Smoke Rise
by Clay Cook and Zac Brown
Album
CAPO 2ND FRET



 D
SHE WAS SOMETHING IN HER FORMATIVE YEARS

       G
SHE'D HIDE HER ACCENT IT WOULD REAPPEAR

      D                                         A
WHEN SHE WOULD BRAG ON WHAT DADDY BOUGHT LAST NIGHT

         D
ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS WERE IN THAT CROWD

     G
TO TEASE A HAND FULL OF POOR KIDS OUT LOUD

      D           A              D
AND EVEN THEN I KNEW IT WASN'T RIGHT





-CHORUS-

  G     A    D               G
SMOKE RISE, YOU WERE NEVER KIND

  G    A                    D
GOOD NEWS I LEFT YOU ALL BEHIND

  G   A   D        A         G
SOME WHO HOPE THAT IT WOULD LAST

  A                                D
SMOKE RISE I'M GLAD YOU'RE IN MY PAST


D
MOST OF THE KIDS WERE BETTER THAN ME
       G
OR AT LEAST THEY THOUGHT SO AND IT WAS PLAIN TO SEE
      D                                              A
THE CHILDREN WERE CRUEL AND I DIDN'T HAVE A FIGHTING CHANCE
           D
I WASN'T A JOCK, I WASN'T A BRAIN
     G
WE WEREN'T WELL OFF AND MAMA COULDN'T EXPLAIN
    D                   A               D
WHY NO ONE WOULD TAKE A POOR BOY TO THE DANCE

-CHORUS 2X-

D
SPOILED RICH KIDS FIND IT HARD TO EMBRACE
          G
WHEN THEY BUS BLACK KIDS FROM ALL OVER THE PLACE
      D                                              A
THE COUNTY TRIED TO PROVE THEIR SCHOOLS WERE ALL THE SAME
        D
OL' JIM CROW TRIED TO INTEGRATE
    G
BUT IN THE SOUTH IT'S HARD TO RELATE
     D                 A               D
WHEN GRANDPA USED THE "N" WORD WITH NO SHAME

-CHORUS 2X-
