John Hiatt » Tennessee Plates 
I worked long on this tab and I’m pretty sure it’s correct. Play this terrific
 song from the “Slow Turning” album 
4X INTRO: EEEA / EEBE
C					F
I woke up in a hotel and I didn't know what to do
C				G	C
I turned the TV on and wrote a letter to you
		C				F
The news was talkin' 'bout a dragnet up on the interstate
		C			G		C
Said they were lookin' for a Cadillac with Tennessee plates 
INTRO: EEEA / EEBE
	C					F
Since I left California baby, things have gotten worse
	C			G		C
Seems the land of opportunity for me is just a curse
	C					F
Tell that judge in Bakersfield that my trial will have to wait
		C				G	C
Down here they're lookin' for a Cadillac with Tennessee plates 

	F
It was somewhere in Nevada, it was cold outside
	C
She was shiverin' in the dark, so I offered her a ride
	F
Three bank jobs later, four cars hot wired
	G
We crossed the Mississippi like an oil slick fire 
INTRO: EEEA / EEBE
	C						F
If they'd known what we was up to they wouldn't 'a let us in
	C			  G	 C
When we landed in Memphis like original sin
      C						F
Up Elvis Presley Boulevard to the Graceland gates
		C			G	   C
See we were lookin' for a Cadillac with Tennessee plates 
2X iNTRO: EEEA / EEBE
	      C							F
Well, there must have been a dozen of them parked in that garage
	   C				G	   C			
And there wasn't one Lincoln and there wasn't one Dodge
	C				F
And there wasn't one Japanese model or make
	C			G		C
Just pretty, pretty Cadillacs with Tennessee plates 

      F
She saw him singing once when she was seventeen
	C
And ever since that day she's been living in between
	F
I was never king of nothin' but this wild weekend
	G
Anyway he wouldn't care, hell he gave them to his friends + INSTR. A E (B E)
	C					C
Well this ain't no hotel I'm writin' you from / It's the Tennessee prison up at Brushy Mountain
	C			   F(build up)      C (stop)		AE   F C / G C
Where yours sincerely's doin' five to eight … / Stampin' out my time makin' Tennessee plates
