I Walk The Line (Revisited)  Rodney Crowell

I Walk the Line (revisited)
By Rodney Crowell
I'm back on board that 49 ford in 1956
Long before the sun came up [D] way out in the sticks
[G] The headlights showed a two-rut road
Way back up in the [Em] pines
[G] First time I heard  Johny Cash
[D]'Sing I Walk the [G] Line'

[G]I got my thrill behind the wheel upon my daddies lap
Grandpa rode co-pilot with a [D] flashlight and a map
[G] Cane pole out the window
It was in the summer [Em] time
[G] First time I heard [D] Johny Cash
Sing 'I Walk the [G] Line' [G7]

Chorus I
I keep a [C] close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my [G] eyes wide open all the time
I keep the [C] ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're [D7] mine
I walk the [G] line

[G]I never will forget that day,I know the time and place,
Sounded like the whole thing came right [D]down from outer space,
[G]I still can see those headlights and that dashboard in my[Em] mind,
[G]The first time I heard Johnny Cash [D]sing I walk the [G]line.[G7]

Chorus II

I find it [C] very very easy to be true,
I find myself [G] alone when each day's through,
Yes I'll admit [C] that I'm a fool for you,
Because you're [D]mine, I walk the [G]line

[G]All these long years later it's still music to my ears
I swear it sounds as good right now as [D] anything I hear
[G] I've seen the Mona Lisa
I've heard Shakespeare read real [Em] fine
[G] Just like hearing [D] Johny Cash
Sing 'I Walk the [G] Line' [G7]
Chorus III

As sure as [C] night is dark and day is light
I keep you [G] on my mind both day and night
And happi[C]ness that I've known proves that it's right
Because you're [D7] mine
I walk the [G] line
Because you're [D7] mine
I walk the [C] line [D] [G]
