David Allan Coe - Heaven Only Knows
Capo 5

G Am D X2

G         Am             D           G
You ainít daddyís little girl anymore
      Am            D     G
Isnít that a cryiní shame
          Am            D      G
With your dreams of California
          Am                 D    Bm
Searchiní for you wealth and fame
                    C        B A G 
I can still see the teardrops
                    D    Bm
Streaminí down your face
               C   B A G 
I can hear you say 
 	                   D                         
Thereís no future in this place.

G      Am            D        G
So you packed your belonginís
        Am                D  Bm
While I stood watched you go
                     C        B A G 
Why I never tried to stop you
            D
Heaven Only Knows.

G Am D X2

G           Am               D         G
Through the years I got some postcards
        Am         D     G
That is all that I recall
        Am               D     G
Telliní me that you were happy
      Am            D    Bm
But I never got one call
                             C       B A G
You thought you knew all the answers
                   D    Bm
When you were seventeen
                          C       B A G 
Someone just sent me your picture
                    D   G
From some dirty magazine
         Am                     D      G
And Iíve heard youíve made some movies
       Am                D   Bm
That I would not care to see
                       C        B A G 
I just know how much I love you
                           D   
That donít mean a thing to me.

G            Am               D        G
I guess your brother felt the same way
            Am              D     G
I could not keep him on the farm
               Am      D       G
They found his body in Chicago
       Am            D     Bm
With a needle in his arm
                    C         B A G
I can still see the teardrops
                   D    Bm
Streaminí down his face
                     C   B A G
I can still hear him say
                          D     
Thereís no future in this place.

G     Am           D         G
So he packed his belonginís
         Am            D   Bm
Like you did once long ago
                     C        B A G 
Why I never tried to stop him
            D
Heaven Only Knows.

G Am D

G       Am               D         G
Now Iím standiní in this graveyard
        Am              D     G
Were we laid your momma down
    Am                   D         G
I recall that preacherís words now
          Am             D     Bm
When they put her in the ground
                             C       B A G
Itís your job to raise these children
                     D    Bm
And I tried to do my best
                             C        B A G
Itís been ten years since we lost her
                        D     Bm
From that cancer in her chest
                   C        B A G
And I can feel the teardrops
                  D    Bm
Streaminí down my face
                          C       B A G 
Lately you know Iíve been thinkiní
                          D    
Thereís no future in this place.

G           Am        D        G
And I would pack my belonginís
       Am              D  Bm
But if got no place to go
                          C      B A G
Why the good Lord doesnít take me 
            D
Heaven Only Knows.

    G         Am             D           G
But you ainít daddyís little girl anymore
      Am                 G
Isnít that a cryiní shame
