Almost Got Hit By A Truck
Yip / Jump Music (1983)

I was walking across the bridge
Going to my friend's house
When I was crossing the road
A truck almost ran me down
Ran me down ran me down oh oh
Oh I'm so sad

And I know you'll be glad when I find my way
Find my way oh oh
I was walking on my way to work
The same day I wasn't looking
And I was in the middle of the street
And a truck almost hit me
Almost hit me almost hit me oh oh
Oh I'm not so bad
Please don't be mad

I'm finding my way, finding my way oh oh
Got to stay along the straight and narrow
Stand off the obstacle course
Or something's liable to happen
Like a truck will run you right over
Run you right down
Run you right over oh oh
Oh I'm so glad

And I know that you'll be glad
If I find my way
Find my way oh oh

Almost got hit by a truck
Almost got hit by a truck
Almost got hit by a truck
Almost got hit by a truck

A truck almost ran me down

Ran me down ran me down oh

 

B      F#     Ebm

Oh I'm so sad

B         F#                 Ebm

And I know you'll be glad

When I find my way

B                        F#

Find my way oh oh

 

(verse lick)

I was walking on my way to work

The same day I wasn't looking

And I was in the middle of the street

And a truck almost hit me

Almost hit me almost hit me oh oh

 

(chorus chords)

Oh I'm not so bad

Please don't be mad

I'm finding my way,

Finding my way oh oh

 

(verse lick)

Got to stay along the straight and narrow

Stand off the obstacle course

Or something's liable to happen

Like a truck will run you right over

Run you right down

Run you right over oh oh

 

(chorus chords)

Oh I'm so glad

And I know that you'll be glad

If I find my way

Find my way oh oh

 

(verse lick)

Almost got hit by a truck

Almost got hit by a truck

Almost got hit by a truck

Almost got hit by a truck

 

Abm

 

This version in G is easier to play on guitar. The lick is the same, just move everything up a fret. (b-c-c#-d-g    f-e)  Use these chord substitutions for the chorus.

 

C      G     Em

Oh I'm so sad

C         G                   G

And I know you'll be glad

            Am

When I find my way

C                        G

Find my way oh oh
