Capo 2nd


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

D
Jill was the local preacher's kid gone wild

Most the time her daddy couldn't stand his own child
A 
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
                             D
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
       A
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
        A
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
                     D
He couldn't see past his own pain
        A                         Bm
'Til he saw a pretty girl walkin' in the rain
G
Thank God he made it over that hill
                         A           D
That was the moment when Jayton met Jill
