Flies On The Butter

Wynonna Judd

 GEm
Old tin roof, leaves in the gutter,
 CD
A hole in the screen door as big as your fist,
 G
And flies on the butter

(verse 2)
 G
Mamaw baking sugar cookies,
 Em
We were watching cartoons,
 C
I Heard her holler from the kitchen,
 DG-D
Which one of you yougins wants to lick the spoon   

(verse 3)
 G
Yellow jackets on the watermelon,
 Em
Honeysuckle in the air,
 C
Daddy turning on the sprinkler,
 DG-D
Us kids running through it in our underwear   

(verse 4)
 G
Old dog napping on the front porch,
 Em
His ear just a-twitching,
 C
Fell asleep on grandaddy's lap,
 DG
To the sound of his pocket watch ticking

(chorus)

 Cadd9DG
  Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh, 
 Cadd9DG-D
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago 
 Cadd9DG
  Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh, 
 EmCadd9D
   You can dream about it every now and then,
 DG-Em-C
But you can't go home agai      

(verse 5)
 G
Me and my best friend Jenny,
 Em
Set up a backyard camp,
 C
Stole one of mama's mason jars,
 DG-D
Poked holes in the lid and made a fire fly lamp, 

(verse 6)
 GEm
Me and Billy Monroe sneaking down by the river,
 CD
And I'm still haunted by the taste of the kiss,
 G
I was too scared to give him

(chorus)

 Cadd9DG
  Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh, 
 Cadd9DG
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago,
 Cadd9DG
  Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh, 
 EmCadd9D
   You can dream about it every now and then,
 DCadd9
But you can't go home again,

(lead chords - Cadd9 - D - Cadd9 - D)

(verse 7)
 G
There's a black-top road,
 Em
A faded yellow centerline,
 C
It can take you back to the place,
 DG-D
But it can't take you back in tim 

(chorus)

 Cadd9DG
  Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh, 
 Cadd9DG
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago,
 Cadd9DBm
  Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh, 
 EmCadd9D
   You can dream about it every now and then,
 DG
But you can't go home again

(ending verse )
 GEm
Old tin roof, leaves in the gutter,
 CD
A hole in the screen door big as your fist,
 C-G
And flies on the butte
