Tony Joe White - Clovis Green

Em

C       D                  Em 
Clovis Green was a wealthy man
   C                D            Em
He made his living raising sugar cane
C                D                 Em
He had spent his life working the land
D                              Em
Just outside the town of New Orleans

    C              D              Em 
His daughter Angelie was an only child
    C             D          Em 
She was a lovely girl of seventeen
          C              D           Em
You would never find her out running wild
     D                       Em  
She was a debutante in New Orleans

G                           F
Sent her off to the finest school
C                            Em
So very young never paid no dues
G                               F
Her momma said "honey you can't lose
C                                   Em
We've got your life planned out for you"

But they reveived a letter in the spring
And she wrote "I know ya'll think I'm crazy
But I'm coming home I've broken all your dreams
Cause you see, I'm going to have a baby"

And his wife looked at him and said
"Clovis, can you tell me true
What in the world are we gonna do
We've given her everything we can
Lord sometimes I just don't understand"

A child was born in the fall
But nobody ever mentioned the father
But when all the neighbors came to call
They would say he looked just like his mother
