My Many Hurried Southern Trips  Porter Wagoner

Parton/Wagoner
INTRO: D
[D]I drive for the bus lines to [A7]all points south I [D]drive
[G]Guess I've heard a [D]million stories from the folks that [A7]ride
Have your [G]tickets ready [A7]please, and don't for[G]get to check your [D]grip
And I'm leavin' on another one of my [A7]hurried southern [D]trips
CHORUS:
These [G]big wheels roll in the [A7]heat and the cold
And the [G]thunder and the lightning [D]whips
And the folks that [G]ride got a reason to [D]ride
On a [A7]hurried southern [D]trip
With tear filled eyes a young girl got onboard at Willow Springs
She was bearin' child and I didn't see a ring
I'm on my to Memphis she said thru tremblin' lips
At the unwed mother's home I'll end my hurried southern trip
CHORUS
(KEY CHANGE)
A [E]man stepped aboard in Memphis, said do [B7]you remember [E]me
[A]I rode here to [E]look for work in nineteen fifty-[B7]three
And I've [A]been in prison [B7]all these years 'cause [A]I made one bad [E]slip
And I took him home to Rogersville on a [B7]hurried southern [E]trip
CHORUS:
These [A]big wheels roll in the [B7]heat and the cold
And the [A]thunder and the lightning [E]whips
And the folks that [A]ride got a reason to [E]ride
On a [B7]hurried southern [E]trip
A soldier boy said hello Joe it's been a long long time
Do you still make a special at the Shannon County line
And it wasn't long 'til we were there to meet the folks he'd missed
Tears of joy filled every eye on that hurried southern trip
CHORUS
On a [B7]hurried southern [E]trip
On a [B7]hurried southern [E]trip
