How To Play

CAPO: 2nd Fret
 
 
INTRO: C  F  G  C  (x2)
 
 
C                                       F               C
I've lived with the decent folks in the hills of old Vermont
C                            G
Where what you do all day, depends on what you want
     C                                      F             C
And I took up with a full grown man, though I was still a kid
C                                        G              C
And I smile like the sun to think of the loving that we did
 
 
C                                            F                C
He rose each morning and went to work and he kept me with his pay
     C                                G
Well, I was making love all night and playing guitar all day
          C                                    F                C
And I made apple cider and home-made bread, to make the man say grace
C                                        G             C
In a house that he built by hand, with a warm feet fireplace
 
 
CHORUS
F               C
  Yankee man so good to me
G                   C
  Yankee man just a memory
F               C
  Yankee man so good to me
G                F         C
  The memory is enough for me
 
 
INTERLUDE: C  F  G  C
 
 
C                                       F               C
An autumn walk on a country road with a million flaming trees
     C                                     G
Well, I was feeling uneasy, Lord, there was winter in the breeze
            C                               F                   C
And he said, "Oh baby, look over there, the birds are southward bound
C                          G                C
Oh baby, I am so afraid to lose the love we found"
 
 
CHORUS
F               C
  Yankee man so good to me
G                   C
  Yankee man just a memory
F               C
  Yankee man so good to me
G                F         C
  The memory is enough for me
 
 
INTERLUDE: C  F  G  C  (x2)
 
 
C                                       F               C
I've lived with the decent folks in the hills of old Vermont
C                            G
Where what you do all day, depends on what you want
     C                                      F             C
And I took up with a full grown man, though I was still a kid
C                                        G              C
And I smile like the sun to think of the loving that we did
C                                        G                  C
And I smile like the sun to think of the loving that we did
C                                        G              C
And I smile like the sun to think of the loving that we did
 
 
OUTRO: C  F  G  C  (x4)
