Rough and Rocky

G         C    G
Darling I have come to tell you
              C       G    D7
'Though it almost breaks my heart
G         C       G
But before the morning darling
D7             G
We'll be many miles apart.

CHO: C                        G
     Don't this road look rough and rocky
     C     G      D7
     Don't that sea look wide and deep
     G             C             G
     Don't my baby look the sweetest
     D7                 G
     When she's in my arms asleep.

Can't you hear the night birds crying
Far across the deep blue sea
While of others you are thinking
Won't you sometimes think of me?

One more kiss before I leave you
One more kiss before we part
You have caused me lots of trouble
Darling you have broke my heart.

Recorded by Flatt and Scruggs
