[VERSE 1]
D                       G
Saw a girl at a picture show
D                         G
Walked right up and said “Hello
    C                    G
You seem to be a girl in need
C                         G 
I’m a guy who’s built for speed
C                          G
You and me could have some fun
C          D      G
You pretty little one”

D                          G
Took her riding around the town
D                           G
Ain’t no woman ever shut me down
C                                G
“Have you ever seen a truck like this
C                  G
How about a little kiss
C          D      G
You pretty little one”


  D     C    G     C

[CHORUS]
G      C      D
Pretty little one
G      C      D
Pretty little one


[VERSE 2]
D                             G
Took her out about a month or so
D                       G
She's my gal I told her so
C                  G
She resisted for a bit
C                      G
Baby that’s the way of it
C          D      G
You pretty little one

D                            G
Couple of times she tried to leave
  D                             G
I told her “that don’t work for me”
    C                   G
Her daddy tried to intervene
C                        G
Folks, I’m just a mean machine
C                     G
I can handle dumb old Pops
C                         G
What’s he done but shovel rocks
C                     G
I said, “Baby, that’s enough”
C                         G
I might have got a little rough
      C      D      G
On my pretty little one”

[CHORUS]
G      C      D
Pretty little one
G      C      D
Pretty little one


[VERSE 3]
D                           G
Then she called me late one night
D                            G
Said, “It’s over - let’s not fight”
C                          G
I said, “Sure but one more talk
C                   G
Maybe just a little walk
C                        G
Round the block - a nice goodbye
C                      G
You’re so lovely honey pie”
C                       G
I went over, picked her up
C                    G
Got her in my pickup truck
C                       G
Drivin’ slow around the town
C                    G
Then I put the pedal down
C                     G
Took her out a gravel road
C                              G
Stopped the truck where no one goes
C                          G
This is where the job gets done
      C      D      G
On my pretty little one”

[CHORUS]
G      C      D
Pretty little one
G      C      D
Pretty little one


[VERSE 4]
D                         G
Blackest night that I had seen
D                      G
In the darkness I felt mean
C                       G
From my boot I pulled a knife
C                         G
Said “I’m gonna take your life”
C                     G
I was calm as I could get
C              G
So I lit a cigarette
C                      G
In the flicker I could see
C                           G
She had a pistol trained on me
C           D      G
That pretty little one

D                      G
I said, “Mister I’m no fool
D                          G
My daddy raised me country cool
C                    G
Think my daddy knows enough
C                                 G
Of guys like you who think you’re tough
C                        G
He read you as easy as ABC
C                               G
That’s when he gave this gun to me
C                           G
And ever since your truck arrived
C                            G
My hand’s been on this forty-five


[VERSE 5]
C                     G
I went at her with my knife
C                                G
She pulled that trigger, shot me twice
C                       G
In the heart and in the head
C                                G
Took half a breath, slumped over dead
C                           G
She pumped another for good luck
C                       G
Right between my butter cups
C           D      G
That pretty little one


  D     C    G     C

[CHORUS]
G      C      D
Pretty little one
G      C      D
Pretty little one


[VERSE 6]
D                          G
In the grave, I’m dead and gone
D                              G
The little gal, she wrote this song
C                    G
She came over in due course
C                    G
Sang to me without remorse 
C                         G
Then she whispered to the ground

C                         G
I’ll let you have another round
C               G
My name is Lucy Allencot
C                          G
You should know that I was not
C           D      G
Your pretty little one
