Slaid Cleaves - Flowered Dresses


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


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: G   C   Em   D  

        G                              C 
She was leaning long legged 'neath the bottle cap sign
       Em                    D 
Of the country store, with a coke and a smile 
    G                             C      
The coolest place to linger on an Arkansas day 
         Em                 D 
When she saw him passing by 


               G                              C 
He said, "I'll take you back to Texas, and my name is Ray" 
           Em                        D 
"Where the stars are bigger than the Hit Parade"
        G                              C 
And she stopped dreaming her dream and started dreaming his 
Em                      D 
Traded in her childhood 


CHORUS:
C                 D            G
She wore flowered dresses for him 
C                   D                    G
Rolled her hair and scrubbed her freckled skin 
       C                           D
On the chance that they were going out tonight 
G            ~      C
Catch a show, maybe grab a bite 
                         D               
And she looked real nice
               G
She looked real nice  


                                         C 
Sometimes I think about my daddy and his Old Spice grin
Em                         D 
Clean, pressed shirt and a farmer's tan 
    G                                C 
She never asked him questions and he never told her lies 
      Em                     D 
But I heard my mama cry some 


          G                             C 
And I was sitting in the hallway on the night he left 
Em                D 
Hugging my knees, holding my breath 
      G                          C 
I was never sure why, but he was damn sure gone 
    Em                        D 
Thought it was maybe my fault 


CHORUS:
C                 D            G
She wore flowered dresses for him 
C                   D                    G
Rolled her hair and scrubbed her freckled skin 
       C                           D
On the chance that they were going out tonight 
G            ~      C
Catch a show, maybe grab a bite 
                         D               
And she looked real nice
               G
She looked real nice


INSTRUMENTAL: G  C  Em  D  G  C  Em  D  (2x)


        G                           C 
Now the evening is just starting to chill a bit 
    Em                 D 
The fireflies over the field and it 
G                                   C 
Brings to mind the glider where she used to sit 
Em                                  D 
Count the headlights on the highway 


      G                                      C 
And I think of where you're going, where you are tonight 
Em                                   D 
What you must have seen since I last saw those eyes
  G                     C 
I know I can't win if I do not play 
Em                         D 
This whole thing scares me 


CHORUS:
C                 D            G
She wore flowered dresses for him 
C                   D                    G
Rolled her hair and scrubbed her freckled skin 
       C                           D
On the chance that they were going out tonight 
G            ~      C
Catch a show, maybe grab a bite 
                         D               
And she looked real nice
               G
She looked real nice
        C                D
And she looked real nice
               G       C  D  G
She looked real nice
