John Deere Green   Joe Diffie


Intro:  (G)  (G)  (G)  (G)

(G) They were farm kids way down in Dixie
(C) They met in high school (G) in the sixties
Everyone knew it was love from the (D) start
(G) One July in the midnight hour
(C) He climed the (G) water tower
Stood on the rail and (D) painted a 10ft (C) heart (D)

In (Em) John (D) Deere (C) green
(G) On a (D) hot summer ni(C)ght
He wrote (Em) Billy Bob (D) loves Charl(C)ene
(G) In letters (D) 3 foot (C) high
And the (Em) whole town said that he (D) should have used red
But it (G) looked good to Charl(C)ene
In (Em) John (D) Deere gr(G)een

(G)  (G)  (G)  (G)

(G) They settled down on 80 acres
(C) Raising sweet corn, (G) kids and tomato's
They went together like a hand and a gl(D)ove
(G) On a clear day from their front yard
(C) If you look and (G) know what to look for
Off to the east you can (D) still read his words of (C) love (D)

In (Em) John (D) Deere (C) green
(G) On a (D) hot summer ni(C)ght
He wrote (Em) Billy Bob (D) loves Charl(C)ene
(G) In letters (D) 3 foot (C) high
And the (Em) whole town said that he (D) should have used red
But it (G) looked good to Charl(C)ene
In (Em) John (D) Deere gr(G)een

Now (D) more then once the (Em) town has dicoved
Painting (C) over it ain't no (G) use

The (C) heart keeps showing thr(D)ough
