Intro isn't 100% (I'm new at tabs) but it gets the basic sound.


(Verse 1)
            G 
I said grandpa whats this picture here 
          F
Its all black and white and it aint real clear 
      C
Is that you there? 
                   G
He said yeah i was 11 
G
Times were tough back in '35 
     F
Thats me and uncle Joe just tryin to survive 
    C                         G
A cotton farm in the great depression.

(Chorus)
       G                                                                       
If it looks like we were scared to death 
        F                                       C
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other 
                           G
You should've seen it in color.

(Verse 2)
Ohh and this one here was taken over seas 
In the middle of hell in 1943 
In the winter time you can almost see my breath 
That was my tail gunner ole Johnny Magee 
He was a high school teacher from New Orleans 
And he had my back right through the day we left.

(Chorus)
If it looks like we were scared to death 
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other 
You shoulda seen it in color.
A picture's worth a thousand words 
But you cant see what those 
shades of gray keep covered 
You shoulda seen it in color

(Verse 3)
This one is my favorite one. 
This is me and grandma in the summer sun 
All dressed up the day we said our vows. 
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June 
That rose was red and her eyes were blue 
And just look at that smile I was so proud. 

(Bridge)
Em              D         C
      Thats the story of my life 
Em           D              C      D
      Right there in black and white

(Chorus)
If it looks like we were scared to death 
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other 
You should've seen it in color.
A picture's worth a thousand words 
But you cant see what those 
shades of gray keep covered 
You should've seen it in color
