G It was painted red,D the stripe was white
It was eCighteen feet from the bow to the stern light
G Second hand from a dDealer in Atlanta
I rCode up with daddy when he went there to get 'er
G Put on a shineD put on a motor
BuCilt out of love and made for the water
G Ran her for years 'till the trDansom got rotten
A pCiece of my childhood that'll nCever be forgotten


It wasG just an old plDywood boat
With a sCeventy-five Johnson with electric choke
G A young boy two hDands on the wheel
C I can't replace the way it made me feel
And I wouldG turn her sharp and I'd mDake it wide
And he'dC say you can't beat the way an old wood boat rides
Em Just a little lake 'cross the AAlabama line
But I was kCing of the oceanD when daddy let meG drive

D C D

G Just an old half-ton shDort bed Ford
My Cuncle bought new in sixty-four
DGaddy got it right 'cause the Dengine was smokin'
C A couple of burnt valves and he had it goin'
G He'd let me drive her and we'd hDaul off a load
Down a dCirt strip where we'd dump trash off of Thigpen road
I'd sGit up in the seat and stretch my Dfeet out to the pedals
SmCilin' like a hero that just received his medal


It wasG just an old hDand-me-down Ford
With a thrCee speed on the column and a dent in the door
G A young boy two hDands on the wheel
C I can't replace the way it made me feel
I wouldG press that clutch and I'dD keep it right
And he'd sayC a little slower son you're doin' just fine
Em Just a dirt road with trAash on each side but I was MCario Andretti
D  When daddy let meG drive

G I'm grown up now three daDughters of my own
 I lCet 'em drive my old jeep 'cross the pasture at our home
G Maybe one day they'll reDach back in their file
 And pCull out that old mem'ry and Cthink of me and smile


And sayG it was just an old wDorn out jeep
RCusty old floor boards hot on my feet
G A young girl two hDands on the wheel
C I can't replace the way it made me feel
 And he'd sayG turn it left and stDeer it right
 StrCaighten up girl now you're doin' just fine
Em Just a little valley by the rAiver where we'd ride
 But I was hCigh on a mountainD when daddy let meG drive
D    daddy let me drCive D  oh he let meG drive
D C D

G She’s just an old plDywood boat
With a sCeventy-five Johnson with electric choke
