G                  D7              C                G 
He painted quite a picture for the girls in my home town 

    C        G                D7 
And I was no exception to the rule 

G                D7              C                G 
Singing all them songs about the places that he’d been 

C                            D7 
Made a body feel just like a fool 


G                   D7             C                 G 
My pride was like a paper bag that once had held the wine 

C              G              D7 
Thrown with no caution to the wind 

G                   D7           C            G 
He left me like the empty bottle lying on the ground 

C                            D7 
Swearing he would pick me up again 


    F             G                 C 
And I was greener than the grass we laid on 

D7                      G 
Underneath that Alabama sun 

  F                   G 
I guess I should have known 

         C               F 
That old highway was his home 

      D7       G        C 
Do-do-do-do-do-do do-do-do 


G                  D7            C            G 
He said that I was prettier than Paris in the rain 

C                 G             D7 
Lord he filled me full of gypsy lies 

G                  D7           C               G 
Swearing that he'd come back to fetch me in the spring 

C                             D7 
Too ashamed to look me in the eye 


     G               D7            C                G 
Well I felt about as simple as the cotton dress I'd torn 

C               G            D7 
Sneaking in the house at 3 a.m. 

G              D7             C               G 
Momma liked to question me to death and I was sure 

C                                D7 
Her intuition told her where I'd been 


    F             G                 C 
And I was greener than the grass we laid on 

D7                      G 
Underneath that Alabama sun 

  F                   G 
I guess I should have known 

         C               F 
That old highway was his home 

      D7       G        C 
Do-do-do-do-do-do do-do-do
