Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Something Like That  Tim McGraw


It was [E]Labor Day weekend I was [D] seventeen,

I bought a coke and some gasoline,
[E] And I drove [D]out to the county [A]fair. [B]
[E]When I saw her for the [D]first time
She was [A]standing there in the ticket line,
[E] And it all [D]started right then and [A]there. [B]
Ohh a [A]sailor sky made a [B]perfect sunset,
[A]And that's a day I'll [B]never forget.


I had a [E]bbq stain on my [B]white t-shirt,
She was [A]killing me in that [B]mini skirt.
[E]Skipping rocks on the [B]river by the railroad [Dbm]tracks[B].  [A]   [B]
She had a [E]suntan line and [B]red lipstick,
I [F#m]worked so [Abm]hard for [A]that first [B]kiss,
And a[Dbm] heart [B]don't for[A]get [B]something like [E]that.[D]   [A]   [Dbm]     [B]

Verse 2

It was [E]five years later on a [D]southbound plane,
I was [A]headed down to New Orleans.
[E]To meet some friends of [D]mine for Mardi [A]Gras.[B]
[E]When I heard a [D]voice from the past,
[A]Coming from a few rows back,
And when I [E]looked I couldn't be[D]lieve just what I [A]saw. [B]
She said "[A]I bet you don't re[B]member me."
And I said[A] "Only every other [B]memory".


E D A Dbm B (repeat x 2)

[F#m]Like an old photograph time can [E]make a feeling fade,
But the [A]memory of the first love [B]never fades away.


[E]      [D]      [A]      [Dbm]       [B]
