I searched EVERYWHERE online and never found a version even remotely close to Black's original recording.
While I love BlackHawk and their unique brand of country music, I actually prefer Black's
version--the unabridged version; so here it is!

“That’s Just About Right” Jeff Black
CAPO 3
A Bm G D x2
A Bm D 
A Bm G
G

A Bm D
My old friend lives up in the mountains
A Bm D
He flew up there to paint the world
A Bm D
He says even though interpretation's what I count on
A Bm D
This little picture to me seems blurred
A Bm D
Hard lines and the shadows come easy
A Bm D
I see it all just as clear as a bell
A Bm D
I just can't seem to set my easel to please me
A Bm D
I paint my heaven and it looks like hell

F#m                  G
Is it me or is my vision jaded?
     D                   A
If I ask you, will you tell me true?
        F#m                       G
I say, no and yes, I think the world you've painted
            D                     A
Man, it's just the way that it appears to you

          G                  A       D
Oh, your blue might be gray, Your less might be more
        G                                A                D
Your window to the world might be the big front door
        G         A                     Bm              G
Your shiniest day might come in the middle of the night
G
That's just about right

A Bm D
He says, man I ain't coming down
A Bm D
Until my picture is perfect
A Bm D
And all the wonder has gone from my eyes
A Bm D
Down through my hands and on to the canvas
A Bm D
Still like my vision but still a surprise
A Bm D
Still life he says is the hardest impression
A Bm D
Man It's always moving so I just let it come through
A Bm D
That my friend I say is the glory of true independence
A Bm D
Just to do what you do (what you do what you do

 
F#m                  G
I don't think people's visions get jaded
              D            A
I think the times change and so does the truth
F#m                       G
So in that I think the world you've painted
          D                          A
Man it’s just the way that it appears to you

          G                  A       D
Oh, your blue might be gray, Your less might be more
        G                                A                D
Your window to the world might be the big front door
        G         A                     Bm              G
Your shiniest day might come in the middle of the night
G
That's just about right

A Bm G D
We ended our talk on how many friendships had faded
A Bm G D
And nowadays what makes a picture seem real
A Bm G D
The simpler versions are not complicated
A Bm G D
Thanks for the brushes man I'll see you next year
A Bm G D
So let's roll on we know what we're here for
A Bm G D
Souvenirs of all that we've seen
A Bm G D
So write a story paint or yourself or paint the town
A Bm G D
And when you look around hey you know where you've been

F#m                  G
If you wonder if your vision is jaded
     D                   A
You just ask someone who will tell you true
F#m                             G
One true friend who sees all that you've painted
                D                       A
They’ll say hey man, that looks just like you 
                                (how do you do it?)

          G                  A       D
Oh, your blue might be gray, Your less might be more
        G                                A                D
Your window to the world might be the big front door
        G         A                     Bm              G
Your shiniest day might come in the middle of the night
  G                  A       D
 your blue might be gray, Your less might be more
        G                                A                D
Your window to the world might be the big front door
        G         A                     Bm              G
Your shiniest day might come in the middle of the night
G
That's just about right

A Bm G D x2
