Billy Currington
Good Directions

This is the actual version of the song (no capo). I made this tab so it would be easy to transpose. Billy 
Currington plays this song live with a capo on the 3rd fret (transpose 3 steps down). However, I believe that
on the studio recording the guitar player plays this song with a capo on the 5th fret 
(transpose 5 steps down). This seems to match the chord voicing of the studio track and would adhere to 
Nashville's K.I.S.S. methodology. Capo 5 works very well for the F, C/E, Dm (C, G/B, Am capo 5th fret) 
chord progression during the bridge.

Intro:  F   Am   Bb   C   F   C7

Verse I:
                    F
I was sittin' there sellin' turnips on a flatbed truck
Am
Crunchin' on a pork rind when she pulled up
    Bb                          C                   Dm
She had to be thinkin' "This is where Rednecks come from"
        F 
She had Hollywood written on her license plate
        Am
She was lost and lookin' for the interstate
Bb                C                          F
Needin' directions and I was the man for the job

Chorus:
           Bb                     C
I told her way up yonder past the caution light
          Bb                           C
There's a little country store with an old Coke sign
          Bb                   C                          Dm
You gotta stop in and ask Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
       Bb                        Gm
Then a left will take you to the interstate
      Bb                   C                  F         C7
But a right will bring you right back here to me

Verse II:
                    F 
I was sittin' there thinkin' 'bout her pretty face
Am        
Kickin' myself for not catchin' her name
Bb                           C                            Dm
I threw my hat and thought, "You fool, that could've been love"
  F      
I knew my old Ford couldn't run her down
Am
She probably didn't like me anyhow
     Bb                   C              F
So I watched her disappear in a cloud of dust.

Chorus:
           Bb                     C
I told her way up yonder past the caution light
          Bb                           C
There's a little country store with an old Coke sign
          Bb                   C                          Dm
You gotta stop in and ask Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
       Bb                        Gm
Then a left will take you to the interstate
      Bb                   C                  F         
But a right will bring you right back here to me

Bridge: 
        Bb                   C
Is this Georgia heat playin' tricks on me
      F        C/E           Dm
Or am I really seein' what I think I see
    Bb          C                     F *
The woman of my dreams comin' back to me

Instrumental:  F   Am   Bb   C   F

Chorus:
         Bb                     C
She went way up yonder past the caution light
Bb (strong pause)   C              
Don't know why, but somethin' felt right
         Bb                        C                          Dm
When she stopped in and asked Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
                Bb                         C                  F
Mama gave her a big 'ol glass and sent her right back here to me
      Bb              C7                        F
Thank God for good directions:  and turnip greens


*During the bridge, the F before the instrumental could be a Dm. The vocals seem to have a minor tonality
to them. However, the bass sounds like it is playing an F. A Dm could be substituted here if desired.

I know it is technically the 'same', but, the A# should be a Bb. This is Ultimate Guitar's automatic chord correction, not the artists'. It is still troublesome to my O.C.D.
