Drive (For Daddy Gene)
Written and recorded by Alan Jackson

G D7
It was painted red the stripe was white
C D7
It was eighteen feet from the bow to stern light
G D7
Secondhand from a dealer in Atlanta
C
I rode up with daddy when he went there to get her

G D7
We put on a shine put on a motor
C
Built out of love and made for the water
G D7
Ran her for years till the transom got rotten
C
A piece of my childhood will never be forgotten

G D7
It was just an old plywood boat
C
With a 75 Johnson with electric choke
G D7
A young boy two hands on the wheel
C
I can't replace the way it made me feel

G D7
And I would turn her sharp and I would make it whine
C
He'd say you can't beat the way an old wood boat rides
Em Am
Just a little lake across the Alabama line
C D7 G
But I was king of the ocean when daddy let me drive

D7
Just an old half ton short bed ford
C
My Uncle bought new in '64
G D7
Daddy got it right cause the engine was smoking
C
A couple of burnt valves and he had it going

G D7
He'd let me drive her when we’d haul off a load
C
Down a dirt strip where we'd dump trash off of Thickpen Road
G D7
I'd sit up in the seat and stretch my feet out to the pedals
C
Smiling like a hero who just received his medal

G D7
It was just an old hand me down Ford
C
With three speed on the column and a dent in the door
G D7
A young boy two hands on the wheel
C
I can't replace the way it made me feel
G
And I would press that clutch down

D7
And I would keep it right
C
He’d say a little slower son you're doing just fine
Em Am
Just a dirt road with trash on each side
C D7 G
But I was Mario Andretti when daddy let me drive

D7 G D7
I'm grown up now three daughters of my own
C
I let’em drive my old jeep

Across the pasture at our home
G D7
Maybe one day they'll reach back in their file
C
And pull out that old memory
G
And think of me and smile and say

D7
It was just an old worn out jeep
C
Rusty old floor boards hot on my feet
G D7
A young girl two hands on the wheel
C
I can't replace the way it made me feel

G D7
And he'd say turn it left and steer it right
C
Straighten it up girl now you're doing just fine
Em Am
Just a little valley by the river where we'd ride
C D7 G D7
But I was high on a mountain when daddy let me drive

C D7 G D7 C
Daddy let me drive oh he let me drive
G D7
It's just an old plywood boat
C G
With a 75 Johnson and electric choke
