This is the first song i've ever posted on the internet, so corrections are 
welcome.  Sounds right though with the song.  Listen to the song for the 
strumming patterns.  I like to throw in a little picking along the way.  Its 
a great song.  I think everybody can relate to it somehow.  God Bless.

Capo 4
Intro: G
G                    D
It was painted red, the stripe was white
C                                              D
It was 18 feet from the bow to the stern light
G                   D
Second hand from a dealer in Atlanta
C                                           N.C.
I rode up with daddy when he went there to get her.
G                  D
Put on the shine, put on the motor
C                                     D G
Built out of love, and made for water
We had her for years till the transom got rotten
A piece of my childhood that'll never be forgotten.

Chorus I
G                   D
It was just an old ply wood boat
C                                     D G
With a 75 Johnson, and electric choke.
G              D
A young boy 2 hands on the wheel
I cant replace the way it made me feel
G                               D
And i would turn her sharp and I'd make it white
And he'd say you cant beat the way an old wood boat rides
Em                          C
Just a little lake cross the alabama line
             Am             D                    G    (GDCD)X2
But i was king of the ocean when daddy let me drive.
G                     D                C
Just an old half ton, short bed ford, my uncle bought new in 64.
G                    D
Daddy got it right cause the engine was smokin',
Couple of burnt valves and he had it goin'
G                         D
He'd let me drive her and we'd haul off a load
Down a dirt strip where we'd dump trash off the Thigpin road
G                        D
I'd set up in the seat, stretch my feet out to the peddles,
Smiling like a hero that just recieved his meddle.

Chorus 2:
G                   D                       C
It was just an old hand-me-down ford, with three speed on the column
And a dent in the door.
              D                      C
A young boy, 2 hands on the wheel. I cant replace the way it
                  G                                 D
Made me feel.  and i would press that clutch and i'd keep it right
and he'd say a little slower son ye doin just fine.
Em                        C                        Am
Just a dirt road with trash on each side but i was Mario Andretti
     D               (GDCD) X2
When daddy let me drive.
G                 D
I'm grown up now 3 daughters of my own.
I let 'em drive my old jeep cross the pasture at our home.
G                D
Maybe one day they'll reach back in their file.
And pull out that old memory and think of me and smile and say.

Final Chorus:
G                  D
It was just an old worn out Jeep
C                                           DG
With rusty old floor-boards, hot on my feet.
A young girl, 2 hands on the wheel,
I cant replace the way it made me feel.
         G                   D
and i would turn it left and steer it right
Straiten up girl now ye doin just fine.
Em                          C
Just a little valley by the river where we'd ride
           Am                  D
but i was high on the mountain
                      G D                     C   D
When daddy let me drive    when daddy let me driiive
                G   D   C     D
Whoa he let me driiiiiive

G (once)                D(once)
She's just an old ply wood boat
C(once)                               End with G
with a 75 johnson and electric choke.
