[Intro]

G   


[Verse 1]

G                   D
 It was painted red, the stripe was white
        C                      
It was eighteen feet from the bow to the stern light
G                    D
 Second hand from a dealer in Atlanta
   C                          
I rode up with daddy when he went there to get 'er
G              D
 Put on a shine put on a motor
  C                     
Built out of love and made for the water
G                              D
 Ran her for years 'till the transom got rotten
   C                             C  N.C.
A piece of my childhood that'll never be forgotten


[Chorus]

      G              D
It was just an old plywood boat
        C                         
With a seventy-five Johnson with electric choke
G                 D
 A young boy two hands on the wheel
C                        
 I can't replace the way it made me feel
           G                        D
And I would turn her sharp and I'd make it wide
        C                                 
And he'd say you can't beat the way an old wood boat rides
Em                             A
 Just a little lake 'cross the Alabama line
           C               D                 G     D    C    D
But I was king of the ocean when daddy let me drive


[Verse 2]

G                       D
 Just an old half-ton short bed Ford
   C                  
My uncle bought new in sixty-four
 G                            D
Daddy got it right 'cause the engine was smokin'
C                       
 A couple of burnt valves and he had it goin'
G                                D
 He'd let me drive her and we'd haul off a load
        C                               
Down a dirt strip where we'd dump trash off of Thigpen road
     G                                D
I'd sit up in the seat and stretch my feet out to the pedals
  C                        
Smilin' like a hero that just received his medal


[Chorus]

      G             D
It was just an old hand-me-down Ford
          C                               
With a three speed on the column and a dent in the door
G                 D
 A young boy two hands on the wheel
C                  
 I can't replace the way it made me feel
       G                         D
I would press that clutch and I'd keep it right
            C                         
And he'd say a little slower son you're doin' just fine
Em                       A                           C
 Just a dirt road with trash on each side but I was Mario Andretti
D                  G      
  When daddy let me drive


[Interlude]

(G)   |D    |C     |D    ||x2    D


[Bridge]

G                         D
 I'm grown up now three daughters of my own
    C
 I let 'em drive my old jeep 'cross the pasture at our home
G                        D
 Maybe one day they'll reach back in their file
      C  N.C.                       C   N.C.
 And pull out that old mem'ry and think of me and smile


[Chorus]

       G                    D
And say it was just an old worn out jeep
 C
Rusty old floor boards hot on my feet
G                  D
 A young girl two hands on the wheel
C
 I can't replace the way it made me feel
             G                   D
 And he'd say turn it left and steer it right
    C
 Straighten up girl now you're doin' just fine
Em                            A
 Just a little valley by the river where we'd ride
            C                D                 G     
 But I was high on a mountain when daddy let me drive
D                  C   D             G     D    C     D
    daddy let me drive   oh he let me drive

G                    D
 She’s just an old plywood boat
        C                                        G
With a seventy-five Johnson with electric choke
