INTRO



       D                G          D      G
It's a sad day in Floyd County Mr. Jones,
                  D
Yeah the grief is strong,
A                  D     A
 For the man that's gone.
           D               G             D      G
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans,
             D                A           D
'Cause its a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones.



        C           G              D
The six children he raised are all weepin',
         C         G          D
For this soft-spoken mountain man.
     C                G        D                     G
That fed 'em with the money he earned in those black mines,
        D             A              D
And the food he could raise with his hands.


                           
                               G          D      G
'Cause it's a sad day in Floyd County Mr. Jones,
                  D
Yeah the grief is strong,
A                  D     A
 For the man that's gone.
           D               G             D      G
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans,
             D                A           D
'Cause its a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones.



           C          G              D
Though the world knew nothing of his wisdom,
       C          G                D
Or the honest and simple things he did.
             C     G              D        G
There's some folks cryin' on this hillside today,
     D              A             D
That know about the humble way he lived.


 
                               G          D      G
'Cause it's a sad day in Floyd County Mr. Jones,
                  D
Yeah the grief is strong,
A                  D     A
 For the man that's gone.
           D               G             D      G
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans,
             D                A           D
'Cause its a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones.

INSTRUMENTAL



         C            G             D
Now this house in the holler stands empty,
           C              G         D
Though his presence in my memory is plain.
             C                 G       D               G 
You know I'd swear that I just saw him walking up that hill,
             D           G            D
I guess this place won't never be the same.




                               G          D      G
'Cause it's a sad day in Floyd County Mr. Jones,
                  D
Yeah the grief is strong,
A                  D     A
 For the man that's gone.
           D               G             D      G
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans,
             D                A           D
'Cause its a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones.
