Bobby Bare – The Jogger chords

Chords
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
GWell I've been a trucker now for twenty years
CFrom the Charleston coast to the Jersey piers
D7 GAnd sharin' the road with the race car nuts and loggers
CSunday drivers scouts on hikes Hells Angels on Harley bikes
D7 GI never met a roader I didn't like cept them joggers
[Verse 2]
GOne day I'm rollin' down 1 0 1
CI got 18 wheels and a fourteen ton
D7 GRadio playin' a good ol' country rocker
The day was surely a trucker's dream
CThe sky was sunny and the air was clean
D7 GWhen up ahead on the road I seen a skinny sweatin' jogger
[Verse 3]
GWell he was dressed like they do in baby blue
CWith shortie shorts and a headband too
D7 GI yelled Sweetie I bet that you are the hit of the men's room locker
Well I'm a runnin' late with an overload
CSo get your Adidas off a this road
D7 GI'm LA bound and I don't slow down for dead raccoons or joggers
[Verse 4]
GWell without breakin' stride or losin' poise
CHe says you and that rig sure make some noise
D7 GI can't talk now I'm racin' against the clocker
But it's just nine miles to Forkers Leap
CAnd if you ain't afraid to race that heap
D7 GWe'll see how that ol' rig holds up against a super jogger
[Verse 5]
GRace I must be hearin' wrong
CThe boy's been runnin' in the sun too long
D7 GThe only place he's a racin' to is a doctor
But before I could say hey thank ya no
CThat fool yells ready get set go
D7 GAnd the race is on and we're off and gone me and that maniac jogger
[Verse 6]
GWell now I could'a left him far behind
CBut I played with him like a fish on a line
D7 GAnd I stayed about a half a mile behind that sucker
Then I pushed her up to forty-five
CAnd he sees me comin' and he starts to fly
D7So I pushed her to sixty and shift to high
GAnd finally catch that jogger and it wasn't easy
[Verse 7]
GNow I'm doin' eighty and I turned to check
CAnd he's stayin' right with me neck in neck
D7 GHis hearts a thumpin' like an engine goin' bocka bocka bocka
Then he said I hope you're set
CCause I ain't shifted into second yet
D7 GThen he unwinds and leaves me behind eaten the dust of a jogger
[Verse 8]
GThen I see him a joggin' up into the sky
CAnd he yells hey thanks for the exercise
D7 GI hope that losin' the race was not too shockin'
GYa see my dad says heaven's no place to run
CI try to be an obedient son
D7 GSo I come down to earth to do my joggin'
[Verse 9]
GWell that's the story take it or leave it
CMy trucker buddies they believe it
D7 GSo do those race car nuts and Harley hoggers
Now I'm still drivin' much the same
CCept I don't call nobody names
D7 GAnd I tip my hat each time I pass one of them good old joggers
[Outro]
GAnd I say hey good buddy can I get ya sumpin
CHow bout a little Gatorade here
D7 GNaw that's alright I got plenty a-time
