"Or you'll know what you daddy's gonna do"

Thought she had her bases covered
        E
Sneakin out to meet her lover
                                    A
With his lights off and drivin real slow
    B
Her daddy's out of town

So they threw the hammer down

At the sign of Paradise Road

[Verse]
F
Daddy finished early
    F
The trip was a whirl he
            F
He made his mind up
            F
To hurry on home
    F
The moon beamin down
        F
When he hit the edge of town
      C/G
Saw a shortcut he used to know
         F
He got a smile on his face
        F
When he thought about the place
         F                Bb
Where he took mamma long ago
C/G
For old time's sake
C/G
He stomped on the brake

Turned off on Paradise Road

      Gb
Eddie started gettin bolder
Gb
Pulled onto the shoulder
Gb
Hopin that they wouldn't be seen

Their heads were a-reelin
         Gb
From the passion they were feelin
       F#5
Didn't see the coming headlight beam
      Gb
Daddy thought they were stranded
      Gb
So he stopped to lend a hand

His eyes just couldn't believe
          F#5
There was Eddie and Jessie
