Intro: D  

Verse: 
D 
Jayton had a job for seven bucks an hour  

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

Most the time her daddy couldn't stand his own child  
 A 
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 

Verse: 
 D 
He said hey, do you need a ride home 

She said go away, leave me alone 
     A 
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 

        D 
It was rainin' a little and fixin' to storm 

And his mustang jacket looked dry and warm 
         A 
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 
  G 
Thank God he made it over that hill 
  G                       A          D 
That was the moment when Jayton met Jill 

Final: G A D
