The Funeral  Mike McClure

Capo 2
Verse 1
[Cadd9]Well stage right enter J[G]immy, [Cadd9]Counterfeit James dean[G]
[Cadd9]Pocket full of delta blue[G]s and cheap amphe[D]tamines[G]
[Cadd9]Their feet up on his dash[G] board[Cadd9] like a burned out Bet[G]ty Page
[Cadd9]She might have been somet[G]hing if she was h[D]alf her age[G]
[Cadd9]But together they were so[G]methin[Cadd9]g, and they burned dow[G]n every bar
[Cadd9]Heading down to Okie City[G] in a slightly st[D]olen car[G]
Verse 2
What was left was decent people, that didn‚??t like their kind
When the car pulled in the driveway they were staring through the blinds
Yeah the preacher in the kitchen eating apple pie
Mama‚??s in the bedroom Lord she couldn‚??t help but cry
Daddy looked so natural just like he went to sleep
Yeah, the preacher looked through Jimmy as he prayed his soul to keep
[Cadd9]Comin‚?? H[G]ome[Cadd9], Comin‚?? [G]Home
[Cadd9]Ain‚??t nothing like yo[G]ur family to mak[D]e you feel that alon[G]e
[Cadd9]You were always his favo[G]rite now y[Cadd9]our daddy‚??s dead and g[G]one
[Cadd9]There ain‚??t n[G]obody waiting on th[D]e prodigal son[G]
Verse 3
Rolled out into traffic nosed in behind the hearse
That empty hollow feeling that just grown from bad to worse
Yeah the preacher read from scr i pture as they put him in the ground
Yeah everybody loaded up and they headed back to town
Jimmy pulled out his whiskey once everyone was gone
Felt he should say something but just stared down at the stone
Verse 4
Well they folded up the tables, and the ladies washed the plates
And his cousins asked about the car that was locked behind the gates
Jimmy knew his daddy‚??s .38 was in that trunk buried deep
It would find its rightful owner once his mama fell asleep
Yeah jimmy looked at mama, and mama just looked down
Said ‚??why‚??s it take a funeral boy to bring you back to town‚??
