THE GRAND TOUR
Recorded by: George Jones
Submitted by: George Richardson
This song was recorded on the best of George Jones CD. I play it with
my fret bar on the fourth fret to bring it into my voice range.
Step (C) right up, come on in. If you'd like to take the grand tour,
of a (F) lonely house that once was home sweet (C) home. I have
nothing here to sell you, just some things that I will tell you. Some
(D7) things I know will chill you to the (G7) bone.
Over (C) there sits the chair where she brang the paper to me, and sit
down (F) on my knee and whisper oh (C) I love you. (G7) But now she's
gone forever and (C) this old house will (F) never be the (C) same
without the love (G) love that we once (C) knew.
(C) Straight ahead that's the bed where we lay and love together and
lord (F) knows we had a good thing going (C) here. See her picture on
the table don't it look like she'd be able, just to (D7) touch me and
say good morning (G7) dear. There's her (C) rings all her things and
her close are in the closet, just like she (F) left them when she tore
my world (C) apart.
As you (G7) leave you'll see the nursery, oh she (C) left me without
(F) mercy, taking (C) nothing but our (G7) baby and my (C) heart.
Step right up, come on in.
