In Color  Jamey Johnson

When looking at the tabs already posted for this song, i noticed one was
capoed at the 3rd fret and the other was in the actual key played with no
capo. A nice way to play this in the right key with simple chords(no bar) is
capoed on the 1st fret. The lyrics and chord positions are credited to
Awsm_Guitarist9. i simply changed the chords to be played with a capo at the
1st fret. when you listen to the song it sounds like its played with a capo
at the 3rd fret, but this way the chords are a little easier to play and
sing along with (the chords are still correct).
Jamey Johnson - In Color, from the album: That Lonesome Song
CAPO 1
(Verse 1)
I said grand[A]pa whats this picture here
Its all bl[G]ack and white it aint real clear
Is tha[D]t you there?
He said yeah i was [A]11
[A]Times were tough back in '35
Thats[G] me and uncle Joe just tryin to survive
A co[D]tton farm in the great dep[A]ression.
(Chorus)
If it l[A]ooks like we were scared to death
Like a c[G]ouple of kids just trying to save each o[D]ther
You should've seen it in co[A]lor.
(Verse 2)
Ohh and this one here was taken over seas
In the middle of hell in 1943
In the winter time you can almost see my breath
That was my tail gunner ole Johnny Magee
He was a high school teacher from new Orleans
And he had my back right through the day we left.
(Chorus)
If it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color.
A picture's worth a thousand words
But you cant see what those
shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color
(Verse 3)
This one is my favorite one.
This is me and grandma in the summer sun
All dressed up the day we said our vows.
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
That rose was red and her eyes were blue
And just look at that smile I was so proud.
(Bridge)
[F#m] Thats the [E]story of my [D]life
[F#m] Right t[E]here in black and [D]white[E]
(Chorus)
If it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color.
A picture's worth a thousand words
But you cant see what those
shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color
