Intro: D / G / D / G /
Unc[D]le Slim had [Dsus2]let her know she [A]couldn't ride that h[G]orse.
He[D] was the one[Dsus2] that was only meant for [G]men.[(G)]
She w[Gm]aited around till way after [Em]dark,
Rode[G] that horse with all her he[D]art.
And in the n[D]ight how she ro[A]de.
So[G]mehow she always [D]knew she had t[F#m]he strength insid[G]e.
An[Em]d even if she f[D]ell, she'd survi[A]ve.[(A)]
In spite of all th[G]e tears she may c[D]ry,
This is how she h[G]as to live her life.[D]
As hard as it ma[G]y be she has to find [A]out for [D]herself.[(D)]
Mama[D] and daddy t[Dsus2]old her from the st[A]art he was no g[G]ood.
The[D]y'd seen how h[Dsus2]e treated the other [G]girls.[(G)]
Sh[Gm]e waited around till the sun went[Em] down,
Sl[G]ipped out the house not makin' a[D] sound.
And in the nigh[D]t oh how they [A]drove.
** Repeat Chorus **
It w[G]as fifteen years to the [F#m]day he became a s[Bm]tranger in her e[G]yes
In [Em]the coldest words of a[D]nger
He said without [G]me you won't sur[A]vive.
There's a[D] suitcase in [Dsus2]the closet she had pack[A]ed six months a[G]go.
She don[D]'t leave a n[Dsus2]ote that's not her[G] style.[(G)]
So she[Gm] waited around till way afte[Em]r dark,
Lef[G]t that man who broke her h[D]eart.
Now she's gone[D], oh she's [A]gone.
** Repeat Chorus to end.
