John Deere Green 2

Joe Diffie

The first person to submit this did an excellent job. I just added a couple
of chords, plus the bridge and key changes.
 G
 They were farm kids way down in Dixie
 CG
 They met in high school in the sixties
 D7
Everyone knew it was love from the start
 G
One July in the midnight hour
 CG
 He climbed upon the water tower
 D7CD
Stood on the rail and painted a ten foot heart 
Chorus
 EmDC
In John Deere Green
 GDC
 On a hot summer night
 EmDC
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
 GDC
 In letters three foot high
 Em
And the whole town said
 D
that he should’ve used red
 GDC
But it looked good to Charlene
 EmDG
in John Deere Green
They settled down on eighty acres
Raising sweet corn, kids and tomatoes
They went together like a hand and a glove
On a clear day from their front yard
He you look and know what to look for
Off to the east you can still read his words of love
Repeat chorus
Bridge
 G
Now more than once the town has discovered
 C
Painting over it aint no use
 G
There aint no paint in the world that’ll cover it
 CD
The heart keeps showing thru
Chorus (up 1 step)
