Let chords ring with repeated lines in chorus.
I like to carry the last 'ride' in final chorus through the chord progression D C G D

D
I was thumbing my way back from Montgomery
        F
with my guitar on my back
       G
when a man pulled up beside me
      D
in an antique Cadillac

D
He was dressed like 1950
     F
half drunk and hollowed eyed
           G
said its a long walk back to Nashville
          D
would you like a ride son

D
So I jumped into the front seat
       F
and he turned on the radio
        G
and the sad songs coming out those speakers
      D
was a solid country gold

D
Well I noticed the stranger was a ghost white pale
        F
when he asked me for a light
       G
then I knew there was something strange
           D 
about this ride

chorus:

        C
He said mister can you make folks
G
cry when you play and
D
sing

D
have you paid your dues
can you moan the blues 

        A
can you bend those guitar strings

    C
And son can you make folks

G
feel what you feel

  D
inside.... 

            C
cuz if your big star bound 

       G
let me warn you its a 

D
long hard ride

        C (one stroke)
if your big star bound

       G (one stroke)
let me warn you its a

          D
long hard ride

D   C   G   D

verse 2

D
Well he cried just south of Nashville
        
       F
and he turned that car around

     G
said this is where you get out boy

        D
cuz i'm heading on back to alabam

D
So I jumped outa that ole Cadillac

         F
and said mister many thanks

            G
he said you don't have to call mister,  mister

D
the whole world calls me HANK
