David Allan Coe Lyrics
TITLE "GREENER THAN THE GRASS WE LAID ON" ARTIST "DAVID ALLAN COE" TRANSCRIBE sanoma@ (note) There are some pretty different rthym patterns in this. I also think maybe backed with a 12 string rythm.... I play it on accoustic electric with a bit of reverb (1) (F)I painted quite a picture for the (Bb)girls in her hometown.And she was no exception to the (C)rule. (F)Singin all those songs about the (Bb)places I had been.Made a body feel just like a (C)fool. (2)*SAME PATTERN* She was like the paper bag that Once had held the wine Thrown without no caution to the wind. I left her like the empty bottle lying on the ground. Swearing I would pick her up again. (CHOROUS) (F)she was greener(C)than the grass we(Bb)laid on. (F)underneath that(C)Alabama(F)sun. *SAME PATTERN* I guess she should have known, That old hiway was my home (3) I said she was prettier than Paris in the rain Lord I filled her full of gypsy lies. Swearing I'd be comin back to fetch er in the spring Too ashamed to look her in the eye. She looked about as simple as the cotton dress I'd torn Sneakin in her house at three a m. Her mama liked to question me to death and I was sure Her intuition told her where we'd been (REPEAT CHOROUS) (ADD THIS LINE TO LAST CHOROUS) "SHE NEVER SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO MY SONGS"
