TITLE: The Old Man Down the Road
Lyrics and Chords

He take the thunder from the mountain
He take the lightning from the sky
He bring the strong man to his begging knee
He make the young girl's mama cry

/ Em7 Em - - / / C - Em - / 1st /

You got to hidey-hide
You got to jump and run
You got to hidey-hidey-hide
The old man is down the road

/ " / / / C - B7 - Em - - - / 

He got the voices speak in riddles
He got the eye as black as coal
He got a suitcase covered with rattlesnake hide
And he stands right in the road

{Refrain} to jump up run away...

He make the river call your lover
He make the barking of the hound
Put a shadow 'cross the window
When the old man comes around

{Refrain} to jump up run again...

The old man is down the road
