David Allan Coe - Greener Than The Grass We Laid On guitar chord

David Allan Coe - Greener Than The Grass We Laid On

Capo 1

F C Bb F

I painted quite a picture for the girls in her home town

Bb F C

And she was no exception to the rule

F C Bb F

Singing all them songs about the places I've been

Bb G C

Made a body fell just like a fool

F C Bb F

She was like the paper bag that once had held the wine

Bb F C

Thrown without no caution to the wind

F C Bb F

I left her like the empty bottle lyin' on the ground

Bb G C

Swearin' I'd pick her up again.

D# C Bb

She was Greener Than The Grass We Laid On

C F

Underneath that Alabama sun

D# C

I guess she should have known

Bb D#

That old highway was my home

C Bb C

Do-do-do-do-do-do do-do-do.

F C Bb F

I said she was prettier than Paris in the rain

Bb F C

Lord, I filled her full of gypsy lies

F C Bb F

Swearin' I'd be coming back to fetch her in the Spring

Bb G C

Too ashamed to look her in the eye

F C Bb F

She looked about as simple as the cotton dress I've torn

Bb F C

Sneakin' in her house at 3 A.M.

F C Bb F

Her Momma liked to question me the day after and I was sure

Bb G C

Her intuition told her where we'd been.

D# C Bb

She was Greener Than The Grass We Laid On

C F

Underneath that Alabama sun

D# C

I guess she should have known

Bb D#

That old highway was my home

C F

She should have never listened to my songs, to my songs

Bb

She should have never listened to my songs.
