I'm at a truck stop in New Mexico just before dawn
	    D 			Asus	  
Somebody's grandma behind the wheel of a big rig
Em		    G
Pulling in with her headlights on
G			    D
We smoke a cigarette as the sunrise runs riot
F#m		  G
Someone's got to break the quiet
D
And she says - what are you doing here anyway?
      Asus			A
And I smile and say - you'd never guess
     Em7
She holds it up for me by its skinny white shoulder straps

While I take a picture of my dress

I'm in the bathroom of a Dallas Texas Burger King
D 			Asus	  		Em			      G
Steven Tyler is on the overhead speakers, he doesn't want to miss a thing
		  	    D		
Out there at the counter, I blend in with the lunchtime crowd
F#m		     G
Try not to laugh out loud
D
I eat half my crispy chicken club
Asus
I get extra mayonnaise, it's a mess
Em
I take the other half out to the parking lot with me

Pop the trunk and take a picture of my dress

Four years ago, four years and seven months

It may be a long time before the highway decides to finally set me free
			D	    Asus     Em						G
I'm going to have to chase down the remnants of something special that you stole from me
					D			Em
It may be hiding in the sunset, or in distant corners of the dawn
G		Gm
Or maybe it's gone

	D
But I say some prayers above the engine
	Asus			A
I bless everything there is to bless
  	   Em
Run out of gas in the middle of nowhere anyway

Stand by the roadside smiling

And take a picture of my dress
