How To Play

CAPO: 4th Fret
 
 
 
INTRO: D
 
                      G       D
Brand new shoes, they hurt my feet
                  A        D
This lace collar's choking me
               G      D
Cutting off my air supply
               A       D
When I hang my head to cry
               A       D
When I hang my head to cry
 
 
               G       D
I see tears on Daddy's face
                    A      D
Someone's humming "Amazing Grace"
                   G         D
Rain beats on this graveside tent
                   A     D
Preacher says, "He did repent."
                   A     D
Preacher says, "He did repent."
 
 
PRE-CHORUS:
        A              D
They've got him laying there in pinstripes 
G                  D       A
How'd they get him in that suit?
  G                   D
I guess the lord will recognize him
                A        D
Without his overalls and mule
 
 
CHORUS
A               D
They all say he looks so natural
    G              D         A
But all I see is a cold dark hole
  G                 D
I won't commit this day to memory
                       A      D
That ain't the Grandpa that I know
                       A      D       G D    A D
That ain't the Grandpa that I know
 
 
                G          D
A tractor never pulled his plough
                         A          D
He walked and cussed and loved that ground
                        G     D
His hand sowed each and every seed
                       A         D
He'd pray for rain and fight the weeds
                       A         D
He'd pray for rain and fight the weeds
 
 
                              G        D
He said, "The simple life, it suits me fine."
                         A      D
Never dreamed beyond the county line
                G       D
Grandma was his boyhood bride
                      A      D
He'll be there in her arms tonight
                         A      D
He'll sleep there in her arms tonight
 
 
PRE-CHORUS:
        A              D
They've got him laying there in pinstripes 
G                  D       A
How'd they get him in that suit?
  G                   D
I guess the lord will recognize him
                A        D
Without his overalls and mule
 
 
CHORUS
A               D
They all say he looks so natural
    G              D         A
But all I see is a cold dark hole
  G                 D
I won't commit this day to memory
                       A      D
That ain't the Grandpa that I know
 
 
CHORUS
     A               D
They played a pretty organ number
G                D         A
Swore it was his favourite tune
    G            D
But I know he preferred a fiddle
              A      D
Playing Carol County blues
 
 
CHORUS
A               D
They all say he looks so natural
    G              D         A
But all I see is a cold dark hole
  G                 D
I won't commit this day to memory
                       A      D
That ain't the Grandpa that I know
                       A      D
That ain't the Grandpa that I know
 
 
OUTRO: D   G  D     A   D
