Bm -- He was mad at me and you when he G Tied that chain to the front of my car and pulled me Em G Out of that ditch that I slid into.

D Dsus4 -- -- --------- INTERLUDE (Repeat Intro) --------- ------- VERSE 2 ------- D -- Your daddy is a deacon down at the Bm Salem Church of Christ, and he G Makes good money as long as Reynolds Em G Wrap keeps everything wrapped up tight. D -- Your mama's as good a wife and Bm Mama as she can be, and your G Sister keeps puttin' that sweet stuff on every- Em G body in town but me. A -- Your brother was the first-born, got ten Bm Fingers and ten toes, And it's a G Damn good thing cause he needs all twenty just to Em Keep the closet door G Closed. --------- INTERLUDE D Dsus2 G D (Repeat Intro) --------- ------- VERSE 3 ------- Em -- Maybe it's the twenty-six mile G Drive from Zip City to Colbert D Heights that keeps my mind clean, A Gets me through the night. Em -- Or maybe you're just a desti- G nation, a place for me to go that D Keeps me from having to deal with my A Seventeen-year-old mind all a- Em lone.

But you're Em Only fifteen, girl, you ain't G Got no secretary. And "For D Granted" is a mighty big word for a A Country girl like you. I think that's Em Just your Daddy talking, Cause he G Knows that blood red carpet down at the D Salem Church of Christ ain't gonna A ever see no wedding between Em *** (see INTERLUDE below) me and you. --------- INTERLUDE (Repeat Intro, beats 1/2 are 'me and you' from above) --------- ------- VERSE 5 ------- D Zip City it's a good thing that they Bm Built the wall around you, Zip G Up to Tennessee then zip right Em G Down to Ala-bama. I got D -- 350 heads on a Bm -- 305 engine, I get G ten miles to the gallon, I ain't Em G got no good in-tentions. ------ FINALE ------ D --crookedpath
