Song: She Was
Artist: Mark Chesnutt
Transposed by: Eddie Garcia (
Actual key D# (capo 1st fret)
She Was
She [G]started her new life ten [A]dollars in debt
[G]That’s all it took to get s[A]tarted back then
A [G]trip to the courthouse ac[A]ross the state line
[G]No one could stop her she’d [A]made up her mind
He was [G]eighteen and she [A]wasn’t…
But she said she [D]was and never thought [F#m]twice
Came back [G]home as my daddy’s [A]wife
She just shook her [D]head
And her momma s[Bm]aid “are you sure he’s the [G]one?”[A]
She wa[D]s
[G]He took a job and [A]farmed on the side
[G]He made the ends meet but [A]she kept them tight
[G]Changes were coming to t[A]heir little world
She said “[G]what would you like a [A]boy or a girl?”
And he said, “[G]are you?”…[A]
And she said she [D]was and never thought [F#m]twice
About taking the n[G]ext step and building their [A]lives
Soon there were [D]three and she tried to [Bm]be everything to [G]us[A]
And she [D]was…
[G]Those precious moments [A]turned into years
In what [D]seemed like a [A]blink of an [G/F#]eye
[Em]I held her hand as I [G]leaned down to ask her
[Em]“Momma are you ready to[A] say good bye?”
She said she [D]was but she thought [F#m]twice
Holding my [G]hand as she let go of [A]life
Daddy always [D]said a woman like [Bm]her would be hard to give [G]up[A]
And she [Bm]was
If there [G]ever was a picture of [A]love
She [D]was
