Am G F (stop)
I stopped to fill my car up
Am G F (stop)
The car felt good that day
Am G F (stop)
I didn't know where I was going
[Am]But it felt good[G] for ch[F]ange
(same as above verse)
A five and a pocket full of silver
I paid the lady no change
And then it started to piss down
I started driving again
[C]And then I lo[C/B]oked up
[Am]And looked in the mirror [G]behind [F]me x2
[Am]A man around for[G]ty in the b[F]ack seat
[Am]Must have steppe[G]d in when I was e[F]mpty
[Am]So why's he [G]sat there just [F]waiting
[Am]Likely to [G]smash my [F]face in
(same as above verse)
He had a bag full of money
He said just drive me away
I didn't know where I was going
Yet it felt good to be strange
[C]And still I [C/B]look up
[Am]And look in the [G]mirror b[F]ehind me x2
Am Em F (stop)
Curiosity is over
Am G F (stop)
He stepped down from the car
Am G F (stop)
He pulled a gun from his jacket
Am G F (stop)
Said I was going to die
(same as above verse)
It gives me so much satisfaction
To watch you beg and cry
Well I just made up this story
To get your attention makes me smile
[C]I never lo[C/B]oked up
[Am]Or looked in the [G]mirror b[F]ehind me x2 (stop after 2nd time)
