G ~ ~
1. There's a quiet time in the early dawn,
before the mornin' paper, before the coffee's on.
When there ain't much movin' in the world outside,
oh, I'd love to take a mornin' ride.
2. My baby knows it's the time we share,
she wakes me gently, brushes back her hair.
And she moves into my arms, sweet and slow,
C D G
I can't wait to get up and go.
Gonna take my baby on a mornin' ride,
when the sun comes slippin' 'round the mountainside,
F - C G
'bout an hou...r, maybe two.
F C D
Ain't nothin' me and her would rather do
than see the green grass glist'nin' in the mornin' dew,
while the world is still damn spankin' new.
C - G C
Oh, I know how beautiful the day will be,
Em D G
when she takes a mornin' ride with me.
(orig. moves up a full note to capo 2nd here)
2. And when we get back, it will feel so right
to just lay back and linger in the mornin' light.
Then she'll smile at me, thinkin' where we've been,
C D G
wantin' me to take her again.
