        I WAS       Neal McCoy

Intro chords  G C F
G                  C                 F
I drove up from a river town It was late September early October
G                       C               F                    G
Thought maybe I could clear my mind And see the leaves turn red
G                  C 
Tunes up and the window down 
       F 
On a skyline drive when she flagged me over
G                       C
Hal-lei-lu-jah what a beautiful morning 
          F                    G
Were the first words that she said
A              E           F                G
Her eyes were blue as the sky on a perfect blue ridge day
A                 E         F                   G
She said I could use a lift if you're going my way


CHORUS:
       A           D                  E
And I was, I was headed south I was headed out 
A                               D        E
headed nowhere or anywhere we wanted to go
     F#m            G              F#m
The road stretched out in front of us
          D               E          A
She was ready to run it just like I was

G                C            F
Told me she was 22 She just broken out of William and Mary
G                          C               F            G  
Another summer under her daddy's roof was all she could do
G              C                 F
Her boyfriend she cut him loose too cold for a wedding in January
 G                 C                  F            G      
She said that's enough about me now tell me about you
A         E           F                 G   
I rambled on about broken hearts and stayed too long
A              E             F            G
She said I'm sorry you were right to move on

Chorus, lead,
A               E      F                    G
Ain't it funny how everything hinges on a twist of fate
A             E             F           G            
She held my hand and said aren't you amazed? 
chorus,   Oh Oh
