In Color
Jamey Johnson



This is my very first tab. Please let me know if there are any mistakes.

I am sick and tired of people writing tabs that have the "F" chord in them
for this song. THIS TAB IS THE CLOSEST TO BEING CORRECT ON THE
INTERNET!! I even wrote up the intro. It's not 100% correct but it's
damn close for being transposed from multiple guitars.

G
I said Grandpa what's this picture here

         Cadd9
It's all black and white and it ain't real clear

   C                                  G
Is that you there He said yeah, I was 11

    G
And times were tough back in '35

       Cadd9
That's me and Uncle Joe just tryin' to survive

   C                            G
A cotton farm in the Great Depression

If it looks like we were scared to death

Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other

                             G
You should've seen it in color


*Verse*

        G
Ooh and this one was taken overseas

       Cadd9                         C
In the middle of hell in 1933 in the winter time

                         G
You can almost see my breath


That was my tailgunner ol' Johnny Mcgee

         Cadd9                                       C
He was a high school teacher from New Orleans and he had my back

                            G
Right through the day we left


*Chorus*

      G
If it looks like we were scared to death

       C                                        C/G
Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other 

                             G
You should've seen it in color


A picture's worth a thousand words

        C                                           C/G
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered

                             G  C  C/G  G
You should've seen it in color

        Cadd9
This is me and Grandma in the summer sun

C                                     G
All dressed up the day we said our vows


You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
   
     Cadd9
That rose was red and her eyes were blue

     C                                G   Em
Just look at that smile, I was so proud


*Bridge*

Em                     Cadd9(2)  Em

Em                       Cadd9
Right there in black and white

You should've seen it in color
