HERE'S THE CHORDED VERSION ON THUNDER ROAD
TRANSPOSED BY RICK BENSON


THE BALLAD OF THUNDER ROAD 
BY ROBERT MITCHUM 
C
NOW LET ME TELL THE STORY, I CAN TELL IT ALL 
G                                                                             
              C
ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN BOY WHO RAN ILLEGAL ALCOHOL

HIS DADDY MADE THE WHISKEY, SON, HE DROVE THE LOAD
G
WHEN HIS ENGINE ROARED, 
                                                                        C
THEY CALLED THE HIGHWAY THUNDER ROAD. 
C
SOMETIMES INTO ASHVILLE, SOMETIMES MEMPHIS TOWN
            G
THE REVENOORS CHASED HIM BUT THEY COULDN'T RUN HIM 
C
DOWN
C
EACH TIME THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD HIM, 

HIS ENGINE WOULD EXPLODE
G
HE'D GO BY LIKE THEY WERE STANDIN' STILL ON THUNDER 
C
ROAD.
                                 CHORUS
C                                  F                                C
AND THERE WAS THUNDER, THUNDER OVER THUNDER ROAD
G
THUNDER WAS HIS ENGINE, AND WHITE LIGHTNING WAS HIS 

C
LOAD

                                F                                             
     C
THERE WAS MOONSHINE, MOONSHINE TO QUENCH THE DEVIL'S THIRST
             G
THE LAW THEY SWORE THEY'D GET HIM, BUT THE DEVIL GOT 
            C
HIM FIRST.
C
ON THE FIRST OF APRIL, NINETEEN FIFTY-FOUR
          G                                                       
A FEDERAL MAN SENT WORD HE'D BETTER MAKE HIS RUN NO 
C
MORE

HE SAID TWO HUNDRED AGENTS WERE COVERIN' THE STATE
              G               
WHICHEVER ROAD HE TRIED TO TAKE, THEY'D GET HIM SURE AS 
       C
FATE.

SON, HIS DADDY TOLD HIM, MAKE THIS RUN YOUR LAST
               G                           
YOUR TANK IS FILLED WITH HUNDRED-PROOF, 
                                                    C
YOU'RE ALL TUNED UP AND GASSED

NOW, DON'T TAKE ANY CHANCES, IF YOU CAN'T GET THROUGH
            G                            
I'D RATHER HAVE YOU BACK AGAIN THAN ALL THAT MOUNTAIN 

C
DEW
CHORUS

ROARIN' OUT OF HARLAN, REVVING' UP HIS MILL
          G       
HE SHOT THE GAP AT CUMBERLAND, 
                                               C
AND SCREAMED BY MAYNORDSVILLE

WITH G-MEN ON HIS TAILLIGHTS, ROADBLOCKS UP AHEAD
                G                                                          
THE MOUNTAIN BOY TOOK ROADS THAT EVEN ANGELS FEARED 
              C
TO TREAD.

BLAZING' RIGHT THROUGH KNOXVILLE, OUT ON KINGSTON PIKE
             G                       
THEN RIGHT OUTSIDE OF BEARDON, THEY MADE THE FATAL 
    C
STRIKE

HE LEFT THE ROAD AT NINETY, THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO SAY
          G                                         
THE DEVIL GOT THE MOONSHINE AND THE MOUNTAIN BOY 
             C
THAT DAY

CHORUS
