  [D]-- Your daddy was mad as hell.
  [Bm]-- He was mad at me and you when he
  [G]Tied that chain to the front of my car and pulled me
  [Em]Out of that ditch that I [G]slid into.

  [D]-- Don't know what his problem is,
  [Bm]-- Why he keeps sending me away.  Don't know
  [G]Why I put up with this shit when you
  [Em]Don't put out and Zip [G]City's so far a-
  [D]way.   [Dsus2]
  [--]       [--]                            

(Repeat Intro)


  [D]-- Your daddy is a deacon down at the
  [Bm]Salem Church of Christ, and he
  [G]Makes good money as long as Reynolds
  [Em]Wrap keeps everything [G]wrapped up tight.

  [D]-- Your mama's as good a wife and
  [Bm]Mama as she can be, and your
  [G]Sister keeps puttin' that sweet stuff on every-
  [Em]body in town but [G]me.
  [A]-- Your brother was the first-born, got ten
  [Bm]Fingers and ten toes, And it's a
  [G]Damn good thing cause he needs all twenty just to
  [Em]Keep the closet door

  [G](Repeat[D] Intro)


  [Em]-- Maybe it's the twenty-six mile
  [G]Drive from Zip City to Colbert
  [D]Heights that keeps my mind clean,
  [A]Gets me through the night.

  [Em]-- Or maybe you're just a desti-
  [G]nation, a place for me to go that
  [D]Keeps me from having to deal with my
  [A]Seventeen-year-old mind all a-
  [Em]lone. So keep your drawers on, girl,
  [G]It ain't worth the fight.  By the
  [D]Time you drop them I'll be gone and you'll
  [A]Be right where they fall the rest of your
Em *** (see INTERLUDE below)


(Repeat Intro, beat 1 is 'life' from above)
(Final "A" &-4-& is leading "you say you're" lyric below)


  [A]You say you're

Tired of me taking you for
  [G]Granted, Waiting up 'till the last
  [D]Minute to call you up and see
  [A]What you want to do.  But you're

  [Em]Only fifteen, girl, you ain't
  [G]Got no secretary. And "For
  [D]Granted" is a mighty big word for a
  [A]Country girl like you. I think that's
  [Em]Just your Daddy talking, Cause he
  [G]Knows that blood red carpet down at the
  [D]Salem Church of Christ ain't gonna
  [A]ever see no wedding between
Em *** (see INTERLUDE below)
me and you.


(Repeat Intro, beats 1/2 are 'me and you' from above)


  Zip [D]City it's a good thing that they
  [Bm]Built the wall around you, Zip
  [G]Up to Tennessee then zip right
  [Em]Down to Ala-[G]bama.  I got

  [D]-- 350 heads on a
  [Bm]-- 305 engine, I get
  [G]ten miles to the gallon, I ain't
  [Em]got no good in-[G]tentions.
