The Byrds    Truck Stop Girl  written by  Lowell George/Bill Payne

Record in key of Ab

     C           G               C                 G
 His tail lights flickered as he pulled  up to the truck stop
    C                  Em          D
The same old crowd was hanging out again tonight
        C          G            Am   Bm    C        D
He said fill up my tank while I go   check my       load
                            C        G
It feels like it's shifting all around
   C               G          G/F#   Em          C      G          D
He was the kind of man to  do all he could above all he had integrity
     C         D              C        G      D           C
But  he was so young and on a ten city run in love with a truck stop
   C          G          C       G
As he went inside he was merrily greeted
       C         Em             D
By the girl with whom he was in love
    C          G              Am  Bm C        D
She held out a glass and said have            another
                      C      G^?
This is the last time we can meet
         C             G               G/F#   Em
With her hair piled up high and a look in her eye
            C       G                   D
That would turn any good man's blood to wine
C                  D   C                  G
All his eyes could see all his eyes could see
         D           C                    G
Were the stares from all those around him
           G/F#   Em      C                G
He ran out to the lot and climbed into his rig
                      C          G
And drive off without tightening down
         C        G            G/F#   Em
It was a terrible thing to see what remained
        C             G         D
Of that rig that poor Danny was in
C      D              C        G      D           C             G
He was young and on a ten city run in love with a truck stop girl

I think the chords are right, but IMO either transpose to D (no capo) or it needs a capo on 1 or 2 (both sound good to me)
