Grit and Grime

INTRO
VERSE
Fifteen miles outta Jackson, Tennessee
Woman in a white Corvette staring at me
I’m thinking—she must be out of her mind
Lady you don’t know what’s behind these eyes

CHORUS
‘Cause I’ve seen bad and I’ve seen good
I’ve been underneath the hood
And there ain’t much left of me
But the grit and grime

VERSE
She motioned me to-ward the exit sign
This fool will follow every time
Biggest mistake of her life
‘Cause she’s—got no idea what‘s behind these eyes

CHORUS
Yeah, I’ve seen bad and I’ve seen good
I’ve been underneath the hood
And there ain’t much left of me
But the grit and grime

BRIDGE
So I’ll give her what she wants
Leave her wanting more
And save a little bit for the next one down the line

(Instrumental)

CHORUS
Yeah, I’ve seen bad and I’ve seen good
I’ve been underneath the hood
And there ain’t much left of me
But the grit and grime

TAG
Sixty miles out of Nashville Tennessee
Woman in a Coup De Ville---staring at me-yeah
