The Ride

	  THE RIDE 
by David Allan Coe 

Capo 3 

Intro: G  D  A   

A                                   
Well I was thumbing from Montgomery. 
C 
Had my guitar on my back. 
D                                           
When a stranger stopped beside me  
A 
in an antique Cadillac. 
A                               
He was dressed like 1950  
C 
half-drunk and hollow-eyed 
         D                     
He said "It's a long walk to Nashville  
                  A 
would you like a ride, son." 
 A                                
I sat down in the front seat.  
     C         
He turned on the radio and them 
D                                             
sad old songs comin' out of them speakers  
A 
was solid country gold. 
 A                                                       
Then I noticed the stranger was ghost white pale  
         C        
when he asked me for a light 
      D                                          A 
And I knew there was somthin' strange about this ride.

G D He said "Drifter can you make folks cry A when you play and sing? A Have you paid your dues? Can you moan the blues? E Can you bend them guitar strings?" G D A He said "Boy can you make folks feel what you feel inside G CAuse if you're big star bound D A let me warn ya' it's a long, hard ride."

A Then he cried just south of Nashville C and he turned that car around. D A He said "This is where you get off boy 'cause I'm goin' back to Alabam A As I stepped out of that old Cadillac C I said "Mister, many thanks." D He said "You don't have to call me Mister, Mister. A The whole world called me Hank." Chorus: G 'Cause if you're big star bound D A let me warn ya' it's a long, hard ride."
