David Allan Coe - Atlanta Song guitar chord

David Allan Coe - Atlanta Song

Capo 1

D

I met her in Atlanta

G

She was a-dancing in a cafe

D

With a price tag on her body

A

And a tombstone in her eye

D

You could tell she was not happy

G

By the way she kept on staring

D

Past the other side of nowhere

A D

At a man she'd like to try.

G

And the make-up she had painted

Could not hide the youthful motions

D

Of her body

From the music or the crowd

I stared like all others

G

With my right hand in my pocket

A

While she showed us

D

Everything the law allowed.

D G A D X2

D

Twenty bucks an hour later

G

My one-bedroom apartment

A

I was feelin’ weak

D

From all the seeds I'd sown

She was sweet, she was gentle

G

As she introduced my body

D

To some pleasures

It had never ever known.

G

When I woke up in the morning

She was a-laying there beside me

D

Like a kitten

A D

With her face turned to the sun

And a look of satisfaction

G

On her lips that made me wonder

A

If she ever felt ashamed

D

Of what we'd done.

D

So I left her in Atlanta

G

She was a-dancing in cafe

D

With a price tag on her body

A

And a tomestone in her eye

D

And I guess she still ain't happy

G

By the way she keeps on staring

D

Past the other side of nowhere.
