Zip City  Drive-By Truckers

Drive-By-Truckers - Zip City
Intro C Am C
Dm F C G X3
[C]Your Daddy was mad as hell
[Am]He was mad at me and you
As he [F]tied that chain to the front of my car and
pulled me [Dm]out of that ditch that we slid into
[C]Don't know what his problem is
[Am]Why he keeps dragging you away
Don't [F]know why I put up with this s**t
When you [Dm]don't put out and Zip City's so far [C]away
Repeat Intro
Your [C]Daddy is a deacon down at the [Am]Salem Church of Christ
And He [F]makes good money as long as Reynolds [Dm]Wrap keeps everything wrapped up tight
[C]Your Mama's as good a wife and [Am]Mama as she can be
And your S[F]ister's puttin' that sweet stuff on ever[Dm]ybody in town but me
Your B[G]rother was the first-born, got ten f[Am]ingers and ten toes
And it's a d[F]amn good thing cause He needs all twenty to [Dm]keep the closet door closed
Repeat Intro
[Dm]Maybe it's the twenty-six mile [F]drive from Zip City to Colbert [C]Heights
Keeps my mind clean [G]Gets me through the night
[Dm]Maybe you're just a destin[F]ation, a place for me to go
A way to [C]keep from having to deal with my s[G]eventeen-year-old mind all al[Dm]one
Keep your drawers on, girl, [F]it ain't worth the fight
By the t[C]ime you drop them I'll be gone
And [G]you'll be right where they fall the rest of your [Dm]life
Repeat Intro
You say you're [Dm]tired of me taking you for g[F]ranted
Waiting' up till the last [C]minute to call you up and see what you w[G]ant to do
Well you're[Dm] only fifteen, girl, you ain't got [F]no secretary
And for g[C]ranted is a mighty big word for a co[G]untry girl like you
[Dm]You know it's just your Daddy talking
[F]Cause He knows that blood red carpet at the [C]Salem Church of Christ
Ain't gonna [G]ever see no wedding between me and [Dm]you
Repeat Intro
[C]Zip City it's a good thing that they [Am]built a wall around you
[F]Zip up to Tennessee then zip back d[Dm]own to Alabama
I got [C]350 heads on a 305 [Am]engine
I get [F]ten miles to the gallon
I ain't [Dm]got no good intentions[C]
