INTRO
| D | Am | G | D |
| D | Am | G | D |
| D | Am | G | D |

              D                           Am
Well, she was standing by the highway
       G                       D
In her boots and silver spurs
      D 
Gonna hitchhike to the yellow moon
       G                         D
When a Cadillac stopped for her
               D                           Am
And she said, "Hey, nice to meet you, 
G                      D
Are you goin' my way?"
D                              Am
Yeah, that's when it happened
    G                           D
The world caught fire that day

        C           G   D
And she went down   -   swingin'
          C           G   D
Yeah, she went down   -   swingin'

              D                Am
Well, she was over twenty-one
   G                      D
In trouble with the law
       D                     Am
And it didn't faze her none
    G                         D
She called her mother-in-law
           D                    Am
And said I need a little money
  G                           D
I knew I could count on you
D                           Am
After that night in Vegas
        G                           D
And the hell that we went through

   C           G   D
We went down   -   swingin' - like Benny Goodman
         C           G   D
Yeah, we went down   -   swingin'

D                           Am
Moonlight on the interstate
         G                         D
She was 'cross the Georgia line
       D                             Am 
Looked out the window feeling great
         G                      D
Yeah, it had to come in time
        D                           Am
And she said I'm never goin' back
    G                         D
She said at last I'm free
D                           Am
I wish ma could see me now, 
      G                    D
She’d be so proud of me

    C           G   D
She went down   -   swingin’ - like Glenn Miller
          C           G   D
Yeah, she went down   -   swingin’ - like Tommy Dorsey
          C           G   D
Yeah, she went down   -   swingin’ - like Sammy Davis
    C           G   D
She went down   -   swingin’ - like Sonny Liston
