VERSE E B7 Sweetly takin’ his time… drinkin’ on a straight rye E A Chasin’ it with red wine… heavy on his troubled mind E A Sweetly takin’ his time… tryin’ to make it all right E A E B7 E
Thinkin’ on a woman… thinkin’ on a woman

                   E                  B7
He's tunin' up the CB... "Can anybody hear me?"
                             E                     A
"'Cause I'm headin' down the Number 3... I got deadlines to meet"
              E                    B7
Tunin' up his CB... Hopin' it will free me
              E      A                  E      B7    E
Thinkin' on a woman... thinkin' on that woman

BRIDGE

    E   /   B7   /   E   A   E   B7   E   /

                  E                               B7
He's been singin' sad songs... thinkin' how she's long gone
                         E                                    A
He's treatin' those that love him wrong... he's ornery as the night is long
                  E                               B7
He's been singin' sad songs... thinkin' how she's long gone
                 E      A                  E      B7    E
Thinkin' on that woman... thinkin' on that woman

               E                                B7
Burnin' up the midnight oil... special brand of big-rig toil
                         E                                     A
It's enough to make your blood boil... these mountain roads'll prove my foil
               E                                      B7
Burnin' up the midnight oil... gonna shuffle off this mortal coil
              E      A               E       B7    E
Thinkin' on a woman... thinkin' on a woman
