(Muted Strumming)

G C G, G D C

G                        C       G
When I was young I had a girl so pretty
G                        D       C
When I was young I had a girl so true
G                            C           G
But you left town and headed out for the city
G                           D           C
And you said you were never coming back through

G C G, G D C

G                            C            G
  You got a mama and a papa, sister and a brother
G                    D          C
But you ain't got no friends of mine
G                        C            G
You know I cant tell the one from the other
G                                    D         C
And since you've been gone, Ive been losing my mind.


           G             D           C
And if you find your way back to the river
         G       D           C
Wont you wash my black water soul
             G            D           C
Cause I have found my own way back to shelter
             Em      D/Fsus (mute)
But wont you fi----------nd your way back home

G C G, G D C (x2)

G                      C    G
So I left town about a year ago
G                                    D    C
Ive been to New York, Tree Port, and Chicago
G                               C         G
And every now and then I send a post card home
G                            D     C
Cause being gone don't change being alone

G                       C      G
So if you ever miss the cotton fields
G                                  D         C
You can find me hanging around the Moonshine Still
G                      C       G
Come back home if your love is real
G                           D     C
Cause I ain't scared of the way I feel

Chorus x2

I think the verses sound more like G, C, G and G, D, G
And the chorus I believe is D, C, G for the first 3 lines, and then hold on D for the ending build up.
Thanks for posting!
