INTRO: C

      C                 C/G             C            C/B             Dm
Would you believe this blacktop highway used to be a one-lane gravel road
          F               F/C           G             G/B               C
Back when Johnny Cash was just somebody Daddy went to school with years ago
                             C/G          C           C/B               Dm
When the cottonwoods reached to the sky & honeysuckle vines reached all around
    F                F/C            G            G/B               C
My eyes well up with memories every time I think about this little town, 'cause


CHORUS:
                       F                                 C
I know there's bigger cities, full of all the sights and sounds
                              Dm                                        C
Where people live in fear and lock their doors long before the sun goes down
                                 F                                        Am     F
The drive-in picture show's been closed for years, no superstores or mini-malls
       Dm         C                 F     G      C
Ah but everyday I thank the Lord He made Dyess Arkansas


I used to laugh at all the stories Daddy'd tell me about all the mischief he'd get in
Dream of penny candy nickels soda pops, Lord what a dollar'd buy back then
When livin' life was picture perfect like a Norman Rockwell painting of the South
Lord I'd give almost anything to hear my daddy tell his stories now, he'd say


CHORUS


SOLO: C  Dm  F  G  C


CHORUS:
                           F                                C
Yes I know there's bigger cities, but there ain't no better town
                                  Dm                                        C                    
Folks here don't live in fear and lock their doors long before the sun goes down
                           F                                              Am     F
The population sign ain't changed in years I guessed it's destined to be small
       Dm          C                F    G       C
Ah but everyday I thank the Lord He made Dyess Arkansas
      Dm        C                 F    G       C
Yeah everyday I thank the Lord He made Dyess Arkansas
