ROCKY ROAD CINDY. AKA and see "I Get My Whiskey from Rockingham." Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, north Georgia. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB.

Where'd you get your whiskey, where'd you get your dram?
I got it from a little girl way down in Rockingham.

Rocky Road Cindy, rocky road to town,
Rocky Road Cindy, way down in Rockingham.

I went down to Rockingham, I did not go to stay,
I fell in love with a pretty girl and I could not get away.

Lips as red as a red rose, her hair was huckleberry brown,
The sweetest girl I ever saw, way down in Rockingham.

First I kissed Cindy once and then I kissed her twice,
I'll tell you where I kissed her, gonna kiss her there tonight. ... (Kuntz)
