     SOMETHING LIKE THAT       Tim McGraw
F
It was labor day weekend I was seventeen
Bb
I bought a coke and some gasoline
F                              Bb
And I drove out to the county fair
F
When I first saw her for the first time
          Bb
She was standing there in the ticket line
F                              Bb
It all started right then and there
       Bb                  C
Oh a sailor's sky made a perfect sun set
Bb                      C   
And that's a day I'll never forget

CHORUS:
         F                    C
I had a Bar B Q stain on my white T shirt
                             Bb  
1.)She 2.)You 3.)She   was killing me in the mini skirt
F                       C                    Bb
Skipping rocks on the river by the railroad tracks
                         F                      C
1.)She 2.)You 3.)She    had a sun tan line and red lipstick
    Bb       
I worked so hard for that first kiss
                       F                          C           F
And a heart don't for-get [3.) go to ending]  something like that



F
Well it's five years later on a south bound plane
         Bb
I  was headed down to New Orleans
F                                           Bb
To meet some friends of mine for the Marti Gras
F               
When I heard a voice from the past
Bb          
Coming from A few rows back
             F                                    Bb
And when I looked I couldn't believe just what I saw
                             C
She said, I bet you don't remember me
             Bb                C
And I said, only every other memory and 

Go to chorus using 2.)
F                   C             Bb              F 
Like an old photo-graph Time can make a feeling fade
          Bb                       C
But the memory of the first love never fades away

ENDING:
      Bb            F               Bb          F
No a heart don't forget  I said a heart don't forget
    C           F      Bb                        F
Something like that  oooooh  Not something like that
