Down the road where the black top ends, you can find Colt Ford with all his friends, 
  D                           Em 
weⴴre used to gravel roads, and fishinⴴ 
                 C                          G 
with cane poles, wasnⴴt no swimminⴴ pools, jus swimminⴴ holes.  

D                         Em                     C                                G

D                            Em                C                      G

D                             Em                          C                                      G 
you can leave your door open, aint nuttinⴴ gunna happen, most country folks sing, but I couldnⴴt, so im rappin 
D                       Em                   C                     G
