Chris Ledoux - The Last Drive-in guitar chord

THE LAST DRIVE-IN

by Chris LeDoux

G C G D

Caravan of yellow wire, and crawling across the plains

G C G C

Rolling along in a single file, like a slow moving train

G C G D

It rumbled down out of the mist, into the early morning light

G C G C

Said they stay 'til the job was finished, if it took them 'til midnight

G C G D

There were cats & scrapers all caterpillars, packed up by mile high crane

G C G D

And it looked like monsters from the old b movies, the drive-ins use to play

CHORUS

G C

And we'd sang good bye Saturday under the stars

G D

Wake up little Suzy in my daddy's car

G C

So many memories got lost and found

G C

When a piece of history hit the ground

G C G

The day they tore the last drive-in down

G C G D

Memories thick as the smoke clouds they made, man and machine became one

G C G C

Boards snapped like toothpicks on their blades, but to us it sounded like guns

G C G D

Cowboys, soldiers, gangsters, and thieves, James Bond and his golden girls

G C G C

Well you could sit in your car and never turn the key, and go half way around the world

G C G D

And it stood like a landmark for forty years, we never thought we'd live to see

G C G C

It fall it to the ground and then just disappear, like so many childhood dreams

CHORUS

BRIDGE - All on strum

G C

A lot of the drivers had tears in their eyes,

G C

but I don't think it was just the dust

G C G

See I still believe there's a little piece of that old drive-in left in all of us

G C G D

Nobody moved through what seemed like hours, and slow motion it came tumbling down

G C G C

We just stood there with a taste of metal in our mouths and a silence all around

D (One Strum) G (One Strum)

The day they tore the last drive-in down

CHORUS
