Track 1 - Sugar Creek Mountain



[Intro]
G   C G   D G   (2x)

[Verse 1]
                  C          G
High and handsome stands the peak
                             D     G
There stands the mountain of Sugar Creek
                    C    G
Come sassy bees and sexy knees 
                        D        G      C G   D G   
And possums swingin’ on sycamore trees


[Verse 2]
                         C             G
You can sit and stare at nothin’ in particular
                    D            G
Sit and dream where life’s perpendicular
                  C         G
Sky and trees and rocks and ground
                    D    G      C G   D G
All up and down and all around


[Chorus]
           N.C.
You’re home little gal, so do-si-do
      C           G            D        G
Round Sugar Creek Mountain and don’t be slow
    N.C.
Four steps back and better be counting
   C           G       D             G    C  G   D G   C G   D G
Or you’ll step off ol’ Sugar Creek - Mountain__


[Instrumental]
G     C G D G     C G D G   C G   D G


[Verse 3]
                             C         G
You wait for the wisdom that wind will bring
                          D        G
You learn how to live and love and sing
                    C        G
Breathe in deep and feel the burning
                     D           G         C G   D G   
Deeper than life and deeper than learning


[Verse 4]
                        C          G
Wild sweet notes from a wild sweet throat
                   D          G
Echoing songs that never been wrote
                      C          G
Wild and sweet like a sugar cane treat
                       D         G     C G   D G 
Dance the fellas right off their feet


[Chorus]
           N.C.
You’re home little gal, so do-si-do
      C           G            D        G
Round Sugar Creek Mountain and don’t be slow
    N.C.
Four steps back and better be counting
   C           G       D             G    C  G   D G   C G   D G
Or you’ll step off ol’ Sugar Creek - Mountain__


[Bridge]

With the feet a-prancin’ and your blood a-dancing
C      G                   D         G
Eyes a-glancin’ while your heart’s romancin’ 

Swing to the music of that clear sweet fountain
     C               G       D           G         C G   D G
That slides down the side of Sugar Creek Mountain


[Verse 5]
                               C        G
You can’t get to heaven if you push and shove
                   D       G
Just promenade the one you love
               C      G
Oh, by Joe and oh, by gee
                           D          G    C G   D G   
Don’t look at her when you dance with me 


[Verse 6]
                               C        G
Dive through the middle, don’t shove or push
                     D        G
Keep goin’ round the mulberry bush
                C      G
Oh, by gosh and oh, by Joe
                           D       G      C G   D G
This may be the last time, I don’t know


[Chorus]
           N.C.
You’re home little gal, so do-si-do
      C           G            D        G
Round Sugar Creek Mountain and don’t be slow
    N.C.
Four steps back and better be counting
   C           G       D               G 
Or you’ll step off ol’ Sugar Creek  -  Mountain

Like a sparrow on the ground
          D   
I’ve been lost 
     C                D
On a river that won’t flow
          G
I’ve been hurt
                C                G
Well, I’ve been weeping, sad and lonely

I’ve been down
N.C.         G
But not that low


[Verse 1]

I lost my home, I have no pillow
          D
I make my bed under the willow
            G
An old wool coat hung o’er my shoulder
               C
The nights are long and getting colder
              G               D7
Oh, I’ve been down, I’ve been down

But so does every poor born sinner
             G
Oh, you have fame and you have money
          C
Enough to buy you sugar and honey
               G                    D7
Lay your money down, lay your money down

My shirts too big my boots are battered

My skirts too long it’s worn and tattered
            G
I ain’t got no fine clothes for Sunday
               C
And I’ll look just as poor on Monday

Oh, I’ve been down, I’ve been down


[Verse 4]
         G
You have everything folks desire
         D
You have anyone you want for hire
             G
So you think I will wear your red gown
       C
If you lay your money down
               G                    D7
Lay your money down, lay your money down

On a river that won’t flow

I’ve been hurt

Track 5 - Low Side Of Town


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
A

[Verse 1]

Well, I danced all night 
A
With the farmer in the dell 

On the high side of heaven 
A
Near the hot side of hell
          G             F
Well, the farmer took a wife 
    A
The wife took the chance
        G            F
Cut the cards with a knife
    E7
Now I’m left to dance
N.C.              A
On the low side of town


[Verse 2]

On the push side of shove 
A
On the inside of out

On the left side of love 
A
On the sure side of doubt
       G             F
On the wrong side of right 
       A
On the steep side of down
       G            F
On the long side of night 
       E7
On the low side of town
N.C.                 A
On the low___ side of town


[Verse 3]

Spend my days in a daze
A
But night after night

Walk through streets like a maze
A
Stay amazed till daylight
         G         F
When you hi-ho the derry-o
     A
I’ve watched love go round
      G             F
Never learned to be wary, so
          E7
I’m still dancing ‘em down
N.C.              A
On the low side of town


[Instrumental]
A    G  F  A    G  F  E7    A


[Verse 4]

Pass the farmer, now crying
A
Drinking memories down

Pass the farmer’s wife sighing
A
Wearing yesterday’s gown
     G           F
Like three blind mice
     A
Once more on our own
          G        F
Oh, we’ve left paradise
       E7
And we all stand alone
N.C.                 A
On the low___ side of town

  Am                                    F                E
I thought you’d treat it gently, like a precious work of art
  Am       C              D            F
I never realized it could break so easily
                                       E              Am
And I never knew the pieces would work better separately


[Chorus]
          G         F           E
One love, two love, three love, four
Am        G          F           E
Who is it now that’s walking the floor
Am                G       F           E
Sorry, don’t have time to call you anymore
                Am
‘Cause when you broke my heart, you broke it in four____

[Verse 2]
              Am            C        D              E
Now there's a quarter of my heart in Memphis, Tennessee
        Am                  F              E
And two boys back in 'Bama, two and number three
Am               C           D                F
Number four from Texas, says I’m his queen of queens
                                     E             Am
Oh, the pieces of my heart sure look good in faded jeans


[Chorus]
          G         F           E
One love, two love, three love, four
Am        G          F           E
Who is it now that’s walking the floor
Am                G       F           E
Sorry, don’t have time to call you anymore
                Am
‘Cause when you broke my heart, you broke it in four____

[Verse 3]
                              C        D                E
Now there are still a few old boys who wouldn’t feel so bad
           Am                            F              E
If I could give them just a piece of the heart you once had
    Am                 C             D          F
Someday I’ll marry one boy and we'll never ever part
                                      E            Am
But he’s got to claim all four of the pieces of my heart


[Chorus]
          G         F           E
One love, two love, three love, four
Am              G     F       E
See them lining up outside my door
      Am      G         F             E
All positions filled, I can’t take anymore
                Am
‘Cause when you broke my heart, you broke it in four____


[Chorus]
          G         F           E
One love, two love, three love, four
Am        G          F           E
Who is it now that’s walking the floor
Am                G       F           E
Sorry, don’t have time to call you anymore
                Am                               N.C.
‘Cause when you broke my heart, you broke it in - four____

Track 7 - Fields Of Glory


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[Verse 1]    (sung a Capella)
N.C.   (C)                   (F)           (C)
Oh, the chapel on the hill is ringing out a call
                                    (F)         (G)
Saying, all you sinner’s come or get ready for a fall
   (C)                                 (F)             (C)
And I’ll be there in a faded dress, but I’ll be looking sweet
                                                 (G)         (C)
And there won’t be a soul who’ll care, there’s no shoes on my feet


[Chorus]
       G                            C
Up the mountain of fury, 'cross the river of fear
         F             C               G              C
Down the valley of the shadow, I’ll be running like a deer
       F           C      F            C
When I come to the end of life’s great story
                                 G         C
I will walk barefoot through the fields of glory


[Verse 2]
N.C.  C                        F             C
I was born a simple girl and a simple life I lead
                                                F                   G
And there’s not too many folks around who could say that’s all they need
      C                                F             C
Don’t mean to brag about the peaceful, simple life I choose
                                            G                   C
But the roads don’t seem so rough, when I'm wearing high-heeled shoes


[Chorus]
       G                            C
Up the mountain of fury, 'cross the river of fear
         F             C               G              C
Down the valley of the shadow, I’ll be running like a deer
       F           C      F            C
When I come to the end of life’s great story
            F   C                G         C
I will walk barefoot through the fields of glory


[Verse 3]
N.C.     C                            F              C
Now they say that River Jordan is too wide a swim to dare
                                            F              G
But they used to say our sins were just too big a cross to bear
        C                                  F             C
And you know you’re bound to wander down a dusty winding road
                                             G            C
So the more you give, the less you have, the lighter your load


[Chorus]
       G                            C
Up the mountain of fury, 'cross the river of fear
         F             C               G              C
Down the valley of the shadow, I’ll be running like a deer
       F           C      F            C
When I come to the end of life’s great story
            F   C                G         C
I will walk barefoot through the fields of glory


[Instrumental]
C    F  C     F  G  C    F  C    G  C


[Chorus]
         G                            C
From the mountain of fury, 'cross the river of fear
         F             C               G              C
Down the valley of the shadow, I’ll be running like a deer
       F           C      F            C
When I come to the end of life’s great story
N.C.                            (G)          (C)
I will walk barefoot through the fields of glory

[Verse 1]

Hey, look yonder coming, a-coming down the railroad track 
    F                                               C
Oh, look yonder coming, a-coming down that railroad track
             G                                       C
Ah, it's the Orange Blossom Special bringing my baby back
 
 
[Verse 2]
                                                    
Well, I'm going down to Florida and get some sand all in my shoes 
   F                                            C
Or maybe California and get some sand all in my shoes 
               G                                              C
I'll ride that Orange Blossom Special and lose these New York blues

Hey, talk about her travelling, she's the fastest train on the line 
    F                                                             C
Oh, talk about her rambling, well, she's the fastest train on the line 
                G                                                C
Well, it's that Orange Blossom Special rolling down the seaboard line

Track 9 - Satin Skirt And Dancin' Shoes


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
Am  F  E7  Am    F  E7  Am

[Verse 1]
                F              E7
They built this club back when I was three
      Am       F           E7  Am
Momma sang for dollars and Daddy drank for free
                      F              E7
While I’d hide in the kitchen eatin’ rich folk’s hors d’oeuvres
    Am                F         E7                  Am
And listenin’ to them talk about Momma's sweet young curves


[Chorus]
                 F           E7
Now, Momma was a lady, never did nothin’ wrong
Am              F              D             Am
Lord, could she help it if her legs were too long
                      F                E7
She sang hymns Sunday mornings, but at night she’d sing the blues
       Am    F         D       Am     F  E7  Am
In her satin skirt and dancin’ shoes


[Verse 2]
                     F             E7
There’s a picture of Momma hanging over the bar
     Am            F           E7          Am
Papa said that one day he would make her a star
              F   E7
But time goes by, dreams and pictures fade
      Am      F           E7      Am
Cruel drink became Papa’s only crusade


[Chorus]
       F         E7
Broken hearts and cigarette smoke
      Am         F         D 
Well, I spent my time just growing up broke
    Am          F            E7
I’d wear Papa’s shirt, still smellin’ of the booze
            Am    F         D       Am
And Momma’s satin skirt and dancin’ shoes


[Instrumental]
Am  F  E7  Am    F  E7  Am


[Verse 3]
                    F        E7
Well, Papa drank himself six feet under dirt
Am             F           E7     Am
Momma, she got tired of her satin skirt
               F           E7
She left it to me with her shoes and a note
      Am         F        E7           Am
“When life is funny”, was all that she wrote


[Chorus]
              F         E7
Well, I don't know how I made it this far
  Am           F            D          Am
I didn’t learn much in that lonely old bar
                     F        E7
But I learned how to flirt and to sing the blues
           Am    F         D       Am
In Momma’s satin skirt and dancin’ shoes


[Instrumental]
Am  F  E7  Am    F  E7  Am


[Chorus]
                     F               E7
Oh, now, Momma was a lady, oh, never did nothin’ wrong
        Am           F            D             Am
But her hair was too wavy and her legs were too long
                   F          E7
She’d look like an angel with nothing left to lose
           Am    F         D       Am  
Oh, in her satin skirt and dancin’ shoes
                        F               E7
She’d praise god Sunday morning, but at night she’d sing the blues
     Am    F         D       Am
In a satin skirt and dancin’ shoes

## NOTE: ~ = Bass Walk-Down from G to Em ##




[Intro]
G ~ Em    C D G  C   G  C

[Verse 1]
      Em                         C                  G
Do we close our curtains when we hear our neighbour call
      D                             C             G
So we won’t see him suffer when his back's to the wall?
~     Em                  C               G
Do we sit back silent and watch a brother fall?
      D                      C            G    C   G  C
Do we love so little, we are no friend at all?


[Chorus 1]
      D
Do we look right past him 
  C               G     ~
Tell him life’s a glass thing
Em                        C      D
Prone to shatter, full of vast unknowns
         G
Where we pay for every last thing 
    C             G    ~
And retribution’s fast sting
Em                  C    D   G          C   G  C
Comes from hands forever casting stones


[Verse 2]
      Em                  C           G
Do we cut and condemn and never comprehend
     D                 C       G    ~
That trust can turn into a dividend
    Em                  C             G
And love will leave you richer in the end
         D                      C       G      C   G  C
Or do we love so little, we are no true friend


[Chorus 2]
          D
Oh, is it easier to blast him 
    C                  G   ~
And spend our time forecasting
     Em                    C             D
That he’ll, no doubt, lose everything he owns
     G
We remember every past thing 
    C            G   ~
Our memory’s everlasting
    Em           C    D       G      C   G  C
And so we are forever casting stones


[Instrumental]
Em    C D G  C   G  C


[Verse 3]
        Em                   C       G
When he looks on luck, do we have to have it
        D                     C        G
When he bends his back, do we reach to stab it
~     Em                       C      G
If he has a little hope, do we always grab it
    D                     C         G       C   G  C
And drag him down, like a hound on a rabbit


[Chorus 1]
      D
Do we look right past him 
  C               G     ~
Tell him life’s a glass thing
Em                        C      D
Prone to shatter, full of vast unknowns
         G
Where we pay for every last thing 
    C             G    ~
And retribution’s fast sting
Em                  C    D
Comes from hands forever
  G                  C            G   ~
Remember casting are memories everlasting
    Em N.C.
And so we are forever casting stones

Track 11 - One Last Dance



[Intro]
G  C  D

[Verse 1]
           G         Em         C       D
Those blue eyes that shined all over my world
        G            Em         C      D
Somehow seem to have lost their light
          G          Em            C        D
And those lips, they don’t seem to smile anymore
    G             Em          C      D
Not even when I’m holding him tight


[Verse 2]
       G           C
I’m no good on the phone 
           G         C
And I’m no good all alone
  G          Em           C      D
I need to be close to his heart
           G            C
But I’m no good for him now 
             G          C
And he keeps telling me how
     G               C         D       C  D
He’s desperate for a brand new start


[Pre-Chorus]
      G           Em             C         D
Lord, help me I’m falling like a burnt out star
       G          Em       C   D
That’s kissed the moon goodbye___
G           Em             C            D
This is the last time I’ll shine in the night
    C                D      G   C  G/B  G  C
The last time you’ll see me cry


[Chorus]
     D                       C           G
I’ve tossed away flowers and found love again
    D                C          G
But this time there’s no second chance
Em                     C           D
Don’t want no other boy to love again
           G  C        D               G         C  D    G  C  D
Just want a dozen blue roses and one last dance


[Verse 3]
           G   Em     C       D
Where am I now, where was I before
        G      Em         C    D
I can’t even remember my life
             G    Em   C           D
He’s been my world for such a long time
    G           Em          C      D
And leaving him cuts like a knife


[Verse 4]
     G              C
I still feel like a child
       G                C
And my heart still runs wild
       G         Em      C    D
Like a river without any end
       G               C
But he don’t love this child 
        G                C
Or this heart, rough and wild
         G             C    D      C  D
And it’s too late to begin again


[Pre-Chorus]
      G           Em             C         D
Lord, help me I’m falling like a burnt out star
       G          Em       C   D
That’s kissed the moon goodbye___
G           Em             C            D
This is the last time I’ll shine in the night
    C                D      G   C  G/B  G  C
The last time you’ll see me cry


[Chorus]
     D                       C           G
I’ve tossed away flowers and found love again
    D                C          G
But this time there’s no second chance
Em                     C           D
Don’t want no other boy to love again
           G  C        D               G         C  D    G  C  D
Just want a dozen blue roses and one last dance
N.C.
Just one last dance

Track 12 - Thank You Very Much


CAPO: 5th Fret



[Intro]
G  C  G  D  (3x)
G  C  D  G

[Verse 1]
                   C
I slammed shut the old door
  G                 D
I walked across the cold floor
           G              C             G               D
Grabbed my banjo from the corner and my fiddle from the bed
G              C
Tired of being so poor
G             D
I could eat a dinosaur
     G                C              D            G    C  G  D  G
It’s hard to feel the music when you feel so underfed


[Verse 2]
              C
I left down a dark lane
  G                D
I looked through a window pane
G              C                 G               D
Saw rich folks sleeping on their satin and their lace
G               C
Folks who never felt the rain
G               D
Folks who never jumped a train
G               C          D     G     C  G  D  G
Folks who never slept on a banjo case


[Chorus]
                          F              G
Oh, Momma and Dad passed away when I was little
                         F              G
Momma left the banjo and Daddy left the fiddle
                        F         C
They both left me their Tennessee touch___
           G              F          C          G     
And I said thank you very much, very much, very much


[Interlude]
Bb F G  F   G   Bb F G   F


[Verse 3]
  G            C
I headed for a pawn shop
  G                  D
I thought I’d make a quick swap
        G        C               G          D
I would trade my future for some cash in my pocket
  G             C
Before I got to make my drop
G               D
Something eerie made me stop
    G          C         D              G       C  G  D  G
And bring that fiddle to my chin like a rocket


[Verse 4]
                      C
The sound grew like a bad weed 
    G             D
And leaped like a swift steed
       G       C              G                    D
Like a runaway wagon, it went coursing through the air
  G                C
I played it like a done deed
  G           D
I sang like a soul freed
  G      C             D      G     C  G  D  G
I wasn’t poor, I was a millionaire


[Chorus]
                          F              G
Oh, Momma and Dad passed away when I was little
                         F              G
Momma left the banjo and Daddy left the fiddle
                        F         C
They both left me their Tennessee touch___
           G              F          C          G     
And I said thank you very much, very much, very much


[Instrumental]
Bb F G  F   G   Bb F G   F    G
G  C  G  D  (3x)
G  C  D  G  C  G  D  G
 

[Verse 5]
                        C
Oh, it thundered like a stampede
   G               D
It shook me like a bent reed
       G       C              G                    D
Like a runaway wagon, it went coursing through the air
  G                C
I played it like a done deed
  G           D
I sang like a soul freed
  G      C             D      G     C  G  D  G
I wasn’t poor, I was a millionaire


[Chorus]
                          F              G
Oh, Momma and Dad passed away when I was little
                         F              G
Momma left the banjo and Daddy left the fiddle
                        F         C
They both left me their Tennessee touch___
           G              F          C          G     
And I said thank you very much, very much, very much
N.C.
Thank you very much


[Outro]
G    Bb    G    D  G  Bb F G  F    G  F  G  F    
G  Bb F G  F    G  Bb F G  F    G
