl Scruggs

Darling I have come to tell you
Though it almost break my heart
But before
Mr. Uncle Josh. Would you kindly play me some deep southern blues on that hound-dog guitar there. Ah, now that's what I'm talkin' about. Yeah.
that was before I met you 

I thought I was swinging the world by the tail 
I thought I could never be blue 
I thought I'd been kissed and I thought
I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time but that was before I met you
I never saw one that I wanted for mine but that was before I met you
I
I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time but that was before I met you
I never saw one that I wanted for mine but that was before I met you
I
before I met you

[Chorus]
Well I thought I was swinging the world by the tail
I thought I could never be blue
I thought I'd been kissed
And I
(Matraca Berg/Randy Scruggs)

She fixes her hair every morning
Long before seven o'clock
She'll tell you with her hair that piled up
She feels
that was before I met you 

I thought I was swinging the world by the tail 
I thought I could never be blue 
I thought I'd been kissed and I thought
As I walked her to the truck
Earl was crying "Don't you leave me"
I told him, this here's?..

The queen of my double wide trailer
With the polyester
I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time but that was before I met you
I never saw one that I wanted for mine but that was before I met you
I
that's how we do this
It's all about you Mayne
It's yo' life, let 'em know somethin'

I come from where they pop they collars
And couldn't be saved by
I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time but that was before I met you
I never saw one that I wanted for mine but that was before I met you
I
Well I thought I had seen good lookin' men in my time
That was before I met you
And I never saw one that I've wanted for mine
That was before I
I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time but that was before I met you
I never saw one that I wanted for mine but that was before I met you
I
I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time but that was before I met you
I never saw one that I wanted for mine but that was before I met you
I
(Words and Music by Joan Baez)


"You've loved me exquisitely."
"I tried to."
"Can we be best of friends now?"
"I never lied to you."
"And can I love
As I walked her to the truck
Earl was crying "Don't you leave me"
I told him, this here's?..

The queen of my double wide trailer
With the polyester
And then again it seems
I might have kissed you in my dreams
Where have we met before?

Each time I look at you
I pinch myself to see if it's true
I
life was just a lie
Before you I don't know how I got by

Before I met you, before I held you in the night
I don't know how I survived
Before I found
I never felt this way before I met you
You stole my heart and what is more, I let you
I fell in love too often I won't deny
But my heart didn't
I never felt this way before I met you
You stole my heart and what is more, I let you
I fell in love too often I won't deny
But my heart didn't
my life was just a lie
And before you, I don't know how I got by

Before I met you, before I held you in the night
(I don't know how I survived)
Before
And then again it seems
I might have kissed you in my dreams
Where have we met before?

Each time I look at you
I pinch myself to see if it's true
I
Please don't ask me how I know
The times before I met you long ago
If I could sit quite still
And times could pass me by
I'd sit quite still
and Via Ruche, just for fun that is

I have played with Xenon and beyond
I have a town house and a chalet next to the Earl
You know, Earl the Pearl
