Jayton And Jill Zane Williams
Drop D Tuning
Capo on 2
The G chord that he plays looks like this: DADGBE and the Em chord looks like this: DADGBE
Of course you can just play in regular tuning and keep the chords in their regular form, but this is how he
plays it live.
Also, in live versions, at the last Bm of every chorus, he does a pull off and a hammer on on the B string. He
doesn't do it in the album version, but I think it sounds cool anyways.
Listen to a live version to find the timing.
[D]Jayton had a job for seven bucks an hour?
At the fillin' station by the water tower
Just checkin' oil and fixin' flats?
T[G]he kind of kid most folks just look past[D]
[D]Jill was the local preacher's kid gone wild?
Most the time her daddy couldn't stand his own child?
H[A]e'd quote the scripture with an angry shout?
And l[G]ist her all the reasons she would never turn ou[D]t?
She was dr[G]unk one night on the f[D]ourth of July?
P[A]arked in a pasture with an [Bm]out-of-town guy?
[G]He got mad when sh[D]e said no?
And he t[Em]ore her Sunday dr[G]ess?
She was w[G]anderin' alone on a c[D]ounty road?
When the l[A]ights came over the h[Bm]ill?
Th[G]at was the moment when J[A]ayton met J[D]ill
H[D]e said hey, do you need a ride home?
She said go away, leave me alone?
But h[A]e noticed the bruise and the frightened tears?
Said there [G]ain't no way in Hell I'm leavin' you out h[D]ere
It was r[D]ainin' a little and fixin' to storm?
And his mustang jacket looked dry and warm
So she le[A]t him wrap it 'round her and she climbed inside?
Sa[G]yin' OK I guess thanks for the ride[D]
At an [G]all-night diner they w[D]aited out the storm?
[A]Ended up talking right [Bm]up 'til dawn?
B[G]y the time he dropped her off s[D]afe at home?
Neither[Em] one felt so al[G]one
Tw[G]o lost souls f[D]ound a connection
that's bl[A]essin' both of them s[Bm]till?
[G]On that night when J[A]ayton met J[D]ill
[G] [D] [A] [Bm] [G] [D] [Em] [G]
And w[G]hat Jayton never told her ab[D]out that night
? A Bm
Is how he'd taken his dad's old 45?
He'd been dri[G]vin' 'round thinkin' how[D] no one would miss him
If h[Em]e just ended it [G]all?
[G]He couldn't see past h[D]is own pain?
'Til he s[A]aw a pretty girl walkin' [Bm]in the rain?
Th[G]ank God he made it over that hill
? G A D
That was the moment when Jayton met Jill?
Ending: G A D
