Snowcone Man
By Adam Carroll

D                  F#
Out in the hot sun standing in line
G                   E7 
Buying snowcones in summertime
       D        A                  D    A
Buying snowcones from the snowcone man
D                 F#
How many cones in July have you sold
G                                      E7
Can't sell 'em at Christmas time, it's too damn cold
         D        A                  D      A
Said the snowcone, said the snowcone man

Can't get no cone for a nickel or a dime
Can I date your sister, she's mighty fine
Mr snowcone, Mr. snowcone man
Your sister Jeanie she bought me two
Cherry for love, and grape for blue
Mr. Snowcone, Mr. Snowcone man

Instrumental

He gave me directions to her whereabouts
Said if she likes you, you shouldask her out
Thank ya snowcone, thank you snowcone man
She's got a big, big boyfriend, he might give me a whipping
He bought me a yellow one and called me chicken
I said thank you Mr. Snowcone man

Took my yellow snowcone, I was on my way
Stopped and bought a pretty rose bouquet
With the snowcone, with the snowcone man
Found her house, she was at the door
Snowcone cups scattered on the floor
From her brother, from the snowcone man

She saw my flowers, she said everybody knows
A yellow snowcone is better than a red rose
Be my snowcone, won't you be my snowcone man
She cried watermelon tears, the prettiest I ever seen
Gave me kisses and my tongue turned green
Lime green flavor from a snowcone man

She said my big big boyfriend, I don't like him at all
He's got a hard head and his snowcone's too small
Little snowcone man, little snowcone man

She took me upstairs and we sang this song
Been making snowcones all day long
Me and Jeannie’s making snowcone love
I asked Jeanie would you be my wife?
And sell me snowcones at half the price?
Sell me snowcones from the snowcone man

We got married and we said I do
It was a cone for me, it was a cone for you
Got married by the snowcone man
Had a reception at the snowcone stand
Had our homenymoon in snowcone land
Compliments of Thanks to the snowcone man

Repeat 1st verse

he bought me a yellow one and called me chicken.

and then in the 6th verse it goes:

Here's a shot at the picking pattern mainly in the intro for anyone who's interested:

Intro:

------------5-------2-0-------------0------5-2--0---2h3p2-0-------------
--2--3--4-----3----------0--3-3----3-3----------3------------3----------
----------------------------------1---1---------3-----------------------
-----------0-0-----4----------------------0-----3------------0----------
--0--1--5---------4---------2---2---------------0-----------------------

If anyone has a more precise or better tab of this please post it...
I would like to know how this is actually played... Thanks.

Adam Carroll plays this song with a capo at the 2nd fret. Thus the chords are C E F D7 G. I can work out the intro later on.
