[Intro]

G G C G  G G D D  G G C G   C G D Em Em G G 


[Verse 1]

     Em         G
The covey took wing
 D          G
Shotguns a singing
   C            G           D           D
A pointing dog down in the old logging road

 Em        G
Danny got three
     D             G
And looked back a grinning
   C        G           D          D
I fumbled around and I tried to reload

     C           G
The country was cold
          D            G
With the sun westward sinking
      C          G            D       D
It's good to be back in this place

         C      G
With my hands around
   D            G
A Belgian made Browning
    C           G            D      D      D      D
My mind on the lines of her face


[Verse 2]

          Em         G
Well now Danny's my buddy
    D            G
We grew up like family
 C           G        D             D
Hunted this timber before we could drive

     Em          G
The old English pointer
    D             G
He once belonged to me
       C        G         D         D
But I gave him up when I moved in '05

 C          G
Off to the girl
 D          G
Off to the city
 C        G          D       D
Off on a wing and a chance

        C                 G
Hell I thought it'd play out
 D              G
Just like some story
 C          G         D     D      D       D
We fell in love at a rodeo dance


[Chorus]

         G   G          C        G
She said go on back to Cherokee County
           C               G             D           D
Won't you crawl back with nothing but a razor and a comb
 G           G              C            G
Babe, if you need me, I'll be where you found me
 C        G            D              Em     Em      G      G
Go on to hell, honey, I'm headed home


[Verse 3]

           Em           G
Dan says, "Look at old Jim
   D       G
A dozen Decembers
   C           G             D        D
Behind him no worse for the wear

          Em            G
And your time spent in Tulsa
     D             G
Did not help your shooting
     C           G             D        D
And look at the gray in your hair

     C            G  
How good does it feel?
       D             G
You belong in these hills
      C             G          D       D
It's best that you let it all end

               C            G
If you'd have married that girl
            D           G
You'd have married her family
 C            G         D       D       D       D
You dodged a bullet my friend"


[Chorus]

         G   G          C        G
She said go on back to Cherokee County
           C               G             D           D
Won't you crawl back with nothing but a razor and a comb
 G            G             C            G
Babe, if you need me, I'll be where you found me
 C        G            D             Em     Em      G      G
Go on to hell, honey, I'm headed home


[Verse 4]

 Em
I was beginning
    D
To deal with it ending
     Am                        G          D
The old dog had pointed while part of me died

       Em
And a flutter of feathers
        G
Then a shotgun to shoulder
   C              G          D
I thought of the Fourth of July
           C           G          D
She'll be home on the Fourth of July
             C            G          D
I bet we'll dance on the Fourth of July


[Bridge]

G G C G  G G D D  G G C G   C G D Em Em G G G G


[Verse 5]

            C         G
Dan says, "Hell of a shot
 D                       G
Looks like you've still got it
 C              G            D      D
That's what we came here to do

      C            G
It's light enough still
        D           G
At the foot of the hill
          C         G         D     D     D     D
We could kick up a single or two"

         G   G          C        G
She said go on back to Cherokee County
           C               G             D           D
Won't you crawl back with nothing but a razor and a comb
 G            G             C            G
Babe, if you need me, I'll be where you found me
 C        G            D             G
Go on to hell, honey, I'm headed home
 C        G            D             Em          G
Go on to hell, honey, I'm headed home
