Jim Krause Lyr Req: Rocks and Gravel Makes a Solid Road (10) Lyr Req: Rocks and Gravel Makes a Solid Road 11 Dec 07

There's a blues song I used to sing a long time ago and I can only remember a fragment of it. I know it under the title

Rocks and Gravel

CHORUS:    Rocks and gravel makes a solid road (2X)
                      Takes the gal I love to satisfy my soul.

(verses as I remember them)
         I'm going to the race track to see my pony run (2X)
         If he wins any money, gonna take my baby some.

         I went to the depot and looked up on the board (2X)
         Said "Good times here, but better on down the road."

Seems to me there are at least two more verses. I'm not sure where the song comes from, Mance Lipscomb, maybe? Pretty sure it isn't Mississippi John Hurt. (Dang! I hate that CRS disease.)
