Fool's Paradise
Recorded by Jim Reeves
Written by Johnny Bond

C G7
As I write this letter to you darlin'
I can't hold the teardrops from my eyes
C7 F
For at sundown I will lay a-dyin'
G7 C
At the door of the Fool's Paradise

Rode into this cattle town this mornin'
Left my herd to check the market price
C7 F
And I walked into the nearest barroom
G7 C
They call it the Fool's Paradise

There the crowd was gay and girls were dancin'
And the men were playin' cards and dice
C7 F
So I stepped up to the bar to join them
G7 C
What a grand place this Fool's Paradise

Am Em G7
It was then I showed to them your picture
Em Am
I passed it around once or twice
Then a man insulted your sweet honor
G7 C
At the bar of the Fool's Paradise


So I slapped his face and I told him
G7 F
I said you eat 'em words mister or draw that's my advice
And he said well somebody might get hurt inside
But I'll be glad to meet you in the street at sundown
G7 C
At sundown in front of the Fool's Paradise

So goodbye my darlin' may God bless you
I will go to make this sacrifice
C7 F
And if ever you visit old Dodge City
G7 C
Remember the Fool's Paradise
