          NICKAJACK    River Road
F
It was a hot June morning on the interstate
F
She was flagging me down, I was 20 minutes late
          Bb
She was broke down, north bound, Georgia line
    F
I pulled on the shoulder and offered her a ride
 F
With just one look, it was heart and soul
Bb                                    C
We were like a river running out of control
CHORUS:
             F          
When the Tennessee River hits the nickajack dam
F
Up come the water over nickajack land
       Bb
Like a top on a bottle when it's ready to blow
F
Love is gonna take you where it wants you to go
           C
When you buckle -er down 'til she's a begging to break
          Bb                         F
Well a Tennesee River will make a nickajack lake
     F
2.) We spent a week together in the next two nights
F
it was a barn burnin' nothin' ever fit so right
  Bb
Before we both knew it we were makin' some plans
        F
Seeing rings on our fingers, on both of our hands
        C     
Daddy said I was crazy, then Mamas both cried
         Bb                                      C
But you gotta tell the world when you feel it inside
     F
3.) Now we got a cabin with a window view
F
of the water and the woods and the ol' dam too
    Bb
We got a layaway cradle her jeans are gettin' tight
     F
I guess lovin' make livin' and livin' makes life
    C  
I know how it is now the way it should be
                 Bb                 C 
Cause I look outside and what do I see
