I am normally not a big fan of the "new" post 1990 country music scene.  I
play a resonator guitar mostly bottleneck slide, delta blues, muddy waters,
bluegrass and rock music.  But, the first time I heard this song I loved
it.  It sounds great especially on a round neck resonator guitar.  Anyway,
just thought I would try to tab it out using an alternate tuning on my
resonator.  This is my interpretation and I think it sounds really great!!!
You can also use an acoustic guitar if you don't have a resonator.  Heres
how it is.........email me if you have any questions or comments good or
bad!  ****NOTE****I play this version with a slide and finger pick******

 1.  We met at a truckstop, Johnson City, Tennesee.
 2.  She had me stopping at a Kwik-Mart, Before we made it outta town.
 
CHORUS
     Yeah, and its a long way to Richmond,Rollin' off on 95. 
 3. **PLAYED SOFTLY**  
     Well we pulled up to a motel, In the middle of the night.

 1.  I was gassing up my Firebird, When I heard her callin' me.
 2.  Next thing she was runnin' at me, Tellin' me to lay that hammer down.
 
CHORUS
     With a redhead ridin' shotgun, And a pistol by my side
 3. **PLAYED SOFTLY** 
     We were counting all the money, Smoking stolen Marlboro Lights.

 1.   Said "Which way are you headed boy? Do you need some company?"
 2.  'Cause there's a man right behind me, Doin' his best to slow me down.
(At the end of this verse right before the chorus, pick the above sequence
one time and quickly slide from 3/12
                                3/12

CHORUS
     Tearing down that highway,  Like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde.
 3.  **PLAYED SOFTLY** 
     Lord, we never saw 'em comin' 'Til they read us both our rights.

After verse three, repeat the chorus
