Greener Than The Grass We Laid On
Written and recorded by David Allan Coe

C G7 F C
I painted quite a picture for the girls in her hometown
F C G7
And she was no exception to the rule
C G7 F C
Singin' all them songs about the places that I've been
F Dm G7
Made a body feel just like a fool

C G7 F C
She was like a paper bag that once had held the wine
F C G7
Thrown without no caution to the wind
C G7 F C
I left her like the empty bottle lyin' on the ground
F Dm G7
Swearin' I'd pick her up again

A#7 C F
She was greener than the grass we laid on
G7 C
Underneath that Alabama sun
A#7 C F A#7
I guess she should have known that ol' highway was my home
G7 C F
To-do-do to-do-do do-do-do

C G7 F C
I said she was prettier than Paris in the rain
F C G7
Lord I filled her full of gypsy lies
C G7 F C
Swearin' I'd be coming back to fetch her in the spring
F Dm G7
Too ashamed to look her in the eye

C G7 F C
She looked about as simple as the cotton dress I've torn
F C G7
Sneakin' in her house at 3 a.m.
C G7 F C
Her momma liked to questioned me to death and I was sure
F D7 G7
Her intuition told her where we'd been


A#7 C F
She was greener than the grass we laid on
G7 C
Underneath that Alabama sun
A#7 C F A#7
I guess she should have known that ol' highway was my home
Gm C
She should've never listened to my songs to my songs
F
She should've never listened to my songs
A#7 Gm C F A#7 Gm C F
To-do-do to-do-do do do-do-do to-do-do-to-do-do do-do-do
A#7 Gm C
do-do-do do-do-do
