She Came From Fort Worth-crd  Kathy Mattea

CHORUS:    She came from F[Bb]ort Worth (but) F[Gm]ort Worth couldn't hold [Eb]her[F]
Her dreams were b[Bb]igger [Gm]than the Texas s[Eb]ky[F]
She's got a one-w[Bb]ay t[Eb]icket on the [Bb]next bus for Bo[Gm]ulder
And it w[Eb]on't take l[F]ong to say goo[Bb]dbye
She was w[Eb]orkin' at a d[F]iner j[Eb]ust a week [Bb]ago
When a [Gm]man from Col[Bb]orado sm[Eb]iled and said he[F]llo
And he tu[Bb]rned her head with st[Gm]ories about a c[Eb]abin in the t[Bb]rees
Where the w[Gm]ind can sing you l[Eb]ove songs be[Bb]neath snow-capped mountain p[F]eaks
Now she's p[Eb]acked her faded je[F]ans and her fav[Eb]orite cowboy bo[Bb]ots
Left her a[Gm]pron at the d[Bb]iner for some[Eb]one else to [F]use
One last l[Bb]ook in the mi[Gm]rror at the g[Eb]irl she used to [Bb]be
Then the dr[Gm]iver takes her ti[Eb]cket and she tr[Bb]ies to fall asle[F]ep
repeat chorus
And som[Eb]ewhere in the lo[F]ng dark night the s[Eb]now began to f[Bb]all
Oh, the w[Gm]orld outside was spar[Bb]kling white when she h[Eb]eard the driver c[F]all
"Eve[Bb]ryone off now for Bo[Gm]ulder and h[Eb]ave a real nice [Bb]day"
He was wa[Gm]itin' on the pla[Eb]tform and [Bb]he raised his hand to wa[F]ve
And she off[Eb]ered no resi[F]stance as he [Eb]took her to his ca[Bb]bin
And that d[Gm]iner in the dist[Eb]ance se[Bb]emed just like it never hap[F]pened.
repeat chorus then last two lines of chorus
