Mary held on to the three ton chain
Every little link was in our lord's name
A little bit further down the road, boys
A little bit further down the road

She pulled on the sleeves of her dear old pa
Ain't we gonna stop before Arkansas?
A little bit further down the road, boys
A little bit further down the road

This troubled land is all I see
These troubled visions of the gallows tree
And a little bit further down the road, boys
A little bit further down the road

The last place we stopped, they were unkind
My pa's hands trembled and we got back in line
And a little bit further down the road, boys
A little bit further down the road

We found a pasture near a lovely well
My pa said it would lead us straight to hell
And a little bit further down the road, boys
A little bit further down the road

This troubled land is all I see
These troubled visions of the gallows tree
A little bit further down the road, boys
A little bit further down the road

A little bit further down the road, boys
A little bit further down the road
A little bit further down the road
A little bit further down the road
A little bit further down the road
A little bit further down the road
A little bit further down the road
