Floyd County.
Dwight Yoakam.
Album: Last Chance For A Thousand Years.

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

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

D                       G           D
It's a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones,
          G        D              A          D
Yeah, the grief is strong for the man that's gone,
A          D               G             D
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans,
G                D            A           D
Cause it's 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 crying on this hillside today,
     D              A             D
That know about the humble way he lived.

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

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

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