                D      C               G
Blue Kentucky highway heading for the line
                   D
she hasn't said a word all night
          C                        G
but the wheels are turning in her mind
                   C                             G
Now I was riding shotgun I knew things had gone awry
                       A
Just as soon as she dropped me off on the side of the road
         D
and she let that gravel fly

CHORUS:
                                    G
Now I'm walking 2.)talking in the moonlight
G                       C
Seeing nothing but the tail lights
G                    Em             A              D
And that's a pair of tail lights I may never see again
                      G
She hit me with the left and right
                           C
Showing me nothing but the tail lights
G                    Em           A
And that's about as lonely as a highway's ever been
C                   D                G
Back here with my thrumb out in the wind


                         D
Was it something that I did to her
C                       G
Or the things I never said?
                D           C               G
I wondered the way we were was only in my head
                       C                                G
Now if I ever make it back to town before the sun comes up
                A
I'm gonna hit every parking spot around
        D
'til I find that pick up truck

go to chorus using 2.)

TAG
         C
Well, I bet right now she's laughing at how
G                     A
She brought me to my knees
C
She won't be laughing half as loud
           D
When she gives me back my keys      go to ending chorus.

Ending CHORUS :
                                    G
'Cause she'll be walking in the moonlight
G                       C
Seeing nothing but the tail lights
        G                Em              A               D
I know that's a pair of tail lights she will never see again
                      G
She hit me with the left and right
                           C
Showing me nothng but the tail lights
G                    Em           A
And that's about as lonely as a highway's ever been
C                   D                G
Back here with my thrumb out in the wind

There she goes.  Here I come.
Leave me out here in the middle of nowhere...like this
