John Hiatt » Tennessee Plates I worked long on this tab and Im pretty sure its correct. Play this terrific song from the Slow Turning album 4X INTRO: EEEA / EEBE E A I woke up in a hotel and I didn't know what to do E B E I turned the TV on and wrote a letter to you E A The news was talkin' 'bout a dragnet up on the interstate E B E Said they were lookin' for a Cadillac with Tennessee plates INTRO: EEEA / EEBE E A Since I left California baby, things have gotten worse E B E Seems the land of opportunity for me is just a curse E A Tell that judge in Bakersfield that my trial will have to wait E B E Down here they're lookin' for a Cadillac with Tennessee plates A It was somewhere in Nevada, it was cold outside E She was shiverin' in the dark, so I offered her a ride A Three bank jobs later, four cars hot wired B We crossed the Mississippi like an oil slick fire INTRO: EEEA / EEBE E A If they'd known what we was up to they wouldn't 'a let us in E B E When we landed in Memphis like original sin E A Up Elvis Presley Boulevard to the Graceland gates E B E See we were lookin' for a Cadillac with Tennessee plates 2X iNTRO: EEEA / EEBE E A Well, there must have been a dozen of them parked in that garage E B E And there wasn't one Lincoln and there wasn't one Dodge E A And there wasn't one Japanese model or make E B E Just pretty, pretty Cadillacs with Tennessee plates A She saw him singing once when she was seventeen E And ever since that day she's been living in between A I was never king of nothin' but this wild weekend B Anyway he wouldn't care, hell he gave them to his friends + INSTR. A E (B E) E E Well this ain't no hotel I'm writin' you from / It's the Tennessee prison up at Brushy Mountain E A(build up) E (stop) AE A E / B E Where yours sincerely's doin' five to eight / Stampin' out my time makin' Tennessee plates
