      THE CHAIN OF LOVE    Clay Walker
He was driving home one evening, in his beat up pontiac
When an old lady flagged him down her mercades had a flat
          A                  Em              A                Em
He could see that she was frighten standing out there in the snow
         A                                                       D
Till he said, "I'm here to help you, ma'am By the way my name's Joe
She said, "I'm from St. Louis and I'm only passing through."
"I must have seen a hundred cars go by. This is awful nice of you."
          A                    Em
When he changed her tire and closed her trunk
      A             Em              A  
Was about to drive away she said, "How much do I owe you."
A                      D
Here's what he had to say.

                      G                     D
You don't owe me a thing.  I've been there too.
          A                          D    
Someone once helped me out just the way I'm helping you
         G                          D                  G
If you really want to pay me back Here's what you can do
G                D   G  Bm  Em   A    D 
Don't let the chain of love end with you.

Well a few miles down the road the lady saw a small café
She went in to grab a bite to eat and then be on her way
           A                Em               A               Em
But she couldn't help but notice how the waitress smiled so sweet
              A                                                D     
And how she must have been eight months along and dead on her feet
No, she didn't know her story and she probably never will.
When the waitress went to get her change from a hundred dollar bill
            A                   Em             A            Em
The lady slipped right out the door and on a napkin left a note
             A                                                    D
There were tears in the waitress's eyes when she read what she wrote.

Go to chorus
That night when she got home from work The watiress climbed in to bed
She was thinking about the money and what the ladie's note had said
         A                 Em            A               Em
As her husband lay there sleeping she whispered soft and low
  A                                         D
Everything's gonna be alright.  I love you Joe.

Instrumental to ending.
