Maggie Creek Road  Reba McEntire

CAPO: 3rd Fret
INTRO: Em Am Em D Em Am Em D
Mama [C]stood on the front porch ringing her hands[Em]
Watched the [C]tail lights fading on his black Trans Am[Em]
With her [C]precious little baby taking off inside[Em]
[C]Staring at him with stars in her eyes[Em]
She tried to [C]tell her, but the girl might as well have been deaf[Em]
She [C]wasn't gonna listen to a word she said[Em]
CHORUS:
Don't go down [G]Maggie Creek [Am]Road [Em]
With a boy [C]looking like [D]that [Em]
He'll tell ya things that you [G]wanna [Am]hear[Em]
And there'll be no [C]turning [D]back[Em]
There's an oak tree [G]down by the [Am]lake [Em]
In the shade where the [C]wild [D]flowers grow [Em]
What'll happen only [G]heaven [Am]knows
So [C]don't go [B7]down Maggie Creek [Em]Road
INSTRUMENTAL: Am Em D Em Am Em D
Was a [C]still black night as dark as coal[Em]
No[C]body heard her when she said 'No'[Em]
She [C]kicked and screamed and got free somehow[Em]
Tore her [C]dress on the door when he pushed her out[Em]
She walked [C]thirteen miles on the gravel road[Em]
With [C]tears in her eyes, twenty years ago[Em]
CHORUS:
Don't go down [G]Maggie Creek [Am]Road [Em]
With a boy [C]looking like [D]that [Em]
He'll tell ya things that you [G]wanna [Am]hear[Em]
And there'll be no [C]turning [D]back[Em]
There's an oak tree [G]down by the [Am]lake [Em]
In the shade where the [C]wild [D]flowers grow [Em]
What'll happen only [G]heaven [Am]knows
So [C]don't go [B7]down Maggie Creek [Em]Road
INSTRUMENTAL: D C D C B
[Em] [Am] [Em] [D] [Em] [Am] [Em] [D] 
[C]Somehow mama's always know [Em]
'Cause they [C]should have been home an hour ago[Em]
When [C]she pulled up, it was just going down [Em]
She turned her [C]headlights off, didn't make a sound [Em]
She heard her [C]baby crying 'No', but he wouldn't stop [Em]
Her [C]heart went cold and her blood ran hot [Em]
With a [C]pistol in her hand, she opened his door[Em]
You don't [C]wanna see mama go to war[Em]
CHORUS:
Don't go down [G]Maggie Creek [Am]Road [Em]
With a boy [C]looking like [D]that [Em]
He'll tell ya things that you [G]wanna [Am]hear[Em]
And there'll be no [C]turning [D]back[Em]
There's an oak tree [G]down by the [Am]lake [Em]
In the shade where the [C]wild [D]flowers grow [Em]
What'll happen only [G]heaven [Am]knows
So [C]don't go [B7]down, I say, [C]don't go [B7]down
