Capo 1st Fret
Intro: C F Am G
"Just take off your clothes and I'll drive you home," I said
Knowing she never could pass on a dare.
And knowing it sounded more desperate than reckless or bold
I just put it out there cold, too far gone to care.
My eyes on the road, she slid herself down in the seat
And a vision of paradise swung into view.
Across those five lanes not one driver glanced over to see
The beauty known only to me, and a big rig or two.

On that freeway the light was receding
C G F
Her beauty, a sight so misleading
C G F G
I failed to hear the heart that was beating alone
C F Am G
On the naked ride home.
With the trace of a smile and that defiant look in her eye
She hurtled through space in a world of her own.
And turning aside my caress spoke of all that she'd not yet done
As if I was the doubting one, who would have to be shown.

She gathered her clothes and ran through the yard in the dark
Up onto the porch like a flash, then inside.
Then one room at a time I watched every light in our house come on
Like the truth that would eventually dawn, forcing me to decide.
C F Am G......on out.
