Ten Shades Of Green

Song Author Joe Fitzpatrick og Darrell Wayne Perry Performer: Bobby Mackey Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I was so young I [G7]barely re[C]member
When [F]dad told my [G7]brothers and [C]me  
I [F]can´t make a living down [C]here anymore
So [D7]we´re moving up north to the [G7]city   

[C]All daddy [G7]wanted was a [C]good job
To [F]give us a [G7]life he´d never [C]known
But I [F]knew in his heart he wasn´t [C]happy
He sure missed our [G7]old family [C]home

Where the [F]mountains reach halfway to [C]heaven
And the [G7]air is so sweet and so [C]clean
Where the [F]wild flowers cover the [C]meadows
And the hillsides are [G7]ten shades of [C]green

Now daddy worked [G7]hard for a [C]living
And the [F]years finally [G7]took him [C]away
But I [F]made up my mind the [C]day that he died
My [D7]life wouldn´t end up that [G7]way   

[C]So I´m back to heading [G7]back to old [C]Kentucky
To [F]give my kids a [G7]life I´d once [C]known
[F]Life´s just to short to be un[C]happy
We´re going back to my [G7]old family [C]home

Where the [F]mountains reach halfway to [C]heaven
And the [G7]air is so sweet and so [C]clean
Where the [F]wild flowers cover the [C]meadows
And the hillsides are [G7]ten shades of [C]green

Where the [F]mountains reach halfway to [C]heaven
And the [G7]air is so sweet and so [C]clean
Where the [F]wild flowers cover the [C]meadows
And the hillsides are [G7]ten shades of [C]green

And the hillsides are [G7]ten shades of [C]green


I was so young I barely remember
When dad told my brothers and me
I can´t make a living down here anymore
So we´re moving up north to the city

All daddy wanted was a good job
To give us a life he´d never known
But I knew in his heart he wasn´t happy
He sure missed our old family home

Where the mountains reach halfway to heaven
And the air is so sweet and so clean
Where the wild flowers cover the meadows
And the hillsides are ten shades of green

Now daddy worked hard for a living
And the years finally took him away
But I made up my mind the day that he died
My life wouldn´t end up that way

So I´m back to heading back to old Kentucky
To give my kids a life I´d once known
Life´s just to short to be unhappy
We´re going back to my old family home

Where the mountains reach halfway to heaven
And the air is so sweet and so clean
Where the wild flowers cover the meadows
And the hillsides are ten shades of green

Where the mountains reach halfway to heaven
And the air is so sweet and so clean
Where the wild flowers cover the meadows
And the hillsides are ten shades of green

And the hillsides are ten shades of green
