Ben Sollee - Prettiest Tree On The Mountain chords

You can pretty much figure out the finger picking for yourself, I personally
 like plucking the strings at "But neither you nor I'd been" and single
downstrokes at "sure ain't gonna hold you down." Also, I think in some
versions he holds the F at "Hills of Kentucky" for an extra measure. Enjoy!

C FWell a robin flew by my window
C GI thought it just might be you
CJudging from the colour of its breast
FAnd the sound of its song
C G C But I'm just thinking of you
Cos you're in sunny California The fertile land John Steinbeck wrote, But when I came not a single fertile patch Could be spared for you and me
F G CYou see I wanted to love you baby
C GBut neither you nor I'd been loved before
C F I thought I could change the world if I just held you high enough
C G CThe truth is I couldn't hold you up at all
Am G FI couldn't hold you up
Am G CI couldn't hold you up
G CAnd I sure ain't gonna hold you down
CWell I'm leaving
FWalking back home
C GI don't care if it takes years or more
C FBut as I walk through the hills of Kentucky
C GThe leaves begin to turn red
Am G FAnd I think of you
Am G CYes, I think of you
G C The prettiest tree on the mountain.
