    Intro: / Am - G - / D - Am - / x4


    Am                G

    She grew up in an Indiana town

           D                     Am

    Had a good lookin' Mama who never was around

              Am                   G

    But she grew up tall and she grew up right

              D                  Am

    With them Indiana boys on an Indiana night


    / Am - G - / D - Am - / x2


               Am                     G

    Well, she moved down here at the age of 18

          D                          Am

    She blew the boys away - It was more than they'd seen

    Am                       G

    I was introduced and we both started groovin'

         D                          Am

    She said I dig you baby, but I got to keep movin'


    Am     G   D               Am

           on   keep movin' on


    / Am - G - / D - Am - /



    Em (2)

    Last dance with Mary Jane

                               A (2)

    One more time to kill the pain

    Em (2)

    I feel summer creepin' in and I'm

                         A (1)   G (hold 1)

    Tired of this town again


    / Am - G - / D - Am - / x2


         Am                G

    Well I don't know  but I've been told

         D                    Am

    You never slow down  you never grow old

         Am                    G

    I'm tired of screwing up  tired of going down

     D                Am

    Tired of myself  tired of this town


    Am         G

    Oh my my  Oh hell yes

    D                  Am

    Honey put on that party dress

    Am                  G

    Buy me a drink and sing me a song

    D                           Am

    Take me as I come  'cause I can't stay long




    / Am - G - / D - Am - / x4


             Am              G

    There's pigeons down on Market Square

    D                     Am

    She's standing in her underwear

    Am                   G

    Looking down from a hotel room

         D                 Am

    The nightfall will be coming soon


    Am        G

    Oh my my  Oh hell yes

         D                  Am

    You got to put on that party dress

            Am                     G

    It was too cold to cry when I woke up alone

       D                      Am

    I hit my last number and walked to the road




    / Am - G - / D - Am - / x8


    End on last Am
