  THE RIDE
                        by: David Allan Coe   
 
Intro: A# F C, repeated twice.

C                                    D#
I was thumbin' back from Montgomery 
D#
with a guitar on my back
F                                           C
When a stranger pulled up beside me in an antique Cadillac.
C                                     D#
Well, he was dressed like 1950, half drunk and hallow eyed
F                                               C
Its a long walk to Nashville, would you like a ride, son.
C                                    D#
He sat down in the front seat, and turned on the radio
          F                                             C 
and them sad old songs comin' outta them speakers was solid country gold.
 C                                                         D#
Then I noticed the stranger was ghost white pale when he asked me for a light.
     F                                           C
And knew there was somethin' strange about this ride.

CHORUS:
           A#                       F                     C
He said: Mister can you make folks cry when you play and sang.
 C     
Can you pay your dues, can you moan the blues
         G
Can you bend them guitar strangs.
          A#                      F                   C
He said: Boy, can you make folks feel what you feel inside,
               A#                    F                        C
Cause if your big star bound let me warn you its a long hard ride.

2. 

Well, he cried just south of Nashville, and he turned that car around.
he said: (spoken) this is where you get off, boy 
cause I'm going back to Alabam'.
I stepped out of that ole Cadillac and I said Mister, many thanks.
he said you don't have to call me mister, Mister.
The whole world calls me Hank.   

repeat Chorus once or twice, depending on how you want to play it. 

Copy and post from someone else I didnot write these though I do believe they are correct.
