1. It was seven hundred fence posts from your place to ours,

      B7                                       A

    neither one of us was old enough to drive a car.

       E

    Sometimes it was rainin', sometimes it would shine,

     B7                                                  A

    we wore out that gravel road between your house and mine.

 

 E                                        A                          E

I'd start walkin' your way, you'd start walkin' mine,

            E                                           B7

we’d meet in the middle 'neath that old Georgia pine.

           E                                                   A              E

We'd gain a lot of ground, ’cause we'd both give a little,

  E                                                 B7             A

ain't no road too long when we meet in the middle.     + E - A - E

2. It's been seven years tomorrow since we said our vows,

     B7                                         A

    under that old pine tree you ought to say it now.

       E

    Standing in the backyard, reminding me and you,

    B7                                                   A

    if we don't see eye to eye there's something we can do.

 

 E                                        A                          E

I'd start walkin' your way, you'd start walkin' mine,

            E                                           B7

we’d meet in the middle 'neath that old Georgia pine.

           E                                                   A              E

We'd gain a lot of ground, ’cause we'd both give a little,

  E                                                 B7            C#m

ain't no road too long when we meet in the middle.     

 

                 A                          B7

+  Babe, I love the way we work it out,

                      B7   - - - - - - - -

    that's what love is all about !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 E                                        A                          E

I'd start walkin' your way, you'd start walkin' mine,

            E                                           B7

we’d meet in the middle 'neath that old Georgia pine.
