ballad of barbara Johnny Cash KEY: C [C & G]  In a southern town where I was born That's where I got my  ed-u--ca-tion I worked in the fields and I walked in the woods And I wondered  at cre--a-tion. I recall the sun in a sky of blue And the smell of green things growin' And the seasons chang'd and I lived each day Just the way the wind was blowin'. Then I heard of a cultured city life Breath-takin' lofty steeples And the day I called myself a man I left my land and my people. And I rambled north and I rambled east And I tested and I tasted And a girl or two, took me round and round But they always left me wasted. In a world that's all concrete and steel With nothin' green ever growin' Where the buildings hide the risin' sun And they blocked the free winds from blowin. Where you sleep all day and you wake all night To a world of drink and laughter I met that girl that I was sure would be The one that I was after. CHANGE TO KEY OF D: [D & A]  In a soft blue gown and formal tux Beneath that  lofty  steep-le He said, "Do you Barbara, take this man, Will you be one  of his  peop-le?" And she said, "I will." and she said, "I do." And the world looked mighty pretty And we lived in a fancy downtown flat 'Cause she loved the noisy city. But the days grew cold beneath a yellow sky And I longed for green things growin' And the thoughts of home and the people there But she'd not agreed to goin'. Then her hazel eyes turned away from me With a look that wasn't pretty And she turned into concrete and steel And she said, "I'll take the city."  Now the cars go by on the interstate And my pack is  on my  should-er But I'm goin' home, where I belong Much wiser  now and  old-er.
