Yankee Lady chords
Jesse Winchester    

A Asus4 4x

  A
I lived with the decent folks 
       D               A
In the hills of old Vermont 

Where what you do all day 
  E
Depends on what you want 
      A
And I took up with a woman there 
       D             A
Though I was still a kid 

And I smile like the sun 
                    E              A   A Asus4
To think of all the loving that we did 

    A
She rose each morning and went to work 
        D                A
And she kept me with her pay 

I was making sweet love all night 
    E                  
And playing guitar all day 
          A
And I got apple cider and homemade bread 
   D              A
to make a man say grace 

And clean linens on my bed 
      E              A   A Asus4
And a warm feet fire place 

D              A
Yankee lady so good to me 
E                  A
Yankee lady just a memory 
D              A
Yankee lady so good to me 
         E           A           A Asus4
Your memory, that s enough for me 

A
An autumn walk on a country road 
       D               A
With a million flaming trees 

I was feeling uneasy 
                E
Cause there was winter in the breeze 
               A
And she said, "Oh Jesse, look over there, 
    D                   A
the birds are southward bound 
A
Oh Jesse, I'm so afraid 
   E                        A    Asus4 A  A7
to lose the love that we've found 

D              A
Yankee lady so good to me 
E                  A
Yankee lady just a memory 
D              A
Yankee lady so good to me 
         E           A           A Asus4
Your memory, that s enough for me 

A E A

A
I don't know what called to me 
      D           A
But I know had to go 

I left Vermont town 
       E
With a lift to Mexico 
A
And now when I see myself 
     D              A
As a stranger by my birth 

Yankee lady's memory 
  E              A    A7
Reminds me of my worth 

D              A
Yankee lady so good to me 
E                  A
Yankee lady just a memory 
D              A
Yankee lady so good to me 
         E           A           A Asus4
Your memory, that s enough for me
