      SMOKEY MOUNTAIN RAIN       Ronnie Milsap

       D                               Bm
I thumbed my way from L.A. back to knoxville
             F#m                                  A
I found out those bright lights ain't where  I belong.
         G                                       Bm
>From a phone booth in the rain I called to tell her
            A7              A
I've had a change of dreams I'm coming home
        G                                       A
Tears filled my eyes when I found out she was gone

D                               F#m               G         A
Smokey Mountain Rain keeps on falling keeps on calling her name
D                                    F#m                   G          A
Smokey Mountain rain I'll keep on searching can't go on hurting this way
        G                 A              D
She's somewhere in the smokey mountain rain

Lifted me a diesel outside a cafe

He said he was going as far as Gatenburg

I climbed up in the cab all wet and cold and lonely

I wiped my eyes and told him about her

To find her can you make these big wheels burn

D                                 F#m
Can't blame her for letting go     A woman needs someone warm to hold
G                                      A                               A7
I feel the rain running down my face  I'll find her no matter what it takes
