Gone Country  Alan Jackson

Gone Country - Alan Jackson

(Bob McDill)
As a source I used the submission of:
of 20 Feb 1995.
He explains that the riff is not the correct picking, so I looked into
[G] [D] [C] 
 ----------- ----------3---------------------------------------------
 ----------- ----------3-------------------------3-------------------
 -------0--- ----------0---------------------2---------------------0-
 -0^2------- ------------------------0-----------------------0^2-----
 ----------- ----------------2^3---------------------3---------------
 ----------- --3----------------------------------------------------- 

Play the riff between and 4 times. Use 3rd and 4th finger for the G
in the riff (3rd fret B and E string) and leave those fingers there thru
the whole riff.
Also play the G chord thru the whole song as follows: E A D G B E
3 x 0 0 3 3
G C D (riff)
She's been playing that room on the strip for ten years in Vegas
G C D (riff)
Every night she looks in the mirror but she only ages
(riff)[G] [C] [D]
She's been reading 'bout Nashville and all the records that everybody's
G C D (riff)
Says I'm a simple girl myself grew up on Long Island
So she [Em]packs her bags to [D]try her hand
Says [Em]this might be [D]my last chance
She's gone [G]country, [C]look at them [D]boots
She's gone [G]country, [C]back to her [D]roots
She's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]suit
She's gone country, here she comes
2x riff
G C D (riff)
Well the folk scene's dead, but he's holding out in the village
G C D (riff)
He's been writing songs, speaking out against wealth and privilege
G C D (riff)
He says I don't believe in money, but a man could make him a killin'
G C D (riff)
Cause some of that stuff don't sound much different than Dylan
I [Em]hear down there it's [D]changed you see
Th[Em]ey're not as backwards as they [D]used to be
He's gone [G]country, [C]look at them [D]boots
He's gone [G]country, [C]back to his [D]roots
He's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]suit
He's gone country, here he comes
Play chorus 1x
G C D (riff)
He commutes to L.A., but he's got a house in the valley
G C D (riff)
But the bills are pilling up and the pop scene just ain't on a rally
G C D (riff)
He says honey I'm a serious composer schooled in voice and composition
(riff)[G] [C] [D]
But with the crime and the smog these days this ain't no place for
Lord it [Em]sounds so easy, this [D]shouldn't take long
Be [Em]back in the money in [D]no time at all
He's gone [G]country, [C]look at them [D]boots
He's gone [G]country, [C]back to his [D]roots
He's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]suit
He's gone country, here he comes
2x riff
Yeah he's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]walk
He's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]talk
He's gone [G]country, [C]look at them [D]boots
He's gone [G]country, oh [C]back to his [D]roots
He's gone [G]country[C] [D]
He's gone [G]country[C]
Every[D]body's gone [G]country[C]
[D]Yeah we've gone [G]country[C]
D G C D G C D Fade out
The whole world's gone country
