[Verse 1]

    G                             C
Why you with your long brown hair flowing
    D                            G
And you with your fresh tattooed skin
    G                    C
And you from the western Virginia
           D                  G
That you’ll never get to see again

[Verse 2]
   G                      C
As darkness descended the desert
      D                        G
And a bad actor starred in his play
    G                           C
Why you from Tennessee did life capture
    D                      G
And me from Tennessee get away

[Chorus]
             C                   G
And when the morning sun hit the mountains
      C        D                Em
And a glorious still calmed the breeze
            C          D       G
I asked the God of all knowing wisdom
    C       D       G
Why you and why not me?

[Verse 3]
         G                     C
Yeah the lord is my refuge and fortress
   D               G
My god with whom I trust
         G                  C
But I’ll never know why the wicked
        D                   G
Gets to prey on the best of us

{Verse 4}
    G                    C
Why you full of life and promise
       D                    G
At the top of your lungs so loud
   G                                   C
My songs that you sang so sweetly will ring
      D            G
In my ears forever now

[Chorus]
             C                   G
And when the morning sun hit the mountains
      C        D                Em
And a glorious still calmed the breeze
            C          D       G
I asked the God of all knowing wisdom
    C       D       G
Why you and why not me?

[Chorus]
          C                             G
And every morning when the sun hits the mountain
      C              D         Em
And a glorious still calms the breeze
             C      D       G
I’ll ask the god of my salvation
    C       D       G
Why you and why not me?
    C       D       G
Why you and why not me?
