 C
 Well, ‘way down yonder on the Chattahoochee
 GC
it gets hotter than a hoochie-coochie.
 C
 We laid rubber on the Georgia asphalt.
 CGC
 We got a little crazy, but we never got caught.

Chorus
 F
 Down by the river on a Friday night,
 C
 pyramid of cans in the pale moonlight,
 F
 talkin' 'bout cars and dreamin' 'bout women.
 D7G
 Never had a plan; just-a livin' for the minute.

Verse 2
 C
 Yeah, ‘way down yonder on the Chattahoochee;
 G
never knew how much that muddy water meant to me,
 C
 but I learned how to swim and I learned who I was;
 G
A lot about living and a little 'bout love.

Instrumental Break (like Intro, but without first two measures)

Verse 3
Well, we fogged up the windows in my old Chevy;
I was willin' but she wasn't ready.
So I settled for a burger and a grape Snocone.
I dropped her off early but, I didn't go home.

Chorus

Instrumental Break (Fiddle, chords like chorus)

A lot about living and a little 'bout love

Instrumental outro (like Intro)
