Verse

G She was leaning long legged ss
C ||'neath a bottle cap sign -i
Em7 D Of a country store with a coke and a smile
G the coolest place to linger
C on an Arkansas day
Em7 D when she saw him passing by
G He said "I'll take you back to Texas"
C ||Said "my name is Ray"
Em7 D where the stars are bigger than the Hit Parade
G And she stopped dreamin' her dream
C and she started dreamin' his
Em7 D Traded in her childhood
Chorus
C D G She wore flowered dresses for him
C D G Rolled her hair, scrubbed her freckled skin
C D On the chance that they were goin' out tonight
G G/F# C Catch a show, maybe grab a bite
C D G and she looked real nice, She looked real nice
Verse Sometimes I think about my daddy and his old spice grin, Cleaned pressed shirts, and a farmers tan She never asked him questions So he never told her lies but I heard my mama cry some And I was sitting in the hallway on the night he left huggin my knees, holding my breath I never knew why but he was damn sure gone thought it was maybe my fault Chorus Verse Now the evening is just starting to chill a bit with the fireflies in flight over the trees and it Brings to mind the glider where she used to sit And count the headlights on the highway So I think of where you're goin' Where you are tonight What you might have seen, since I last saw those eyes. I know that I can't win, If I do not play But this whole thing scares me Chorus
C D Gand she looked real nice, She looked real nice
