Red Ragtop  Tim McGraw

Intro: G, G, Am, Am
[G]I was twenty and [G]she was eighteen. We were [Am]just about as wild as [Am]we were
green in the [G]ways of the world[G] [Am] [Am]
She [G]picked me up in that [G]red ragtop. We were [Am]free of the folks and [Am]hiding
from the cops on a [G]summer night[G], running all the [Am]red lights[Am]
We'd [G]park way out in a [G]clearing in a grove
And the [Am]night was as hot as a [Am]coal-burning stove
We were [G]cooking with gas[G]. knew it [Am]had to last[Am]
In the back of that [C]red [G]rag[Am]top[Am]
She said [C]please [G]don't [Am]stop[Am] [Am] [Am]
Well the [G]very first time her [G]mother met me
Her [Am]green-eyed girl had been a [Am]mother-to-be for [G]two weeks[G] [Am] [Am]
I was [G]out of job and [G]she was in school
And [Am]life was fast and the [Am]world was cruel
We were [G]young and wild[G]. We decided not to [Am]have the child[Am]
So we [G]did what we did and we [G]tried to forget
And we [Am]swore up and down there would [Am]be no regrets
In the [G]morning light,[G] but on the way [Am]home that night[Am]
On the back of that [C]red [G]rag[Am]top[Am]
She said [C]please [G]don't s[Am]top [Am]loving [C]me[G] [Am] [Am]
We took [C]one more [G]trip aro[Am]und the [Am]sun
But it was [C]all make [G]believe in the [Am]end[Am]
And no I [C]can't say [G]where she [Am]is tod[Am]ay
I can't [C]remember who I [G]was back [Am]then[Am] [C] [C] [Am] [Am]
[G] [G] [Am] [Am]  
Well you [G]do what you do and you [G]pay for your sins
And there's [Am]no such thing as what [Am]might have been
That's a [G]waste of time[G], Drive you [Am]out of your mind[Am]
I was [G]stopped at a red light [G]just yesterday
Bes[Am]ide a young girl in a [Am]cabriolet
And her [G]eyes were green[G]. And I was in an [Am]old scene[Am]
I was back in that [C]red [G]rag[Am]top[Am]
On the [C]day [G]she [Am]stopp[Am]ed loving me
[C] [G] [Am] [Am]  
I was back in that [C]red [G]rag[Am]top
On the [C]day [G]she [Am]stoppe[Am]d loving me
Repeat G G Am Am out
