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
