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
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
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
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
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
