INTRO: G C D G


#1.
G                   C  
A friend and I made one short run to 
D             G
Knoxville one day.
   C                            G
We got the apple pie and coffee hungries 
       D
on the way.
   G             C                 D
We pulled into a little truck stop just 
           G     C               D
outside of town..pretty soon the waitress 
      G
came around.


#2.
G                                 D
She said my name is Betty and I'd know you 
   G
anywhere.
    C              G              A
I'd like to have a minute of your time if 
          D
you don't care.
          G            C
Would you sing a song about me and the 
D                 G
waitresses you've met.
C                D           G......E
About the broken promises we get.



CHORUS:
     A       D          A                  D
Now, listen, Betty, I'm singing your song, about 
            E                  A
the drivers that have done you wrong.
            D             E              A
All I wanna do is lay the blame where it belongs. 
D                  E             A.....G
Listen, Betty, I'm singing you a song.


#3.
G                C               D
There's a broken heart for every truckstop 
       G
on the right.
C                  G
There's a lonesome driver for each passing 
       D
set of lights.
     G                C              D
Now, I can't tell you how to love or tell you 
       G     C               D               G
how to live..all I can do is tell it like it is.


#4.
G                 C              D
There's a million waitresses all up and down 
    G
the line.
     C                   G                 A
I've seen some that were laughin' and I've seen 
               D
some that were cryin'.
     G                   C              D
I've left some that were happy and I've left 
               G
some that were blue.
   C                 D                 G....E
If you're a waitress here's a song for you.



CHORUS:
     A       D          A                  D
Now, listen, Betty, I'm singing your song, about 
            E                  A
the drivers that have done you wrong.
            D             E              A
All I wanna do is lay the blame where it belongs. 
D                  E             A.....G
Listen, Betty, I'm singing you a song.



#5.
G                C                 D
The highway is a part of hell that never caught 
   G
on fire.
    C             G
The driver is the kinda man the devil wouldn't 
D
hire.
       G                   C          D
That's what you're sayin', Betty, but you can't 
          G
stand the heat.
C                 D                 G....E
Quit that job and let those drivers be.


CHORUS:
     A       D          A                   D
Now, listen, Betty, I'm singing you a song, about 
            E                  A
the drivers that have done you wrong.
            D             E              A
All I wanna do is lay the blame where it belongs. 
D                  E            A
Listen, Betty, I'm singing your song.


OUTRO:
     A       D          A                   D
Now, listen, Betty, I'm singing you a song, about 
            E                  A
the drivers that have done you wrong..(Fade.)




A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
