Dyess Arkansas  Buddy Jewell

written by Buddy Jewell
Would [C]you believe this b[C/G]lacktop highway [C]used to be a [C/B]one-lane gravel [Dm]road
Back when [F]Johnny Cash was [F/C]just somebody [G]Daddy went to [G/B]school with years [C]ago
When the cottonwoods reached [C/G]to the sky & [C]honeysuckle [C/B]vines reached all [Dm]around
My e[F]yes well up with [F/C]memories every [G]time I think [G/B]about this little [C]town, 'cause
I know there's bigger c[F]ities, full of all the sights and [C]sounds
Where people live in fear and [Dm]lock their doors long before the sun goes [C]down
The drive-in picture show's been [F]closed for years, no superstores or mini-[Am]malls[F]
Ah but [Dm]everyday I [C]thank the Lord He [F]made D[G]yess Ar[C]kansas
I used to laugh at all the stories Daddy'd tell me about all the mischief he'd get in
Dream of penny candy nickels soda pops, Lord what a dollar'd buy back then
When livin' life was picture perfect like a Norman Rockwell painting of the South
Lord I'd give almost anything to hear my daddy tell his stories now, he'd say
Yes I know there's bigger c[F]ities, but there ain't no better [C]town
Folks here don't live in fear and [Dm]lock their doors long before the sun goes [C]down
The population sign ain't c[F]hanged in years I guessed it's destined to be s[Am]mall[F]
Ah but [Dm]everyday I t[C]hank the Lord He [F]made [G]Dyess Ar[C]kansas
Yeah e[Dm]veryday I [C]thank the Lord He [F]made [G]Dyess Ar[C]kansas
