Artist:George Jones
Song: Open Pit Mine

 G                              C            G
From Morenci, Arizona where the copper mines glow
G                                   G
I could see Clifton in the canyon below
G                           C             G
In Clifton lived Rosey, we danced and we dined
G                          D         G
On the money I made in the open pit mine.

G                          C            G
I loved my sweet Rosey and she loved me too
G                                           G
There was nothin' for Rosey that I wouldn't do
G                                  C         G
Her hugs and her kisses they were something devine
G                               D       G
Gave me reason for working the open pit mine.


G                               C         G
While I was out walkin' with my Rosey one day
G                               G
We passed a store window with rings on display
G                               C              G        
I bought those she wanted, how they really did shine
G                                   D        G
With the money I scraped from that open pit mine.

G                                    C             G    
Her love would bring heartbreak that I would soon learn
G                                            G
'Cause she would concern me when my back was turned?
G                           C            G      
Rosey would go dancin' and drink the red wine
G                                    D        G
While I worked like a slave in that open pit mine.


G                           C           G
One night I caught Rosey on her rendevous
G                                          G
She was huggin' and kissin' with somebody new
G                                   C                G  
It was there that I shot 'em while their arms were entwined
G                               D       G
Then I buried her deep in that open pit mine.

G                               C          G
I took a look at my future and what did I see
G                                   G
There was nothin' but trouble a-waiting for me
G                                 D        G
But on the sun's next rising I'll be satisfied
