[Verse 1] (With intro riff over D and A)
      D                                 A
I was raised off of rural route 3, out past where the blacktop ends,
D     
We'd walk to church on Sunday morn
        G       
and race barefoot back to Johnson's Fence
D
That's where I first saw Mary,
A
On that roadside picking blackberries,
Bm                           G                      
that summer I turned a corner in my soul
         A         D        
down that red dirt road,
 
 
[Chorus]
D
It's where I drank my first beer,
A
It's where I found Jesus,
Bm
Where I wrecked my first car
  G
I tore it all to pieces,
D
I learned the path to heaven,
C#/A
It's full of sinners and believers,
Bm
Learned that happiness on earth,
      G
Ain't just for high achievers,
     Em                    F#m                       
I've learned, I've come to know,
               G            
There's life at both ends 
A                D                
Of that red dirt road,

e|---------------------|
B|-/10-----------------| This is played at the end 
G|-----11--11h12p11----| of the first chorus and hints
D|------------------12-| at the lead coming later in the 
A|---------------------| song.
E|---------------------|
  
[Verse 2] 
Her daddy didn't like me much, 
In my shackled up GTO,
I'd sneak out in the middle of the night,
Throw rocks at her bedroom window,
We'd turn out the headlights,
Drive by the moonlight,
Talk about what the future might hold,
Down that red dirt road,
 
[Lead Over D A Bm G] 
e|---------------------------------------|--------------------------------|
B|-/10-----------------------------------|-/10----10-12-12-12-15-15-17-19-|

[Bridge]
     Em             F#m
I went out into the world,
      G      
And I came back in,
Em     F#m
I lost Mary,
     G       
Oh I got her back again 
Em               F#m
And driving home tonight
                    G          A    Asus                    
Feels like I found a long lost friend,
D
It's where I drank my first beer,
C#/A
It's where I found Jesus,
Bm
Where I wrecked my first car
  G
I tore it all to pieces,
D
I learned the path to heaven,
C#/A
It's full of sinners and believers,
Bm
Learned that happiness on earth,
      G
Ain't just for high achievers,
     Em                    F#m                        
I've learned, I've come to know,
               G            
There's life at both ends 
A                D                
Of that red dirt road,
