Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Brown-Eyed Woman  Grateful Dead



[Am]Gone are the days when the [C]ox fall down,
[G]Take up the yoke and plow the [F]fields around.
[Am]Gone are the days when the [C]ladies said, "Please,
[F]Gentle Jack Jones, won't you come home to [C]me?"
CHORUS:
[G]Brown-eyed women and red grenadine,
The [F]bottle was dusty but the [C]liquor was [G]clean.
[F]Sound of the thunder with the [C]rain fallin' [Am]down,
And it [Dm]looks like the old man's[F] gettin' [C]on.

[Am]1920 when he [C]stepped to the bar,
[G]Drank to the dregs of the [F]whiskey jar.
[Am]1930 when the [C]walls caved in,
[F]He made his way sellin' [C]red-eyed gin.

[Am]Delilah Jones was the [C]mother of twins,
[G]Two times over and the rest [F]were sins.
[Am]Raised eight boys, only [C]I turned bad,
[F]Didn't get the lickin's that the other [C]ones had.
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
[Gm]Tumble down shack in [F]Bigfoot [C]county,
[Gm]Snowed so hard that the [F]roof caved [C]in.
[Am]Delilah [G]Jones went to [F]meet her [C]God,
And the [Dm]old man never was the same [C]again.

[Am]Daddy made whiskey and he [C]made it well,
[G]Cost two dollars and it burnt [F]like hell.
[Am]I cut hick'ry just to fire [C]the still,
[F]Drink down a bottle and ready [C]to kill.

CHORUS

[Am]Gone are the days when the [C]ox fall down,
[G]Take up the yoke and plow the [F]fields around.
[Am]Gone are the days when the [C]ladies said, "Please,
[F]Gentle Jack Jones, won't you come home to [C]me?"
