THIS IS A ROUGH GUESS AS TO WHETHER THIS IS CORRECT OR NOT.  SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME
CAPO 2ND FRET



 D
SHE WAS SOMETHING IN HER FORMATIVE YEARS

       G
SHE'D HIDE HER ACCENT IT WOULD REAPPEAR

      D                                         A
WHEN SHE WOULD BRAG ON WHAT DADDY BOUGHT LAST NIGHT

         D
ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS WERE IN THAT CROWD

     G
TO TEASE A HAND FULL OF POOR KIDS OUT LOUD

      D           A              D
AND EVEN THEN I KNEW IT WASN'T RIGHT





-CHORUS-

  G     A    D               G
SMOKE RISE, YOU WERE NEVER KIND

  G    A                    D
GOOD NEWS I LEFT YOU ALL BEHIND

  G     A    D        A         G
SOME COULD HOPE THAT IT WOULD LAST

  A                                D
SMOKE RISE I'M GLAD YOU'RE IN MY PAST



-ADDITIONAL VERSES-

MOST OF THE KIDS WERE BETTER THAN ME
OR AT LEAST THEY THOUGHT SO AND IT WAS PLAIN TO SEE
THE CHILDREN WERE CRUEL AND I DIDN'T STAND A FIGHTING CHANCE
I WASN'T A JOCK, I WASN'T A BRAIN
WE WEREN'T WELL OFF AND MAMA COULDN'T EXPLAIN
WHY NO ONE WOULD TAKE A POOR BOY TO THE DANCE


THE OLDER KIDS FIND IT HARD TO EMBRACE
WHEN THEY BUST BLACK KIDS FROM ALL OVER THE PLACE
THE COUNTY TRIED TO PROVE THEIR SCHOOLS WERE ALL THE SAME
OL' JIM CROW TRIED TO INTEGRATE
BUT IN THE SOUTH IT'S HARD TO RELATE 
WHEN GRANDPA USED THE "N" WORD WITH NO SHAME
