Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Capo on fourth!

     Am         
Pink blossoms on the Mimosa trees
C
Cadas dance, singing soft and sweet
G
Sweat on his neck in the summer heat
                       Am
Kissin' the preacher's daughter

Am
Headlights flashing in their eyes
    C
The shadow of a face they recognized
   G
A single shot split the night
                   Am
Footsteps in muddy water


        G                    F
And the sun came up like the day before
        Am
And her sheets hadn't been turned down
        G                 F
And the boy turned up downstream on the rocks
    Am
Two miles outside of town
        G                   F
She was leavin' church in a white sundress
     Am           D
Last time anybody saw her
    C        D                      Am 
Oh, what's become of the preacher's daughter

         Am
One-eyed woman with her tarot cards
         C
Said she ain't comin' back but she ain't gone far
    G
The devil's a liar and he drives a car
                       Am
Somewhere in Catahoula County


         G                    F
Then the sun came up like the day before
        Am
And her sheets hadn't been turned down
         G                        F
And the search dogs barked on the day they laid
    Am
Her first love in the ground
    G                        F
The preacher's knees buckled in the heat
       Am          D
So the deacon took over
          C       D                      Am
And said "let us pray for the preacher's daughter"

 
    Am
Blue lights flashin' on the riverbank
     C
They held their breath as they dragged the chains
G
Hearts all sank when her beautiful face
                   Am 
Came up out of the water

            Am
Through her tangled hair they could see
C
She was missing one earring
          G
Found the other in the back seat of the car
                            Am
Of the deacon that couldn't have her
    

        G                    F
And the sun came up like the day before
        Am
And her sheets hadn't been turned down
           G                        F
When they slapped the cuffs on the deacon's wrists
          Am
You could hear it all over town
        G                   F
And the headlines read "Justice At Last
   Am             D
Up From The Muddy Water...
      C   D                        Am
The Resurrection of the Preacher's Daughter"
