Joe's Been A Gettin' There Recorded by Johnny Horton Written by Marijohn Wilkin and Grady Martin
C F C There was a Yankee Colonel in 1862 F C G7 C Who fell in Love with a southern belle where the sweet magnolias bloom F C He wondered why folks laughed at him when he went ridin' by F G7 C But little did he know that she was a courtin' on the sly
F C Joe's been a gettin' there Joe's been a flyin' G7 C Joe's been a gettin' there all this time F C Joe's been a gettin' there Joe's been a flyin' G7 C Joe's been a gettin' there beatin' his time
F C He walked her up the mountain he named it to her there F C G7 C He offered her a band of gold and his name to share F C She said that she would marry him and even set the day F G7 C But little did he know that she loved a soldier boy in grey
F C She took the love he offered she took his silver too F C G7 C She took every little thing from the Colonel dressed in blue F C She wouldn't let him hold her in a fond embrace F G7 C And when he tried to kiss his bride she laughed right in his face
F C He woke up one morning and found himself alone F C G7 C And all she left was a letter that said goodbye farewell I'm gone F C No doubt he was a mighty man where the heroes fell F G7 C But all is fare in love and war and he lost his southern belle
