       WALKAWAY JOE    Trisha Yearwood

C
Momma told her baby, girl take it real slow

Girl told her momma hey I really gotta go
      Dm             F
He's waitin' in the car
            Dm                 F    G
Momma said girl you won't get far
 C   
Thus are the dreams of an average Jane

Ninety miles an hour down  a lovers lane
      Dm        F                      Dm    F
On a tank of dreams Oh if she could've only seen
      G                   F                       G
But fate's got cards that it don't want to show  And that boy's just

CHORUS:
   F        C
A walkaway Joe  Born to be a leaver

Tell you from the word go, destined to deceive her 
         F               Bb                
He's a wrong kinda parad-ise 
                    C                      G
1.& 2.)She's gonna know it in a matter of time
3.)    But it was just another lesson in  life

      F             G      C
That boy's just a walkway Joe

C
Now just a little while into Abilene
C
Pulls into a station and he robs it clean
       Dm             F                  Dm     F     G
She's waitin' in the car Underneath the Texaco star
C
She only wanted love didn't bargain for this
C
She can't help but love him for the way he is. 
       Dm         F                     Dm     F     
She's only seventeen And there ain't no reasoning
G                            F                 G
So she'll ride this ride as far as it can go  Cause that boy's just

go to chorus, to lead, to third verse
C
Somewhere in a roadside motel room 
C
Alone in the silence she wakes up too soon
      Dm             F                         Dm     F
And reaches for his arm But she'll just keep reachin' on
G                          F                         G
For the cold hard truth revealed what it had known  That boy's just 

go to chorus.  

Ending:

Mmmm yeah  Alkl he was a walkaway Joe   ooooh  walkaway Joe  Walkaway Joe
Mmmmmm
