Lyrics:

Verse 1:
            C
I said grandpa whats this picture here
          Bb
Its all black and white it aint real clear
      F
Is that you there?
                   C
He said yeah i was 11
C
Times were tough  back in '35
     Bb
Thats me and uncle Joe just tryin to survive
    F                         C
A cotton farm in the great depression.

Chorus:
       C
If it looks like we were scared to death
        Bb                                       F
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
                           C
You should've seen it in color.

Verse 2:
C
Oh and this one here was taken over seas
         Bb
In the middle of hell in 1943
                                          F
In the winter time you can almost see my breath
C
That was my tail gunner ole Johnny Magee
Bb
He was a high school teacher from new Orleans
             F                                              C
And he had my back right through the day we left.

Chorus:
       C
If it looks like we were scared to death
        Bb                                       F
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
                           C
You should've seen it in color.
     C
A picture's worth a thousand words
           Bb
But you cant see what those
                                 F
shades of gray keep covered
                        C
You should've seen it in color

Verse 3:
C
This one is my favorite one.
           Bb
This is me and grandma in the summer sun
     F                                            C
All dressed up the day we said our vows.
      C
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
Bb
That rose was red and her eyes were blue
                                F                  C
And just look at that smile, I was so proud.

Bridge:
Am              G         D
      Thats the story of my life
Am           G              D
      Right there in black and white

Chorus:
       C
If it looks like we were scared to death
        Bb                                       F
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
                           C
You should've seen it in color.
     C
A picture's worth a thousand words
           Bb
But you cant see what those
                                 F
shades of gray keep covered
                        C
You should've seen it in color

Actually, it's not. No disrespect. Watch the video. He places a capo on the 3rd fret and plays fingerings for G F and C. Which translates to A# G# and D# respectively. So, unless the video is wrong...just saying.

Tell Jamey I said "hello." : ))
