      THE DAY SHE LEFT TULSA (In A Chevy)      Wade Hayes

Intro chords D# G# C# G#

G#            D#                     C#
   We were a half mile high on the Ferris wheel
                  G#
at our old County Fair
D#                          C#
I didn't even know we had trouble until
                          D#
Until she told me way up there
        Fm                    C#
That's when my life started spinning 'round
    Fm                         A#
My world came crashing to the ground
    C#                 D#
The Day that she left Tulsa
CHORUS:
       G#
In a Chevy in a hurry in a pouring down rain
G#
Where the caution lights flashing in the passing lane
         C#                                        D#
From a bridge I watched our dreams going down the drain
      C#                     D#          G#   1.) D# C# G#  2.) G#
In a Chevy in a hurry in a pouring down rain


G# D#              C#                                   G#
   No she wasn't showing yet But she'd be by Christmas time
    D#               C#                         D#
Up there like a fool I took for granted it was mine.
      Fm                           C#
She never came out and told me that I was wrong
     Fm                           A#
But all of a sudden the light came on
     C#                D#
The day that she left Tulsa

got to chorus
C#                                           Fm                  
I guess she thought the truth would end up driving me away
               C#                                D#
Well she was wrong but I never had the chance to say
    C#            D#
The day she left Tulsa, go to chorus, ending,
ENDING:
G#
In a Chevy, in a hurry, in a pouring down rain
In a Chevy, in a hurry, in a pouring down rain, go to chorus
