Dierks Bentley
CD: Dierks Bentley
2003, Capitol Nashville

Capo I Fret  

Intro : (E)  (C)  (D)   (A)

(E) Becky was a beauty from South Alabam'
Her (C) daddy had a heart like a 9-pound hammer
(D) Think he even did a little time in the slammer
(A7) What was I thinkin'
She (E) snuck out one night and met me by the front gate
Her (C) daddy came out wavin' that 12-gauge
(D) Tore out of the drive, he peppered my tailgate
(A7) What was I thinkin'
I (B5) knew there'd be hell to pay
But, that crossed my mind a little too (B) late

   Cause I was (E) thinkin' 'bout a (Bm) little white (A) tank top
   (G) Sittin' right (E) there in the (Bm) middle by (A) me 
   I was (E) thinkin' 'bout a (Bm) long kiss 
   (A) Man just (G) gotta get
   (E) Goin' where the (D) night might (A) lead
   I (B5) know what I was feelin' (D)   (A)
   But, what was I th(E)inkin' (C)  (D)  (A)

By the (E) county line, the cop's were nippin' on my heels
(C) Pulled off the road, kicked it in 4-wheel
(D) Shut off the lights, tore through a corn field
(A7) What was I thinkin'
From the (E) other side, she was hollerin' "faster"
(C) Took a dirt road, had the radio blastin'
(D) Hit the honky tonk for a little close dancin'
(A7) What was I thinkin'
Oh, I (B) knew there'd be hell to pay
But, that crossed my mind a little too (E) late

Repeat Chorus

Solo: (E5)  (F#)  (B7)  (F#)  (C)  (D)  (E5)  (E5)

When a (E) mountain of a man with a 'Born To Kill' tattoo
Tr(C)ied to cut in, I knocked out his front tooth
(D) Ran outside, hood-slidin' like Bo Duke
(A7) What was I thinkin'
(E) Finally got her home at half past 2 - late
Her (C) daddy, in a lawn chair, sittin' on the driveway
(D) Put it in park, and he started my way
(A7) What was I thinkin'
Oh...(G) what was I thinkin'
(C) What was I thinkin'

Then she (B5) gave a come-and-get-me grin
Like a bullet, we were gone a(B)gain 

Repeat Chorus

(Ad lib and fade out...)

You just made a fool of yourself. You have no
tabs and this guy has a freaking lot. He is one
of the best tabbers on the site buddy. Just
shutup I mean he puts time and energy into tabs
to help people and you tell him he sucks. When
you have no tabs does that make any sense? Just
Shut Up.

Forget it, guys. When people make comments like that, it shows their maturity.
-WildCard76 | 8/17/2003
I know you said forget it but I gotta take a
stab at this guy too.....grow up man. I
hate reading comments like these on good tabs.
-cmtboy | 8/21/2003
to everyone that said this is a bad tab, how about ya'll get off of your lazy asses and try to make your own tabs. but no!!!!!!you cant tab, you prob cant even read music. I bet your not the best guitar player also.
-KG4KFJ | 9/27/2003
Well, I sure do appreciate all of the support! Nice to know that my time is well spent.
-WildCard76 | 10/3/2003
hell, I thought it sounded good when I
played it, it is a little hard to read how
it is written, but who am I to say anything.
thanx for the hard work and good music
-vinnie_sneider | 10/21/2003
it sounds great! the only thing that i might change is in the chours, instead of going to the G stay on A. thanks a lot for the tab

WildCard76..not commenting on your tab but can you do us older folks a fav and put the chords on top of the text please..just to make it easier for us guy's with glasses..

-WayneXG95 | 4/20/2004
i don't care what anybody else says this tab is good stuff. I'm just a begginer and I like how you put the cords in through the whole song that's hard to come by. hope to see more from you.
-kps11 | 1/14/2005
Well...I aint seen nothin wrong...mayube it's me but sounds like a good tab
-speed2345 | 1/18/2005
When you put the chords 'in' the song
vs. on top of the lines, it's nearly
impossible to have alignment problems.
I have tried both ways of tabbing,
and find that this is easier.
-WildCard76 | 2/7/2005
If you and palami0 had collaborated and posted one version of this song, I think it would be perfect. I like your use of the B5, but I think you should try using A instead of A7. Just my opinion.
