Intro: Gb   Abm   Ebm Db B

Gb
Ripped Jeans, only drinks whiskey 
Abm
I find him by the fire while his girl was getting frisky 
Ebm             Db             B
Ohh  I say we go this road tonight 
Gb
He smiles, his arms around her 
Abm
But his eyes are holdin me, just a captive to his wonder
Ebm             Db             B
Ohh  I say we go this road tonight 


       Ebm                                Db
Now I know that that's your girl, I mean no disrespect 
              B                            Gb          Db
The way that shirt hugs your chest boy, I just won't forget 
          Ebm            Db
I'll be sittin here, drinking my whiskey

Where everyday's the 4th of July and it's alright, alright 
Gb                                Db
And we can keep this up till the morning light 
                     B                           Ebm      Ebm Db
And you can hold me deep in your eyes and it's alright, alright

Gb
Ripped jeans, tight shirt 
Abm
He lights a cigarette you know I'm glad that she can't stand it
Ebm               Db                 B

    B                                Gb                  Db
