"Valdosta" by Corbette Jackson

I got these chords from watching a video of one of his performances.


Intro: F

Verse 1: 
         F              G
She left 3 months after graduation
Dm                 F     
For Valdosta and a higher education.
F                        G                    F
I stayed behind, took a job out there feeding grain.
       F                       G                  
It was late night phone calls, working overtime
Dm                F
Doing anything to keep her mine,
        F                  G                  F
Putting all my hard-earned dough in a diamond ring.

      Dm         G
I was wide-eyed, young, in love,
Dm             G             F
Heading to her college in my pickup truck,
         Dm            G
But when I arrived, to my surprise,
        F                              F
She was on the couch all whiskey-eyed, kissing on some other guy.



Chorus: 
F                           G  
There comes a time when you get taught a lesson
Dm                           F
Making it clear you've got a lot to learn
      F     G         F
About love, life, and women.
     F                     G
Well I learned mine out on Brookwood Drive,
Dm                     F
Things ain't what they seem sometimes,
    F                   G        F
And heartache is just a part of living.
     G                            F
Yeah I know a good education will cost you,
                            F
But I got mine for free, in Valdosta. 



Verse 2: 
  F                         G
I didn't hang around for an explanation,
Dm                 F
I laid out without hesitation
F             G                  F
Right after I spit my dip in his eye. 
          F                 G
But if it wasn't for her promiscuous ways,
         Dm                    F
I'd have never stopped at that cafe
        F                       G                      F 
Where a sweet little brown-eyed girl asked me what I'd like.

        F            G 
I said, "How 'bout a love that lasts,
   Dm                       F
A girl who's looking for an honest man?"
           F      G 
She said, "I know how it feels
F                                           F
When you're out there spinning your wheels, tryna find something real.



Chorus: 
F                           G  
There comes a time when you get taught a lesson
Dm                           F
Making it clear you've got a lot to learn
      F     G         F
About love, life, and women.
     F                     G
Yeah I learned mine out on Brookwood Drive,
Dm                     F
Things ain't what they seem sometimes,
    F                   G        F
And heartache is just a part of living.
     G                            F
Well I know a good education will cost you,
                            F
But I got mine for free, in Valdosta.  

F    G    Dm    F

Bridge:
         Dm  
Now that brown-eyed girl is riding shotgun,
      F 
We've got a sunset and a fifth of rum.
    Dm  
And in my own way, I'm thankful now
         G
for that little South Georgia college town.


Chorus: 
F                           G  
There comes a time when you get taught a lesson
Dm                           F
Making it clear you've got a lot to learn
      F     G         F
About love, life, and women.
    F                     G
Hey I learned mine out on Brookwood Drive,
Dm                     F
Things ain't what they seem sometimes,
    F                   G        F
And heartache is just a part of living.
               F                   G       F
Yeah, I said a heartache is just a part of living.
G                            
I know a good education will cost you,
    F                          F          G      F
But I got mine for free, in Valdosta. 
            F             G      F 
Way down in Valdosta.
 F
Ooohhh. 

End on G
