Capo 2nd

Jayton had a job for seven bucks an hour
At the fillin' station by the water tower
Just checkin' oil and fixin' flats
G                                       D
The kind of kid most folks just look past

Jill was the local preacher's kid gone wild

Most the time her daddy couldn't stand his own child
He'd quote the scr i pture with an angry shout
G                                                   D
And list her all the reasons she would never turn out

          G                      D
She was drunk one night on the fourth of July
A                            Bm
Parked in a pasture with an out-of-town guy
G                        D 
He got mad when she said no
        Em               G
And he tore her Sunday dress
She was wanderin' alone on a county road
         A                    Bm
When the lights came over the hill
G                         A         D
That was the moment when Jayton met Jill

He said hey, do you need a ride home

She go away, leave me alone
But he noticed the bruise and the frightened tears
            G                                       D
Said there ain't no way in Hell I'm leavin' you out here

It was rainin' a little and fixin' to storm

And his Mustang jacket looked dry and warm
So she let him wrap it 'round her and she climbed inside
G                                   D 
Sayin' OK I guess thanks for the ride
      G                  D
At an all-night diner they waited out the storm
A                      Bm
Ended up talking right up 'til dawn
G                              D
By the time he dropped her off safe at home
Em                   G
Neither one felt so alone
               D                        A                      Bm
Two lost souls found a connection that's blessin' both of them still
G                  A          D
On that night when Jayton met Jill
         G                     D
And what Jayton never told her about that night 
            A                   Bm
Is how he'd taken his dad's old 45
          G                           D
He'd been drivin' 'round thinkin' how no one would miss him 
   Em                G
If he just ended it all
He couldn't see past his own pain
        A                         Bm
'Til he saw a pretty girl walkin' in the rain
Thank God he made it over that hill
                         A           D
That was the moment when Jayton met Jill
