Verse 2
[G]Nothin' ever happened round my home town
and I ain't the kind to just h[C]ang around[C] [G/B] [D]
I heard someone callin' my name one day
so I f[C]ollowed that voice down the lost highw[G]ay
Everybody told me you can't get far
on $37 and a J[C]ap guitar[C] [G/B] [D]
now I'm smokin into Texas with the hammer down
C G*
and a rockin' little combo from the guitar town.
Int (G*) |C |D |C G ||
[D]Hey pretty baby don't you know it ain't my fault
[C]Love to hear the steel belts h[G]ummin on the asphalt
[D]Wake up in the middle of the night in a truck stop
[C]Stumble in the restaurant, [D7]wonderin' why I don't stop
Verse 3
Well, I G[G]otta keep rockin while I still can
Got a two-pack habit and a [C]motel tan[C] [G/B] [D]
When my boots hit the boards I'm a brand new man
C C*
put my back to the risers and make my stand
[G]Hey pretty baby won't you hold me tight
I'm loadin' up and rollin' out of h[C]ere tonight[C] [G/B] [D]
One of these days I'm gonna settle down
C G*
and I'll take you back with me to the guitar town
