David Allan Coe - The Punkin Center Barn Dance guitar chord

David Allan Coe - The Punkin Center Barn Dance

Capo 1

F

He came from Kentucky

Bb

Least ways that's what I've been told

C

Me and fate had left that state

F

Before his corpse got cold

He'd been killed for gold

Bb

When California could be sold

C

To any fool who had been told

F

About the Punkin Center Barn Dance.

F

Mama had the fever

Bb

And my Daddy sold his soul

C

To someone called the devil

F

That he'd met along life's road

Dad would stop to drink a toast

Bb

And Mom was looking like a ghost

C

Was gonna beat us to the coast

F

And the Punkin Center Barn Dance.

Chorus:

Bb

At the Punkin Center Barn Dance

F

That's where everyone would be

Bb

Dancing to Virginia's Reel

G C

And the Waltz of Tennessee

F

When the roll is called up yonder

Bb F

You can hear the angels sing

At the Punkin Center Barn Dance

C F

God is gold, the grass is green.

F

Yeah, I left California

Bb

Just before the Grateful Dead

C

Told the truth about the gold

F

I'd searched for in my head

Like my Dad I'd roamed the land

Bb

And Mom could never understand

C

How Lucifer could bring a man

F

To the Punkin Center Barn Dance.

F

Well, times are changin', poets say

Bb C

Since Mom and Dad both passed away

But some things in this life

F

Will never change

The poets write of things to come

Bb

The Earth will melt into the Sun

C

And you and I will be the ones

F

At the Punkin Center Barn Dance.

Chorus: X2
