David Allen Coe – The Ride chords
Tim McGraw adds this to the end of "Real Good Man' sometimes. Let chords ring with repeated lines in chorus. I like to carry the last 'ride' in final chorus through the chord progression D C G DDI was thumbing my way back from MontgomeryFwith my guitar on my backGwhen a man pulled up beside meDin an antique CadillacDHe was dressed like 1950Fhalf drunk and hollowed eyedGsaid its a long walk back to NashvilleDwould you like a ride sonDSo I jumped into the front seatFand he turned on the radioGand the sad songs coming out those speakersDwas a solid country goldDWell I noticed the stranger was a ghost white paleFwhen he asked me for a lightGthen I knew there was something strangeD about this ridechorus:CHe said mister can you make folksGcry when you play andDsingDhave you paid your duescan you moan the bluesAcan you bend those guitar stringsCAnd son can you make folksGfeel what you feelDinside....Ccuz if your big star boundGlet me warn you its aDlong hard rideC (one stroke) if your big star bound G (one stroke) let me warn you its aDlong hard rideD C G D verse 2DWell he cried just south of NashvilleFand he turned that car aroundGsaid this is where you get out boyDcuz i'm heading on back to alabamDSo I jumped outa that ole CadillacFand said mister many thanksGhe said you don't have to call mister, misterDthe whole world calls me HANKChorus repeat last line of chorus a third time (first tab posted...feel free to embellish or criticize)
