                   A  - D                        A         - D

1. I gave a girl       a ride in my wagon,

                         A   - D                         A      - D

    she crawled in          and took control.

                    A       - D                               A             - D

    She was tired         as her mind was dragging,

                 A                               D                         A

    I said, get some sleep and dream of rock and roll.

 

A                                                  E

    ‘Cause like a picture she was laying there,

                               D                 - A

moonlight dancing off her hair.

                                           E

She woke up and took me by the hand,

                                               B7

she’s gonna love me in my chevy van,

          D          E             A

and that’s all right with me.

 

+  A - D - A - D

 

                      A       - D                                 A         - D

2. Her young face          was like that of an angel,

                    A     - D                                A        - D

    her long legs         were tanned and brown.

                 A       - D                               A             - D

    Better keep          your eyes on the road, son,

                 A     D                A

    better slow this vehicle down.

3. I put her out        in a town that was so small

                        A        D                         A        - D

    you could throw a rock from end to end.

                         A               - D                               A             - D

    A dirt road main street,        she walked off in bare feet,

                 A                        D                          A

    it’s a shame I won't be passing through again.

 

A                                                  E

    ‘Cause like a picture she was laying there,

                               D                 - A

moonlight dancing off her hair.

                                           E

She woke up and took me by the hand,

                                    B7

we made love in my chevy van,

          D          E             A

and that’s all right with me.
