John Deere Green
by Joe Diffie
The first person to submit this did an excellent job. I just added a couple
of chords, plus the bridge and key changes.
[G]They were farm kids way down in Dixie
[C]They met in high school in the [G]sixties
Everyone knew it was love from the [D7]start
One [G]July in the midnight hour
[C]He climbed upon the [G]water tower
Stood on the rail and [D7]painted a ten foot [C]heart[D]
Chorus
In [Em]John [D]Deere [C]Green
[G]On a [D]hot summer [C]night
He wrote [Em]Billy Bob [D]loves [C]Charlene
[G]In letters [D]three foot [C]high
And the [Em]whole town said
that he [D]should’ve used red
But it [G]looked good [D]to [C]Charlene
in [Em]John [D]Deere [G]Green
They settled down on eighty acres
Raising sweet corn, kids and tomatoes
They went together like a hand and a glove
On a clear day from their front yard
He you look and know what to look for
Off to the east you can still read his words of love
Repeat chorus
Bridge
Now [G]more than once the town has discovered
Painting [C]over it aint no use
There [G]aint no paint in the world that’ll cover it
The [C]heart keeps showing [D]thru
Chorus (up 1 step)
In [F#m]John [E]Deere [D]Green
[A]On a [E]hot summer [D]night
He wrote [F#m]Billy Bob [E]loves [D]Charlene
[A]In letters [E]three foot [D]high
And the [F#m]whole town said
that he [E]should’ve used red
But it [A]looked good [E]to [D]Charlene
in [F#m]John [E]Deere [A]Green
Repeat chorus
