[Verse 1]
G
I was twenty and she was eighteen 
C                                              G                    C
We were just about as wild as we were green in the ways of the world
          G
She'd pick me up in that red ragtop
         C
we were free of the folks and hiding from the cops
         G                        Cadd9
on a summer night, runnin all the red lights 
         G
so we'd park way out in a clearing in a grove 
          C
and the night was as hot as a coal burnin stove 
          G
we were cookin with gas, 
        Cadd9
oh it had to last

[Chorus]
                    C   G   Am
in the back of that red rag top
         C        G     Am                                    
she said please dont stop

[Verse 2]
          G
well the very first time her mother met me
    C                                         G          C
her green eyed girl had been a mother to be for two weeks 
         G
i was out of a job and she was in school
C
life was fast and the world was cruel 
        G
we were young and wild,
                  C
we decided not to have a child 
         G
so we did what we did and we tried to forget
      C                                                  G
and we swore up and down there would be no regrets in the morning light 
              Cadd9
but on the way home that night 

[Chorus 2]
                    C   G    Am
on the back of that red rag top 
             C  G    Am         G                Cadd9
she said please dont stop loving me 

[Verse 3]
        C        G      Am        G
we took one more trip around the sun 
           C         G              Am
and it was all make believe in the end 
    C          G         Am G
no i cant say where she is today 
       Am             G        Am
i cant remember who i was back then 
             G
well you do what you do 
                                    C
and you pay for your sins and theres no such thing as what might have been 
           G
thats a waste of time, 
           C
drive you out of your mind 
         G                                                       C
i was stopped at a red light just yesterday beside a young girl in a cabriolet 
        G
and her eyes were green 
                Cadd9
and i was in an old scene 

[Outro]
                  C    G   Am
i was back in that red rag top 
       C    G   Am           G            Cadd9
on the day she stopped lovin me 
                   C   G    Am
i was back in that red rag top 
       C    G  Am            G
on the day she stopped lovin me
