Open Pit Mine  George Jones

open pit mine by George Jones
F[C]rom Morenci, Arizona where the [Am]copper mines [C]glow
[C]I could see Clifton in the c[Am]anyon be[C]low
[C]In Clifton lived Rosey, we d[Am]anced and we d[C]ined
[C]On the money I made in the [G]open pit m[C]ine.
[C]I loved my sweet Rosey and [Am]she loved me [C]too
[C]There was nothin' for Rosey that[Am] I wouldn't [C]do
[C]Her hugs and her kisses they were s[Am]omething d[C]evine
[C]Gave me reason for working the o[G]pen pit [C]mine.
 --- Instrumental ---

[C]While I was out walkin' with my [Am]Rosey one [C]day
[C]We passed a store window with r[Am]ings on d[C]isplay
[C]I bought those she wanted, how t[Am]hey really did [C]shine
[C]With the money I scraped from that o[G]pen pit m[C]ine.
[C]Her love would bring heartbreak that [Am]I would soon l[C]earn
[C]'Cause she would concern me when [Am]my back was [C]turned?
[C]Rosey would go dancin' and d[Am]rink the red [C]wine
[C]While I worked like a slave in that o[G]pen pit m[C]ine.
 --- Instrumental ---

[C]One night I caught Rosey on [Am]her rendevou[C]s
[C]She was huggin' and kissin' with [Am]somebody n[C]ew
[C]It was there that I shot 'em while t[Am]heir arms were en[C]twined
[C]Then I buried her deep in that o[G]pen pit [C]mine.
[C]I took a look at my future and w[Am]hat did I s[C]ee
[C]There was nothin' but trouble a[Am]-waiting for [C]me
[C]But on the sun's next rising I'll [Am]be satisf[C]ied
