Wild Ride - Dwight Yoakam

Intro: / A /

A            A
I walked in, there sat Slim
A                                A
Cleaning up his memory with some sapphire gin.
    E               A    E          A
Mr. Pain grabbed my arm, pulled me aside
           D                          E
And said, “Kid, are you ready for the wild ride?”

A            A
I looked up, there she stood, I said, 
        A                         A
“If you didn’t look so great, I’d say you look good.”
E            A            E     A
She took her hand, ran it up my thigh,
           D                         E
And said, “Cowboy, you ready for the wild ride?”

Chorus:
                              A
Come on now, Junior, take the wild ride
                            A
See, can you make it on the wild ride
                            E
Don’t try no shakin’ on the wild ride
                                    A            A
`Cause things start breakin’ on the wild ride

A                      A
Layin’ on the highway, I saw my mind
   A                              A
In tiny little pieces thrown from side to side.
   E         A           E            A
My heart was shattered, along with my pride 
D                                E
 Guess you can’t keep ‘em on the wild ride

Chorus:
                              A
Come on now, Junior, take the wild ride
                            A
See, can you make it on the wild ride
                            E
Don’t try no shakin’ on the wild ride
                                    A
`Cause things start breakin’ on the wild ride

Chorus Solo: / A / A / E / A / x2  Then:  / A /

      A                           A
I was crawlin’ cross the floor, I tried to leave, when I
A                               A
Felt something tuggin’ what was left of my sleeve
          E      A            E           A
I heard a little voice with a gold-plated vibe
       D                         E
Sayin’ I bought a ticket for the wild ride

Chorus:
                          A
Come on, Junior, take the wild ride
                           A
See, can we make it on the wild ride
                             E
Let’s try to shake it on the wild ride
                              A
We might just break it on the wild ride

                          A
Come on, Junior, take the wild ride
                            A
See, can we make it on the wild ride
                            E
Let’s try to shake it on the wild ride
                              A
We might just break it on the wild ride

                                  A
Come on, come on take me on the wild ride
                          A
See can we make it on the wild ride.
                            E
Come on and shake me on the wild ride.
                               A
You might just break me on the wild ride.
