Not sure of the 2nd to last line of the chorus. Any help is appreciated.


F
Short tables and no slop eight ball, line of crank off his gold top Les Paul 
Dm          Bb             F   
Woke you up, set you right, kept you talkin' to the middle of the next night
F
He had the stance, major attitude, vibrato you could o' thrown a cat through
Dm            Bb              F                                    Dm  Bb  F
A little much, a little heavy I guess the world just wasn't ready 
F
Just a ghost from back a long time ago, blue-eyed shadow you never mention anymore
Dm               Bb             F
Nothin' ventured, nothin' saved, you poured it out like bourbon on a fresh grave 
Dm               Bb     F
And learned your lesson well
Dm               Bb     F
And learned your lesson well



Chorus:
Dm             Bb
No helmet or a care in the world
Dm           Bb
Bein' such a bad little girl
Dm                      Bb
Your face buried in the back of his shirt
B                         Bb
Shut your eyes and you'll never get hurt
                   F
On the Valley road


Black wall, looking through the front door, mirror ball in the middle of the dance floor
And in the dream, it's still the same but in the daylight none of that remains
Waking up to the cold hard facts, seems like everybody's livin' in the third act
That's how it happens, it's kinda weird, the whole scene just disappeared
We learned our lesson well
We learned our lesson well

Solo

He missed a curve on a hard tail sled, nothin' broken 'Cept for his head
You know it's kinda fittin' somehow, hard to picture what he'd look like now
You learned your lesson well, you learned your lesson well
You learned your lesson well, you learned your lesson well


Chorus
No helmet or a care in the world
Bein' such a bad little girl
Your face buried in the back of his shirt 
Shut your eyes and you'll never get hurt

Chorus 2:
Flying in the Papago Wind 
Half way to Gila Bend 
No Helmet or a care in the world
Bein' such a bad little girl 
On the Valley road

I checked the 2nd to last line of the chorus. You were right...his
lyrics sheet says "you never get hurt", but you were close enough
that it works. When I listened to it, it sounds like he says "you'll"
so it works either way.
