[Intro]

G F C G


[Verse 1]

G
I said,"Grandpa what's this picture here?
F
It's all black and white and it ain't real clear
C                                      G
Is that you there? He said yeah, I was 11.
G
Times were tough back in '35
F
That's me and Uncle Joe just tryin' to survive
C
A cotton farm
G
And a great depression


[Chorus]

G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F
Like a couple of kids tryin' to save each other
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color


[Verse 2]
G
Awe and this one here's taken overseas
F
In the middle of Hell in 1943
C                                         G
In the winter time, you can almost see my breath
G
That was my tail gunner: Ole Johnny McGee
F
He was a High School teacher from New Orleans
C                                           G
And he had my back, right through the day we left


[Chorus]
G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F
Like a couple of kids tryin' to save each other
C                             G 
You should've seen it in color
G
A pictures worth a thousand words
F                                                 C
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color.


[Verse 3]

G
This one is my favorite one. 
F
This is me and grandma in the summer sun 
C                                   G 
All dressed up the day we said our vows. 
G
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June 
F
That rose was red and her eyes were blue 
C                                    G
And just look at that smile I was so proud. 


[Bridge]

Em              D/F         C
      That's the story of my life 
Em           D/F               C      D
      Right there in black and white


[Chorus]

G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F
Like a couple of kids tryin' to save each other
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color
G
A pictures worth a thousand words
F
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color.

G
A pictures worth a thousand words
F
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color.

@racer, D/F is e-3, B-3, G-2, D-0, A-0, E-1 or e-2, B-3, G-2, D-0, A-0, E-1

@Awsm_Guitarist9, great job!!!! one thing idk if you missed out by mistake, ending chords after "You should've seen it in color" is F C G then song slows down and G F C G is played....

I don't know if it's me or what... never the less great tab!!!

is that D/F correct? it's a weird chord. Sure it's not a D/F# or Dm/F?
