Capo 1

Intro: G

G                                                     Am
It was the thirty first gathering of the Thompsons, Joneses, and Smiths
             G                                                  D
There were tables full of chicken, taters, collard greens, and grits
         G                                  A
Well it all took place at Hatie Lake State Park
              G
Volleyball, fishin', badmitton, yard darts
      Am                                         D
Aunt Irene said she'd never seen a turnout like this

         G
Well it started with hand shakes and lordy, how the babies have grown
                                                D
As the sun got hotter the day got to draggin' along
   G
I saw Uncle Gene comin' back from his car
       C                                  G
With somethin' clear as water in a mason jar
                               D                  G
The lemonade got hearty and, Lordy, the party was on

Chorus
     C
That ol' boom box got louder and louder 
  G
Actin' civilzed didn't seem to matter
  C                                            D
Everybody got to showin' their hiney includin' me
           G
Lord I'd never known Granny to take her a sip 
          C
But the words were a slurrin' comin' off of her lips
         G                   D                      G
And it dawned on me white lightnin' hit the family tree

G
Well cousin Johnny was a gator Jimmy was a UT fan
                                                  D
And that football talk was quickly gettin out of hand
        G 
Granny told Uncle Dave that she hated his guts
      C
Got right up in his face said, your whole famn damily's nuts
         G                           D                        G
Chicken legs got to flyin' And the whoop started hittin' the fan

Repeat Chorus
     C
That ol' boom box got louder and louder 
  G
Actin' civilzed didn't seem to matter
  C                                            D
Everybody got to showin' their hiney includin' me
           G
Lord I'd never known Granny to take her a sip 
          C
But the words were a slurrin' comin' off of her lips
         G                   D                      G
And it dawned on me white lightnin' hit the family tree


     F                       C
That ol' park ranger jumped out of his car 
        G
Said, listen here folks, it's gone a little too far
  F                C 
Tear it all down, pack it all up
 Dm
Call it quits while there's still a little love

Instrumental: C-G-C-Dm
           G
Yeah I've never known Granny to take her a sip 
          C
But the words were a slurrin' comin' off of her lips
         G                  D                       G
And it dawned on me white lightnin' hit the family tree

                             D                       G
Yeah it dawned on me white lightnin' hit the family tree

The beginning is weird to me. Doesn't match the actual song.
