[Intro] G G G G

[Verse 1]
G
Hey pretty baby are you ready for me
                                       C
It's your good rockin' daddy down from Tennessee

I'm just out of Austin bound for San Antone
         C
With the radio blastin' and the bird dog on

G
There's a speed trap up ahead in Selma Town
                         C
But no local yokel gonna shut me down

D
'Cause me and my boys got this rig unwound
           C                                   G
And we've come a thousand miles from a Guitar Town

[Verse 2]
G
Nothin' ever happened 'round my hometown
                             C
And I ain't the kind to just hang around

[Riff]

D
But I heard someone callin' my name one day
      C
And I followed that voice down the lost highway
G
Everybody told me you can't get far
                              C
On thirty-seven dollars and a jap guitar

D
Now I'm smokin' into Texas with the hammer down
      C                                    G
And a rockin' little combo from the Guitar Town

D
Hey pretty baby don't you know it ain't my fault
   C                            G
I love to hear the steel belts hummin' on the asphalt
D
Wake up in the middle of the night in a truck stop
C                         D7 (or D)
Stumble in the restaurant wonderin' why I don't stop
G
Gotta keep rockin' why I still can
                             C
I gotta two pack habit and a motel tan

D
But when my boots hit the boards I'm a brand new man
C
With my back to the riser I make my stand
(drums stop)
G
Hey pretty baby won't you hold me tight
                                     C            C G D (no riff here)
We're loadin' up and rollin' out of here tonight
D
One of these days I'm gonna settle down
C                                       G
And take you back with me to the Guitar Town

The lead riff in this song is in Drop D tuning. Drop the 6th string "E" down a whole step to "D"
