(verse)
[E]Becky was the beauty from south Alabama,
Her [C]daddy had a heart like a nine pound hammer,
I t[D]hink he even did a little time in the slammer,
[A]What was I thinkin'
(verse 2)
[E]She snuck out one night and met me by the front gate,
Her [C]daddy came out a wavin' that twelve guage,
we [D]tore out of the drive, he peppered my tailgate,
[A]What was I thinkin'
(bridge)
[B]Oh I knew there'd be hell to pay,
[B]But that crossed my mind a little too late,
(chorus)
Cause I was [E]thinkin' 'bout a [D]little white [A]tank top,
[G]Sittin' right [E]there in the m[D]iddle by m[A]e,
I was [E]thinkin' 'bout a [D]long kiss,
[A]Man I just gotta g[G]et,
[E]Goin' where the [D]night might l[A]ead,
[B]I know what I was feelin'[D] [-] [D] [-] [A] [-] [A]
But, what was I thinkin[E]'[-] [C] [-] [D-A] [-] [D-A]
(verse 3)
By the county line, the cop's were nippin' on our heels
Pulled off the road, kicked it in four-wheel
Shut off the lights, tore through a corn field
What was I thinkin'
(verse 4)
Out the the other side, she was hollerin' "faster"
Took a dirt road, had the radio blastin'
Hit the honky tonk for a little close dancin'
What was I thinkin'
(bridge)
Oh, I knew there'd be hell to pay
But, that crossed my mind a little too late
(chorus)
Cause I was thinkin' 'bout a little white tank top
Sittin' right there in the middle by me
I was thinkin' 'bout a long kiss
Man I just gotta get
Goin' where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin'
But, what was I thinkin
 
 (lead chords F# - A - E - F# - C - D - E)

(verse 5)
When a mountain of a man with a 'Born To Kill' tattoo
Tried to cut in, I knocked out his front tooth
Ran outside, hood-slidin' like Bo Duke
What was I thinkin'
(verse 6)
Finally got her home at half past too late,
Her daddy, in a lawn chair, sittin' on the driveway
Put it in park, and he started my way
What was I thinkin'
[G]Oh...what was I thinkin'
[C]What was I thinkin'
Then she gave a[D#9+/5+] come-and-[D#9+/5+]get-me gr[D#9+/5+]in
[D#9+/5+]Like a bullet, we were gone ag[D#9+/5+]ain
(chorus)
Cause I was [E]thinkin' 'bout a [D]little white [A]tank top,
[G]Sittin' right [E]there in the m[D]iddle by m[A]e,
I was [E]thinkin' 'bout a [D]long kiss,
[A]Man I just gotta [G]get,
[E]Goin' where the [D]night might l[A]ead,
