"Valdosta" by Corbette Jackson

I got these chords from watching a video of one of his performances.


Intro: G

Verse 1: 
G DShe left 3 months after graduation
Em C For Valdosta and a higher education.
G D CI stayed behind, took a job out there feeding grain.
G D It was late night phone calls, working overtime
Em CDoing anything to keep her mine,
G D CPutting all my hard-earned dough in a diamond ring.
Em DI was wide-eyed, young, in love,
Em D CHeading to her college in my pickup truck,
Em DBut when I arrived, to my surprise,
C CShe was on the couch all whiskey-eyed, kissing on some other guy.
Chorus:
G D There comes a time when you get taught a lesson
Em CMaking it clear you've got a lot to learn
G D CAbout love, life, and women.
G DWell I learned mine out on Brookwood Drive,
Em CThings ain't what they seem sometimes,
G D CAnd heartache is just a part of living.
D CYeah I know a good education will cost you,
GBut I got mine for free, in Valdosta.
Verse 2:
G DI didn't hang around for an explanation,
Em CI laid out without hesitation
G D CRight after I spit my dip in his eye.
G DBut if it wasn't for her promiscuous ways,
Em CI'd have never stopped at that cafe
G D C Where a sweet little brown-eyed girl asked me what I'd like.
G D I said, "How 'bout a love that lasts,
Em CA girl who's looking for an honest man?"
G D She said, "I know how it feels
C CWhen you're out there spinning your wheels, tryna find something real.
Chorus:

GBut I got mine for free, in Valdosta.
G D Em C Bridge:
Am Now that brown-eyed girl is riding shotgun,
C We've got a sunset and a fifth of rum.
Am And in my own way, I'm thankful now
Dfor that little South Georgia college town.
Chorus:
