[D]Hey pretty baby don't you know it ain't my fault

I l[C]ove to hear the steel belts h[G]ummin' on the asphalt

[D]Wake up in the middle of the night in a truck stop

Stumble in the restaurant wonderin' why I don't stop

[G]Gotta keep rockin' why I still can

I gotta two pack habit and a [C]motel tan

[D]But when my boots hit the boards I'm a brand new man

[C]With my back to the riser I make my stand

(drums stop)

[G]Hey pretty baby won't you hold me tight

C C G D (no riff here)
We're loadin' up and rollin' out of here tonight

[D]One of these days I'm gonna settle down

[C]And take you back with me to the Guitar [G]Town
