The Old Man Down the Road

 
 (12 measures of Em) 
He take-a thunder from the mountain 
He take-a lightnin' from the sky 
             C 
He bring the strong man to his beggin' knees 
            Em 
He make the young girl's mama cry 
 

You got to hidey-hide 
You got to jump and run 
You got to hidey-hidey-hide 
    C       B7            Em 
The old man   is down the road 
 
Verse 2: 
He got the voices speakin' riddles 
He got eyes as black as coal 
He got a suitcase covered with rattlesnake hide 
And he stands right in the road 
 
(chorus, with "away" added to end of 2nd line) 
 
(instrumental) 
 
Verse 3: 
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 
 
(chorus; this time, add "again" to end of 2nd line 
   and sing 4th line twice) 
 
(play Em continuously and fade)
