[Intro]  
A

[Verse]
A                      E
Was painted red, the stripe was white,
       D
It was 18 feet from the bow to the stern light.
A                  E
Second hand from a dealer in Atlanta,
  D
I rode up with Daddy when he went there to get her.
A              E
Put on a shine, put on the motor,
D
Built out of love, made for the water.
A                          E
Ran her for years 'til the transom got rotten,
  D
A piece of my childhood that'll never be forgotten. It was,

[Chorus]
        A           E
It was, Just an old plywood boat,
        D
With a '75 Johnson, with electric choke.
A                E
A young boy, two hands on the wheel,
D
I can't replace the way it made me feel, 
            A                      E
And I would turn her sharp and I'd, make it whine,
         D
He'd say, you can't beat the way an old wood boat rides.
B                           
Just a little lake across the Alabama line,
          D                 E                 A     E  D  E
But I was king of the ocean, when daddy let me drive.

[Verse]
A                    E
Just an old half-ton short bed Ford,
   D
My uncle bought it new in '64.
A                               E
Daddy got it right ', 'cause the engine was smokin',
D
Couple of burnt valves and he had it goin'.
A                              E
He'd let me drive her and we'd haul off a load,
       D
Down a dirt strip where we'd dump trash, off of thigpen road.
    A                                  E
I'd sit up in the seat, and stretch my feet out to the pedals,
D
Smilin' like a hero that just received his medal. It was,

[Verse]
A           E
Just an old hand-me down Ford,
     D
With 3-speed on the column, and a dent in the door.
A                E      
A young boy, two hands on the wheel,
D
I can't replace the way it made me feel,
            A                          E
And I would press that clutch, and I'd keep it right,
             D 
And he'd say, a little slower son, you're doin' just fine.
B                     
Just a dirt road with trash on each side,
          D             E                 A     
But I was Mario Andretti when daddy let me drive.

[Instrumental]
E  D  E  A  E  D  E

[Bridge]
A                       E
I'm grown up now, three daughters of my own.
  D
I let 'em drive my old jeep 'cross the pasture at our home.
A                      E
Maybe one day, they'll reach back in their file,
    D
And pull out that old memory, and think of me and smile, and say,

[Chorus]
A                  E
It was just an old worn out jeep,
     D
With rusty old floorboards that were hot on my feet.
A                 E
A young girl, two hands on the wheel,
D
I can't replace the way it made me feel,
              A                E
And he'd say, turn it left and steer it right,
D
Straighten up girl now, you're doin' just fine.
B                            
Just a little valley, by the river where we'd ride,
          D                  E                 A
But I was high on a mountain, when Daddy let me drive.
E                D      E
When Daddy let me drive.
             A     E  D  E  
Oh he let me drive.

[Outro]
A                 E  
She's just an old plywood boat,
        D                                  A
With a '75 Johnson, with electric choke....
