 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard, capo on the 2nd fret
Intro:
[G]  
Vers:
[G]Dallas packed her suitcase
And dr[C]ove off in the brand new car I bo[G]ught her
She made lea[G]ving me look easy
I wi[C]sh she'd made it look a little ha[G]rder
I to[D]ok her out of Texas
When s[C]he was just a girl
But old Tenne[D]ssee and me
Couldn't take Te[C]xas out of h[D]er
Chorus:
On h[G]ow I wish Da[C]llas was in Tenne[D]ssee
If I could move Te[C]xas east
Then sh[D]e'd be here with me
Then no[G]thin' else would c[C]ome between the t[D]wo of us
If Dal[C]las was[D] in Tennessee

Vers 2 (same chords as vers 1):
By now she's leaving Memphis
And everything we had behind her
Lord I hope the gold band on her hand
Will serve as a reminder
That true love is a treasure
That's very seldom found
But you can't stay together if there's no common ground
Chorus:
On h[G]ow I wish Da[C]llas was in Tenne[D]ssee
If I could move Te[C]xas east
Then sh[D]e'd be here with me
Then no[G]thin' else would c[C]ome between the t[D]wo of us
If Dal[C]las was[D] in Tennessee[G]
Oh if Dal[C]las was[D] in Tennessee[G]
Outro:
[G]Dallas packed her suitcase
And dr[C]ove off in the brand new car I bought her[G]
