Standing By The Rambler chords

Walt Wilkins

Key: 

  			E 
Well, your daddy, he was tan and tall 
      A 
Hes about to transfer to Tech in the fall 
       E 
He was strong and lean but cool and all 
B      
From playin junior college ball 
E 
Not like you, picture him now 
      A 
Kinda soft in the middle, lines in his brow 
E 
Always distracted and worried bout how 
B 
You and your baby sister might turn out 

 1: 

    A                 B                     E 
The world was so new, he just spent all his savings 
        A                        B                     E 
Hed be standing by the rambler, smilin at the camera waving 

Look at your momma, when she was 18 
Deep shiny dish of peaches and cream 
No offense man, but she was a schoolboys dream 
Bedroom eyes and movie star teeth 

That was before you little monsters came along 
With your cryin and your whinin and your clownin around 
Before she knew shed be trading the nights downtown 
For Pampers and puppies and chicken by the pound 

 2: 

The world was so new and they just started dating 
They were standing by the rambler, smilin at the camera waving 

Bridge: 
Bm 
Waving to the folks, they were headed to the beach 
      F#m 
For a day in the sun, a night in the backseat 
Bm 
Yeah they did that too 
A                          B  
How do you think they came up with you  

Solo 

Hey now look at your daddys hand on your mommas thigh 
And the mischief is gleaming shinin in their eyes 
Thats you, dude, youre in that picture too 
Just 9 sure months before they had the first clue 

About a love turns out, if you see it thru 
The hard work, the heartaches, the good times too 
A chance to find love and pass things on 
Like your mommas good looks and your daddys old car 

 3:
 
And the world was so new, its still cryin from its spankin 
And youre standing by the Rambler, smilin at the camera waving 

Outro: 
Yeah the world was so new, its still cryin from its spankin 
And youre standing by the Rambler, smilin at the camera waving 

Youre standing by the Rambler, smilin at the camera waving 
Youre standing by the Rambler, smilin at the camera waving
