 Diesel Drivin’ Daddy 
 Aaron Watson 
  
  
  	    A 
 Well my truck’s wound up and it’s ready to roll 
  	 D 
 I got a good buddy workin’ for the Highway Patrol 
       E 	  	  	  	  	    A 
 So if I get a ticket or two, It’s gonna be alright 
  	   A 
 But the sheriff and his boys they’re in Estilline 
  	  	 D 
 Unless they’re out to lunch at the Dairy Queen 
            E 
 They’ll be itchin’ to turn on those red, white, and blue  
  A 
 lights 
  
  
 A 
 Well just like my daddy I was born a drifter 
 D 
 I got a rebel heart and eight - ball shifter 
 E 	  	  	  	     A 
 Horns on the hood and forty channel CB 
  
 Well some things you never leave home without 
 D 
 Like your Bible, log book, and your drivin’ route 
 E 	  	  	       A 
 And your Best Of Dale Watson on CD 
  
  
 Chorus: 
  	       E 	              D 
 Cause I’m a diesel drivin’ daddy 
  	       A 
 Don’t you get in my lane 
  	       E 	           D 
 Puttin’ the pedal to the medal 
  	     A 
 Bringin’ eighteen wheels of pain 
  	        D 
 I’ve been in love 
  	      E 
 Broke some hearts 
  	  	    A 	  	  	  D 
 Settled down long enough to replace the parts 
  	     D 
 Kicked a little 
 E 	  	   A 
 Asphalt along the way 
  
  
 There’s a lonely life livin’ on the road 
 When the only friend you’ve got is the radio 
 And even he fades in and out every now and then 
 But maybe someday you’ll find the right one 
 That'll shift the gears and let ya ride shotgun 
 Knows how to get that big ole rig to spin 
  
  
 Chorus 
  
  
 A 
 I’m a panhandlin’ manhandlin’ 
  	  	  	  	         D 
 Post holin’ high rollin’ dust bowlin’ daddy 
 E 
 I ain’t got no blood in my veins 
  
 I just got them four lanes 
  	  	   A 
 Of hard Amarillo highway 
  
  
 Chorus 
  
         E 	  	 D 	 A 
 Up and down that honky tonkin’ highway 
  
  
 They end the song by playing these chords pretty quick, so just use barre chords. 
 F#, G, G#, A, A

That 5th line where you couldn't figure the words is "That can shift the gears and let ya ride shotgun"

anyways.. Great tab!

I just saw him play at the hall tonight and was wondering if anyone knew
how to play the little truck sound he makes before the song...
kinda dumb but just fun to play when you're kickin it with some people
around.

And sorry, I'm a grammarholic.

It's "put the petal to the metal" not "medal"
