CAPO: 4th Fret



INTRO: G  C  Em  D  G

                               C
Pretty girl from a Delta town
                               Em
Made to run the gasoline down

Learned a little 'bout many things
    D                           G
Our sweet potato, cotton queen


                                    C
Looks ahead when the whistles blow
                                   Em
A lady knows when it's time to go

Learned to drive on the graveyard streets
    D                       G
And give a smile to all she meets


INTERLUDE: G  C  Em  D  G

 
                                    
Daddy taught her to never look twice
C                                            Em
Say, 'Thank you ma'am' and always look nice
                                  D
Be the best like a football team
                                  G
Scoring against the rivalry, and


                                C
Keep the insides hammered down
                                   
Best performer of the stage in town
  Em
A speck surrounded by soybean fields
D                       G
In the land of red clay wheels


INTERLUDE: G  C  Em  D  G



They say she'd tumble over the pews, and
C                              Em
Go sit with the preacher, too
                                  
Play flute from the choir loft
D                            G
Sing alto and soprano parts



And gaze out at the back church wall
C                                  Em
Stained-glass Jesus standing tall
                                 D
Holding all of his little lambs
                           G
And the whole world in his hands


INSTRUMENTAL: G  C  Em  D  G  (2x)

 

The boys eyed her through the rear-view mirror
C                                      Em
Sucking two straws on Strawberry Hill
                                 
Coming back from a country bridge
   D                                       G
Or throwing rocks from the water's edge



Now she's all packed up in parcelled pillars
      C                                      
She's driving a U-Haul across the Mississippi River
Em                                               D
Lanterns on the levee and a fist full of cotton
                                  G
Old times there will not be forgotten


OUTRO: G  C  Em  D  G  (3x)
