Gretchen Peters - Lilies Of The Field


CAPO: 4th Fret




INTRO: C

                                         F
Billy had a yearning and an ache inside
                                                      C
So he bought himself a Harley and he learned to ride
                                                 F
Purred just like a baby, low and sweet and true
                                               C
And he aimed it at the place where the blacktop turns to blue


                                     F
Penny was a waitress down in Tupelo
                                                      C
They said that she was trouble, I don't really know
                                                           F
But something in her spirit touched something in his soul
                                         C
And he took her to his heart and he never let her go
           G                           Am                        F
She said, "If I had an ounce of courage, I would leave this town
                         G
Life'll get you nowhere 'til they put you in the ground"


CHORUS:
        C
But the lilies of the field, they neither reap nor sow
        F
I wanna buy me a Winnebago and a map of Mexico
   C                                                           F 
Go rolling down the highway where life's secrets are revealed
                                   C               F   C
Dancing in the wind like the lilies of the field


                                        F
Penny had a secret growing deep inside
                                                     C
And she'd never known a man to love another's child
                                                   F
Somewhere west of Tucson she just ran out of time
                                      C
So she made a quick decision and she made him walk the line
           G                              Am                        F
She said, "If you had an ounce of courage, you would take a stand
                          G
Don't nobody argue with a pistol in your hand"


CHORUS:
        C
Oh, the lilies of the field, they neither reap nor sow
        F
I wanna buy me a Winnebago and a map of Mexico
   C                                                           F 
Go rolling down the highway where life's secrets are revealed
                                   C               F   C   F   C
Dancing in the wind like the lilies of the field


                                           F
Billy pleaded guilty, ninety-nine to life
                                         C
Penny disappeared into the desert night
                                           F
Then she took his pistol out on Highway 2
                                                C
And she aimed it at the place where the blacktop turns to blue
           G                              Am                          F
She said, "If you had an ounce of courage, you would leave this town
                          G
Life'll get you nowhere 'til they put you in the ground"


CHORUS:
        C
Oh, the lilies of the field, they neither reap nor sow
        F
I wanna buy me a Winnebago and a map of Mexico
   C                                                           F 
Go rolling down the highway where life's secrets are revealed
                                   C               F   
Dancing in the wind like the lilies of the field
               C               F   C 
Like the lilies of the field
