Where Grass Won't Grow Recorded by George Jones with Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Trisha Yearwood Written by Earl Montgomery
C F C The dirt was clay and was color of the blood in me F G7 A twelve acre farm on a ridge in south Tennessee Am G7 F We left our sweat all over that land behind a mule G7 C We watched grow o-ld row after row F G7 C Trying to grow corn and cotton on ground so poor that grass won't grow
F C There was one old store in the holler we all called town F G7 It belonged to a gentle old man named Henry Brown Am G7 F He gave us credit in the winter time so we could live G7 C Through the cold when the winds brought snow F G7 C Trying to grow corn and cotton on ground so poor that grass won't grow
F C Oh the one I loved walked through those fields with me F G7 She was a hard working woman true as one could be Am G7 F Oh but then one year death was going round and swiftly G7 C Took it's toll Janie had to go F G7 C Now she lies asleep under ground so poor that grass won't grow
F C As I stand here looking over this part of Tennessee F G7 The fields are bare as far as the eye can see Am G7 F And over the grave where Janie lies there's a beautiful G7 C Sight to behold and no one knows F G7 C Why there's flowers growing on ground so poor that grass won't grow F G7 C Now there's flowers growing on ground so poor that grass won't grow
