Drive-By-Truckers - Zip City

Intro C Am C 
      Dm F C G X3

Your Daddy was mad as hell
He was mad at me and you
As he tied that chain to the front of my car and 
pulled me out of that ditch that we slid into
Don't know what his problem is
Why he keeps dragging you away
Don't know why I put up with this s**t
         Dm                                  C
When you don't put out and Zip City's so far away

Repeat Intro

     C                             Am
Your Daddy is a deacon down at the Salem Church of Christ
       F                                    Dm
And He makes good money as long as Reynolds Wrap keeps everything wrapped up tight
C                              Am
Your Mama's as good a wife and Mama as she can be
          F                                       Dm
And your Sister's puttin' that sweet stuff on everybody in town but me
      G                                   Am              
Your Brother was the first-born, got ten fingers and ten toes
            F                                           Dm   
And it's a damn good thing cause He needs all twenty to keep the closet door closed

Repeat Intro

Dm                             F                              C
Maybe it's the twenty-six mile drive from Zip City to Colbert Heights
Keeps my mind clean Gets me through the night
Dm                        F
Maybe you're just a destination, a place for me to go
         C                                 G                            Dm
A way to keep from having to deal with my seventeen-year-old mind all alone
Keep your drawers on, girl, it ain't worth the fight
By the time you drop them I'll be gone
    G                                                Dm
And you'll be right where they fall the rest of your life

Repeat Intro

               Dm                          F
You say you're tired of me taking you for granted
                          C                                       G
Waiting' up till the last minute to call you up and see what you want to do
           Dm                                 F
Well you're only fifteen, girl, you ain't got no secretary
         C                                   G
And for granted is a mighty big word for a country girl like you
You know it's just your Daddy talking
F                                           C
Cause He knows that blood red carpet at the Salem Church of Christ
            G                                  Dm
Ain't gonna ever see no wedding between me and you

Repeat Intro

C                                    Am
Zip City it's a good thing that they built a wall around you
F                                  Dm
Zip up to Tennessee then zip back down to Alabama
      C                  Am
I got 350 heads on a 305 engine
I get ten miles to the gallon
        Dm                       C
I ain't got no good intentions
