Flowered Dresses  Slaid Cleaves

Capo 4
Intro - G - C - Em7 - D
She was[G] leaning long legged
'neath a [C]bottle cap sign
Of a [Em7]country store with a [D]coke and a smile
the [G]coolest place to linger
on an [C]Arkansas day
when she [Em7]saw him passing [D]by
He said "I'll [G]take you back to Texas"
Said "my [C]name is Ray"
where the [Em7]stars are bigger than the [D]Hit Parade
And she [G]stopped dreamin' her dream
and she [C]started dreamin' his
[Em7]Traded in her childhood [D]
[C]She wore flowered [D]dresses for [G]him
[C]Rolled her hair, [D]scrubbed her freckled [G]skin
On the c[C]hance that they were goin' out toni[D]ght
[G]Catch a sh[G/F#]ow, maybe g[C]rab a bite
and she [C]looked real nice, Sh[D]e looked real nice [G]
Sometimes I think about my daddy
and his old spice grin,
Cleaned pressed shirts, and a farmers tan
She never asked him questions
So he never told her lies
but I heard my mama cry some
And I was sitting in the hallway on the night he left
huggin my knees, holding my breath
I never knew why but he was damn sure gone
thought it was maybe my fault
Now the evening is just starting to chill a bit
with the fireflies in flight over the trees and it
Brings to mind the glider where she used to sit
And count the headlights on the highway
So I think of where you're goin'
Where you are tonight
What you might have seen,
since I last saw those eyes.
I know that I can't win, If I do not play
But this whole thing scares me
and [C]she looked real [D]nice, She looked real [G]nice
