We Rode in Trucks (Bryan Luke)

D G D D 1. Down where I born it was heaven on earth. G The Flint River washes that red Georgia dirt. D A The sun sets slow and the stars shine bright. D We raised cotton, corn, a little cane, and kids. G You either lived on a farm or wish you did. D A Jesus always walked close by our side. E A G D G Where I grew up, we rode in trucks. D 2. There's a lot about life you can learn on a bus, G How to lie, how to fight, how to kiss, how to cuss. D A The closer we sat to the back, the smarter we got. D We were poor, we were ugly, we were all best friends. G White-eyed, baptized, and still wantin' to sin. D A Thank God we get more than just one shot. E A D Where I grew up, we rode in trucks. A D G D R1: That's us, haulin' hay in the field with the radio on. A G E That's us, headin' straight into town when the work is done. A G D G In my mind, I can still see us now, ridin' down Buck Island Road. A E It wasn't that long ago. D 3. We thought tobacco and beer in a can G Was all it would take to be like our old man. D A But I saw how it made my momma cry. D It was huntin' and fishin' and football games. G E Then it was girls, and everything changed, A E A D In our lives… Fallin' in and out of love, we rode in trucks. A G D R2: That's us with our tailgates down in the parking lot. A G E That's us with mud on our tires when it rained a lot. A G D G In my mind, I can still see us now, ridin' down Buck Island Road. G E G E G D G It wasn't that long ago, it's apart of my soul. Yeah. D Down where I was born, it was heaven on earth. G The Flint River washes that red Georgia dirt. D A The sun sets slow and the stars shine bright.
