David Allan Coe - Heaven Only Knows guitar chord

David Allan Coe - Heaven Only Knows

Capo 5

G Am D X2

G Am D G

You ain’t daddy’s little girl anymore

Am D G

Isn’t that a cryin’ shame

Am D G

With your dreams of California

Am D Bm

Searchin’ for you wealth and fame

C B A G

I can still see the teardrops

D Bm

Streamin’ down your face

C B A G

I can hear you say

D

There’s no future in this place.

G Am D G

So you packed your belongin’s

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

Tellin’ 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 I’ve heard you’ve 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 don’t mean a thing to me.

G Am D X2

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

Streamin’ down his face

C B A G

I can still hear him say

D

There’s no future in this place.

G Am D G

So he packed his belongin’s

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 I’m standin’ in this graveyard

Am D G

Were we laid your momma down

Am D G

I recall that preacher’s words now

Am D Bm

When they put her in the ground

C B A G

It’s your job to raise these children

D Bm

And I tried to do my best

C B A G

It’s 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

Streamin’ down my face

C B A G

Lately you know I’ve been thinkin’

D

There’s no future in this place.

G Am D G

And I would pack my belongin’s

Am D Bm

But if got no place to go

C B A G

Why the good Lord doesn’t take me

D

Heaven Only Knows.

G Am D G

But you ain’t daddy’s little girl anymore

Am G

Isn’t that a cryin’ shame
