Janie Frickes part is in ()
Intro:
  C 

#1:

C                         F            Dm
She just sat there and she brushed her hair
G                          C     F G
 Lord it sure was dark and long
C                    F          Dm
 I got up and drank a half warm beer
G                           C
 Found my boots and put 'em on.

#2:

C                         F           Dm
She was not sure where she stood with me
G                            C        F G
 As she straightened out her clothes
C                        F     Dm
 So I kissed her warm red lips again
G                         C
 And I whispered soft and low,


Chorus close harmony duet between Johnny and Janie:

C                               F
Baby, It couldn't have been any better
F  G                      C
It couldn't have been any sweeter
C  F                         Dm
We couldn't have climbed any higher
Dm      D7                     G
If we'd been to the top of the world
C                        F
We couldn't have got any closer
F  G                      C
We couldn't have gone any farther
F                         Dm
It couldn't have been any better
Dm            G7            C       A7  D
And you're my best friends girl.


#3: 

D                     G          Em
With a tender look she said good night
A                       D   G A
 And I turned to walk away
D                         G         Em
 Just before I closed that door and left
A                        D
 I could hear her softly say 


Chorus :

D                               G
Baby, It couldn't have been any better
                                      (It couldn't have been any) 
G      A                      D
It     couldn't have been any sweeter
(better)                               (It couldn't have been any) 
D       G                         Em
We      couldn't have climbed any higher
(sweeter)
Em      E7                     A     A7
If we'd been to the top of the world

D                        G
We couldn't have got any closer
                              (We couldn't have got any)

   G       A                      D
   We      couldn't have gone any farther
(closer)                           (We couldn't have got any)
  G                         Em
  It couldn't have been any better
(farther)
Em            A7           D
And you're my best friends girl.

Chorus to finis:
D                         G    
It couldn't have been any better
                                      (It couldn't have been any) 
G      A                      D
It     couldn't have been any sweeter
(better)                               (It couldn't have been any) 
D       G                         Em
We      couldn't have climbed any higher   
(sweeter)                               FADE
