Title: Drive

by Alan Jackson

B            F#

Was painted red, the stripe was white,

E

It was 18 feet from the bow to the stern light.

B                  F#

Second hand from a dealer in Atlanta,

E

I rode up with Daddy when he went there to get her.

B              F#

Put on a shine, put on the motor,

E

Built out of love, made for the water.

B                          F#

Ran her for years ‘til the transom got rotten,

E

A piece of my childhood that’ll never be forgotten. It was,

B           F#

Just an old plywood boat,

E

With a ’75 Johnson, with electric choke.

B                F#

A young boy, two hands on the wheel,

E

I can’t replace the way it made me feel,

B                      F#

And I would turn her sharp and I’d, make it whine,

E

He’d say, you can’t beat the way an old wood boat rides.

Abm                           Db

Just a little lake across the Alabama line,

E                 F#                 B     F#  E  F#

But I was king of the ocean, when daddy let me drive.

B                    F#

Just an old half-ton short bed Ford,

E

My uncle bought it new in ’64.

B                               F#

Daddy got it ridin’, ‘cause the engine was smokin’,

E

Couple of burnt valves and he had it goin’.

B                              F#

He’d let me drive her and we’d haul off a load,

E

Down a dirt strip where we’d dump trash, off of Thigpen Road.

B                                  F#

I’d sit up in the seat, and stretch my feet out to the pedals,

E

Smilin’ like a hero that just received his medal. It was,

B           F#

Just an old hand-me down Ford,

E

With 3-speed on the column, and a dent in the door.

B                F#

A young boy, two hands on the wheel,

E

I can’t replace the way it made me feel,

B                          F#

And I would press that clutch, and I’d keep it right,

E

And he’d say, a little slower son, you’re doin’ just fine.

Abm                   Db

Just a dirt road with trash on each side,

E             F#                 B

But I was Mario Andretti when daddy let me drive.

B                       F#

I’m grown up now, three daughters of my own.

E

I let ‘em drive my old jeep ‘cross the pasture at our home.

B                      F#

Maybe one day, they’ll reach back in their file,

E

And pull out that old memory, and think of me and smile, and say,

B                  F#

It was just an old worn out jeep,

E

With rusty old floorboards that were hot on my feet.

B                 F#

A young girl, two hands on the wheel,

E

I can’t replace the way it made me feel,

B                F#

And he’d say, turn it left and steer it right,

E

Straighten up girl now, you’re doin’ just fine.

Abm                          Db

Just a little valley, by the river where we’d ride,

E                  F#                 B

But I was high on a mountain, when Daddy let me drive.

F#                E      F#

When Daddy let me drive.

B     F#  E  F#

Oh he let me drive.

B                 F#

She’s just an old plywood boat,

E                                  B

With a ’75 Johnson, with electric choke….
