David Allan Coe - Song For The Year 2000 guitar chord

David Allan Coe

Song For The Year 2000

“I was ah readin’ an article in a magazine

from France recently and ah they was talkin’

about David Allan Coe as a songwriter and ah.

They were sayin’ how ah my song, Jack Daniel’s,

If You Please, that I wrote in 1956, ah really changed

country music back in the 60’s and then in the 70’s

you know and Divers Do It Deeper and Take This Job and

Shove It and different songs that I wrote. This guy

was sayin’ that, he was wonderin what David Allan Coe

would be writtin’ by the year 2000 that would be

so different and unusual then whatever everyone

else was doin’. So I call this a Song For The Year

2000.”

But it takes all kinds of people, to make the world go round

It takes all kinds of people, to make the world go round

The world go round, the world go round

C F

It takes all kinds of people, to make the world go round

F Bb

Michael’s taking hormone, treatments once again

C F

Michael’s taking hormone, treatments once again

Chorus:

F Bb

Stella was flat chested, she always stayed at home

C F

Stella saved her money up, and bought some silicon

Now the boys all stare at Stella’s chest and they won’t leave her alone

C F

Stella saved her money up just to buy some silicone
