Recorded in the key of Ab

        C           G                     C                     G

His tail lights flickering as he pulled up to the truck stop

         C                              Em              D 

The same old crowd was hanging out again tonight

             C             G              Am   Bm   C   D 

He said fill up my tank while I go check my load

                                   C     G 

It feels like it´s shifting all around

        C                    G        G/F#     Em

He was the kind of man, do all he could

             C      G            D 

Above all he had integrity

       C                D                   C         G

But he was so young and on a ten city run

      D               C            G

In love with a truck stop girl

      C             G                 C            G

As he went inside he was memorily greeted

            C             Em                 D

By the girl with whom he was in love

         C             G                   AmBmC     D

She held out a glass and said have           another

                               C          G

This is the last time we can meet

                C                 G                   G/F#   Em 

With her hair piled up high and a look in her eye

                    C           G                              D

That would turn any good man´s blood to wine

C                          D    C                        G

All his eyes could see, all his eyes could see

                D             C                        G 

Was the stares from all these around him

                 G/F#  Em        C                   G

He ran out to the lot and climbed into his rig

                                     C             G

And drove off without tightening down

               C         G              G/F#    Em

It was a terrible thing to see what remained

           C                   G            D

Of the rig that poor Danny was in

C             D                   C         G

He was young and on a ten city run

       D               C            G

In  love with a truck stop girl
