[Intro]
G, G, Am, Am

[Verse 1]
G                G                         Am                    Am
I was twenty and she was eighteen. We were just about as wild as we were
             G                  G     Am     Am
green in the ways of the world
    G                    G                   Am                    Am
She picked me up in that red ragtop. We were free of the folks and hiding 
                   G           G                 Am            Am
from the cops on a summer night, running all the red lights
     G                 G
We'd park way out in a clearing in a grove
        Am                    Am
And the night was as hot as a coal-burning stove
        G               G         Am           Am
We were cooking with gas. knew it had to last

[Chorus]
                    C   G  Am  Am
In the back of that red ragtop
         C      G     Am    Am  Am  Am
She said please don't stop

[Verse 2]
         G                   G
Well the very first time her mother met me
    Am                         Am               G            G   Am   Am
Her green-eyed girl had been a mother-to-be for two weeks
      G              G
I was out of job and she was in school
    Am                    Am                      
And life was fast and the world was cruel
        G             G                   Am             Am
We were young and wild. We decided not to have the child
      G                      G
So we did what we did and we tried to forget
       Am                            Am
And we swore up and down there would be no regrets
       G             G                Am              Am
In the morning light,  but on the way home that night

[Chorus 2]
                    C   G  Am  Am
On the back of that red ragtop
         C      G      Am  Am     C  G  Am  Am
She said please don't stop loving me

[Verse 3]
        C        G       Am      Am
We took one more trip around the sun
           C        G              Am    Am
But it was all make believe in the end
         C         G         Am    Am
And no I can't say where she is today
        C              G        Am   Am  C  C  Am  Am
I can't remember who I was back then
G  G  Am  Am
         G                      G
Well you do what you do and you pay for your sins
            Am                    Am
And there's no such thing as what might have been
         G            G           Am               Am
That's a waste of time, Drive you out of your mind
      G                      G
I was stopped at a red light just yesterday
   Am                    Am
Beside a young girl in a cabriolet
        G              G                 Am        Am
And her eyes were green. And I was in an old scene

[Outro] (x2)
                   C   G  Am  Am
I was back in that red ragtop
       C   G   Am   Am
On the day she stopped loving me
C  G  Am  Am
