Makeup And Faded Blue Jeans

Song Author Merle Haggard Performer: Merle Haggard Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]In downtown Modesto I was workin' the Holiday [F]Inn  
I was [C]set with a gig that would last us though out the week[G7]end   
I was [C]singing a new song I wrote on the way into [F]town
When she [C]came in the front door [G7]I found her a place to sit [C]down

Hey I knew right away that she liked the words to my [F]song
Cause she [C]stared at the guitar followed my fingers too [G7]long   
And [C]she had the likeness of a girl I'd seen in a [F]dream
But [C]lights can do wonders with [G7]makeup and faded blue [C]jeans

And the last thing I needed was somebody messin' up my [F]mind
So I [C]found a hundred reasons for lookin' away one more [G7]time   
She could [C]cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with [F]guitars
And to [C]blow all my chances at [G7]bein' a big singin' [C]star

With one passin' glance I could tell she was young for her [F]age  
Yeah she [C]got to lookin' better as she got down closer to the [G7]stage
And as she [C]sipped on her wine I knew just the kind she would [F]be  
And [C]somehow I knew she was [G7]here to do bad things to [C]me  

And the last thing I needed was somebody messin' up my [F]mind
So I [C]found a hundred reasons for lookin' away one more [G7]time   
She could [C]cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with [F]guitars
And to [C]blow all my chances at [G7]bein' a big singin' [C]star


I was right she could cause me to sing bad
And fall out of love with [F]guitars
And [C]blow all my chances at [G7]bein' a big singin' [C]star


In downtown Modesto I was workin' the Holiday Inn
I was set with a gig that would last us though out the weekend
I was singing a new song I wrote on the way into town
When she came in the front door I found her a place to sit down

Hey I knew right away that she liked the words to my song
Cause she stared at the guitar followed my fingers too long
And she had the likeness of a girl I'd seen in a dream
But lights can do wonders with makeup and faded blue jeans

And the last thing I needed was somebody messin' up my mind
So I found a hundred reasons for lookin' away one more time
She could cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with guitars
And to blow all my chances at bein' a big singin' star

With one passin' glance I could tell she was young for her age
Yeah she got to lookin' better as she got down closer to the stage
And as she sipped on her wine I knew just the kind she would be
And somehow I knew she was here to do bad things to me

And the last thing I needed was somebody messin' up my mind
So I found a hundred reasons for lookin' away one more time
She could cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with guitars
And to blow all my chances at bein' a big singin' star

I was right she could cause me to sing bad
And fall out of love with guitars
And blow all my chances at bein' a big singin' star
