[Verse]
E      
My side of the tracks ain’t wrong
E
Just a little bit more country song
      E   
I’ll tell your daddy it’ll be alright
        E  
When I pick you up around 6 tonight

[Chorus]
            C#m         A   
Long as my truck cranks up
        E  
And it don’t break down
        C#m         A  
And the levee hangs in
         E   
And the bridge holds out
    C#m           A                 E
The blue lights ain’t where the blacktop ends
    F#m                         B    
The hole’s still there in the barbed wire fence

[Post-Chorus]
           E          
Whoa I’m taking you fishing in the dark tonight
      E     
Your old man willin’ and the creek don’t rise

[Verse]
E 
Ain’t much money don’t mean no fun
      E  
It’s all we got where I come from
      E   
I’m taking you out where the high brows ain’t
          C#m    A          B   
Do some cashin’ in at that muddy bank

[Chorus]
           C#m          A  
Long as my truck cranks up
         E 
And it don’t break down
        C#m          A
And the levee hangs in
          E
And the bridge holds out
    C#m           A                E    
The blue lights ain’t where the blacktop ends
     F#m                        B 
The hole’s still there in the barbed wire fence

[Post-Chorus]
           E  
Whoa I’m taking you fishing in the dark tonight
      E 
Your old man willin’ and the creek don’t rise

[Bridge]
            E 
Long as my truck cranks up

And it don’t break down
          E    
And the levee hangs in

And the bridge holds out
    C#m          A                 E   
The blue lights ain’t where the blacktop ends

[Chorus]
             C#m         A 
Long as my truck cranks up
        E
And it don’t break down
         C#m        A  
And the levee hangs in
          E
And the bridge holds out
    C#m           A                 E
The blue lights ain’t where the blacktop ends
     F#m                          B  
That hole’s still there in that barbed wire fence

[Post-Chorus]
           E
Whoa I’m taking you fishing in the dark tonight
 E 
Old man willin’ and the creek don’t rise
