Neon Rainbow  Alan Jackson

[G]Daddy won a radio
He tu[C]ned it to a country show
I was ro[D]ckin in the cradle to the c[C]ryin' of a steel gui[D]tar.
[G]Mama used to sing to me
She ta[C]ught me that sweet harmony
Now she wo[D]rries 'cause she never thought I e[C]ver really take it this f[G]ar
a si[D]ngin' in the bars and

Chorus:
C[G]hasin' that neon rainbow,
L[C]iving that honkytonk [G]dream
Cause all I've e[D]ver wa[Em]nted is to p[A7]ick this guitar and s[D]ing
[C]Just tryin' to be some[G]body
Just wa[C]nna be heard and s[A7]een
Im' ch[C]asin that [D]neon r[G]ainb[C]ow
[A7]Livin' that [D]honky tonk dr[G]eam.[C]   [D7]    [G]   [C]   [A7]    [D7]    [G]

[G]An atlas and a coffee cup
Five p[C]ickers and an old Dodge truck
[D]Headin' down to Houston for a s[C]how on Saturday nig[D]ht.
[G]Well this overhead is killin me,
Half th[C]e time I sing for free.
But when the cr[D]owd's into it,Lord,it make[C]s this thing I'm doin' seem r[G]ight,
Sta[D]ndin' in the spotlight.

Last verse and final chorus
Key Change up one step

[A]Daddy won a radio.
He won [D]it thirty years ago.
He said, S[E]on, I just know we're gonna h[D]ear you singin' on it some[E]day.
[A]Well, I made it up to Music Row,
But Lor[D]dy, don't the wheels turn slow.
Still I wo[E]uldn't trade a minute, I w[D]ouldn't have it any other w[E]ay.
[E]Just show me to the stage.

C[A]hasin' that neon rainbow,
L[D]iving that honkytonk [A]dream
Cause al[E]l I've ever wa[A]nted is to [B7]pick this guitar and [E]sing

Just wa[D]nna be heard and s[B7]een

[B7]Livin' that [E]honky tonk dr[A]eam.
