In Color

Jamey Johnson

 A
I said grandpa whats this picture here
 G
Its all black and white it aint real clear
 D
Is that you there?
 A
He said yeah i was 11
 A
 Times were tough  back in '35
 G
Thats me and uncle Joe just tryin to survive
 DA
A cotton farm in the great depression.

(Chorus)
 A
If it looks like we were scared to death
 GD
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
 A
You should've seen it in color.

(Verse 2)
Ohh and this one here was taken over seas
In the middle of hell in 1943
In the winter time you can almost see my breath
That was my tail gunner ole Johnny Magee
He was a high school teacher from new Orleans
And he had my back right through the day we left.

(Chorus)
If it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color.
A picture's worth a thousand words
But you cant see what those
shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color

(Verse 3)
This one is my favorite one.
This is me and grandma in the summer sun
All dressed up the day we said our vows.
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
That rose was red and her eyes were blue
And just look at that smile I was so proud.

(Bridge)
 F#mED
       Thats the story of my life
 F#mEDE
       Right there in black and white   

(Chorus)
If it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color.
A picture's worth a thousand words
But you cant see what those
shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color
