Ten Shades Of Green Recorded by Bobby Mackey Written by Joe Fitzpatrick and Darrell Wayne Perry
C G7 C I was so young I barely remember F G7 C When dad told my brothers and me F C I can’t make a living down here anymore D7 G7 So we’re moving up north to the city
C G7 C All daddy wanted was a good job F G7 C To give us a life he’d never known F C But I knew in his heart he wasn’t happy G7 C He sure missed our old family home
F C Where the mountains reach halfway to heaven G7 C And the air is so sweet and so clean F C Where the wild flowers cover the meadows G7 C And the hillsides are ten shades of green
G7 C Now daddy worked hard for a living F G7 C And the years finally took him away F C But I made up my mind the day that he died D7 G7 My life wouldn’t end up that way
C G7 C So I’m back to heading back to old Kentucky F G7 C To give my kids a life I’d once known F C Life’s just to short to be unhappy G7 C We’re going back to my old family home
Repeat #3 x2
G7 C And the hillsides are ten shades of green
