Intro Chords - E - C - D-A - D-A

               the "D' during the verse could also
                be played as  "D11"=  554010


[Verse]

E
Becky was the beauty from south Alabama,
    C
Her daddy had a heart like a nine pound hammer,
   D
I think he even did a little time in the slammer,
A
What was I thinkin'


[Verse 2]

E
She snuck out one night and met me by the front gate,
    C
Her daddy came out a wavin' that twelve guage,
   D
we tore out of the drive, he peppered my tailgate,
A
What was I thinkin'


[Bridge]

B
Oh I knew there'd be hell to pay,
B
But that crossed my mind a little too late,


[Chorus]

            E                D            A
Cause I was thinkin' 'bout a little white tank top,
G             E             D         A
Sittin' right there in the middle by me,
      E                D          
I was thinkin' 'bout a long kiss,
A                 G
Man I just gotta get,
E               D            A
Goin' where the night might lead,
B                        D - D - A - A
I know what I was feelin' 
                       E - C - D-A - D-A
But, what was I thinkin'


[Verse 3]

By the county line, the cop's were nippin' on our heels
Pulled off the road, kicked it in four-wheel
Shut off the lights, tore through a corn field
What was I thinkin'


[Verse 4]

Out the the other side, she was hollerin' "faster"
Took a dirt road, had the radio blastin'
Hit the honky tonk for a little close dancin'
What was I thinkin'


[Bridge]

Oh, I knew there'd be hell to pay
But, that crossed my mind a little too late


[Chorus]

Cause I was thinkin' 'bout a little white tank top
Sittin' right there in the middle by me
I was thinkin' 'bout a long kiss 
Man I just gotta get
Goin' where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin'
But, what was I thinkin

(lead chords F# - A - E - F# - C - D - E)


[Verse 5]

When a mountain of a man with a 'Born To Kill' tattoo
Tried to cut in, I knocked out his front tooth
Ran outside, hood-slidin' like Bo Duke
What was I thinkin'


[Verse 6]

Finally got her home at half past too late,
Her daddy, in a lawn chair, sittin' on the driveway
Put it in park, and he started my way
What was I thinkin'

G
Oh...what was I thinkin'
C
What was I thinkin'
               D#9+/5+   D#9+/5+  D#9+/5+    
Then she gave a come-and-get-me grin
D#9+/5+                       D#9+/5+
Like a bullet, we were gone again 


[Chorus]

            E                D            A
Cause I was thinkin' 'bout a little white tank top,
G             E             D         A
Sittin' right there in the middle by me,
      E                D          
I was thinkin' 'bout a long kiss,
A                G
Man I just gotta get,
E               D            A
Goin' where the night might lead,
B                        D - D - A - A
I know what I was feelin' 
                       E - C - D-A - D-A
But, what was I thinkin'
 
(Ending chords are E - C - D-A - D-A)
