Jayton And Jill chords

Zane Williams


Capo: 2st fret


Intro: D  

Jayton had a job for seven bucks an hour  

At the fillin' station by the water tower 
Just checkin' oil and fixin' flats 
 G                                       D 
The kind of kid most folks just look past 
Jill was the local preacher's kid gone wild 

Most the time her daddy couldn't stand his own child  
He'd quote the scripture with an angry shout 
     G                                              D                       
And list her all the reasons she would never turn out 

          G                     D 
She was drunk one night on the fourth of July  
 A                          Bm   
Parked in a pasture with an out-of-town guy  
G                 D 
He got mad when she said no 
        Em               G 
And he tore her Sunday dress 
         G                    D 
She was wanderin' alone on a county road 
          A                    Bm 
When the lights came over the hill 
  G                       A          D 
That was the moment when Jayton met Jill 

He said hey, do you need a ride home 

She said go away, leave me alone 
But he noticed the bruise and the frightened tears  
           G                                         D                          
Said there ain't no way in Hell I'm leavin' you out here 

It was rainin' a little and fixin' to storm 

And his mustang jacket looked dry and warm 
So she let him wrap it 'round her and she climbed inside  
  G                                  D  
Sayin' OK I guess thanks for the ride 

      G                     D 
At an all-night diner they waited out the storm 
A                      Bm 
Ended up talking right up 'til dawn 
 G                              D 
By the time he dropped her off safe at home 
       Em             G 
Neither one felt so alone 
  G             D 
Two lost souls found a connection  
         A                    Bm 
that's blessin' both of them still  
G                   A          D 
On that night when Jayton met Jill 

G D A Bm G D Em G 

     G                           D 
And what Jayton never told her about that night 
            A                   Bm 
Is how he'd taken his dad's old 45 
             G                       D  
He'd been drivin' 'round thinkin' how no one would miss him  
    Em              G 
If he just ended it all 
G                     D 
He couldn't see past his own pain 
         A                        Bm 
'Til he saw a pretty girl walkin' in the rain 
Thank God he made it over that hill 
  G                       A          D 
That was the moment when Jayton met Jill 

Final: G A D
