Jamey Johnson



This is my very first tab. Please let me know if there are any mistakes.

I am sick and tired of people writing tabs that have the "F" chord in them
for this song. THIS TAB IS THE CLOSEST TO BEING CORRECT ON THE
INTERNET!! I even wrote up the intro. It's not 100% correct but it's
damn close for being transposed from multiple guitars.

*Verse*

G
I said Grandpa what's this picture here

         Cadd9
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
And times were tough back in '35

       Cadd9
That's me and Uncle Joe just tryin' to survive

   C                            G
A cotton farm in the Great Depression


*Chorus*

      G
If it looks like we were scared to death

Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other

                             G
You should've seen it in color


*Verse*

        G
Ooh and this one was taken overseas

       Cadd9                         C
In the middle of hell in 1933 in the winter time

                         G
You can almost see my breath


That was my tailgunner ol' Johnny Mcgee

         Cadd9                                       C
He was a high school teacher from New Orleans and he had my back

                            G
Right through the day we left


*Chorus*

      G
If it looks like we were scared to death

       C                                        C/G
Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other 

                             G
You should've seen it in color


A picture's worth a thousand words

        C                                           C/G
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered

                             G  C  C/G  G
You should've seen it in color


*Verse*

G
This one is my favorite one

        Cadd9
This is me and Grandma in the summer sun

C                                     G
All dressed up the day we said our vows


You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
   
     Cadd9
That rose was red and her eyes were blue

     C                                G   Em
Just look at that smile, I was so proud


*Bridge*

Em                     Cadd9(2)  Em
That's the story of my life

Em                       Cadd9
Right there in black and white



*Chorus*

G
And if it looks like we were scared to death

       C                                        C/G
Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other

                            G
You should've seen it in color

  G                                 
A picture's worth a thousand words

        C--------------pause in strumming----------- C/G                                    
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered

                            G
You should've seen it in color


(Guitar solo)


       G
Yeah a picture's a worth a thousand words

        C                                            C/G
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered

                            G
You should've seen it in color

(Strum out to the chorus chord progression and strum a G chord to end)

Whoa, Dude slow down with your opening statements. I have to admit I agree with retro and Dirk. I even looked at the original sheet music and the F is definitely in there but it is a F suspended chord which also what Jamey does on the video. It might be what you're looking for and if you watch closely when he makes the F Chord, his pinky is on the E string on the third fret. By the way on another note, we're all here trying to hone our skills and have fun. I appreciate people who are passionate, however, there is no sense in getting so adamant about something that you have to use all caps. If you do not realize what this means let me inform you, this is yelling when you're typing. Even when you're sick and tired of something you're interacting with other people who have different skill levels and if you truly care so much being diplomatic would be a better approach. So, if you are determined to come off this way no matter what, my advice to you...make sure you're right which, in this case you're not! Otherwise you present yourself like a condescending dumbass.
