F#            C#m       F#       C#m  
Sittin in the kitcken a house in Macon
F#        C#m            E   B
Loretta's singing on the radio
F#       C#m    E        B      
Smell of coffee eggs and bacon
    F#     C#m         E    B
Car wheels on a gravel road

F#       C#m               F#      C#m
Pull the curtains back and look outside
F#       C#m              E     B            
Somebody somehere I don't know
F#         C#m                E        B                      
Come on now child we're gonna go for a ride
    F#     C#m        E      B
Car wheels on a gravel road

[Chorus]
    E                  B
Car wheels on a gravel road
B   E                     B   F# C#m  F#  C#m F# C#m    B
Car wheels on a gravel road

F#           C#m        F#      C#m
Can't find a damn thing in this place
F#        C#m              E    B
Nothing's where I left it before
F#     C#m        E          B
Set of keys and a dusty suitcase
    F#     C#m         E  B
Car wheels on a gravel road

F#             C#m         F#       C#m
There goes the screen door slamming shut
F#         C#m            E    B
You better do what you're told
F#         C#m            E               B
When I get back this room better be picked-up
    F#     C#m         E     B
Car wheels on a gravel road

[Chorus]

F#         C#m    F#           C#m  
Low hum of voices in the front seat
F#      C#m    E  B
Stories nobody knows
F#           C#m           E        B
Got folks in Jackson we're going to meet
    F#     C#m         E    B  
Car wheels on a gravel road

F#      C#m              F#        C#m
Cotton fields stretching miles and miles
F#     C#m           E  B
Hank's voice on the radio
F#               C#m            E      B
Telephone poles trees and wires fly on by

[Chorus]
F# C#m  F#  C#m F# C#m    B

F#           C#m   F#     C#m
Broken down shacks engine parts
F#           C#m                    E    B
Could tell a lie but my heart would know
F#                 C#m    E      B
Listen to the dogs barkin in the yard
    F#     C#m         E     B
Car wheels on a gravel road


F#           C#m            F#           C#m
Child in the backseat about four or five years
F#     C#m     E   B
Lookin out the window
F#            C#m  B          E(??)
Little bit of dirt mixed with tears
    F#     C#m  E       B
Car wheels on a gravel road
B   E                  B
Car wheels on a gravel road
B   E                  B
Car wheels on a gravel road
