In Color
Jamey Johnson
Capo 3rd Fret
Intro: G F C G
Verse 1
G
I said,"Grandpa what's this picture here?
F
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
Times were tough back in '35
F
That's me and Uncle Joe just tryin' to survive
C
A cotton farm
G
And a great depression

Chorus
G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F
Like a couple of kids tryin' to save each other
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color

Verse 2
G
Awe and this one here's taken overseas
F
In the middle of Hell in 1943
C                                         G
In the winter time, you can almost see my breath
G
That was my tail gunner: Ole Johnny McGee
F
He was a High School teacher from New Orleans
C                                           G
And he had my back, right through the day we left



Chorus
G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F
Like a couple of kids tryin' to save each other
C                             G 
You should've seen it in color
G
A pictures worth a thousand words
F                                                 C
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color.

Verse 3
G
This one is my favorite one. 
F
This is me and grandma in the summer sun 
C                                   G 
All dressed up the day we said our vows. 
G
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June 
F
That rose was red and her eyes were blue 
C                                    G
And just look at that smile I was so proud. 

Bridge
Em              D/F         C
      That's the story of my life 
Em           D/F               C      D
      Right there in black and white

Chorus
G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F
Like a couple of kids tryin' to save each other
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color
G
A pictures worth a thousand words
F
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color.

G
A picture’s worth a thousand words
F
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.
C                      G 
You should've seen it in color.

God Bless, y'all! ~G
