Fool's Paradise Recorded by Jim Reeves Written by Johnny Bond
C G7 As I write this letter to you darlin' F C 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
G7 Rode into this cattle town this mornin' F C 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
G7 There the crowd was gay and girls were dancin' F C 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 C F C 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 C And he said well somebody might get hurt inside F But I'll be glad to meet you in the street at sundown G7 C At sundown in front of the Fool's Paradise
G7 So goodbye my darlin' may God bless you F C I will go to make this sacrifice C7 F And if ever you visit old Dodge City G7 C Remember the Fool's Paradise
