D                                                     G                D
Dollard Marlowe doesn’t live on the Kaywood Road anymore

                               C                                        A
They took him to the City to a government old age home

D                          G                           D
All of us eventually will wither and grow old

                        C                                                D
Dollard Marlowe doesn’t live on the Kaywood Road anymore

D                                                 G                             D
The wood pile by the back shed, the work of his withered hands

                            C                                     A
Home built of local pine, when he was a young man

               D                                          G                         D
Now they got him in that city compound ‘til he breathes no more

                        C                                        D       D7
I wonder if he’d rather die along the Kaywood Road

        G                                             C                        G
Last summer, Dollard shared a pot of Stag Creek country tea

D                                                                            A
He poured himself a shaky cup, then one for Billy and me

     G                                         D
In leaving, we promised him we’d come again for sure

                                C                                                D
But Dollard Marlowe doesn’t live on the Kaywood Road anymore

D                                      G                      D
Progress teaches all of us, we must pay its price

                            C                                        A
Electric lights are practical, but a lantern sure is nice

         D                                                 G                        D
Don’t trust your neighbour out of fear that he might get you first

                           C                                                            D     D7
And don’t dare die until you’ve checked with the city officials first

- - -

G                                             C              G
Dollard now is crying out for the only life he knows

D                                                                A
Cursing modern progress that took away his home

     G                                                      D
But one day soon his soul will come back to that cabin door

                               C                                                    D
And stare upon the pavement they’ve laid on the Kaywood Road

      D                       C                                            D
No, Dollard Marlowe doesn’t live on that dusty road anymore
