Readin Writin Rt 23

	  		Intro: D 

             D 
They learned readin', writin', Route 23 
       G                                          D 
To the jobs that lay waiting in those cities' factories 
            A 
they didn't know that that old highway 
      G                          D 
Could lead them to a world of misery 
         D 
Have you ever been down Kentucky way 

Say south of Prestonburg 

Have you ever been up in a holler 

Have you ever heard 
  G 
A mountain man cough his life away 

From diggin' that black coal 
              D                      
In those dark mines, those old dark mines 
       C 
If you had you might just understand 
    G                              D 
The reason that they left is all behind

Chorus: D 'cause They learned readin', wrightin', Route 23 G D To the jobs that lay waitin' in those cities' factories They learned readin', writin', roads to the north G D To the luxury and comfort a coal miner can't afford They thought readin', writin', Route 23 G D Ah Would take them to the good life that they had never seen A They didn't know that old highway G D Could lead them to a world of misery

guitar Solo: D A G D D Have you ever seen 'em Put the kids in the car after work on Friday night Pull up in a holler about 2 A. M. And see a light still shinin' bright G Those mountain folks sat up that late to hold those little grandkids D In their arms, in their arms C And I'm proud to say that I've been blessed G D And touched by their sweet hillbilly charm
