[Intro]
F  Am  A#  C  F


[Verse]
                    F
I was sittin' there, sellin' turnips on a flatbed truck
Am
Crunchin' on a pork rind when she pulled up
    A#
She had to be thinkin "this is
C                   F
where rednecks come from"


[Verse]
F
She had Hollywood written on her license plate
        Am
She was lost and lookin for the interstate
A#                 C                          F
Needin' directions and I was the man for the job


[Chorus]
           A#                      C
I told her way up yonder past the caution light
          A#                            C
There's a little country store with an old coke sign
          A#                 C                          Dm
You gotta stop and ask Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
       A#                         C
Then a left will take you to the interstate
      A#                   C~                         F   \
And a right will bring you right back here to me


[Verse]
                    F
I was sittin' there, thinkin 'bout her perty face
Am
Kickin' myself for not catching her name
  A#                             C                        F
I threw my hat and thought, you fool, it could have been love


[Verse]
  F
I knew my old Ford couldn't run her down,
Am
she probably didn't like me anyhow
     A#               C                    F
So I watched her disappear into a cloud of dust


[Chorus]
           A#                      C
I told her way up yonder past the caution light
          A#                            C
There's a little country store with an old coke sign
          A#                 C                          Dm
You gotta stop and ask Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
       A#                         C
Then a left will take you to the interstate
      A#                   C~                      F
And a right will bring you right back here to me


[Bridge]
        A#                    C
Is this Georgia heat playin' tricks on me
      Dm                     C
Or am I really seein' what I think I see
    A#           C                     Dm  C  A#
The woman of my dreams comin' back to me


[Interlude]
F  Am  A#  C  F


[Verse]
         A#                      C
She went way up yonder past the caution light
   \(A#)                            C
Don't know why, but somethin' felt right
         A#                     C
When she stopped and asked Ms. Bell
                      Dm
For some of her sweet tea
                        A#
Mama gave her a big ol' glass and
         C                  F
Sent her right back here to me


[Outro]
      A#              C       \                   F
