Red Clay Halo-crd

Gillian Welch

 G
 Oh the girls all dance with the boys from the city
 D
And they don-t care to dance with me.
 G
Now it ain-t my fault that the fields are muddy
 DG
And the red clay stains my feet.
 G
 And it-s under my nails and it-s under my collar
 D
And it shows on my Sunday clothes.
 G
do my best with soap and water
 DG
But the damned old dirt won-t go.
CHORUS:
 CG
But when I pass through the Pearly Gates
 DG
Will my gown be gold instead,
 CG
Or just a red clay robe with red clay wings
 DG
And a red clay halo for my head?
 G
 Now it-s mud in the spring and it-s dust in the summer
 D
When it blows in a crimson tide,
 G
Until the trees and the leaves and the cows are the color
 DG
Of the dirt on the mountain side.
CHORUS
 G
 Now Jordan-s banks, they-re red and muddy
 D
And the rolling water is wide,
 G
But I got no boat so I-ll be good and muddy
 DG
When I get to the other side.
CHORUS
 CG
I'll take a red clay robe with red clay wings
 DG
And a red clay halo for my head.
