TVA
J. Isbell
Album: The Fine Print: A Collection of Oddities and Rarities


INTRO: G  C  D  G

  G         C              D         G
I grew up 2 hours north of Birmingham
G                       C            D         G
Me and my daddy used to fish next to Wilson Dam
G                        C        D         G
He told some stories, Camaros and J. W. Dant
     D                       C             D         G
When I got a little older, I wouldn't, and now Daddy can't


CHORUS:
           C           D G
So I thank God for the TVA
      C           D G
Thank God for the TVA
      G                       C          D         G    G/F#  Em
Where me and my daddy used to bow to the river and pray
      C           D G
Thank God for the TVA


When I was 15 me and my girl sat out on the lock
Watchin' the racoons and terrapins dance on the rocks
She let me put my hand up under her shirt
I wanted her to want me so bad it hurt


CHORUS:
So I thank God for the TVA
Thank God for the TVA
Where me and my baby used to lay around and wait on the day
Thank God for the TVA


INTRO (3x), then D  C  D  G


My granddaddy told me when he was just 7 or so
His daddy lost work and they didn't have a row to hoe
Not too much to eat for 7 boys and 3 girls
They all lived in a tent, a bunch of sharecroppers versus the world

So his momma sat down and wrote a letter to F.D.R.
Then a couple days later, a couple county men came in a car
Rolled out in the field, told his daddy to put down the plow
And he helped build the damn, gave power to most of the South


CHORUS:
So I thank God for the TVA
Thank God for the TVA
Where Roosevelt let us all work for an honest day's pay
Thank God for the TVA
