Drive in Movies and Dashboard Lights
Words and music by Nanci Griffith
As performed on her album "Storms"
Note: this is as Nanci spelled things on the album...no flames about
my spelling of the word "cuz"!!! :)


F               Bb
Sister had a crystal voice
             F                Bb
She played a Silvertone from Montgomery Ward
F              Bb
Baez songs and Monroe hair
     F                         Bb
She sure could turn the boy's heads to stare
  Am               Dm
Swim wear saunter, tan and haunt them
        Bb                 C
That's all she learned in school
Am                  Dm
Books were for the other girls
          Bb               C
And the other girls were fools
Bb              C
Texas back in '69
      Dm       C             Bb
Was drive-in movies and dashboard lights


F                    Bb
Father waltzed her down the aisle
     F              Bb
Cuz college didn't suit her style
F                        Bb
Sad truth was she could barely read
            F                         Bb
But if you told poor father, well he wouldn't believe you
      Am                  Dm
The telephone rang drove Mother insane
          Bb                 C
With the hearts left on the shelf
    Am                  Dm
Sister's gone and she won't be home
          Bb                 C
Cuz she never took care of herself
Bb            C
Texas back in '69
      Dm       C              Bb
Was drive in movies and dashboard lights


Chorus:
Bb            C
Where is she now?
     F        C        Dm           C
The backseat queen of fraternity
Bb           C
Where is she now?
       F        C        Dm           C
She's heavy of thigh and light on integrity
Bb                   C
Someone should have told her
        F     C          Dm
When beauty's all you offer
     Bb             C                           F       Bb
Too soon the world discovers that your bueaty's gone
F               Bb
(it's gone)


F                          Bb
Mother can't you hear your daughter crying
F                   Bb
Father wake up her youth is dying
    F                          Bb
Her kids are grown...husband's gone away
        F                       Bb
It's a shame cuz she had such a lovely face
Am                  Dm
Can't you see she needed more
      Bb                 C
Than "Oh, what a pretty child!"
Am                    Dm
You never taught her truth from lie
        Bb                C
All you told her was to smile
Bb              C
Texas back in '69
      Dm       C            Bb
Was drive in movies and dashboard lights


Chorus
