Red Ragtop - Tim McGraw

Intro: G   Am

G
I was twenty and she was eighteen
         Am
We were just about as wild as we were green
        G                 Am
In the ways of the world
     G
She picked me up in that red ragtop
         Am
We were free of the folks, hiding from the cops
      G                            Am
On a summer night, runnin' all the red lights
        G
And we parked way out at a clearing in a grove
         Am
And the night was as hot as a coal burning stove
         G                       Am
We were cookin' with gas, ooh it had to last


                     C   G    Am
In the back of that red ra---gtop
          C      G     Am
She said please don't stop

Am

          G
Well the very first time her mother met me
     Am
Her green eyed girl had been a mother to be
     G         Am
For two weeks
       G
I was out of a job and she was in school
    Am
But life was fast and the world was cruel
         G                                 Am
We were young and wild, we decided not to have a child
       G
So we did what we did and we tried to forget
        Am
And we swore up and down there would be no regrets
        G                             Am
In the morning light, but on the way home that night

                     C   G    Am
On the back of that red ra---gtop
          C      G     Am
She said please don't stop
       G    Am
Lovin' me

         C        G     Am        G
We took one more trip around the sun
            C          G            Am
But it was all make believe in the end
      C         G        Am    Em
No I can't say where she is today
          Am7                    Bm   C   Am
I can't remember who I was back then

G    Am

         G
Well you do what you do and you pay for your sins
            Am
And there's no such thing as what might have been
          G                       Am
That's a waste of time, drive you outta your mind
       G
I was stopped at a red light just yesterday
  Am					    G
Beside a young girl in a Cabriolet and her eyes were green
                 Am
And I was in an old scene

                   C   G     Am
I was back in that red ra---gtop
        C   G   Am
On the day she stopped
       G    Am
Lovin' me
                   C   G     Am
I was back in that red ra---gtop
        C   G   Am
On the day she stopped
       G    Am
Lovin' me
