The Naked Ride Home
From John Barr (email@example.com) Capo 1st Fret Intro: C F Am G Verse I: C G "Just take off your clothes and I'll drive you home," I said F C Knowing she never could pass on a dare. F C And knowing it sounded more desperate than reckless or bold G F I just put it out there cold, too far gone to care. Verse II: C G My eyes on the road, she slid herself down in the seat F C And a vision of paradise swung into view. F C Across those five lanes not one driver glanced over to see G F The beauty known only to me, and a big rig or two. Chorus: C G F On that freeway the light was receding C G F Her beauty, a sight so misleading C G F G I failed to hear the heart that was beating alone C F Am G On the naked ride home. Verse III: C G With the trace of a smile and that defiant look in her eye F C She hurtled through space in a world of her own. F C And turning aside my caress spoke of all that she'd not yet done G F As if I was the doubting one, who would have to be shown. (C:Chorus) Break Chords: C G F C F C G F Verse IV: C G She gathered her clothes and ran through the yard in the dark F C Up onto the porch like a flash, then inside. F C Then one room at a time I watched every light in our house come on G F Like the truth that would eventually dawn, forcing me to decide. (C:Chorus) C F Am G......on out.
