D                   Bm
I got the Chevy all shined up
D                        Bm
Paid a little more for a haircut
G                          
Ironed up a pearl snap, left that old ball cap
A                          A (let ring)
Gave myself a little extra smell good splash



  x      x       D                    Bm 
I did it for the girl, dancin' in the sunset
                  G                         A
To get to see her sippin' on Corona, little silhouette
                 D                     Bm
I did it for the moonlight, slow ride, slidin' over by my side
     G                        A                      D      
Been waiting on it all night kiss, I did it for the girl  



Instrumental: Same as intro (D and Bm part)


D                         Bm
I dialed her up some more George Strait
D                      Bm
Me and old George sang Marina Del Rey
G
There by the water's edge, big sky turnin' red
A                                A
That perfect night, she said she can't forget

                 D                    Bm
I did it for the girl, dancin' in the sunset
                  G                         A
To get to see her sippin' on Corona, little silhouette
                 D                     Bm
I did it for the moonlight, slow ride, slidin' over by my side
     G                        A                      D
Been waiting on it all night kiss, I did it for the girl


Solo: 

1st half is a slide guitar, so when I play this by myself acoustic, I shorten it to 
just the 2nd half. Sounds something like this:

                                                                 I did it for...

A|-0h2----2---------------------------2----0h2----------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

                  G
I did it for that long hair, fallin' down, layin' on her shoulders
      A
Those blue eyes want me to hold her


                 D                    Bm
I did it for the girl, dancin' in the sunset
                  G                         A
To get to see her sippin' on Corona, little silhouette
                 D                     Bm
I did it for the moonlight, slow ride, slidin' over by my side
     G                         A                      D
Been waiting on it all night kiss, 

                 D                    Bm
I did it for the girl, dancin' on the front porch
                G                                     A
Reachin' out to grab my shirt and pull me through the front door
                 D        
I did it for the midnight, candlelight
Bm                   G         A
Anything to make her mine, all mine


                 D       Bm
I did it for the girl
                 D       Bm  
I did it for the girl

Play intro a few times and fade out
