[Verse]
       D   
I got one that I take to a honey hole
           C/D   
Where the bluegill always bite
     D    
And one that's a shortcut to anywhere
           C/D   
As long as you ain't short on time
D   
I been down every one in this town
    Cadd9                    G   
At least a couple thousand times
          D    
They can get these four wheels from A to B
       Cadd9                          G
Oh, but they can't take me where you take me

[Chorus]
  D
You're the best thing since back roads, baby
Cadd9                          G  
Pedal to the medal with the windows down
  D    
Sunshine setting on a cross that saved me
Cadd9                       G   
Hanging from a rearview in red dirt clouds
 D                              Cadd9   
Two-lane heaven's one hell of a view
                   G  
But it ain't got nothing on you
  D   
Driving this good old country boy crazy
Cadd9                        G           D
You're the best thing since back roads, baby

[Verse]
       D        
I can show you one nobody knows
   Cadd9                G  
It turns into Sediment Creek
        D               
We can get a little moonlight, mud on the tires
Cadd9                     G
Baby, if you know what I mean
 D
Angel in the front seat, yeti in back
   Cadd9             G    
Out here connecting dots on a map

[Chorus]
  D
You're the best thing since back roads, baby
Cadd9                          G  
Pedal to the medal with the windows down
  D    
Sunshine setting on a cross that saved me
Cadd9                       G   
Hanging from a rearview in red dirt clouds
 D                              Cadd9   
Two-lane heaven's one hell of a view
                   G  
But it ain't got nothing on you
  D   
Driving this good old country boy crazy
Cadd9                        G           D
You're the best thing since back roads, baby

[Bridge]
C/D 
Pretty as a windshield
C/D
Painted with a blue sky
C/D
Out here in a leather seat, seat belt buckled
       Cadd9       G 
In the middle of July

[Chorus]
  D
You're the best thing since back roads, baby
Cadd9                          G  
Pedal to the medal with the windows down
  D    
Sunshine setting on a cross that saved me
Cadd9                       G   
Hanging from a rearview in red dirt clouds
 D                              Cadd9   
Two-lane heaven's one hell of a view
                   G  
But it ain't got nothing on you
  D   
Driving this good old country boy crazy
Cadd9                        G           D
You're the best thing since back roads, baby
       Cadd9                       G           D  
Yeah, you're the best thing since back roads, baby
       Cadd9                       G            D
Yeah, you're the best thing since back roads, baby
