      G                             C

1. If I drove a truck, and I were a waitress,

          G                                                       D

    and I ordered coffee, and I poured you some.

        C                                        G

    Then you'd stop by on your way sometimes later,

           G                                    D                 G

    and if we arm-wrestled, I'd see that you won.

 

Em                D                               C                               G    -  D

    Ai-ee, my baby, ride easy, ride high in the saddle all day !

            G             C                      D                    G

If your loving is good, and your cooking ain't greasy,

            G                      C                D               G 

we'll chuck the chuck wagon and we'll ride away.

 

      G                             C

2. If I were a winsome pale senorita,

          G                                                  D

    and I a bull-fighter, way down in the sand,

                     C                                      G

    while the band kept on playing that old Paso Double

                         G                                       D                 G

    would you throw me a flower ? Would you take my hand ?

 

+  CHORUS       

 

+  instrumental = verse 2

 

      G                               C

3. If I ran the country, I'd be your first lady,

           G                                                                D

    and fix up the White House while you were away.

       C                                         G

    Waiting while you're passing time with world leaders,

     G                              D                    G

    left alone together, alone we might lay.

 

+  CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                G             C                      D                    G

+  If your loving is good, and your cooking ain't greasy,

                G                      C                D               G 

    we'll chuck the chuck wagon and we'll ride away.

                G                       C                D               G 

    We'll chuck the chuck wagon and we'll ride away.

 

       G
