open pit mine by George Jones

 C				Am	     C
From Morenci, Arizona where the copper mines glow
C			    Am	    C
I could see Clifton in the canyon below
C			    Am		  C
In Clifton lived Rosey, we danced and we dined
C			   G	     C
On the money I made in the open pit mine.

C			   Am		C
I loved my sweet Rosey and she loved me too
C				Am	    C
There was nothin' for Rosey that I wouldn't do
C				   Am	     C
Her hugs and her kisses they were something devine
C				G	C
Gave me reason for working the open pit mine.

--- Instrumental ---

C				Am	  C
While I was out walkin' with my Rosey one day
C			       Am	C
We passed a store window with rings on display
C				Am	       C	
I bought those she wanted, how they really did shine
C				    G	     C
With the money I scraped from that open pit mine.

C				     Am		   C	
Her love would bring heartbreak that I would soon learn
C				 Am	     C
'Cause she would concern me when my back was turned?
C			    Am		 C	
Rosey would go dancin' and drink the red wine
C				     G	      C
While I worked like a slave in that open pit mine.

--- Instrumental ---
C			    Am		C
One night I caught Rosey on her rendevous
C			         Am	   C
She was huggin' and kissin' with somebody new
C				    Am		     C	
It was there that I shot 'em while their arms were entwined
C				G	C
Then I buried her deep in that open pit mine.

C				Am	   C
I took a look at my future and what did I see
C			       Am	    C
There was nothin' but trouble a-waiting for me
C				  Am	   C
But on the sun's next rising I'll be satisfied
