"They Don't Make Em Like They Used To"
Aaron Watson
Capo 2


[Intro]
G   Bm   Em   C


[Verse]
    G                             Bm
Bluebonnets down a long stretch of hill country highway
Em                           C
Windows down, radio up, ride shotgun next to you
         G                               Bm
You were smoking Camel Lights behind the wheel I can still hear you say
      Em                                           C (x2)
Three hundred thousand miles you can't beat an ol' beat up Chevrolet (No Sir)


[Instrumental]
G   Bm   Em   C


[Verse]
     G                                Bm
Well Granny's in the kitchen, smell of fried chicken frying
      Em                            C
She's cooking in her apron singing along with Patsy Cline
        G                              Bm
Playin' ball in the front yard, little sister runs in crying
    Em                                C (x2)
She climbs up in her arms, I hear her laughing through the old screen door


[Chorus]
           G
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Bm
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Em            C
They don't make 'em like you anymore

           G
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Bm
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Em            C
They don't make 'em like you anymore


{Verse}
         G                                          Bm
Well the days have changed since the golden days in some ways we've come so far
      Em                                    C
But I never dreamed we'd trade the American Dream for a fancy foreign car
        G                             Bm
Have we sold our souls to save a buck, traded hard work for dumb luck
         Em                              C
And those old country songs are sounding better than ever before


{Chorus}
           G
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Bm
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Em                      C
They don't make 'em like you anymore

           G
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Bm
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Em                      C
They don't make 'em like you anymore


{Verse}
       G                             Bm
So you live the kind of life so long after you're long gone
              Em                                C
You'll always be there in their hearts and your love light will shine on
        G                              Bm
And someday they'll sit around down at John T's Country Store
           Em                               C
They'll be laughing over stories you told a thousand times before, saying
C                               G  Bm  C
They don't make em like you anymore
D                               G  Bm  Em  C
They don't make em like you anymore


{Chorus}
           G
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Bm
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Em            C
They don't make 'em like you anymore

           G
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Bm
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Em            C
They don't make 'em like you anymore


{Verse}
     G                             Bm
Well no news is good news, tell me whose news really tells the truth
Em                               C
The death toll rises high as gas prices shoot straight through the roof
    G                                   Bm
Meanwhile politicians preach, while some preachers politic
        Em                                 C
Well we need is lots of love, yeah lots of love might do the trick


[Verse]
           G                             Bm
Instead we criticize, we glamorize who's right or wrong, who's left or right
        Em                                       C
Missing out on so many beautiful colors fighting over what's black and white
      G                                    Bm
We've gotta forgive, gotta learn to live together, make the world a better place
         Em                                    C
And just maybe someday somebody somewhere will look back on today
C
Look back on us and say


{Outro}
           G
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Bm
They don't make 'em like they used to
           Em                   C
They don't make 'em like you anymore
