        F                           
I was raised off of rural route three
     C
Out past where the black top ends
      Dm
We'd walked to church on Sunday morning
       Bb 
Race barefoot back to Johnson's fence
 F
That's where I first saw Mary
C                                       Dm
On that road side pickin' black berries
                         F           Bb           C         F 
That summer I turn the corner in my soul  out on Red Dirt road

CHORUS:
               F                  C
It's where I drank my first beer    It's where I found Jesus
Dm                                Bb   
  Where I wrecked my first car I tore it all to pieces
F                       C  
  I learn the path to heaven Is full of sinners and believers
Dm                                       Bb 
  Learned that happiness on earth Ain't just for high achievers
    Gm                Am                   Bb       C  n.c.               F C Bb               
I learned; I come to know There's life at both ends    of that red dirt road



 F
Her daddy didn't like me much
          C
In my shackled up G.T.O.
Dm
  I'd sneaked out in the middle of the night
       Bb
Throw rocks at her bedroom window
F                        
We'd turned out the headlights
C
Drive by the moonlight
Dm                                   Bb
   Talk about what the future might hold
           C         F       
Down that red dirt road


to chorus, to lead
    C                Dm       Bb        C 
I went out into the world  I came back in
        Dm                Bb   
I lost Mary Oh I got her back again
Gm                   Am
But driving home to-night
                      Bb         C  
Feels like I found a long lost friend

To chorus, to instrumental ending
